Secret in Their Eyes 2015 Review SSMR

Secret in Their Eyes (2015)

Grizzled counter-terrorism detective solves cold-case murder of Julia Roberts’ daughter.

Awesomely shot and traditionally scored, showing no sign of a modest budget. The story is perfectly paced and has a meaty twist ending.

Seems to be trying to cover all of the staples of the detective genre e.g. sports game, work-based love interest, a tunnel chase, funny sidekick etc.

All performances are above functional, with Roberts’ portrayal of a grieving mother weighing in as the most impressive.

Provides a gripping riff on True Detective and Luther’s first seasons, with none of the sex but more emotion and similarly strong character building.

#-#-#-#- - 4.1/5
