Angel Eyes (2001)
[] Buy posters from this movie
by Greg Muskewitz

"'Eyes' cast hypnotic spell."
4 stars

Angel Eyes is a haunting love story with Jennifer Lopez as a “one-of-the-guys”-type cops, savior of a faceless man in a horrible auto-wreck, whom we assume is the mysterious man (Jim Caviezel) following her around some time later.

A while back I caught a glimpse of part of the TV preview for Angel Eyes before tuning it out and enforcing my New Year’s resolution. But what tiny bit I did see, the movie appeared to be marketed as a mystery/thriller. Over the duration of the movie, I couldn’t get rid of the feeling that the glum atmosphere was leading me down a path that I wasn’t expecting. It never turned into a “thriller” so-to-say, which is by no means a disappointment, but rather a contented surprise. The premise is intriguing, and director Luis Mandoki (Message in a Bottle), still following his love-theme, does nothing to weaken or detract from the big picture. The atmosphere is thick and weighty, and Lopez’s role shows how she has grown over the past five or so years. There is the occasional slip-up (the clandestine lovemaking on the hidden shore, a hefty spout between the lovers’ misunderstandings, etc.), but it only serves as a small dink on the thick armor. Lopez has also never been photographed as lovely as by the late Piotr Sobocinski, as he frames her like blooming peach-colored rose petals.

Written by Gerald DiPego. With Terence Howard, Shirley Knight, and Sonia Braga.
