Very affecting two-hander with oustanding performances..,
This review is from: Angel Eyes [DVD]  (DVD)
Jennifer Lopez's best work after the universally admired Out Of Sight. This time she is a tough street cop whose life is saved by an almost ethereal stranger (Jim Caviezel). They then tentatively begin a relationship, one which forces them both to confront the emotional traumas they are each carrying around.
Personally, I liked the way the movie toys with our expectations, something that I didn't find erratic or in any way trite. In fact, both leads are splendid and rather than compartmentalize Angel Eyes as a chicks' movie, I would say that it has a perfectly balanced appeal for both men and women, provided they haven't an aversion to Lopez founded on her offscreen reputation for unbearable diva-like behaviour.
Rent it first if you're not sure, but this is a good film.
