Angel Eyes: Directed by Luis Mandoki. With Jennifer Lopez, Jim Caviezel, Jeremy Sisto, Terrence Howard. A mysterious man is drawn to a feisty female police officer and a unusual relationship ensues, as not everything is as it seems.

“Mandokiu0026#39;s u0026#39;Angel Eyesu0026#39; is one movie that I had walked out on, twice. But for some reason, I stayed through the whole film during the third viewing, and Iu0026#39;m glad I did. Now, the problem with u0026#39;Angel Eyesu0026#39; is the incoherence during the entire first hour. The story unfolds into something different each time while not staying within the frame of the main story. Itu0026#39;s confusing. Itu0026#39;s misleading. That works for some movies but not for u0026#39;Angel Eyesu0026#39;. The reason why I had walked out earlier was because at some point the movie really drags but once the characters confront their own pain, the conflicts are presented and somewhat resolved. I appreciate Mandokiu0026#39;s attempt in telling the story of two lonely characters: One who is traumatized by a past event that changed his life and the other who has been neglected (almost disowned) by her family because she did the right thing. In spite of the mess in the beginning, he gets most of it right towards the end. The confrontation scene between Sharon and her family at the u0026#39;vow-renewal partyu0026#39; and the scene where Catch visits his wife and childu0026#39;s grave are very well executed. I liked the chemistry between Caviezel and Lopez. James Caviezel delivers a quietly subtle performance. It seems as though the part was made for him. Jennifer Lopez is a mixture. While she was terrible in some scenes, there were some shining moments of excellent acting, especially in the beginning and the latter half. She also carries off the copper role very well, just like she did in u0026#39;Out of Sightu0026#39;. So, I guess it wasnu0026#39;t such a bad watch as I had thought earlier. Just needed some patience.”
