Movie Info

Jennifer Lopez stars in this gritty, emotional drama as police officer Sharon Pogue, who covers up a painful past with an anger that fuels her job performance in one of Chicago's toughest precincts. Although her partner Robby (Terrence Howard) is concerned about Sharon, she won't confide even in her closest friend. Sharon's life takes a turn, however, when she's saved from a violent assault by Catch Lambert (James Caviezel), a haunted, enigmatic do-gooder whose guardian-angel deeds make him a

Lopez is fairly convincing as a tough cookie by day and a lonesome soft-centre by night, but despite their best efforts, neither she nor Caviezel can fight free of the turgid script.

Together, Lopez and Caviezel make quite a pair. Sorrowful yet hip, they seem to be inventing a new mood: designer melancholia.

Its protagonists, their situation and its mechanical but mushy resolution are never remotely believable.

Darts back and forth from being a psychological thriller to a vaguely metaphysical drama to a fate-driven romance. Such a schema may, in the right hands, make for a powerful, all-seeing movie; here, it all becomes a blur.

A muddled film, part supernatural, part romantic drama, part urban thriller and not satisfying on any level.

May 4, 2011 Full Review Source: EmanuelLevy.Com

Lopez is now such a multimedia icon that it's easy to forget that her acting skills are what earned her first major notice.

J. Lo's mass appeal will bring them in, but the mediocrity of the film won't give them much more.

Call an ambulance. This mess is in need of a bodybag.

A muddled blend of supernatural thriller, romantic melodrama, and urban police-crime, this is yet another disappointing Jennifer Lopez star vehicle--could anyone choose better roles for her?

December 27, 2006 Full Review Source: Screendaily

Only in the last five minutes does Mandoki let the hammer drop. Before that, Angel Eyes is quite compelling.

Lopez's work grows layers that are then gradually stripped away, exposing a raw, naked emotional vulnerability by film's end that is quite disarming.

Angel Eyes is not a movie for watching. It is a movie for passing by and avoiding.

Viewers with a low tolerance for schmaltz may suffer; one heartfelt speech even drew nervous titters from the otherwise indulgent preview crowd.

I have to admit I don't care much for "big secret" movies, and this is one of them.

If I have a begrudging admiration for the project, it's because it stays so resolute in its refusal to follow a pattern, though I dare to question if the staunch avoidance of clichés is a virtue when it translates into no story at all.

The love story is central to the entire movie without being too cloying or sappy. Two different actors may have taken this movie to other levels, but I felt Jennifer Lopez has never been better cast in a film.

December 17, 2002 Full Review Source:

Well-acted drama that is unfortunately hampered by severe mis-marketing and a disappointing ending.

October 30, 2002 Full Review Source: ViewLondon

Angel Eyes probably reads better on the page; it lacks the dramatic power of really good cinema.

It is a pleasure to see Ms. Lopez expand her acting range, and to see Mr. Caviezel move into the kind of major role he deserves.

...the commanding performances by the two leads more than make up for the excessively overlong running time.

Viewers are going to feel pretty cheated if they walked in hoping to bite their nails and then left realizing they should've brought a hanky instead.

After enduring about 30 minutes of this near-deadly romantic drama, you begin to wonder where the radiant star of Selena and Out of Sight has gone to.

Audience Reviews for Angel Eyes

A truly terrible movie in every sense, it had no idea what it wanted to say or why it existed. The sci-fi element just came out of nowhere and felt extremely odd. The performances were terrible, Jim Caviezel and Jennifer Lopez had zero chemistry and couldn't survive on their own either. It's ultimately a love story that no one wants to see.

I've always thought J.Lo decent as an actress and here, she delivers a nuanced performance evincing the struggle of a woman who tries to be tough on the outside but still crumbles on the inside. Caviezel is amazing, as per usual. Lovely trumpet playing too. Some really nice flashback editing and aphorisms in the script.
