  1. 75
    A surprisingly effective film.
  2. Lopez is so remarkably unaffected and guileless that she manages to carry the film through its mood swing, if not successfully to its conclusion.
  3. Adds up to a carefully crafted romantic drama of considerable insight and emotional impact that provides Lopez an acting challenge she meets with ease.
  4. A cumbersome dud, grows draggier with each new revelation.
  5. This is all about getting your life back on course before you can fall in love. Which isn't such a bad idea for a movie, as long as there's something more. Unfortunately, there isn't.
  6. 30
    Doesn't work at any level, but the total lack of chemistry between its central couple is fatal.
  7. 20
    A romantic thriller of more than usual ineptitude.

    This movie was very moving. I really enjoyed it. The storyline is interesting and not predictable. You are constantly trying to put the puzzle piece's of Catch's life together and intrigued by the relationship between him and Sharon. Expand

    Having just recently seen the latest offering by David Cronenberg, "Angel Eyes" sort of plays like "A History of Music". If not for a godawful sequence in which we see Sharon(Jennifer Lopez) and "Catch"(James Caviezel) fall in love via montage, "Angel Eyes" is reasonably mysterious, and more importantly, rare in a studio film, subtle. In an extremely obscure way, the familial subplot reminds me of Cameron Crowe's "Say Anything", because both films end with the man coming to his woman's rescue after an uncomfotable meeting with her father. At various times, we think "Catch" might be a ghost, or a child molester, or perhaps a child molesting ghost. One half of his secret is interesting, but the other half might be too melodramatic, and yet Jennifer Lopez and Jim Caviezel redeem some potentially yucky scenes by resisting the temptation to go for the Oscar. Lopez needs to stay out of the tabloids. Jenny-from-the-block makes a very convincing cop. Expand
