Mr. Brooks

Mr. Brooks stars Kevin Costner and William Hurt and is directed by Bruce A. Evans (Starman, Kuffs). With a supporting cast that includes Dane Cook and Demi Moore, you eyes will be glued to the screen.

Earl Brooks (Kevin Costner) is a highly successful business man with a devoted wife and a loving daughter. He also has a secret that he has kept for years. He is addicted to killing. With the help of his counterpart Marshall, played guinnessly by William Hurt, he has been known as the notorious Thumb Print Killer. After going to meetings to help his sickness, he has been clean for two years until Marshall gets the best of him and a sneeky eye-witness (Dane Cook) wants in on some of the sadistic action.

A cleverly written script with an original concept. The story seem more real than fiction which proves how cunning the film really is. The only thing is that this film has so many twists that it’s hard to keep up with at times and ends up becoming somewhat confusing. The witty dialog and juicy performances are what holds the film in place.

A great cast including Dane Cook and Demi Moore and suitable characters considering the mindset of Mr. Brooks. I loved William Hurts performace as the evil couterpart of Earl Brooks. For it’s performances alone, this film is definately a must-see. As for Bruce A. Evans, I sure do look forward to his next work.

Finally, a smart twist-filled thriller that never goes over-the-top and stays within’ the reality zone. William Hurt and Kevin Costner’s performances are outstanding and the side performance are exceptionally good. Mr. Brooks is one of the more well crafted thrillers to come along in years. It is an overall versatile film that has some sleek performaces that are not to be missed.

  1. I really liked this movie, although after I first saw it I wasn’t sure if I did or not because the ending was so odd to me that I had to think about it. However, I think that is the good thing about this movie, I had to think about it. The main thing I liked about this movie was that it was from the Serial Killers point of view and not the cops. I also think Kevin Costner played a very good tormented serial killer. Much better than some of the other roles her has had.

  2. Mr. Brooks was a great film!
    It was original, serious, clever, and even funny at times. It was shocking and I was often on the edge of my seat. It had a little bit of everything. And the acting was phenomenal.
    I very highly recommend Mr.Brooks to anyone that hasn’t seen it.
