Did not expect to like this film half as much as I did. Even my wife, who is not keen on violent films admitted the next day that she found the film enjoyable despite it subject matter. What we both agreed on was: that although the plot gets quite complex, the story is clearly told and you always understand what is going on. You are never sure how things are going to turn out and so even near the end of the film you are still thoroughly engaged.
There is a twist (or two) at the end, one of which I could have done without, but still it gets five stars. Recommended viewing; whatever you think of Mr. Costner's abilities as an actor?

I guess my title gives my thoughts away a little. I saw this film walked to the foyer and bought another ticket to see it again.

Each scene, word or phrase, action is just perfectly honed and crafted.

If you need to take your shoes off to count to twenty you might find it hard going. There aren't many loud bangs, gunfights or other usual things of a routine (read dull) Hollywood thriller. This is just perfectly nuanced, perfectly acted cinema at it's best. This is haute cuisine to the usual mcdonalds.

Who knew Kevin could act?

i found this movie really refreshing and better than expected - what really gave it an edge over the myriad of films that portray psycopathic behaviour is the fact that Costner is the nice guy - an irresistabel urge to kill is presented as a character flaw rather like comfort eating might be for the rest of us while. His mischievous and resistant alter ego played by William Hurt almost gives the film a buddy movie feel and when they tour the city looking for victims with a third deranged soul it almost feels as if your watching 3 men bond over a fishing trip - there's nothing of the lonely 2 dimensional killer caught in the shadows with a blood dripping knife who is glimpsed as a 2 dimensional symbol of our fears - our kev has a fleshed out life and loves his daughter and wife - in short he is, apart from his unhealthy habit, a role model .
The plot is clever, unpredictable and a fresh take on a hackneyed theme

Mr Brooks is a slow burning thriller. Kevin Costner plays the protagonist who is a well respected businessman, husband and father with a secret addiction to killing and William Hurt plays the `voice in his head'. A good film with some great acting from Dane Cook an actor I've never even heard of before, for me his portrayal of the wannabe killer keen to learn from the expert made the film. As for Demi Moore's character!! OMG she is dreadful and I actually went off the film because her character was so typical and made me cringe, she is the stereotypical hardnosed female cop....expect lots of gum chewing and sentences with mother*cker in them. I can't describe how bad she is....there was no need to include her in a film that is trying to be dark and disturbing. Also the daughter story was a bit far fetched and again in my opinion didn't need to be included in the film. Overall Mr Brooks kept my attention and the premise is good but I wouldn't say it was the best film I'd ever seen. A good film...not fantastic.

A superior serial killer movie whose exploration of the protagonist's psychology owes a small debt to TV's Dexter. Mr Brooks finds Kevin Costner and William Hurt on particularly fine form (although Demi Moore's back story needlessly lacks a little credibly).

Kevin Costner (remember him?) stars as Earl Brooks, a highly respected local businessman man, loving Husband and Father, who hides a dark secret, a psychofrenic urge to kill.The urge proves too much and when he kills two lovers in their apartment he is seen and caught on film at the scene by a sleezy photographer.The photographer (Dane Cook) though doesn't turn him into the Police or blackmail him though, he wants to learn to kill like Brooks and experience the 'thrill' first hand.

Costner is superb in this film and proves something that we tend to forget, what a very, very good actor he is.Equally good is the reliable William Hurt as Marshal, Mr Brook's alter-ego, this was a great idea for the film as they discussed how they would solve issues and problems together in Mr Brook's life.Supporting cast too is a fine one, Demi Moore (remember her?) is good as the Cop pursuing the killer, CSI Vegas' Marg Heldenberger stars as Mr Brooks oblivious Wife, though I felt her character took a back seat during the second half of the movie.The lovely Reiko Aylesworth of 24 also puts in an appearance as the lawyer out to screw Demi Moore in a divorce proceedings against her money grabbing ex-husband.

The script is clever and intelligent with a good dose of black humour and some neat twists, including one all mighty one at the end!!!

Highly recommended.

Format: DVD
WOW! I watched this film last night with my hubby and it was so good, I watched it again straight away with my daughter! It kept me riveted to the spot and my hubby actually gave it 8 out of 10 which is unheard of!

It follows the story of Earl Brooks, (Costner), who is named business man of the year at the start of the movie and shows us that he is a perfectly normal man with a loving wife and daughter. It's not long though before we meet Marshall, (William Hurt), Earl's evil and twisted alter ego. He wants nothing more than to kill innocent people and he always gets what he wants from Earl.

So off we go on a journey to kill another unsuspecting couple. Only this time, Earl makes a mistake by killing these people with their curtains open. He quickly closes them and continues his mission, all the while he's being chastised by Marshall.

Next day at work his daughter turns up unannounced and says she's dropped out of school, (we later find out why and it's brilliant!), and there is a man, (Dane Cook), with an envelope who is keen to speak to him. It turns out that the envelope contains photographs of Earl at the murder scene. What he wants in exchange for his silence is to accompany Earl on another murder.

There's also a sub plot that runs along side the main storyline. This is police detective Tracy Atwood, (Demi Moore), who is searching for the thumbprint killer, (Brooks), going through a messy divorce and is also being stalked by another serial killer, the hangman, she had caught before, and who has subsequently escaped from jail.

There are several twists and turns to this story that kept me interested both times I watched it. It didn't lose any of it's power the second time through either.
