4.0 out of 5 stars Very entertaining, 4 April 2010
I really liked this film. At first I thought it was just your typical, run of the mill horror film but I was pleasantly surprised. Although it can be scary in parts once you realise what is happening there are no hide behind cushion parts! I won't say too much because I don't want to give away the film's premise. All I can say is if you like a film that makes you think then this is the one for you. If you're in the mood for something easy to watch then give this one a miss. I personally enjoyed trying to work out what was going on and once the film had finished was still trying to work it out! I would definitely recommend this film it is clever with lots of twists and turns and… Read more

I was expecting a lot from A History of Violence due to the fact it had received Oscar nominations and the countless great reviews but unfortunately for me it just didn't work.

I think the film should have focused more on the suspense of Tom's past being found out - they could have really built up the tension but it all… Read more

3.0 out of 5 stars A good thriller, 7 Sep 2008
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… Read more
