MR. BROOKS is a surprisingly good film, one that from the response of critics and audiences at the time of the theatrical release last Spring might make the casual viewer pass by the DVD. But step into this strange world of the successful, philanthropic, loving husband and father Mr. Brooks and discover one of the more clever twists on the themes of addiction and serial killings, courtesy of a smart script by writer/director Bruce A. Evans and Raynold Gideon. Earl Brooks (Kevin Costner, in what may be his best role) has it all: wealth, fame, Man of the Year, a gorgeous home in Portland, a stunning wife Emma (Marg Helgenberger), a perky college freshman daughter Jane (Danielle Panabaker) - and a secret: though he has not been active for two year while attending AA meeting for his addiction to killing, Brooks has a history of being a serial 'Thumbprint' killer. Brooks is accompanied in his darker life by an alter ego Marshall (William Hurt) who encourages him to take up his old addiction to killing 'because he is so good at it'. Brooks follows the need and performs another staged murder of a couple during intercourse. Mistake - he forgets to close the drapes in the room, opening the possibility that he has been seen, a possibility which is realized when he encounters a funky young 'Mr. Smith' (Dane Cook) who just happened to have photographed Brooks' latest adventure and blackmails him into promising to allow 'Mr. Smith' to accompany him on his next murder! Twists and turns occur: daughter Jane returns from college having dropped out apparently because she is pregnant, though there are darker reasons for her move. A spunky detective Tracy Atwood (Demi Moore), a distraught woman plowing her way through an ugly divorce, takes interest in the newest episode of the return of the Thumbprint killer and faces her own demons from her past experiences as a policewoman. Feeling that Atwood may uncover his crime and thus history, Brooks plans a strange caper that includes 'Mr. Smith' and fearing that daughter Jane may have inherited his bad genes for killing addiction, he takes care of her threatening business before the surprise conclusion of the story. To tell more of the plot would deprive the viewer of the any secrets that unfold in the hands of Brooks and his man Marshall. The story is smart, well scripted, intense, and exciting. And in addition to the very fine performances by the stars, there are excellent cameos by Yasmine Delawari, Aisha Hinds, Jason Lewis, Reiko Aylesworth, and Matt Schulze. Give this poorly reviewed little thriller a chance. It is very much worth watching on every level. Grady Harp

It's about time!! Costner & Hurt played well off each other but I think Cook was miscast. This film is really good & creepy. There are plot twists to keep one guessing. Demi Moore was good too!

It is a nice departure from his nice and cuddly films of old, where he played the genteel family man for Costner. He plays a nice family man that happens to like to kill nude lovers. As this movie has all the beginnings of a well-done horror film, it debauches into a violent, chaotic, nonsensical mess. Don't tell me it was a dream?

I could never have thought of Kevin Costner as playing a serial killer, boy was I wrong. This flick was awesome! A must see, I highly recommend it to anyone. Acting was great, plot was great, and Costner's character made the movie excellent! Definitley a must see!
