Product Overview

Consider Mr. Brooks. A successful businessman, a generous philanthropist, a loving father and devoted husband. Seemingly, he's perfect. But Mr. Brooks has a secret -- he is an insatiable serial killer, so lethally clever that no one has ever suspected him -- until now. Academy Award winner Kevin Costner stars as Earl Brooks, a man who has managed to keep his two incompatible worlds from intersecting by controlling his cunning, wicked alter ego Marshall (Academy Award winner William Hurt) whom he blames for his wrongdoings. But now, as Mr. Brooks succumbs to one last murderous urge, an amateur photographer (Dane Cook) witnesses the crime. Suddenly Brooks finds himself entangled in the dark agenda of an opportunistic bystander, as well as hunted by the unorthodox and tenacious detective Tracy Atwood (Demi Moore). Can Mr. Brooks outsmart his adversaries and conceal his shocking double life from his wife (Marg Helgenberger) and daughter (Danielle Panabaker) or will someone expose his crimes and his identity once and for all in this unpredictable and electrifying new thriller.

Review Mr. Brooks is a curious mix of the campy and the intelligent, of high concept and low psychology. In spite of these contradictions, or perhaps because of them, it works. This is a tense and engaging thriller, the kind of movie where the audience may feel a little discomfort because the main character is an anti-hero, but will be involved because he's so damn smart. And unlike the recent (and not entirely dissimilar) Fracture, which built its ending on character assassination and unlikely contrivances, Mr. Brooks stays true to its principals and their principles to the last frame...Ultimately, Mr. Brooks could be viewed as a classy B-grade thriller with an A-level cast. Aspects of the film reminded me of a little movie called The Stepfather, with Terry O'Quinn as a seemingly meek man who serially kills his wives and stepchildren when they disappoint him. There's a little of him in Earl, although Mr. Brooks is a better planner than The Stepfather. Smart characters make thrillers interesting, and Earl passes the litmus test. Like him or hate him, one can't help but admire the guy's thoroughness.

Review Mr. Brooks starts well at a black tie dinner as Mr. Brooks (Kevin Costner) accepts the honor of Portland Man of the Year and later, goaded by his imaginary playmate Marshall (William Hurt), goes out and murders a young couple. He claims he wants to give up killing, but really, he finds it fun, and therein lays the seeds of a nasty and brilliant black comic thriller. But then director Bruce A. Evans and his co-writer Raynold Gideon have to go and kill the buzz, introducing the wholly unbelievable police detective Tracy Atwood (Demi Moore) and so much enough extraneous plot that it becomes the cinematic equivalent of a Rube Goldberg contraption sucking the life right out of the movie...Moore is grating; the character is grating; and Atwood receives far, far too much screen time. But the film's missteps do not stop there. The writers add further complications for Mr. Brooks in the form of domestic issues in his own home. There is so much plot in the movie that eventually the whole thing just implodes under all that extra weight. Like a plane carrying too much cargo, it simply crashes and burns. The movie is a missed opportunity. It has all the ingredients of a delightfully twisted, sleek little thriller.
