Movie Reviews Mr Brooks

Eli Manning's Movie Review of Mr. Brooks

Best film of the year! Takes you into the world of a man who is trying to overcome an addiction. The addiction of loving to kill people. When someone usually has a passion such as this it will lead a man in prision. But Mr. Brooks is a different kind of guy - he just happens to be very intelligent!

The plot details Mr. Brooks killing again after a two year absense and the sudden emmergence of a reluctant protege, a type-A detective trying to track him down and a daughter who might have the same 'disease' as him.

This may sound like your typical Hollywood studio plot film but let me assure you it's definitely not as those plot summaries are very loose.

Writer/Director Bruce Evans seems to have come out of nowhere to give us this magical film that I hope gets seen by as many people as possible. Audience members please give this film the justice it deserves.

Robert's Movie Review of Mr. Brooks

Mr. Brooks (Kevin Costner) is a successful businessman, a respected philanthropist, a loving father and devoted husband, and probably the nicest guy you'd ever meet. But he has a secret – he has a sickness that drives him to kill; and over the years he's become a relentless serial killer. Mr. Brooks dislikes killing, but his alter ego Marshall (William Hurt) loves the thrill of it and is constantly pressuring him to kill again. As Mr. Brooks succumbs to Marshall's persistence and murders a new couple, an amateur photographer named Mr. Smith (Dane Cook) witnesses the crime and suddenly Mr. Brooks finds that he must become entangled in the dark agenda of this opportunistic bystander, as well as hunted by the unorthodox and tenacious detective Tracy Atwood (Demi Moore). Can he outsmart his cunning adversaries and conceal his shocking double life from his wife and daughter – or will someone expose his crimes and his identity once and for all?

"Mr. Brooks" is a delightfully twisted and intelligent movie, and writer/director Bruce Evans deserves lots of kudos for creating such an impressive, engrossing murder story. The casting choices were extremely odd, but somehow they worked very well together. Costner played the dual-life role with prowess and Moore was fearless and cunning as Detective Tracy Atwood. Hurt was entertaining as Brooks' alter ego, but the monotone delivery of all his lines did get annoying after a while. Mr. Brooks' wife Emma (Marg Helgenberger of "CSI" fame) didn't have much involvement in the movie, but to me it was a bit distracting to see her there because it's hard not to think of "CSI" when she's onscreen. The wonderfully intricate plot has many twists and turns, as well as a wham-bam ending that'll get your adrenaline pumping. What's even better is all the excellent usage of misdirection… the director leads you to believe one thing and then blindsides you like a Mack truck with the truth. It kept me guessing the whole movie and most of the time I guessed wrong. My last critique is that "Mr. Brooks" was a little on the long side. It's only two hours long, but there are some slow parts towards the middle of the movie that really dragged a bit. But overall, "Mr. Brooks" is an excellently crafted and wickedly engrossing movie. Well done!

All in all, I'd give this movie 4 STARS (out of 5). Re-watch value: HIGH

Brett's Review of Mr. Brooks

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. Earl Brooks is a man who has managed to keep his two incompatible worlds from intersecting by controlling his cunning, wicked alter ego Marshall. But now, as Mr. Brooks succumbs to one last murderous urge, an amateur photographer 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. Can Mr. Brooks outsmart his adversaries and conceal his shocking double life from his wife and daughter--or will someone expose his crimes and his identity once and for all?

I have to admit this was one of the best movies I saw all weekend. It was filled with twists and turns and the best part about the movie was the conversations Mr. Brooks has with his alter-ego Marshall. I thought the movie was well played by Kevin Costner, William Hurt, and Demi Moore, they all did fantastic jobs. I was completely drawn into the dark, twisted but logical world of Mr. Brooks.

Overall Rating: 4 Stars (out of 5). Re-Watch Value: High (I will own this on DVD).

Trivia: Danielle Panabaker plays the daughter of Mr. Brooks (Kevin Costner) and Mrs. Brooks (Marg Helgenberger). Panabaker's younger sister, Kay Panabaker plays the recurring role of Lindsey Willows, the daughter of Catherine Willows (also played by Marg Helgenberger) on "CSI: Crime Scene Investigation" for CBS.
