News & Interviews for Mr. Brooks
Critic Reviews for Mr. Brooks
The good news: there are many twists, turns, subplots and surprises that the coming attractions don't even hint at. The bad news: these twists and turns are so preposterous, or so irrelevant, that they undermine the movie they're meant to tart up.
This wannabe highbrow horror-thriller is a graceless, unfocused piece of work with a central narrative as tonally schizophrenic and wayward as its lead.
Mr. Brooks spins a web that will wrap you up in nightmares.
The movie is so well made, and so compelling as a portrait of a man at war with himself, that, right up until the end, many people will probably be entertained by its intricately preposterous story.
[Director] Evans keeps flirting with a potentially rich idea only to surround it with indigestible amounts of silliness.
Audience Reviews for Mr. Brooks
It's enjoyable, but nothing to taxing to watch.
Kevin Costner as an uber-analytical serial killer (with William Hurt as his visible/audible subconscious, a riot) versus an angry feminist detective Demi Moore. Loved every frame of this, from the first to the last.
