A big-budget psycho-thriller that lets two of our more "sedate" leading men cut loose with some entertainingly juicy performances.

A dinâmica entre Hurt e Costner carrega Instinto Secreto: exibindo uma imensa química em suas cenas, os dois atores estabelecem um sentimento misto de tensão e camaradagem entre seus personagens.

The audience is apt to forget its own vicarious indulgence in some fairly perverse, psychologically unhinged acted out fantasy, as Kevin Costner masterminds erotically tinged guilty pleasures.

Costner's double-act with Hurt is a wicked pleasure, like The Odd Couple with a psychopathic twist.

It does keep you guessing until the end, but Mr Brooks turns out to be Mr Average after all.

There's plenty to recommend this old-fashioned serial-killer flick.

With a terrific cast and a superb script, this is a hugely enjoyable suspense thriller of the sort that they really don't make anymore.

Despite numerous cutesy twists, it's the gradual unveiling of a warped morality that lures you into Brooks' world.

Although flawed, this remains a blackly funny noir treat thanks to Costner and Hurt's double-act.

Mr Brooks is a new spin on murder-by-numbers: one fascinating character, two outstanding performances, and subplots too numerous for the film's coherence or the viewer's sanity.

There's more to every character than meets the eye and all the relationships have a twist

Twisty and seductive, this classy dramatic thriller has so much going on that we almost forget we're watching a trashy potboiler.

A nutzoid chiller devoted to proving the strange, unseemly notion that even bloodthirsty serial killers are more enjoyable company than bad MySpace comedians.

Just when it seemed the serial-killer film had been done to death, Mr. Brooks brings something fresh to the genre.

I found this movie to be entertaining, but I was almost disturbed to find it so. How many other movies have a serial killer as their protagonist and actually make you root for them?

That thing doesn't quite fit a category, it's not really chilling and only inconsistently satirical or funny. Still, it is often entertaining, strange and bumpy enough that you can forgive the stiff parts.

According to some, we live in an age of moral relativism, and MR. BROOKS, a clever script with mediocre performances, explores that concept with nicely honed dash of irony

It is entertaining to watch Costner and Hurt fight for control of one body.
