However hellish Brooks' acts might be, we admire how coolly he executes them. So rather than wish jail or worse on Mr. Brooks, the audience joins him in reveling in how neatly he disposes of his victims. Hollywood is, after all, so good at what it does.

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

A dinmica entre Hurt e Costner carrega Instinto Secreto: exibindo uma imensa qumica em suas cenas, os dois atores estabelecem um sentimento misto de tenso 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.
October 12, 2007
Costner's double-act with Hurt is a wicked pleasure, like The Odd Couple with a psychopathic twist.
October 12, 2007
It does keep you guessing until the end, but Mr Brooks turns out to be Mr Average after all.
October 12, 2007
There's plenty to recommend this old-fashioned serial-killer flick.
October 11, 2007
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.
October 10, 2007
Despite numerous cutesy twists, it's the gradual unveiling of a warped morality that lures you into Brooks' world.
October 10, 2007
Although flawed, this remains a blackly funny noir treat thanks to Costner and Hurt's double-act.
October 4, 2007
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.
July 28, 2007
There's more to every character than meets the eye and all the relationships have a twist
July 21, 2007
Twisty and seductive, this classy dramatic thriller has so much going on that we almost forget we're watching a trashy potboiler.
June 26, 2007
A nutzoid chiller devoted to proving the strange, unseemly notion that even bloodthirsty serial killers are more enjoyable company than bad MySpace comedians.
June 16, 2007
Just when it seemed the serial-killer film had been done to death, Mr. Brooks brings something fresh to the genre.
June 16, 2007
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?
June 15, 2007
Mr. Brooks spins a web that will wrap you up in nightmares.
June 9, 2007
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.
June 9, 2007
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
June 9, 2007
It is entertaining to watch Costner and Hurt fight for control of one body.
