I?ve always been surprised this movie wasn?t more liked by critics. But when one critic doesn?t like a movie, all others can?t like it. For critics, they all have to stick together. But in secret, I?ll bet a bunch of critics loved. Mr. Brooks is well thought out evil. They say there were too many subplots. Excuse me, but there are only two subplots, and both lead to the climax and conclusion of

Mr. Brooks was and still is a very interesting and unique thriller in my opinion. While outlandish in some regards and scary realistic in others I found the balance between the two was well placed by director Bruce Evans. Sometimes the fiercest criminals are the ones we do not know about and Kevin Costner does well to convey internal conflict with his sadistic addiction. William Hurt exceeds in

My hubby rented this, we had no idea what it was about, and it was pretty darn good. (yes, we live under a rock!) Lots of twists and plenty of suspense. I usually watch these things with my ears plugged and my eyes covered, can't stand thrillers, that being said, I was able to get through this one with little "cover" Not too gory. It was sold to me as a "chick flick" LMAO, it has Costner in it,

Mr. Brooks is most effective when it's dealing with Earl and his conscience. Hurt and Costner are terrific together as two sides of the same personality and, again, the casting is what it's all about. Full Review

USA Today
Far-fetched, flimsy and uninvolving. Full Review

ReelViews
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. Full Review

Mr. Brooks manages to be deeply loathsome -- no small feat for a film that's shallowly amateurish. Full Review
