About the Movie
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. Academy Award winner Kevin Costner stars as Earl Brooks, a man who has managed to keep his two incompatible worlds from intersecting by controlling his cunning, wicked alter ego Marshall (Academy Award winner William Hurt) whom he blames for his wrongdoings. But now, as Mr. Brooks succumbs to one last murderous urge, an amateur photographer (Dane Cook) 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 (Demi Moore). Can Mr. Brooks outsmart his adversaries and conceal his shocking double life from his wife (Marg Helgenberger) and daughter (Danielle Panabaker) or will someone expose his crimes and his identity once and for all in this unpredictable and electrifying new thriller.

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: Mr. Brooks spins a web that will wrap you up in nightmares.
Fresh: 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.
Rotten: Please don't tell me it was supposed to be played for laughs all along, because I don't buy it. Too late to save it from doom, the twists and snafus in Mr. Brooks start coming too fast for the audience to absorb, and the movie turns delusional.
Rotten: You know you're in real trouble when Demi Moore's playing the most sympathetic character you have.
Let me be the first to tell you how awesome this movie is. Mr. Brooks, has everything you want in a movie, action, a little comedy, it has you thinking what is going to happen next, Mr. Brooks is a rich loving father and husband, but he also has a dark side, he is addicted to killing. this is one of those rear movies that will have you rooting for the bad guy, and not demi moore.
This movie is awsome!
This is one of the best movies I have watched in a long time. It is a must have for any one.
Finally a good thriller
