Mr. Brooks
The magnificent Kevin Costner stars as Earl Brooks, a successful businessman and family man who has thus far concealed his alter-ego, the ‘Thumbprint Killer’. Neither his wife or daughter could conceive of the truth. But as Mr. Brooks succumbs to one more murderous urge, an amateur photographer (Dane Cook) witnesses the crime. Suddenly Brooks finds himself trapped in the twisted agenda of an opportunistic bystander, as well as hunted by an unorthodox and tenacious investigator, Tracy Atwood (Demi Moore).

We’ve had serial killers as central characters before, but never presented in such a gleefully silly way as this. Earl Brooks has a handful of little eccentric calling cards: a bloody thumbprint (not his, we presume) and a thorough vacuuming of the crime scene - As Demi Moore’s character later explains, he only kills victims who own vacuum cleaners.

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...

The film feels sleazy and nasty --- but without the pulp kick of filmmakers who know how to do sleazy and nasty...

The appeal of Mr. Brooks is as obvious as it is hard to resist: Kevin Costner as a serial killer...

Evans's use of light and shadow is the one real bright spot, giving the film an air of menace that the rest of the movie can't sustain. The scariest things about Mr Brooks are the main character's collection of bow ties and that the creators are promising two sequels...
