Mr. Brooks (2007)
Movie Review by The Gravedigger
11.07.07

Mr. Brooks (2007) I must say that this was better than I thought it would be. Kevin Costner is a guy named Earl Brooks, who is 'Businessman of the Year', seemingly mild-mannered, Clark-Kentish type guy who also happens to be addicted to killing. He goes to AA meetings, as the twelve-step program seems to help him be 'normal' and control his murderous urges.

However, he goes and kills again, by the prodding of his evil alter-ego, portrayed by William Hurt. Throughout the movie he talks to this 'invisible friend', who is really that aspect of himself that he doesn't want to acknowledge. It's a little too staged but it works.

On this first killing he's done in two years he messes up, as he does it in plain site of an open window---and a guy living across the way sees this and approaches him at work the next day. This guy (Dane Cook) doesn't want to turn him in to the police or want money - he wants Earl to teach him how to kill. Reluctantly, Earl agrees. The movie is worth watching for what eventually happens to this guy.

Brook's daughter comes home from college, pregnant, and a week later police are knocking on his door, wanting to question her about a murder. He knows his daughter did it, that his 'addiction' has been passed on to her, but doesn't know what to do. Does he let her go to jail or does he help her cover up the killing?

There's also this unnecessary subplot involving Demi Moore as the police detective who is on the murder case. As the two don't really interact and seem to be separate stories, it would've worked fine if she was eliminated altogether. But it's a Hollywood movie?

MR. BROOKS, although a good serial killer movie, would have been far better if the very last scene was eliminated. It's trite and takes away the 'Holy crap' ending it should have had, if ended with the previous scene.
