So many characters with so much trite, stupid backstory. So many serial killers. So many twists. So many dropped storylines. Such a weak-ass ending. Meet Mr. Brooks.
Mr. Brooks stars Kevin Costner as a wealthy Portland businessman, family man and philanthropist. Also he’s a serial killer. So there’s that. The movie casts a scenery-hungry William Hurt as his personified, murderous inner voice, so there’s that, too. Demi Moore plays the hard-boiled detective with an eerie insight into Mr. Brooks’ modus operandi, and Dane Cook plays a mechanical engineer who decides he also wants to be a serial killer. That’s right: Kevin Costner, Demi Moore, and Dane Cook. You would be forgiven for thinking this movie was made in the 90s. You would also be wrong. 2007, my friends!
