Mr. Brooks (2007) - Thriller
I guess it never released in our
part of the world otherwise I am sure, I wouldn’t have missed it with a cast
like that with Kevin Costner playing the “Man of the year” serial killer
pursued by evergreen Demi Moore. William Hurt plays a ghost who is always with
him – it’s fantastic to see them discuss everything, Hurt advising Kevin every
now and then is totally fantastic – movies high point is their discussions with
fantastic thrilling cat and mouse game between killer and cops. Every one has
their own background and story too to tell. Demi Moore (Daughter of a
millionaire) working as a detective and has a personal score to settle with her
husband fighting a divorce case while Mr Kevin is on a killing spree with a new
intern. His own daughter he suspects has murdered someone too. It has so much
going on all the time that you are totally hooked to it. Fortunately I got a
Blue Ray print and I wish I could freeze some stunning shots and show them to
you – its one of those movies that should not be missed by thriller lovers. Why
is Mr. Man of the year on a killing spree? The way he does all the murders is
simply outstanding. Would he ever get caught? What happens to the daughter and
his intern? Who’s William Hurt? You’ve got to watch it to know all the answers.
Trust me guys – its one hell of a watch – do not miss it.
Isn't She Stunning?
What I liked about the movie is
its fantastic handling and building suspense, where you actually want to know –
why are those crimes being committed and by the time you know the reason it’s
too late. You actually try to predict how it all is going to end but guess what
– I can guarantee you that your prediction is never going to come true. Mine
did not; rather I was shocked with the ending. What’s commendable about its
cast is the way they carry it on their shoulders. Kevin Costner is simply
superb and he looked even better in a blue ray print. Demi Moore I guess is
getting better with age – the last movie I saw of her too was an action movie
and this one beats that one hands down. She is simply stunning and even better
in a detective’s character – suits her well. You will love her action shots for
sure. I have always been a fan of William Hurt’s style of subtle acting – here
too he is exceptional and the kind of chemistry he shares with Kevin is awesome.
I kept imagining he should be Kevin’s dad in the movie – coming back as a ghost
to help him carry out those murders. It’s almost two hours long but has the
quality that makes you keep wanting for more. Even when it ended I waited
through the end credits thinking something may come up by time the last name
