What the Critics say
Mariana Malan Dit is 'n slim riller, maar die wendings is nie dramaties end die afloop nie bevredigend nie.
Kevin Crust Costner effective in an otherwise spotty movie.

Sabrina Dean The end result is a rather engaging film with some interesting twists and very worthwhile content.
Barry Ronge It's a classic police thriller, more concerned with plot than with car chases and blood.
Evert Lombaert Verdict? Definitely worth a watch.
Shlomo Schwartzberg There’s really nothing worthwhile about Mr. Brooks, which, to add insult to injury, drags on for a whole two painful hours. This is bottom-of-the-barrel filmmaking that never should have gone beyond the planning stages.
Adam Nayman Aside from the question of the star rating we gave it, Mr. Brooks is very much worth seeing – albeit as the most conspicuously ridiculous mainstream American movie since Dreamcatcher.
James Berardinelli Mr. Brooks is a curious mix of the campy and the intelligent, of high concept and low psychology. In spite of these contradictions, or perhaps because of them, it works.
Peter Travers When this mind-bender of a thriller sticks to the war going on between Earl and his conscience, Mr. Brooks spins a web that will wrap you up in nightmares.
The film might look good and feature a decent name cast, but it just isn't that thrilling.
Tomatometer Overstuffed with subplots, becoming more preposterous as it goes along.
