Mr. Brooks


Mr. Brooks
A Jekyll & Hyde story set in the USA. A quiet and respected family man has a dark secret — he has an alter-ego who is a serial killer. Although last active more than two years ago, the urge to kill has returned, and must be satisfied. However lack of practice has made him careless, and a photographer snaps him in the act, using the photos to blackmail him for a role in the next killing. Meanwhile, a cop with several issues of her own is still on his trail. Futhermore, his daughter may have inherited the same criminal ways... as the film progresses, all these forces come to a head. Reviews have been mixed.

The Citizen
Sabrina Dean quote iconThe end result is a rather engaging film with some interesting twists and very worthwhile content.
12
Sunday Times
Barry Ronge quote iconIt's a classic police thriller, more concerned with plot than with car chases and blood.

Evert Lombaert quote iconVerdict? Definitely worth a watch.
10
Box Office
Shlomo Schwartzberg quote iconThere’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.

eye Weekly
Adam Nayman quote iconAside 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.
1
ReelViews
James Berardinelli quote iconMr. 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.
15
Rolling Stone
Peter Travers quote iconWhen 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.
15
ScreenIt
quote iconThe film might look good and feature a decent name cast, but it just isn't that thrilling.
