Mr. Brooks is a successful businessman, a generous philanthropist, a loving father and a devoted husband. Seemingly, he is perfect. However, Mr. Brooks has secret – he is an insatiable serial killer, so lethally clever that no one has ever suspected him – until now.

“Mr. Brooks”is a thriller that really showcase Kevin Costner’s acting talent. It is smart and well thought out. Most of this film is a “how to…” to be a successful serial killer. “Mr. Brooks” does a great job of doing what it sets out to do.

Kevin Costner really flexes his acting muscle. His Mr. Brooks is the man on the street that sets off your spider sense and you do not know why. His portray is just that brilliant. It shows that Costner still has the chops. So much of what makes this film successful is the nuisances of his performance.

“Mr. Brooks” is an film that makes very few mistakes in the plot. Every move the character makes is thought out and is plausible to the success of a serial killer. Even when his moves aren’t apparent to the audience that work to his advantage. As an audience member the intelligent of the script makes you never question the motives of Mr. Brooks at any point.

Another point that makes this film successful is that it is a plausible ho to become a serial killer. Many points are observed that are plausible to the success of serial killing. It always shows the mental stability that makes someone able to kill serially.

I give it 4/5 Gs.
