Mr. Brooks ★★★★½

An excellent psychological thriller with Kevin Costner cast against type as the titular psychopath. The plot is intricate and expertly thought through, the characters fully fleshed out and the acting exemplary. Costner has never been better, William Hurt is great as the nagging voice inside Costner’s head made flesh (at least to him) and Demi Moore makes for a strong antagonist. The only missteps are a couple of OTT action scenes that serve as a reminder that Bruce A. Evans previously helmed the dire Kuffs.
