Mr. Brooks would have been 100% better had the script been edited and if the director had been Alfred Hitchcock. As far as the acting is concerned...Kevin Costner as a scizophrenic is unbelievable to me. Demi Moore and Dane Cook should go to acting school....especially Ms. Moore if she is thinking of reviving her career.

Leading A Strange Double Life
Written June 16, 2007
A bit predictable at times. Very entertaining movie. William Hurt was pretty good and made it somewhat funny.

First let me say that the cast was excellent. The movie's set, costumes and special effects including the sound was excellent. The story line was good, however, the writers did not follow thru on the basic principals of the old theme of Jeckle and Hyde. They assumed that the audience would only be interested in the gory and senseless killing of innocent persons. It was a nice effect having a visible demon for Mr Brooks to talk with. The repeated use of the "F" word was unecessary, distracting and demeaning to the entire production. Prehaps the director, producer and screenwriters should all watch a few old movies where the bad guys receive their just reward rather than glorify them as they did in this movie. My opinion is that this was one of the most wasteful two hours that I have spent, not to mention the waste in ticket price.

Excellent acting, good dialogue. A little slow but well thought out plot which held my attention. I really recommend this. Good to see Kevin Costner as a bad guy and William Hurt at his sarcastic best!
