Brilliantly different...By PaulaWestwood (397 reviews) from Ashton-Under-Lyne , 27 Oct 2007
[Highly rated reviewer]This could have been so 'samey', but was so sparklingly different instead, I really expected a normal 'good' Costner film, but this had real interest intreague and differences. Costner plays Mr Brooks, a wealthy highly respected businessman, with a dark side. William Hurt as Marshall, is brilliantly cast and written as Mr Brooks dark side incarnate, the black side others cant see but is a completely real companion to Mr Brooks, the devil inside him urging him to embrace the side of him that enjoys murder, despite his resistance. But that is not all there is to this one, there is a good deal more, and all of it fascinatingly entertaining and watchable. One very small gripe (very small) the ending is a bit frayed and not quite satisfying enough... that said, I would very highly recommend this film, its certainly well above a regular movie, really good stuff.

Dexter with bells onBy mj55 (171 reviews) , 19 Nov 2011A clever, well scripted movie that engages throughout. There is a certain pleasure to seeing a plan come together as it does here. A few wildcards get thrown in which means you are never too sure where it's heading and how it will end. Enjoyable, even if the 'hero' is a serial killer.
Excellent ThrillerBy CaptainDeadbeat (47 reviews) from Tunbridge Wells , 10 Nov 2011I wasn't really expecting much from this when I added it to my list, but was very pleasantly surprised. Very taut thriller with some great ideas executed well by cast and crew. Everything I want from a good thriller, basically. Kept me gripped throughout. Highly recommended.
Good thrillerBy a customer , 03 Nov 2011Well worth watching, with a twist or two Long the way. Not the normal Kevin Costner run of the mill film.
Where is this going...whoah!!!By Barcabloke (9 reviews) , 28 Oct 2011Gripping stuff. Quite sinister really.
Yes it's a bonkers plot but it's entertaining, and a surprising ending....or is it....
But when did William Hurt put on all that weight???
Mr BrookesBy a customer , 19 Oct 2011Really enjoyed this film, but then I always enjoy watching Kevin Costner. Kept me entertained all the way through even if it was a little predictable.
