Tagline: There's something about Mr. Brooks.

Plot: A psychological thriller about a man who is sometimes controlled by his murder-and-mayhem-loving alter ego.

My rating: 8/10

Will I watch it again? YES!

I don't know why I've avoided this for all these years.  It's a great fucking serial killer thriller with a balls-out fantastic ending!  The pairing of Kostner and Hurt is brilliant.  They work so well together.  There's a moment when they both giggle at the same time, the first time they come together like you'd imagine it was for them in the old days.  It's wonderful.  Everyone does a fine job.  The ending was bugnuts off the charts awesome!!!  It's hard to talk about this without spoilers but I was most satisfied.  The IMDb trivia states that Costner said this was to be the first film in a trilogy.  After 7 years it's safe to assume that it's not going to happen.  Too bad, as this is one hell of a thriller that's as smooth as Billy Dee Williams.  I'm genuinely looking forward to seeing it again,  listening to the commentary and checking out all of the extras.  Do yourself a favor and check this out.
