Mr. Brooks (2007) ***
Director: Bruce A. Evans (who also co-wrote)
Starring: Kevin Costner, William Hurt
Entertaining psychological thriller offering an interesting fictional perspective into the mind of a serial killer. The top notch performances by Costner and Hurt are nearly overshadowed by comedian Dane Cook's lousy acting -- it's forced, unbelievable and really shows his inexperience. I just kept hoping his character would be killed quickly and put us out of our misery. But if you can tolerate Cook's performance, the rest of the movie is worth watching.
