I have always put Kevin Costner in the same category as Nicolas Cage.....the movie will either be great or an absolute shocker. I'm happy to report this movie was gripping right to the last. Kevins... Read moreperformance as a serial killer / philanthropist was excellent. Very entertaining movie and a must see for all thriller / crime story junkies.
The Man Who Has Everything Has Everything To Hide.
Earl Brooks (Kevin Costner) is a loving family man and a local business icon. But Mr Brooks is deeply flawed and very aware of it. He is addicted to killing. Struggling with his pathology, he tries to quit, but his alter-ego, Marshall (William Hurt) has an altogether different idea. Marshall enjoys his “existence” and his “work.”
Tenacious Detective Tracy Atwood (Demi Moore), battling with her own demons, is extremely frustrated at the lack of clues left by the mysterious killer. When Brooks is compelled to perform one last murder, despite his strong reservations, he delivers the goods with trademark ritualistic style. But this time he gets sloppy and is seen by a voyeuristic neighbour. Unexpectedly turned-on by what he sees, the prying neighbour, Mr Smith (Dane Cook), has an unusual and disturbing blackmail demand.
With the dogged Detective Atwood on his trail, Mr Brooks and “Marshall” are forced to play out an increasingly elaborate game.
