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.

Usually pretty good at picking a plot line. This one had me stumped and waiting for teh next twist. Well acted. Great ending had us both interpreting it differently! Best movie i have seen for quite some time.

Chilling, and not a little scary - to see how seemingly ordinary blokes are led so easily into participating in death and destruction. Mr Brookes created for himself a truly frightening 'sword of Damocles'... Read more

It think this is the only good movie that I have seen Kevin Costner in. It was an interesting storyline and kept me interested from beginning to end.

Innovative plot. One of Costner's better performances of late. A bit of a twist at the end, but I'll say no more...
