Movie review: Mr. Brooks

On Thursday night, I went to a little event at the Paramount movie theatre, in Montreal. I won a contest, which was a promotion for "Scene", a reward club. It gave winners some free food and entertainment, the main item being the premiere of a movie that will come out in June. There was two choices, an horror movie, which I don't like, and Mr. Brooks, with Kevin Costner and Demi Moore. I chose the later. We didn't sign an NDA or anything like that, but since it's not even out, I won't give out too many details and no big surprise, this being a thriller.

I was a little nervous about this one, since Costner doesn't the best track-record, but I'm happy to report that it is actually pretty good. There is a good suspense and a few good surprises. The acting is good and the story interesting. A short description would be "an addicted and cautious killer may be having some remorses...". I won't say any more then that, but I'm really happy I chose this movie as my winning prize.

Update: Oh yeah, don't look for the Paramount anymore, it's now called the Cinéma Banque Scotia Montréal. Part of the announcements made during the evening. I suppose I'll get used to it. Eventually. Probably...

i had a feeling Costner would make some kind of a comeback; plus it's interesting how Dane Cook went from stand up comedian to starring in a ton of major movies
