Great Thriller

It seems great thrillers are getting scarce these days, so I simply had to check out Michael Clayton. The film has a certain 'Erin Brokovich' feel to it, with the plot based around an agrochemical corporation that is trying its hardest to fight off a massive civil lawsuit where one of its products has poisoned farmland and destroyed families. In comes Michael Clayton. He is a clean-up man for t... read more

"There's no play here. There's no angle. There's no champagne room. I'm not a miracle worker, I'm a janitor. The math on this is simple. The smaller the mess the easier it is for me to clean up."

Michael Clayton is an appealing, slow at times, but generally satisfying thriller. My words of advise if you plan to see this is not to expect a fast-paced action thriller of any kind, this... read more

"I'm not a miracle worker, I'm a janitor. The math on this is simple. The smaller the mess the easier it is for me to clean up."

Michael Clayton is Mr. Fix-It for his law firm, Kenner, Back and Odeen. A former District Attorney, Clayton uses his contacts in the police and the criminal justice system to bail out the firm's wealthy corporate clients. When one of the firm's senior partners, Arthur Edens, has a nervous breakdown while taking a deposition in a lawsuit against a major agrochemicals company, Clayton is dispatched to bring him home. What Clayton soon learns is Edens not only has doubts about defending the lawsuit but that the company may be acting on its own to ensure a positive outcome.

" Michael Clayton is one of the many films from the 2007-08 period where I don't really remember much about my initial viewings. It was a period in time where I had convinced myself that I was meant to be a basketball player, even though I lacked coordination, athleticism, fitness, etc, and wrapped myself in sports. After about a year or so, in the Summer of 2008, I finally came back to movies, where my heart truly lie. The details as to my first viewing of this film are pretty slim. I'm fairly c"
