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

A potent legal thriller - far too overlooked!

"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."

Contemporary Hollywood thrillers are distinctly separated into two categories: visceral thrillers (which are dependent on action to generate tension and excitement), and intellectual thrillers (which rely on smart plot twists, dialogue and fascinating char... read more

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.

"First viewing - Feb. 25th It took me a little while to get into the rhythm of Michael Clayton, but once it started clicking along for me I dug it. The ending is especially excellent. I could applaud the cast, but one look at who's in this and it goes without saying they're solid all around. Mostly though I appreciated how the film made me work to figure out how I felt about the characters instead of setting them up as clear heroes and villains. And bonus points are awarded for it being a thrill"

" 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"
