Attorney Michael Clayton is a “fixer,” the go-to guy when his powerful New York law firm wants a mess swept under the rug. But now he’s handed a crisis even he may not be able to fix. The firm’s top litigator in a $3-billion case has gone from advocate to whistleblower. And the more Michael tries to undo the damage, the more he’s up against forces that put corporate survival over human life – including Michael’s. George Clooney portrays Michael, backed into a care… More >>

  1. These two people who rated this movie 5 star must be speaking of a different movie than the one I viewed with two friends. It was the most boring movie I have ever seen. I kept waiting for something exciting to happen which never did. I still haven’t figured out exactily what a “janitor” is. As for Clooney’s acting I never observed anything that would make it special. If you see this movie I think most of you will agree with me and my friends.

  2. I’ve seen many, many movies…good ones and not so good ones. For me to take the time just to write a review for this movie means that it is either incredibly great or awful. Unfortunately the answer is the later. My wife and I saw this film during a vacation. My wife wanted to see this movie. After sitting there for about an hour, she was begging for us to leave. We didn’t. I was hoping the movie would pick up the pace and get to a point. Well, it didn’t.

    Oh I’m sure some of you wackos will get something out of this movie, but for the rest of us…the ordinary, average American who goes to the movies for entertainment and a chance to get away from our ordinary lives this movie is horrible.

    Feel free to take your chances with it if you want to waste some money.

  3. The single star is not a review of the movie, but to agree with other reviews that object to Combo releases. I question there is a real market for Combo releases and see this as a means to charge higher prices for the most popular movies. I refuse to buy any Combo releases for the higher $$$ and urge other buyers to do as well. We need to send a message or we will see everything released in Combo adding up to 40% to the price!!! The arguments made for Combos are that (1) you can also play it on standard DVD players and (2) it “future” protects us in case the HD DVD format becomes obsolete. For (1), there may be some interest in this but for me I didn’t buy an HD DVD player to watch movies on a standard DVD player. For (2) frankly, I’ll take my chances because if HD DVD becomes obsolete, existing players will last for quite a while and combo players will be available. Also, I can afford to buy into Blu-Ray or any other new technology with the money I saved not buying Combos (I wouldn’t take a step backward to DVD). If the studios think there is a market for Combos, fine! -> Just release a HD DVD only version also at the same time. See how many they sell of each. Frankly, I only moved up to HD DVD when I saw Amazon pricing them comparable to DVD. If you don’t think there is a strategy on the part of the studios using Combos to generate more revenue just look at the upcoming releases of White Noise (HD DVD only) and White Noise 2 (Combo). What sense does that make other than to create interest with the first movie and then sock it to you on the second! Look at other series (Bourne, Harry Potter, Oceans 11-13, etc.) same pattern. If they truly want the launch of HD DVD to be successful (as I do!), Combos pricing is very counterproductive. Annoyed and frustrated.

  4. I found this movie very boring and pretentious. On one extreme are grossout teenage movies and on the other extreme are the “intellectual” movies like this. I rather stay away from both extremes. Storyline was very hard to follow… there were too many side characters… too many distracting/confusing scenes. I still cannot figure out why would a person go out of his way to trespass someone’s property to be near 3 ordinary horses? May be this movie was made for movie critices (who must gush over such highbrow movies) and not for general audience.

  5. I have a fast forward (on the tivo) and (thankfully) I know how to use it. My son fell asleep watching it. I almost didn’t let him watch it due to the one scene discussiong sexual matters that could have been substituted with something else and kept the movie a PG-13. You’ve got to wonder if R is a desired rating any more.

    Like all unbox movies, it can’t get 5 stars due to the 1980 stereo sound track! Let’s get dolby digital!

    The movie would have gotten 2, maybe even 3 stars sans Clooney. If amazon’s catalog was correct I wouldn’t have rented it. This is staring, and produced by George Clooney, yet he was not mentioned on amazon’s website. Until Clooney shows respect for his senior, Charlton Heston (look Clooney up in wikipedia’s article on Heston) I will continue to boycot his work. Right now, Clooney is not “politically correct” in my household.
