Michael ClaytonMichael Clayton, Michael Clayton works for a company’s top lawyer and he does his dirty work, is called up late one night to help with a new case, but when he goes back home to his car blows up, fortunately not in the car in time. We moved to four days before this.

At the company where he works Michael are trying to make settlement in a case that has been going on for some years, but one of the partners of the company has gone a little crazy and is taking the other side. Michael is called in to try to talk to Arthur and regain a sense of seeing before it ruins the whole case and bring the company down. Michael has his work cut out trying to get through Arthur, and soon found incriminating evidence that Arthur is right n what he says. The company and the company lawyer must now take steps to keep Michael Arthur and quiet but at what cost?

The only thing that attracted me to this film was George Clooney, had no other reason for wanting to see, but I have to say I was very surprised by the movie and enjoyed it thoroughly. The story was good and the way it was back in time was very easy to follow. I like how we have seen the darker side of the business of law and thought it was put through a very credible way.

George Clooney took the lead role of Michael and he was excellent. I loved his character and found it very easy to get to know and understand it. He presented himself as a hard man but the addition of his son was good, showing a softer side to the character as well. It fits the role and delivered his lines with a great air of authority and made me believe what I was saying. ” He also worked with the young Austin Williams who played his son Henry, who had a good screen on bail. Arthur’s role was played by Tom Wilkinson and he too was great. I loved the way we got a good strong English actor in the role and thought it was the role to perfection. He did not come across as fully to the right mental and the game is not so it was very believable.

We had a lot of good supporting actors in the film and some included, Michael O’Keefe, Sydney Pollack, Tilda Swinton and Denis O’Hare, the characters were all very different and bought what the depth and diversity to the film.

There was not much action in the film but not really needed. The story was strong enough and I think that when added with the exception of the explosion of a car that would have made the story a bit far-fetched. It was created in the United States and was clearly
