This review is from: Michael Clayton (Widescreen Edition) (DVD)
With all the hype about this movie, I was shocked at how disappointing it was. The plot is very far from being original: an evil Monsanto-type company is trying to weasel their way out of liability in a multi-billion lawsuit for knowingly poisioning hundreds of people. (Uh, hello! Ever see "A Civil Action" or "The Constant Gardner" or any of a hundred other movies?)
On top of this, the movie is SLOW. Whoever called this a "fast-paced thriller" must either be smoking crack or just be retarded. MC seriously drags.
The only saving grace is that Clooney is such a good actor. Without that, this movie would be worthless.

"Children of Men" was one of last year's best movies? You don't get out much, do you. When you learn how to tell the difference between good and bad movies, let me know.
