Reviews

Blu-Ray - Region A and B Just to let you know, we have imported this product from Sweden - do not worry though, it plays in English, just like the UK version, but just contains optional Swedish subtitles! Erin Brockovich was never trained, or indeed meant to work in a lawyers office. Circumstances take this down-on-her-luck, twice-divorced mother of three into a legal practice. Here she discovers some legal files that don't add up... On investigation she discovers an injustice, and decides, against the odds, to take on the bad guys on behalf of a poor and very ill community.

4.0 out of 5 stars ERIN BROCKOVICH IS SASSY AND BRASSY... 1 Dec 2002
By Lawyeraau HALL OF FAME TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:VHS Tape
This is a very entertaining, well directed movie with an excellent performance by Albert Finney and a notable one by Julia Roberts, who plays the title role of Erin Brockovich. The rest of the cast, likewise, give excellent performances.
The story is a compelling one. A down and out single mother of three young children, Erin Brockovich, gets into an auto accident. Her personal injury suit goes down the tubes, when she alienates the jury with her checkered past and salty language. Angry and desperate, she bullies her lawyer, Ed Masry, disarmingly played by Albert Finney, into hiring her, after he loses her personal injury case. He does so, to the consternation of his other employees. You see, Erin marches to the beat of a different drummer. She dresses like a tramp and talks like a longshoreman.
Which only goes to show you that one should never judge a book by its cover. Beneath the vulgar exterior, lies a steel trap mind, which Erin put to good use when she goes through a pro bono real estate case, only to discover that there is more to the real estate transaction than meets the eye, a whole lot more. Intrigued by the fact that extensive medical records are included in the real estate transaction paperwork and wondering why that should be, Erin lets her natural curiosity and interest in people prevail. She goes about and investigates the matter.
What she ultimately discovers is that toxic waste is very clearly affecting the quality of life of the inhabitants of the town of Hinckley, California. It appears that the utilities giant Pacific Gas and Electric has been letting highly toxic chromium seep into the ground, affecting the water which the inhabitants of the town use.

4.0 out of 5 stars A dramatic and star reviving picture 17 Jan 2010
By Stampy
Format:DVD
After losing a court trial Erin Brockovich (Roberts) forcefully secures a post at a law firm in the hope of raising money for her child and doing something substantial in her life.

When the credits rolled and text appeared declared what happened next I had up to this point forgotten this in fact is a true story, which when looking back is a remarkable story.

Opening with the Pretty Woman actress conversing with a stereotypical boss type at an interview her presence is felt strongly and we know we are in for a strong drama.

As if to compact the genre into full flow we have a shocking car crash which ultimately leads to an unhappy Erin and the introduction of the law firm is set in motion with a staggering no holds barred meeting.

The plot continues to move forward with its main star, coasting through some powerful real life motions such as being a single parent, struggling with finance and having difficulty getting work. The realism it portrays is strong and can be associated with any viewer and the fact that this is based on a woman's personal experience may have people shedding a tear or two, which is helped along by a bravado Julia Roberts.

The actress at present in 2000 was in a run of a conventional romantic roles. My best friend's wedding, Notting Hill and Runaway bride had all appeared on the star's CV in recent years and here she branches out into a harder dramatic role that enables us viewers to truly see her full potential, which in turn was noticed by Hollywood who won her an Academy Award for her portrayal. I confess to never being high on her fan list but here we do see charisma and a no holds barred approach to truth telling and appetite for enthusiasm.

5.0 out of 5 stars A satisfying film 30 Nov 2004
Format:DVD
Erin Brockovich is a tale of a woman struggling with circumstances difficult enough to make the viewer wonder how she might get out of them, and it is good to see how she manages (with the help of othet people) to deal with the obstacles and enable truth and justice to prevail as well. The fact that this is a true story about a real human, not a saint, makes it all the more satisfying. The DVD contains an interesting short featurette with the real Erin Brockovich and the lawyer she worked with.
Highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Julia shines as Erin 17 Mar 2004
Format:DVD
This is an amazing story about an amazing woman.
Julia Roberts really proves she's one of the best actresses around in this film, displaying real, pure talent - Albert Finney also puts in a memorable performance and together they totally bust PG&E!
To be honest, i wouldn't usually pick this kind of a film ... true stories tend to be over the top and sentimental ... but Erin Brockovich is gritty, realistic drama. In short, it's fantastic!

5.0 out of 5 stars Erin Brocovich is as good as it gets! 3 Sep 2000
By A Customer
Format:DVD
A movie which features a feisty single mother who takes on the big guns and exposes corruption, lies and deceit may seem like typical Channel 5 movie of the week fodder. The title alone and the "based on a true story" link may add weight to your expectations. But, prepare to be blown away, surprised and entertained in a way that will leave you talking about the film for days....
Julia Roberts plays the title role. Erin is a single mother who is down on her luck. Faced with the prospect that she is unemployable and viewed purely as a stereotype as opposed to a person, she talks her way into a job in a small legal firm, following a car accident. Her new boss Ed (Albert Finney) is impressed by Erin's determination and enthusiasm to better herself although her other colleagues take her at face value and see her clothes and persona as threatening and lowering the tone of the office. Ever determined and stubborn, Erin lifts her job as an Office Clerk to great new heights- as she stumbles across chilling evidence about water contamination and sets out to fight for the community and for herself. As more horrifying details are unearthed Erin finds the balance between home and work become blurred and she pours all of her energies into fighting for a community while her estranged boyfriend George (Aaron Eckhart) holds the fort at home. This sparkling gem of a movie is everything that the similarly themed 'A Civil Action' is not. The cast is universally excellent with Roberts delivering the performance of her career. Instead of turning Erin into 'Nancy Drew' which she could have so easily done, Julie Roberts gives her the gift of realism in a fully rounded performance which manages to break your heart, make you laugh and cheer at Erin's sheer defiance of authority figures.
