Skadinavian Edition, PAL/Region 2 Blu-Ray 1080p High Definition Widescreen DTS-HD Master Audio: Subtitles: Danish, Finnish, Norwegian, Swedish. 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 career corner that offers little room to fight free in this suspense- and star-packed thriller written and directed by Tony Gilroy (writer/co-writer of the Bourne movie trilogy). Keep your eyes on Michael Clayton. He has some life-or- death decisions to make. Fast.

5.0 out of 5 stars Slow but rewarding 19 May 2008
Format:DVD
I agree that this is not a fast paced film, in this case I didn't mind that. It is an involving film and is probably based very much on real life, ie a large company that has the money and power to step on individuals. In this case though they don't necessarily get away with it due to some rather unusual events. It is a good intelligent film and I am happy to recommend it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Slow-burning masterpiece of corruption 29 Mar 2008
Format:DVD
This film takes time to build its characters, which must be why it has garnered some less positive reviews. Take the time to get involved - it's worth it. There IS a compelling storyline, and this, combined with first-class performances from Clooney, Swinton & Wilkinson, works to produce one of the best films to come out of America in years.

If you need crash, bang wallop every frame instead of every sixth frame, watch something else; for those with an interest in strong characterization, psychology and just a little social comment, sit back and enjoy.

4.0 out of 5 stars Solid Thriller- Great Performances 5 Nov 2008
By haunted
Format:DVD
The plot outline of "Michael Clayton" is not new. A man who has lost his way finds redemption by doing the right thing in the end.
What sets this apart is the quality of performances and excellent direction. Clooney, Swinton, and Wilkinson are top class.
The director also makes the film more interesting with the relatively slow movement of the plot at the beginning.
There are some great scenes, such as those with Clayton doing his work and forced to bring his son along with him as he has custody for the day.
Swinton well deserved her Oscar for her performance as the lawyer who has gone past the point of return and has no conscience to wrestle with any more.
One complaint would be the ending which is perhaps a bit too swift and tidy.
Overrall though a very good film.

5.0 out of 5 stars Outstanding 12 May 2013
Format:DVD
This is an outstanding piece of cinema. A thriller which packs a punch; completely gripping and really rewarding. It might not be for some but, I loved it. A really well written script, which is acted out perfectly with all characters playing a worthy performance. There is not a moment where you are left watching the the scenery, it had me hooked on every word.

An undeniable triumph for good guy vs bad guy. Or good guy vs the world.

4.0 out of 5 stars Slow burn... 7 April 2008
Format:DVD
I agree with many that this film is, perhaps a bit slow to start off, but then, that's what corruption and the greed it stems from are... insidious. This was seen very clearly in the Karen character...Anything...ANYTHING to hang on to the status she has worked so hard (one gets the feeling) and given up so much (ditto) for! Clooney is alswyas "watchable" and gives an excellent performance here. No, it's true that this is not a fast paced movie like, say, Die Hard or other action movies and perhaps that is what troubles some of the reviewers have with it. But, as they say, "still waters run deep"-here, much deeper than any action flick because, horrible as the all out carnage of the "shoot 'em up" action movie, the cold precision and complete indifference of the professional hit and the impartiality of those who order it is chilling and even...evil. Worth your time if you don't mind there not being any blood and gore.

5.0 out of 5 stars slowburn is spot on 31 May 2008
Format:DVD
I agree with the comments about it being a slow burn but have found it rewards those who stick with it. The acting is superb and all in all is just simply a very classy piece of filmwork. It's one of my favourite films so far and deserves 5 stars.
