Review: Michael Clayton


This movie picks up as Michael Clayton playing poker in an underground china town place. George Clooney plays the role of Michael Clayton who is “the fixer” in a big New York law firm, he his in the lime light of the company but someone who manages to fix difficult situations for important people. Then he gets caught up with one the firms top lawyers gone AWOL, and things get really hairy when the lead lawyer of 6 year class action lawsuit can’t handle his situation and Michael is supposed to handle this. As time progresses he starts piecing things together. The character the Clooney plays is great, he pulls him off perfectly, you really feel that he doesn’t want to be a hero but he can’t help but put pieces together. The movie overall is good but the story feels a bit weak, and if you like Clooney then you will like this movie.
