I read in a magazine review, where about the film spoke well and I desperately wanted to see it. I did not like — this is a rough start To... you just bring down the story of Michael and you do not knowing, trying to make out something...

I liked that the only business life of Michael, but and everyday, where he found a son what not matter how much he loves him — more time with the son he conduct not physically can. I don't know what emotions should call the film — I was filled with nothing...

As for acting work. Well that can say when the main role in the film is played by George Clooney? His beautiful big eyes and as always, light stubble — doing their job. But seriously — very good at rol Clayton. Clearly shows that for SUCH with its the hero almost lost all emotions. And hearing: "He again brought down the person..." does not show anything.

Job even that of course, and clear that he lenient Arthur — he realizes. Understands what it can deal with all of what you've done-paying customers when he ate-ate the ends with the ends of the drive.

The directing work is also impeccable. But here is their atmosphere of the film. His spirit. So when you see that imbued with history and her lived. Then this is not...

Somehow completely by accident I stumbled on this movie. The decisive factor to the view was the huge number of nominations for the Oscar, though just one they brought a real statue. Well, let everyone order.

Plot. I would describe it in the best banal and again to the extent not worn out. Thank God that we not take lots of photos of the movies of this genre, as for example fighters or romantic comedies. I think of if to make a movie of this genre that and the plot must be appropriate to tighten, to create intrigue, alas. nothing I saw.

Cast. Of course the presence of George Clooney for me this film became a decoration. Not what would I like his work, I just like it is individually suited to each of his roles.

Script. Perhaps it is only I really like the film. Looks and sounds very nice harmonious and most importantly, in a measure confusing and the same time simple for perception.

In the end I want to say that to me this film seemed somehow ice, hence the name of this review. The film is not caused some special positive emotions, not openly negative, but if to choose between the two of them that I choose — negative.

I not a fan of drama, but it's nomination of the film at the Oscar made me watch it. Honestly the frustration I have not experienced. The film is very worthy, and very pleased that he can make you think. Maybe not about life, but at least about some of her aspect. The plot, of course, not new, but something that movie is that I don't in other dramas. There is much more meaning. You just have to think about it.

From Tony Gilroy wanted to expect too much (after all, three part Bourne, and Armageddon it is not garbage any), and he met expectations. In such films the Director's work is more important than anywhere. I am glad that this is the work on top.

Actor for main role picked up as well. George Clooney is a very versatile actor. He can play in the drama and in Comedy. Impresses with its professionalism.

Very pleased That Wilkinson. It perfect for the role of brilliant lawyer with mental shifts. On my opinion it certainly deserves the Oscar, even for the role of the second plan. It still need to play, that she was almost not visible the role of Michael Clayton.

To summarize, we can say that the film was a success. There is drama and better, but they have become classics. And this year is the best film in the drama genre. Good luck on him the Oscar!
