Rating: Active Eruption
This is a great legal thriller with superb performances by top-notch actors (Clooney, Wilkinson, Swinton). I'm pleased it's back in theaters again after receiving so many Oscar nods. From beginning to end, you'll be on the edge of your seat, cheering on George Clooney to expose the bad guys before they get to him. This is the world of high-stakes law firms trying to defend corporate criminal acts, with themes similar to "Erin Brockovich", but with the added danger of the powerful corporation trying to snuff out the whistleblower. If you like legal thrillers, you've just got to see it. This film deserves all its award nominations and more.
