Total Film - 10/01/2007
4 stars out of 5 -- "[A] zesty, brainy chaser....A thought-provoking exposé that could land Clooney an Oscar..."
Sight and Sound - 10/01/2007
"Clooney can suggest depths of weary self-loathing...and his eventual hard-won redemption accordingly carries more emotional weight....Gilroy draws vivid performances from his cast..."
USA Today - 10/05/2007
4 stars out of 4 -- "A deftly written, tautly suspenseful and intellectually demanding morality tale, it stays a step ahead of the audience and features multidimensional characters played by actors at the top of their games."
New York Times - 10/05/2007
"Dark in color, mood and outraged worldview, MICHAEL CLAYTON is a film that speaks to the way we live now....[The film is] adult, sincere, intelligent, absorbing..."
Entertainment Weekly - 10/12/2007
"[A] terrifically engrossing, tethered-to-the-real-world drama....It's better than good; it's such a crackling and mature and accomplished movie that it just about restores your faith."
Rolling Stone - 10/18/2007
3.5 stars out of 4 -- "[T]he film is a triumph for George Clooney, who is at the top of his dramatic form in the title role..."
Los Angeles Times - 10/05/2007
"[A] smart and suspenseful legal thriller that comes completely alive on-screen."
Film Comment - 01/01/2008
"[A] solid, well-crafted, beautifully written and acted thriller....The execution is splendid and the dramatic payoff is considerable..."
Uncut - 03/01/2008
4 stars out of 5 -- "[With] Tom Wilkinson as a hot-shot lawyer in spectacular meltdown. Tilda Swinton is also memorable as a conniving suit....A very grown-up thriller."
Ultimate DVD - 04/01/2008
4 stars out of 5 -- "Clooney plays against his movie star persona, delivering a subtle performance....Thematically MICHAEL CLAYTON bears some comparison to THE INSIDER and, like that film, any morally satisfying pay-off is tempered by the human cost of corporate greed."
Wall Street Journal - 12/04/2009
"[T]he pieces coalesce into a stirring portrait of a man reclaiming his soul from a scrap heap of discarded principles."
