We gave it a C+

So crackling, mature, and accomplished it just about restores your faith. It’s an exposé of what corporations and law firms do, yet you might not even guess you’re watching a thriller — which is why it earns every pulse pound. George Clooney reminds you what it looks like when a great movie star lays his heart and soul on the table.
