Clooney for President.

  • Excerpt: The Ides of March plays like a real motive of director and star George Clooney's personal outing of the Obama administration with some snappy dialog on how America can get strong again by removing ourselves from area's that we need not be. But in reality this is a work of fiction or is it. This is a very good character driven piece with fine performances by all involved. Clooney knows how to surround himself with respectable performers who shine and make him shine.

"It matters what you did. It matters what you didn't do."

  • Excerpt: During the Ohio leg of a campaign to determine who will become the Democractic party's next presidential candidate, an adept but somewhat idealistic junior campaign manager loses his innocence - and faces tough choices - when he discovers that the men he works for are as unscrupulous and corruptible as the people in the opposition's camp. Although it was a little light on overall plot, this was a slick and reasonably-entertaining political drama.

A Fine Cast Keeps Things Interesting...

Zeiram, blu-ray.com
20 January 2012
  • Excerpt: George Clooney's "The Ides of March" works best as an extension of its good script. The story however, is an entirely different matter. Part didactic, cynical and sneakily powerful; it’s like the funny guy in the room who has told one too many good jokes. The wardrobe is nice and the laughter in the auditorium is riveting but the rocket never quite gets off the ground. We grow weary of this and want to go home (though we are never bored or unhappy).

  • Conclusion: George Clooney's latest starring/directing combo is another quality drama from an actor and director who knows what he wants to do with his films and knows how to make it entertaining at the same time.
