Liked Mark Ruffalo but don't like going to see documentary type movies. Dreary movie.

I went into this movie expecting something on the order of Erin Brockovich, with Mark Ruffalo replacing Julia Roberts: A heroic investigator with a bit of a personality goes up against a big corporation that is suspected of poisoning good people living in the area.

That expectation can go out the window just a few minutes in. Whereas Roberts got an Oscar for her titular role as the flamboyant community crusader, Mark Ruffalo here diminishes himself into the background, even when he's the center of attention. This isn't a glamor ride for Ruffalo or for Anne Hathaway, who plays his wife. They are playing real people who decide that doing the right thing is important, even if it has ramifications on work and family life.

The core expectation of seeing a David go up against a Goliath is well-satisfied, however. This story's twist is that David is on a legal team that specializes in Philistines and knows how the big guy likes to win his battles.

If you enjoy procedural stories, this one should be enjoyable. Ruffalo's portrayal can be a little off-putting, so you may find yourself having difficulty with that, but that just places more of the emphasis squarely where it belongs, and that's the people who are being affected by the poisoning by a chemical products giant.

The impact of going up against what their colleagues and friends see as a valuable partner creates hardships for both Ruffalo's character and the people he is representing. And that's the real story that's being told here.

One word of warning. You may casting a sideways glance at your non-stick cookware after watching this. I know I still am...
