Promised Landing To DVD

Matt Damon, as always, did a great job in this movie, he never seems to disappoint with his acting, no matter what role is thrown at him, and the story itself is a good story about a company coming into a farm town to try and secure rights for drilling for natural gas, the money folk could make off of it, but also the damage it could do to the land, but its not an over the top story, and thats what holds this movie back. There is nothing throughout this movie that jumps out at you and says "WOW", nothing that shows there was much put into it as far as action, which its not an action movie, nor nothing showing it was an expensive movie to make either. I could have easily seen this on tv for a made for tv movie, and dont feel its worth really seeing at the show for what tickets and popcorn and things cost these days. I myself wold give this 2 1/2 stars out of 4 myself, but would wait for the DVD to come out to see this one ... Enjoy :)

This movie is soooo boring and preachy - obviously the movie makers had an agenda and didn't really care about much else - Damon is so BAD and the rest of the cast is sleep walking- probably Damon's worst film ever - although he has had several really bad ones lately - typically small town vs the big, bad evil company which Hollywood does 15 times a year, although usually much better than this one - put me to sleep

Promised Land - a Flop

Written January 06, 2013
Very boring, can't find anything really good to say about the movie and to me it is quite misleading as to what the plot is suppose to represent... save you're money..

I honestly could not find a solid 10 mins or more in this movie to be "fufilling" or even somewhat entertaining. All jokes were predictable and the funniest stuff was the pickup line in the bar (which you can see for free in the trailer). Don't bother. If you like Matt, then wait for DVD or Netflix streaming. Full price is a rip off for this one.

A complex morality tale

The Promised Land could have been an environmentalist vs corporations film, but Matt Damon made one for thinkers. Damon's character is "a good man" who tries to do good. He also portrays a character who does not come to easy answers about a complex issue. I highly recommend this film.
