i thought it was quite boring and was disappointed in Matt Damon's performance. Used to seeing him in rather exciting movies, like the Bourne Series, where the plot and action carry you along.
In this movie he seemed to be sort of short and overweight, with a paunch, and certainly not handsome. Also did not project any real personality.
The movie really just confirms America's opinion of Big Business as totally corrupt and immoral. They would do anything to make more millions.
Very lack luster movie.

On a 1 to 10 scale I rate this movie a 6. Good plot. Would be alright to wait for video on this one.

I liked this movie becasue it is a gentle movie- no violence, no gore, no sex so okay for kids but there is some minimal launguage if I remember correctly. Acting is great. Story is okay. I thought it was interesting. Not a movie that you will walk out of thinking "this has changed my life." But for entertainment it was interesting, intelligent and easy on the eyes. Not a hard core anti-fracking movie either - just enough to make you think.

This movie was no Silkwood, Good Will Hunting or Gasland, it was safe
way to get the message about fracking out to the public. I have to
agree with the other reviewer on this film. Matt Damon seems to have
lost his passion for acting in this movie or maybe he was playing safe
so not to lose funding for future movies he wants to make. It is just
hard to believe that Matt Damon's character all of sudden grows a
conscience after being promoted to a VP position. Or how someone who
excels as one of the top lease signers for his company could sound like
such a bumbling newbie when talking to the public regarding his
companies intentions. There is a surprising twist but I understand how
companies i.e. chemical, utility or mining companies will do anything
to get their way. This movie could have delivered a harder impact on
such an important subject. I look forward to reading your reviews and
happy movie watching.
