Thought it to be a good movie. Good information about fracking. I could not figure why they
would cast Francis McDormand as Sue. She was very blah as this character. I thought Matt Damon lived up to his character.
Nice afternoon. Nothing amazing though.

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.

The cast and filming of this beautiful film create a metaphor for American values of corporate greed and materialism vs American agricultural community life and values. One example of the close farming community that must decide if it wants to sell out for fracking by natural gas corporate development is the scene where a young girl is selling lemonaide. She insists on giving Matt Damon his change back from his purchase instead of just pocketing the profit. American farming communities ae vulnerable to corporate greed. There are no shootings , explodings, or violent fight scenes in this movie, so if that is what someone calls entertainment, you won't like this movie. If you appreciate human relationships and looking at values and motivations,with great character development,you will love this film!

An inconvenient movie... it's brainwashing 101.
Radical liberals will love it, educated citizens will see it for what it is.
It's bad enough that they indoctrinate your children in public schools but when it comes to having a choice, don't spend your money on propaganda comrade.

It's a "cute" treatment of a serious issue, but a superficial treatment. Pretty slow moving for the theater, but could be okay to watch at home. Wait to see it on Netflix or OnDemand and save a few $.
