Promised Land - Review

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.

This movie was no Silkwood, Good Will Hunting or Gasland; it was a safe way to get the message about fracking out to the public.

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.
