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 was one of the best movies I have seen in a long time. Both Matt Damon and John Krasinski were excellent. Frances McDormond was also extremely good. This was a very topical movie in that fracking is going on all over the US. I also thought that Hal Holbrook was perfectly cast. If you haven't seen it, I would advise you to go.

This Movie had such a positive impact on Americans and there Farms to show them how they can save there land from dying off and how they can get there crops back to produce better income for there family's and Friends mainly through the idea of using natural gas to some how nurture there farms to keep things alive. Overall it was a rewarding Movie i wasn't to thrilled about the cursing but hands down it was great movie and a must see!

Too Political.

I've had enough irrational political BS in recent months. I don't need a fact-less political movie bashing big business. Just where do folks think jobs are going to come from without big business or bug business handcuffed into inaction. we'll all be growing our own organic crops in our back yards if this keeps up. How about movies getting back to entertainment, politicians getting back to representing their electorate, and big business getting back to big business. What a novel idea.
