This is a sweet and sensitive film about a very important topic. Great cast and a very special performance by Hal Holbrook. So nice to an intelligent, beautiful film that doesn't need violence or special effects to keep your attention!

Funded by the Government of Abu Dhabi

All you need to know is that Abu Dhabi paid for this propaganda, Damon is a scummy mouthpiece for corporate Arabia. I prefer to see my $ go to hard working Americans trying to support their families but idiot traitor Damon wants to see it get funneled to Al Quaida so they can murder us which I guess he believes we deserve. I didn't see the movie but I think the only roles that come naturally to Damon are the homosexual ones that he seems to gravitate to.

Promised Land

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.

I liked it

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.

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.
