Unoriginal and unexciting.

The good cast is the only thing that will carry though from credits to credits. Otherwise, this is an unoriginal story with a predictable ending. Wish I had watched it for free on HBO. At least I didn't watch Hobbits...

Big Disappointment

This movie could have been written by middle schoolers.....high-school kids could have done better, for sure. There was no advocacy for EITHER side of fracking, no facts or information provided, absolutely NOTHING compelling about any of it. Worst movie I have seen in a long time...first one I wanted to walk out on before it ended. Save your money AND your time.

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.
