I don't usually write about movies I see but I was certainly moved by this movie to do so.
My goodness, the writing was ok and even clever at times, but overall it was cliche, predictable and amateurish. The whole movie reminded me of a low-budget, poor-quality Christian movie that comes out every now and again.
It was preachy. I'm a forward thinking, left-leaning liberal, but got so tired of its message.
The characters lacked consistency. They were haphazard, depending on the need of the moment.

This film is meant to be a part of the public conversation on natural gas and the ways to obtain it. Imperfect though it may be, it is part of the palette of views on the subject.

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.

We couldn't get a seat in Life of Pi, so sat for this one. Let's see: Mr Cool drops in Podunck City to rip everyone off, goes for a drink, and the coolest girl in town flirts him, lets this total stranger sleep it off in her house; bad guy turns good guy, lives happily ever-after. What a bunch of BULL.

Not only is the subject matter right in my wheelhouse, Damon et al bring the lies and distortion right into my backyard. Quite literally.
Oh, and did I mention that the film was partly funded by a state-owned media company in the United Arab Emirates?
Let the fact checking begin. Please let it begin!
