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.

Nothing New Or Special....A Basic Advocacy Plot.

The talent had little to work with in terms of a screenplay here. Too bad because this film features several notables whose skills were greatly underutilized. This film is pretty much a plain, at times bland, story with a couple of fairly large plot holes. It's not really worth the price of today's evening tickets but a matinee might be a fair exchange. You might want to wait for the DVD, stream or cable. You'll probably be glad you did.

Promised Land worth waiting for!

It's a "cute" treatment of a serious issue, but a superficial treatment. Pretty slow moving for the theater, but could be okay to watch at home. Wait to see it on Netflix or OnDemand and save a few $.

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.
