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.

An extremely important issue

I have a house in upstate NY in a small town just like the one portrayed in Promised Land. I thought the portrayal of the people and the politics was right on. I am a low key activist in the anti-fracking movement, and while this movie has its flaws, it does describe what's happening in the regions of the country that have Marcellus and Utica shale. The big gas companies are trying to take advantage of the poverty in these areas, and dangle the prospect of huge prospects in front of the noses of the people who are struggling the hardest. The reality is that some do get very rich, but the companies do not explain that your property - and perhaps your neighbors' as well, becomes toxified. The water supplies become polluted, and stream down into reservoirs that supply New York City and other regions. There is much more to know - seeing this movie will get your feet wet.

Enjoyed this movie

I enjoyed this movie especially the twist towards the end. I liked that it was filmed in a small, real town and the countryside was beautiful. I thought the acting was very good, however I would have liked to have seen a different ending. Sort of anti-climactic. I felt all the foul language was completely unnecessary, especially from Matt Damon's character.
