We found this movie a most enlightening. We are originally from WV, and upon returning to visit we have been shocked at what we have seen and the massive destruction which "fracking" is doing to the land and to the state. Between the gas companies and coal mining they have destroyed much of the state and water supply. The movie is about as true as it can get. A great example of what money can do . The actors were super in portraying the scenario of corporate conglomerates and their tactics of gobbling up the less fortunate, uneducated people to destroy the environment. Very good movie. A must see for anyone that loves this earth.

We enjoyed this film very much. Matt Damon does his usual good job of acting in a convincing fashion, and the other actors are very good also. The story is fairly compelling and does have a "message", but it doesn't beat you over the head. The scenery is lovely, and if you grew up on a farm it can be nostalgic. If you're a city mouse, get to know the rest of the country. Worth your money, but probably just as good on a DVD.

Went to see on Sat 1/5. The theater was sold out! This is because this was filmed in our back yard. The flick was interesting and the plot was a real 'figure it out' type flow. The ending was a pretty cool surprise. It was intersting seeing all the local places that my wife and I go to. I.e. we ate in the coffee shop that was used in the film this morning. Overall a film that is definately worth seeing (once).

It's a very one-sided, uber-liberal anti-fracking movie

An inconvenient movie... it's brainwashing 101. Radical liberals will love it, educated citizens will see it for what it is. It's bad enough that they indoctrinate your children in public schools but when it comes to having a choice, don't spend your money on propaganda comrade.

Credible and with beautiful scenery Final plot twist a little too sinister Nice background romance
