Matt Damon

Movie Review: Elysium

Aug 15, 2013

Elysium makes a few gestures in the direction of serious interests and even current events.

Promised Land, startting Matt Damon as the agent of the energy company and John Krasinski as the environmentalist, is a fairly good introduction to the "fracking" process of getting natural gas out of the ground, but it falls a bit into the stereotypes of entertainment movies, and seriously dilutes its message about the pros and cons of the fracking process.
