Promised Land

High-Def Digest
26 April 2013
  • Conclusion: Matt Damon and Gus Van Sant reunite for this cautionary drama that's more about one corporate salesman's personal journey than any related politics concerning environmental issues with hydraulic fracturing. Though showing a few minor hiccups in the narrative, the film is well-made and well-intentioned, and it ultimately proves to be entertaining and satisfying.

Promised Land Blu-ray Review

  • Excerpt: The Film Matt Damon can't help but be a good guy. After all, he's Will Hunting, Jason Bourne and Jimmy Kimmel's punching bag all rolled into one pretty darn good actor. That said, Promised Land doesn't have him playing nice at all -- at first. However, he's willing to be he bad guy briefly, if it means reteaming with Good Will Hunting director Gus Van Sant.

Promised Land Blu-ray Review

18 April 2013
  • Conclusion: Earnest and sincere for a stretch, manipulative and implausible in the end, Promised Land is a message movie that nearly forgets its message. Rather than present an honest story honestly, Van Sant, Damon and Krasinski drill too deep and poison the waters, adding in a twist that almost ruins the entire experience.

Promised Land

AV Club
27 December 2012
  • Excerpt: Using film to advocate for one side of an issue or another is a tricky business: “If you want to send a message, try Western Union,” goes the famous Frank Capra quote. Documentaries risk being brushed off as mere propaganda—Capra produced some of that himself with the Why We Fight films—but if anything, fiction features have it tougher, because at least documentaries can make their case plainly and directly.

  • Summary: Promised Land överraskade mig, jag förväntade mig att se en ganska medioker film med bra personer i huvudrollerna. Jag hade fel.
  • Pros: Underbart foto, utmärkta skådespelarinsatser och utomordentlig dialog.
  • Cons: Det känns som att någonting fattas från filmen, den når inte riktigt hela vägen fram.
