Promised Land (2013) 
Promised Land review
2.5/4 stars

"It's just a job." Steve Butler (Damon) is waiting for a management position with Global Crosspower Solutions, an energy company that specializes in obtaining natural gas trapped underground through a process known as fracking. He is teamed with industrious Sue (McDormand). A mysterious guy who creates a negative impact on Global named Dustin (Krasinski). He mysteriously creates anti-fracking campaigns against Global.

One of the few instances where your already watching a movie, and felt that is is indeed a movie based on the impossible sequences occurring all-throughout. Instances where Justin lights a fire inside school premises without any fire alarms/permit/knowledge of the teacher, manipulation of information without knowledge of a colleague (which the director thinks, is the twist that makes Damon's character dumbfounded), farmers believing about the information given to them, and much more. Soundtrack too dull though some direction had nice cinematography. Promised Land tries to convey a message about money, manipulation, hard working regular folks trying to earn a decent buck, yet its overall feel was albeit dull, uninteresting and too Hollywood. An average flick for those who enjoy seeing Damon and McDormand onscreen.
