Enjoyed Watching this Film,
This review is from: Promised Land (Blu-ray)
Nicely paced storyline with a neat twist towards the end.
The main theme of the film revolves around Damon's character increasingly struggling to reconcile his actions as an employee of a large US corporation with his experience of growing up in a small farming town. His innate understanding of the consequences of his - and the corporation's - actions, on people that he can so readily relate to, increasingly trouble his conscience.
The portrayal of the Environmental Campaigner by John Krasinski (who co-wrote the script with Damon) was unsubtle at times, with many of his scenes clearly building towards an obvious 'too good to be true' conclusion. however, this was redeemed by a nice twist in the conclusion of the film.
The film will no doubt be too slow for many, as it doesn't contain an action scene every 10 mins, but it was a rewarding foray into a tricky and very topical subject.
