The Conservative Review of “Promised Land”


Matt Damon and John Krasinski are the reasons why anyone went to see the movie, let’s be honest. From the get-go, Promised Land looked like a town hall meeting turned into a movie. It’s a hard sell to audiences, but one that Hollywood couldn’t resist attempting.

As we all know, politics is something people in Hollywood feel strongly about. Director Gus Van Sant is no exception. Promised Land delivers a story with a slant against anyone that would use American land for natural gas, whether there is evidence to support the notion such business is bad for Americans or not. It just is a bad thing, and Promised Land does hardly anything to support that political view. No evidence is necessary to prop up a sappy, shallow argument.

It’s all smoke and mirrors, folks.
