"Uzun zamandır beklettiğim bir diğer film. Bu ara biraz bekleyenlerden devam etmek iyi sonuçlar getiriyor. Şirketlerin, insanların verimli arazileriyle, umutlarıyla, hayatlarıyla nasıl oynadığını anlatan harika bir film diyebilirim. İstediklerini yaptırmak için göze alamayacakları oyun yok. Kesinlikle izlenmesi gereken bir diğer film. Biraz fazla uzun ve durağan gözükebilir ama izlemeye kesinlikle değer..."

"Not only is the film dull, but it takes a complex issue (in this case fracking) and tries to pretend the answer to the question is simple. As a result, the film ends up being preachy and simple-minded."

" I can't believe how bland this movie is. I can't believe that none of these actors was able to give it the push it needed to get rid of that blandness. Matt Damon's performance isn't bad- he just constantly looks like he wishes he were doing something else. What truly astounds me is that actresses of the caliber of Frances McDormand and Rosemarie DeWitt, both of whom have killed me with stuff they've done in other films, wasted their time and talents here. The fact that not even John Krasi"

"5.12 Gus Van Sant rarely makes crappy movies, and, well, he also rarely makes exciting ones either. "Promised Land" is a movie fast-asleep yet interesting to watch because, first of all, the acting is great. Especially Matt Damon, grey hair and fencing with his emotions. And there's Hal Holbrook, who have recently churned out one movie after another as if time is running out. Second, the story's well-written and by no-less than Damon and John Krasinki in part."

"A salesman for a natural gas company experiences life-changing events after arriving in a small town, where his corporation wants to tap into the available resources. Pretty great cast and a nice thinking person's plot. Nice to see Matt Damon working under Gus Van Sant again. Nice to see John Krasinski in a different kind of role. I enjoyed the information I learned from both sides of the spectrum of natural gas vs the environment. Pretty good twist and a great ending. "
