Promised Land: Collider Review

Collider:
Salesmanship can be more powerful than the truth. Tell people what they want to hear, and they won’t look too hard for something that might contradict their belief. Promised Land tries to come off as a Capra-esque story about a man discovering that he might be doing wrong to the heartland by selling environmentally hazardous natural gas. But fittingly, in a movie about ulterior motives and the easy manipulation of a pliable audience, the makers of Promised Land might have an ulterior motive of their own, which undermines a film that rarely finds any truth. (Cinema, Promised Land) D+/A

Wasn't planning on watching this before, and after this low score I doubt I'll even watch it if it came on TV!
