Directed by Stephen Gaghan, who directed the much better SYRIANA, I enjoyed GOLD. It's not a home run. McConaughey, as he did in THE SEA OF TREES, attempts to accentuate his vulnerability, and the performance ends up being a little "in between," as are parts of the script. But there's an interesting intersection here between good old fashioned gold fever and Wall Street high finance. The narrative chugs along and Edgar Ramirez (who played Roberto Duran in HANDS OF STONE) is good.

Interesting and engaging. Yes, it's a little overdone, but it's a movie, and doesn't try to be anything else! Lots of action, never dull, and excellent acting from all!

Poorly told story, poorly acted drivel. Considering this was based on a true story, they butchered it so badly that it was just painfully ridiculous to watch. Matthew Mcconaughey's performance was terrible - there was nothing likeable about his character, so it was hard to believe that people would have invested with him.

Ahhh, who could forget the famous Bre-X saga. Certainly not the many, many folks who lost everything after buying its highly touted stocks. If you've forgotten the details (does a CEO type person pushed from a helicopter over a foreign jungle ring any bells?) this movie does a reasonable facsimile of it.

I remember when Matthew McConaughey was hot! Not so much anymore, haha. He went through a pretty dramatic physical transformation for this role. From losing over 40 pounds in one film to gaining over 40 pounds for this film, he is a talented actor dedicated to his craft and I respect that very much. Interesting true story, worth the watch.

Fast paced, chain smoking, hard drinking , bad teeth, balding Kenny Wells. Make up artists did a good job on Matthew who put on weight for the lead role. Interesting bonus features and a lot of twists and turns. Turned out to be a better movie than some viewers comments. Lots of "F" bombs.

The one redeeming quality of this film, is that you can rest assured there is NO MOVIE ON EARTH MORE STUPID. (In all aspects.) And that really says a lot, coming out of Follywood...

An interesting adventure story about a recently-divorced man and woman who join forces with a yacht-owner and his famously irresponsible daughter to find a treasure lost at sea. The actors did a good job of portraying the sometimes-quirky characters, and the story kept my interest, even as I was unable to pin down whether I thought it was an adventure movie, a comedy, a romance, or--most-likely--some combination of all of them.

Fast moving and kept my interest throughout. Always wondering what’s going to happen next. Not a predictable moment in the whole movie.

You may have easily missed this recent drama starring Matthew McConaughey. The film was inspired by a true story, and I thought it was pretty interesting. I enjoyed seeing the movie once, but it's unlikely I will watch it again. Gold is rated R for language throughout and some sexuality/nudity.

The man that invented the hamburger was smart, Mike. The man who invented the cheeseburger, now, that's the genius. Don't ask where the meat came from. Hmm? Have you ever read Christopher Columbus' journals?
-Of course not.
In his petition to the queen of Spain, he promised the conversion to her holy faith of a great number of peoples. And he went on and mentioned God 26 times. Gold, on the other hand, he mentioned 114 times.
-Smart dago. I've been wanting to ask you something, Wells.
Fire away, Mike.
-What's the meaning of the tattoo on your arm?
Oh, it's a bird. It's from a poem I read when I was a kid. Bird with no feet... sleeps in the wind.
God, we work hard in this business. Sometimes for nothing. I wake up every morning. I tell myself, "I don't have to do this. I get to do this." And then it's just blue skies. Blue skies, baby.

We're mapping the underlying geology. The cores are cut into sections, and then crushed. They are then bagged and sealed. This cage is guarded 24/7. Under guard, the samples are sent down river to independent labs in Kalimantan. If a seal is broken or damaged in any way, the lab, by law, has to discard the entire sample. Every safeguard has been put in place to assure the security of the process.
You went looking for bauxite, and you found copper. I went looking for gold and... found a friend. That is the single hokiest thing I've ever heard in my life.
Back then, if you wanted to put a hole in the ground in Indonesia, you wanted Mike Acosta telling you where to dig. He's what they called a River Walker. Yeah, a real hands-on geologist. The real deal. Oxford College, MIT. His mom was Venezuelan. His dad was English.

We weren't fooled. We just didn't look.
What is a prospector? It's someone who believes... it's out there. Who wakes up every morning, again and again, again and again... believing it's out there. And then it's not. Right? It's not. Mm-hmm. - Mm-hmm. And he's standing on the edge of the desert, staring a... new day's sunrise right in the eye, and... and he hears that little voice, a little voice that says... "Go ahead. Keep walking." And the sun gets higher and higher, and it's shining down on him, and he's really hot, and he doesn't have any water to drink, and everybody that came with him wants to turn back, and eventually, they do turn back, and there he is. And he's all alone. With the belief... that it's out there, man. It's out there. That's a prospector.

All right, let's talk about the truth. The only truth here is, when everybody's getting rich, nobody gives a shit about the truth. Come the fxck on. All anyone had to do was look, open their eyes. Man, the- (intentionally blanked for spoilers)- There were red flags everywhere. Why did no one look? 'Cause no one wanted to fxcking know. We all wanted to believe. Me, you, fxcking everybody. Why? Because we were all making so much fxcking money, man. That's the truth. That's been going on for fxcking centuries!
Now, if you'll take a second look at the geo, you will see what I see. And that's money.
-Not our money.
So one or maybe both of them, two outsiders, took everybody on Wall Street for a ride?

"Why? You're a liar." "Well, this is such an inappropriate time to dwell on that."
