This mysterious drama film stars an all-star cast, which allowed the movie to flourish and draw people in. However, it also lacked in many elements. The movie is about a man who is desperate for cash, and decides to seek the help of a geologist so that they can mine for gold and then sell in on Wall Street. Per usual, Matthew McConaughey had a wonderful performance that embodied his character and brought charm, wit, and rawness to the film. Where the movie lacked was in its ability to tell a story, and make you care about what happens next without being able to predict the ending. I would rate this movie 3.5/5 stars for having powerful characters, and would recommend it to those who like rags to riches tales.

It was quite a fair movie for most of the time, but the final wrap-up seemed to me what you could call stupid.

Creepy with a twist that I didn't see coming.

This didn't do it for me. I skipped ahead quite a bit and wasn't all that surprised.

so you wait 60 minutes hoping that there is MORE to the story then what appears, then the so called "reveal" is not revealed because there is NOTHING going on !!!..and there are zero scares, and although the acting and filmwork is worthy , the result is a b-movie that should have been a movie of the week, tame enough for 10 year old kids...Yes I have seen soooo many of these, and continue to watch them because every once and a while there is a sleeper that surprises you....this is not one of them. Ok time waster????...just.
