      The story of rags to riches has been told over and over, it's rare when one can keep you entertained, Gold is one such film. The plot is nothing new, yet we willingly fall into step with the actors as they overnight go from the whipping boy to the man of the hour. We witness their seemingly miracle wealth grow and than witness it's unexplainable disappearance. I recommend tagging along to discover how this rags to riches story turns out. Fools Gold is a powerful commodity amoung the rich and greedy.

      A great McConaughey performance

      Matthew McConaughey plays a modern day minerals prospector looking for gold in Indonesia. McConaughey goes, completely convincingly, from the emotionally highest high to the lowest low in his pursuit. If the movie has a message, it might be a cliche: To be alive, pursue your dream, and then even the lowest low is okay. But McConaughey makes that cliche a believable reality with his bravura performance.

      McConaughey Plays a Different Role in "Gold"

      For years, most of us McConaughey fans have enjoyed his roles as a good-looking ladies man. In "Gold", he is practically bald-headed as a hustler who is always looking for a "get rich quick" job. He hooks up with a similar guy who is always looking for the "big payoff". The film was shot in several countries and directed by Oscar nominee Stephen Gaghan. Interesting film so check it out!

      "Gold" is an action/drama movie based on a true story that will keep you on your toes. Many twists and turns throughout this film kept me interested the whole time. Matthew McConaughhey put his heart and soul into the role of "Kenny Wells", a prospector who is desperate for a break. Definitely don't want to miss this one!

      Had the pleasure of seeing this film with my wife and we thoroughly enjoyed it. Had a good level of drama, with the occasional laugh in there as well to lighten the tone a bit. Overall a good film that I would recommend to those that saw the trailer and felt it was interesting. It will not disappoint.

      Matthew McConaughey plays what is a bit of a different role... and look for him. We are use to Matthew being a well dressed debonair guy, needless to say that wasn't what he was in this movie. While certainly not the best of his movies, it has its moments.

      THI MOVIE WAS THE TYPE OF MOVIE THAT CREATES MANY QUESTIONS ABOUT THE SUBJECTS AND THEIR MOTIVES. IT WAS A STEADY BUT SLOW PREMISE THAT SOMEONE WAS GOING TO GET RICH. THE STORYLINE WILL NOT LET YOU DOWN. LOTS OF UPS AND DOWNS.

      Great story based on Canadian prospector and mining company David Walsh is played by Matthew McConaughey in excellent role and will not give away rest of movie plot. Worth watching and ending has twist to it, read the book for true story also.
