After hearing so much on this film for the energy movie of the week, I felt that it did a good job on depicting the energy business, especially all the turmoil that goes along with it.
The movie started off a little slow and confusing but that was due to the multiple stories being portrayed.
As the film progresses, stories line up and made more sense and you really begin to really understand all the tragedies and corruptions that energy people have to go through. The whole movie basically showed all the stories of several people that were linked in some way to a huge oil and gas merger.
Overall the movie was satisfactory, George Clooney and Matt Damon always do great jobs acting, and I felt that it was really effective at showing the feelings behind all the characters portrayed. As I said before, the movie took a little longer than expected to reach the climax and so I sort of lost a little interest in the middle of the movie. But once all the stories tied together it really showed all the stories, like with Arash taking his frustrations on the world out on the LNG plant, and the convergence of Bob Barnes(George Clooney), Bryan Woodman (Matt Damon), and Prince Mohammed Sheik Agiza (Amr Waked) .
