Gold Description

GOLD is the epic tale of one man’s pursuit of the American dream, to discover gold. Starring Oscar winner Matthew McConaughey as Kenny Wells, a prospector desperate for a lucky break, he teams up with a similarly eager geologist and sets off on an amazing journey to find gold in the uncharted jungle of Indonesia. Getting the gold was hard, but keeping it would be even harder, sparking an adventure through the most powerful boardrooms of Wall Street. The film is inspired by a true story.

Gold Rush follows six men who, in the face of an economic meltdown, risk everything - their families, their dignity, and in some cases, their lives - to strike it rich mining for gold in the wilds of Alaska. Inspired by his father Jack, Todd Hoffman of Sandy, Oregon, leads a group of greenhorn miners to forge a new frontier and save their families from dire straits. While leasing a gold claim in Alaska, Todd and his company of newbies face the grandeur of Alaska as well as its hardships, including an impending winter that will halt operations and the opportunity to strike gold. In an effort to keep the operation running, the team takes fate into their own hands with a make or break venture that will change their lives forever.

Gold Movie Reviews

  • Not great

    Kenny's character is rather pathetic and there is way too much profanity. Glad I only paid $.99 to watch it because it isn't worth more.
  • I know why the ratings are low

    These days, there are TV shows that have feature film direction production quality. Unfortunately there are also films with TV direction and production quality. This is one of them. It starts from a hyped up "strike it rich!" story line and never convinces us that it's anything more than commodity. It's too bad because it could have been great. Lazy camera work, mediocre sensationalist writing, no direction to speak of and schizophrenic editing, topped off with a distracting and amateur soundtrack, and McConaughey's outstanding performance gets lost in the mess. Too bad.
  • Solid movie

    Great story and acting from Matthew. Highly recommend.
  • Entertaining

    Meggie Gray Andersen
    Based on a true story with some artistic liberties that deviate from what really happened. I found it entertaining. Great acting.
  • I'm not impress or entertained.

    All the hype of a high school pep rally, but not as entertaining.
  • alcohol and gold don't mix

    The make-up team did a good job with McConaughey's face and he added the appropriate body weight and gestures, but overall I found the movie dull. Rags to riches to rags to riches, all the while thrashing about in a drunken stupor, I had no sympathy for "Kenny" and was only mildly interested in the story.
  • Great Movie

    Typical Mathew McConaughey amazing acting. The movie is slow-paced, but it has a great story from beginning to right at the end. Well directed. Worth watching.
  • Boring

    Golden skies
    This movie is boring, regardless of whether you know the real story or not, this movie is boring. Matthew McConaughey pretty much mumbled his way throughout the movie, I had such a difficult time understanding most of the words that were coming out of his mouth that I almost turned on subtitles. Corey Stoll was a breath of fresh air, even though he had ony a few scenes in this movie. Lucky for me, I was able to rent it for the "movie of the week" promotional price of $0.99, so not a big loss. Word of advice...don't waste your money and the two hours on this!
  • Eh

    Its alright. Enjoyed it
  • Poorly written

    2 1/2 stars. I thought the movie was ok, not good and not terrble. Poorly written. Would I watch it again? No.
