Kenny Wells, a modern-day prospector, hustler, and dreamer, is desperate for a lucky break. Left with few options, Wells teams up with an equally luckless geologist to execute a grandiose, last-ditch effort: to find gold deep in the uncharted jungle of Indonesia.

  • Actually a pretty entertaining movie

    March 21st, 2017

    I actually thought this was a pretty good movie, despite the relatively low ratings. Both McConaughey and Ramírez played very well, also good to see Stoll in this movie. The story was entertaining, never a dull moment (unlike Moonlight, sorry, but that was really boring and I believed the rave reviews...). Anyway, it was worth seeing it! ...

  • "Gold" is pure gold

    March 8th, 2017

    I reviewed only one movie on IMDb so far, but "Gold" is much better than the ratings and other users' reviews suggest, so it's good to balance things out. . First of all, you have a three-dimensional protagonist you can sympathize with. He's unattractive, unlucky, drinking way too much - like most of us are, ha ha. In fact, Kenny is very human wit...

  • Capitalist adventure movie

    April 9th, 2017

    Essentially, 'Gold' is an old fashioned adventure movie. A hostile environment, changing fortunes, shifting alliances, unexpected adversaries, a seemingly betrayed friendship: it's all there. But the setting is out of the ordinary: it's the financial world with millions of dollars pumped into promising mining stocks. But those millions can just as...

  • Entertaining Yet Uninspired.

    January 1st, 2017

    Gold is, by far, the oddest film of the Oscar season. It's not good enough to be featured with some other award-based films yet it is far from being a bad film. It's just a very uninspired piece of filmmaking that had an excellent script and a great cast to it, yet no flavor to the filmmaking here. It is a standardized piece that serves as a lackl...

  • McCounaghey never stops

    March 4th, 2017

    An easy example of how everybody goes mad around gold is this movie that tells a story about massive if can be called fraud but more trick played. Kenny Wells (Matthew McCounaghey) is a successor of company that deals with findings of minerals and making profits outs of it and as time went by they were running deeper and deeper into a hole. After ...

  • A lot of content, not a lot of substance

    April 22nd, 2017

    First of, Gold is better than its IMDb rating and meta-score. I feel this movie is a victim of the studio going wild with a pair of scissors, trying to make it short(er) (even at 2 hours) to please the mainstream audience, but while doing that, this movie loses a lot of substance. Character development is lacking, apart from our protagonist, so it...

  • This film may not be a nugget, but it's worth watching if you don't have to dig too deep

    May 4th, 2017

    "Gold" is an American movie in the English language from 2016 and the most recent directorial effort by Oscar-winning writer Stephan Gaghan. He did not write it this time, but the script is by Emmy nominees Massett and Zinman. It runs for pretty much two hours exactly and Oscar-winning actor Matthew McConaughey is basically in every scene during t...

  • Bronze at best

    September 8th, 2017

    The synopsis of this film couldn't be more misleading. This is NOT 'a journey to find gold in the uncharted jungle of Indonesia', like the synopsis suggests. It's more like an office drama set in the big city, with only sporadic scenes of actual gold hunting. It has completely the wrong focus and is told in a way that the viewer can't help but fee...

  • Another notable McConaughey turn can't save this drama

    June 14th, 2017

    A few years ago a performance like the one Matthew McConaughey delivers here in Stephen Gaghan's based on a true tale Gold would've created quite a stir.. It's a credit to the actor, who resurrected his career from the doldrums of so-so romcoms, Surfer Dudes and other forgettable affairs to all of a sudden become an Oscar winning and HBO headlinin...

    September 1st, 2017

    Inspired by the Bre-X scandal, it's 1988 Reno. Hard drinking Kenny Wells (Matthew McConaughey) and girlfriend Kay (Bryce Dallas Howard) are struggling. He's a lifelong wildcat prospector working for his respected father until his sudden death.
