User Reviews

 
Same movie as Black Gold.
22 May 2016 | by somecutenameSee all my reviews

Why does this movie have two different names and two different "looks"? It's a good movie and everyone need to know what's really going on, what our government is allowing to go on around the world. People around the world either love Americas or totally hate us. Stuff like this is why. Arrogant corporations exploiting second and third world countries. Getting tax credits to it. The acting was okay. I overlooked it because the story was so good. The music for the credits was not appropriate. This is a serious subject, why play an upbeat song? I'm one of those people that actually sticks around for the credits. The music was distracting.
