Essentially, 'Gold' is an old fashioned adventure movie. A hostileenvironment, changing fortunes, shifting alliances, unexpectedadversaries, a seemingly betrayed friendship: it's all there. But thesetting is out of the ordinary: it's the financial world with millionsof dollars pumped into promising mining stocks. But those millions canjust as quickly be withdrawn when the prospects change.

The adventurer in the midst of it all is Kenny Wells, son of a Nevadagold prospector and heir to an almost bankrupt mining company. In anall-or-nothing attempt, he travels to Indonesia for a meeting with alegendary drilling expert. The next step is to find the money requiredfor the drilling. What follows, is a roller-coaster ride of successesand setbacks.

Matthew McConaughey is amazing as Kenny Wells, a raving maniac with afearless can-do mentality and a complete lack of respect for WallStreet hotshots or mining moguls. This is one of his best roles ever,and it's worth an Oscar. You can see the doubt in the eyes of everyonehe meets: is this a madman who doesn't know what he's up to, or ago-getter who doesn't give up until he reaches his goal? Wells is both,and McConaughey makes his complex character completely believable.

There are some extra layers in the story underlining this complexity:the relationship with his wife Kay, and the friendship with hisbusiness partner Mike Acosta. The latter is responsible for thespectacular ending of the story, with a really nice surprise in thelast seconds.

The whole story is based on the Bre-X scandal, which hit the worldwideheadlines in the nineties. Some details are changed, but on the wholethe story follows the real events pretty accurate. The scandal was aprime example of excessive capitalist greed, and the film is a nicereminder of it.

Gold is, by far, the oddest film of the Oscar season. It's not goodenough to be featured with some other award-based films yet it is farfrom being a bad film. It's just a very uninspired piece of filmmakingthat had an excellent script and a great cast to it, yet no flavor tothe filmmaking here. It is a standardized piece that serves as alackluster love letter to Martin Scorsese and David O. Russell withoutever really admitting it. Majority of this film is spent watchingMcCounaughey's Kenny Wells as he maneuvers through businessmen thatwant him to be put down, political groups that want to steal hisfortune and friends he can barely trust. It sounds like an amazing filmand it could have been had Gaghan not directed this film himself. Everyframe that passes, it feels like Gaghan was either worried aboutfeeling too much like Scorsese or worried that it wasn't enough likeScorsese. Either way, we know where his influences lie here. Honestly,you're better off watching The Wolf of Wall Street, if you're hopingfor something like that.

Stephen Gaghan is a very talented writer, he's given us very layeredstories with very interesting characters but this particular topicfeels like it went over his head. It is never engaging enough tosustain lasting power. McConaughey and the rest of the cast do a finejob, nothing outstanding but fine nonetheless. This was probably themost disappointing part of this film. Over the past 5 years, MatthewMcConaughey has given us more than enough reason to love hisperformances. They're layered, they're relate-able and, most of all,they're acted to perfection. This performance, in which he trades inhis slim physique for a bloated, overweight and balding man. Right offthe bat, this may have been a physically demanding role for McConaugheyand he does put his all into his performance but it still doesn't matchthe caliber of his previous performances. His dedication is clear butit still didn't feel like the great performance we thought he couldgive in this film which comes back to the issue of Gaghan's direction.

Overall, Gold is far from a bad movie. There are cool scenes in it thatare bound to interest you even if it's for a little bit. But this is afilm that comes down to a problem with the director. Gaghan, whilebeing a very talented writer, has a hard time determining his ownvision for a film that had many chances to be great but failed toreally capitalize on any of its strengths. By the end of the film, youwon't feel cheated out of your ticket money but I'm sure you won't feelall that good about it either.

In recent years, Matthew McConaughey has rehabilitated his career andhis reputation by appearing in quality motion picture after qualitymotion picture with interesting characters and characterizations.  This"McConaissance" (as it was called) was capped by his Academy Awardwinning performance in THE DALLAS BUYERS CLUB.

With his latest film, GOLD, the bright lights of the McConnaissancehave dimmed.

GOLD tells the "inspired by true events" story of Kenny Wells, aprospector, desperately search for the "big score".  When he encountersGeoligist Michael Acosta, he goes "all in" for the big score.

Sound like an interesting premise, right?  Unfortunately, under themisguided direction by Stephen Gaghan (writer of Syriana and Traffic)this premise slogs along for it's 2 hour timeframe and barely liftsabove a mild eyebrow raise.  

The movie theater we saw this flick in has recently installed thereclining "comfy" chairs.  My buddy fell asleep for 10 minutes duringthe dullest part of this dull film.  When he awoke he asked "what did Imiss".  I answered "unfortunately, not much".

McConaughey must of sensed this dullness for he tries to go over thetop to give this film something interesting at the center to watch. However, it is not NEARLY enough to rescue things.  Either McConaugheyneeded to go WAY FURTHER over the top to give it a "Leonardo DiCaprioas Jordan Bellfort" gonzo-ness, or he needed to be reigned WAY in. Where they settled made McConaughey look like he was just over-acting.

As an aside - to both performer and director - constantly showingMcConaughey in his "tighty whities" does not an interesting charactertrait make.

As for the other performers, Bryce Dallas Howard, as McConaughey'swife, was strong in a role that needed to have more screen time.  EdgarRamirez, as Geologist Acosta, was bland in a role that needed to beinteresting and Corey Stall, Toby Kebbell and Bill Camp all put in"paycheck" performances - professional, but otherwise unremarkable. Only character actor Adam LeFevre manages to make an impression.

If you are looking for a good nap, check out GOLD in a theater with"comfy seats"  otherwise, you can skip this GOLD strike.
