Review: Gold

Matthew McConaughey brings the gold performance for Gold.
Gold is something you might be thinking about going to watch in theaters, and if you’re like myself, you will see it. The fact of the matter is anytime there is a movie with Matthew McConaughey and it has to do with ‘real life events’ and it has him with trying to find something (gold in this case) we all sign ourselves up to see it. The real question is, should you?

Gold is just as it seems to be. It’s about a guy who goes crazy for gold. He tries to find it, creates a company and sells his shares. It's pretty basic.

The issue, for me, is the ‘real life events’ thing. This movie is about the real life events of some company who found gold, but ripped off the system and it's share holders. Now before you hate comment, this isn’t a spoiler, it’s real life stuff. The only issue then is that there is no real Kenny Wells, the character Matthew McConaughey plays. At least I couldn't find any on Google. Now if you find something more, leave a comment below and I’ll give you a personal shout out at my Will reading.

So the question I asked myself is, why did Matthew McConaughey look like he did? If you know the answer to this, please comment it. I’ll give you more shout outs. I got that he was a drunk, so he had to have the quote beer belly, but they didn’t have to make him look like some bum who is a gold digger in the 1840s. I'm sure some ladies won't appreciate this if they are going into this movie think they might see Matthew McConaughey shirtless or something. You might actually be sad when you do see him shirtless.

So all in all, head out to see this movie. It is actually a fun movie to watch.
