    Again another pile of lies and slander against the energy industry. The film's talking points are portrayed as facts when in reality they are unsubstantiated opinions. Watching this uneven approach to fracking does more damage to the cause of environmentalists than helps it, it makes anyone who questions the actions of the energy industry to be unreasonable, unintelligent, and dogmatic. What is most saddening is that a subject like this fails to find an even film portrayal of both sides of the issue. Sad movie from a bad filmmaker. Expand

    A one-sided attack piece like FrackNation doesn't add much to the conversation.

    More than anything, FrackNation underscores the sheer complexity of a process that offers a financial lifeline to struggling farmers.

    With many of McAleer's facts coming from casual Internet searches (backed by boring shots of the computer screen), the accuracy of this crowd-sourced documentary - funded by small donations on Kickstarter - seems as reliable as a Wikipedia entry.
