Eleven years after An Inconvenient Truth Mr. Gore remains a prodigy of hope, with energy that seems endlessly renewable.
Joe Morgenstern, Wall Street Journal
In a summer movie landscape with Spider-Man, a simian army waging further battle for the planet and Charlize Theron as a sexy Cold War-era superspy, it says something that one of the most compelling characters is Al Gore.
Ben Kenigsberg, New York Times
Synopsis:In the 2006 documentary An Inconvenient Truth, former U.S. vice president Al Gore sounded the alarm about man-made climate change; this sequel is even more urgent, detailing some of the environmental disasters that have come to pass during a decade of rising temperatures. Directors Bonni Cohen and Jon Shenk follow Gore beyond the lecture circuit and into the field: to Greenland, where scientists show how glacier melt escalates; to Miami Beach, where costly elevated roads are needed to circumvent the rising sea level; and to India, where the vice president implores government ministers to abandon construction of coal-burning energy plants. Some might see the film as lionizing Gore, but it's a fascinating primer on how to engage and train citizen activists, from the grass roots to the corridors of power.
