As much as it hopes to incite outrage and to stir a complacent body politic into action, [it] never quite rises to the level of urgency the subject requires.
| Original Score: 2.5/4
A blistering attack on politicians, propagandists, dissemblers and other climate-change deniers.
| Original Score: 3/4
The film's effectiveness largely stems from the flat-out lameness of the opposition arguments, the lack of scientific credentials of those making them, and the self-interest of their corporate bosses.
Filmmaker Craig Scott Rosebraugh seems to take a kind of perverse glee in hauling out the worst offenders among what he calls the climate change deniers for public shaming.
What's next, "Big Oil Is Full of Meanies"?
| Original Score: 1/4
The film makes its case well. The problem, though, is it seems a bit late.
| Original Score: C+
The film's structural flaws appear to stem from the lack of access to oil industry titans and the other usual suspects. (To be fair, the filmmakers tried.)
| Original Score: 2/4
Collated for momentum, the film's many interviews, wide-ranging archival footage and montage of modern ecological disasters form a blunt but carefully positioned instrument.
| Original Score: 3.5/5
Craig Rosebraugh is clearly out to take no prisoners in his timely documentary tracking the politics, inconvenient truths and alternative "realities" of the endless global warming debate.
| Original Score: 3/5
In Rosebraugh's uncompromising hands, it plays out like a strident screed for those already burning with righteous indignation.
This forceful documentary deals with the hot button issue of climate change in powerfully compelling fashion.
A grab bag of environmentally related talking points that never quite congeals into an argument, let alone a prescription.
[It] shines a harsh light on the lengths the energy industry continues to go to in order to head off climate-related legislation-and assure the public there's nothing wrong with continuing to rely on fossil fuels.
