An Inconvenient Truth Reviews

Three Movie Buffs

Because of its biased tone and shameless promotion of Al Gore it is simply preaching to the converted.

... much of what Gore says in this slide show he gives to people whose minds are not yet fully formed (undergraduates, actors) is absurd, and his assertions often contradict each other.

After sitting through this monotone lecture on melting glaciers and carbon dioxide, you'll be eager to drop the class.

The film makes [Gore] out to be a bigger martyr and a better savior than Jesus Christ, himself.

Film Threat

A 96-minute political commercial supporting the deification of Al Gore.

... the movie preaches to the choir rather than winning over new converts.

Has its heart in the right place but overall the film stands as a one-track doomsday warning with too little substance to achieve its intended effect.

Can you dislike Al Gore's green documentary 'An Inconvenient Truth' and still like trees?

No matter how much generosity critics and activists show this movie, it is still a boring slideshow by a boring speaker with cool graphics and thus, a boring movie.

Parroting conventional wisdom is anything but inconvenient, and a theory is not a truth. The 'sky is falling' always sells -- books, movies and politicians.

Gore plainly illustrates the bind we find ourselves in environmentally, while swiftly and effectively dismissing any so-called 'debate' on the issue.

Netflix puts this Oscar winning documentary out again for those who spent the past seven years listening to paid-off-deniers and assorted other Fox News liars.

I wish that there was a way to get the facts in this film in front of the audience that needs to see it, the audience that takes the words of human mockeries like Michael Crichton and Michelle Malkin as gospel.

In 39 years, I have never written these words in a movie review, but here they are: You owe it to yourself to see this film. If you do not, and you have grandchildren, you should explain to them why you decided not to.

The clarity and simplicity of the presentation is remarkable. Gore is a likable, confident, humorous speaker. And the material reminds us of the need for vigilance.

Gore's somewhat stiff but clearly deeply felt delivery turns out to be just right for this material. Anything else would sound shrill and shriek-y.

In the battle between Big Trouble (Gore's line) and Big Oil (Bush's), fossil fuel won. Even with gas prices it's still winning, which is why An Inconvenient Truth, for all its limitations as cinematic agitprop, deserves an audience.

Top Critic IconTop Critic

The film succeeds powerfully, even though it's short on practical solutions, makes some questionable statements of fact and, given Gore's current ambiguous position in public life, requires a tighter focus on the message than on the messenger.
