Even if you're a climate change denier, many of the ideas Gameau puts forward can be extremely beneficial in terms of pure economic value.

2040 is an optimistic film that tries a little too hard to be entertaining as well as informative.

[Michael] Moore's stamp is all over 2040 both behind and in front of the camera.

Gameau pulls away from the apocalyptic doomsaying hard-wired into so much of the enviro-debate...Wisely, his speculations are restricted by the self-imposed discipline that they all need to be rooted in practices that already exist. A very smart move.

None of the ideas explored here are purely theoretical or pie in the sky. Whether technological or systems-based solutions, they all exist now and could be massively expanded to huge global benefit.

Damon Gameau's speculative documentary-of-sorts is an accessible and particularly optimistic view of what the future might look like if we all do the right thing now.

You can only hope that the time when this sort of optimism was scoffed at by climate change deniers is over and that our leaders will be moving with increased speed...

Gameau's modest, yet refreshingly upbeat game plan for his self-designed fact-finding mission is all about looking for solutions, rather than anguishing over problems.

2040 is an accomplished documentary for smart audiences who are willing to be informed.

You can't please everyone. Gameau is at least doing what he can to talk about some big problems, in an entertaining and accessible way.

...through a self-deprecating and endearingly 'dad joke' sense of humour, this inherently-political work is kept within the realms of the personal.

Gameau defaults to the position of inspiring people rather than alarming or overwhelming them. You leave the film wanting more, not less, of these sorts of productions.

Gameau's relentlessly cheery screen persona may grate with grouchy old cynics like me, but his noble motives and positive vibes are hard to fault.
