Movie Info

A decade after An Inconvenient Truth brought climate change into the heart of popular culture comes the riveting and rousing follow-up that shows just how close we are to a real energy revolution. Vice President Al Gore continues his tireless fight, traveling around the world training an army of climate champions and influencing international climate policy. Cameras follow him behind the scenes-in moments private and public, funny and poignant-as he pursues the empowering notion that while the stakes have never been higher, the perils of climate change can be overcome with human ingenuity and passion. Renowned filmmakers Bonni Cohen and Jon Shenk (Audrie & Daisy, 2016 Sundance Film Festival) have taken the baton from 2006 Academy Award-winner Davis Guggenheim. What started then as a profound slide show lecture has become a gorgeously cinematic excursion. Our extraordinary former vice president invites us along on an inspirational journey across the globe that delivers the tools to heal our planet. The question is: Will WE choose to take the baton?

An Inconvenient Sequel: Truth to Power is a hugely effective lecture.

Railing against rising tides, Gore emerges as a cannier performer and a more compelling subject than he was in 2006; a message that sounded critical then has become no less urgent with time.

Would I still recommend "An Inconvenient Sequel"? Sure, although I doubt there is much one could glean from this movie that couldn't be obtained by rewatching "An Inconvenient Truth."

For those of us who need no convincing of the truth of man-made climate change, but find the problem too paralyzingly abstract, Gore's workmanlike methods are both fascinating, encouraging, and, yes, even a little exciting.

Gore is seen on the phone and in meetings with various figures, pushing toward a goal of saving the planet. "The Avengers" do it with intergalactic battles, Gore does it with an iPhone and a global travel itinerary.

There's more doom and gloom - but also hope for meaningful change - to be found in Al Gore's followup to his Oscar-blessed 2006 doc that sounded the alarm about global warming.

Audience Reviews for An Inconvenient Sequel: Truth To Power

Following on a decade from when former American Vice President, Al Gore alerted the world about the threats of Global Warming and their impacts on our planet and our lives, it seems all too real now that another one of these films didn't really need to be made. However, it's most certainly a film everyone and I mean 'Everyone" on this entire planet needs to see. Rather than alluring to the obvious shocking facts and events affecting our planet and way of life, audiences actually see Al Gore for what he's really doing in real life 'being the most influential person of his generation' inspiring others to take up arms in the fight for Climate and how the world's democracies are politically unwise when it comes to using the actual solutions. But what I actually take away from this film is that despite everything we're fighting for, the film gave me a renewed sense of hope that greater change will come and when it comes only then will we look back and see how all this was done. Even before you can say "F*ck Donald Trump", just know full well how far we've come, how much of a difference we're making and how much the world is changing for the better than the worst either to ourselves or the planet. In the end it made me think, 'Deniers will deny but they will not last long, at all.'
