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.
Unlike so many advocacy documentaries, this one lets the other side speak its piece. It also reminds viewers of the single biggest change since "Truth": how much better organized and entrenched climate deniers have become.
No doubt you will be able to find articles explaining why seemingly clear proof of climate change isn't proof at all, but it looks pretty dramatic to me. But I'm just the movie reviewer. Please, spare me your emails.
Gore declares that we cannot go back, we cannot lose ground, we cannot surrender -- but he seems as at a loss as anyone else about what to do next. Which makes An Inconvenient Sequel a pretty accurate document of the times.
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.
