An Inconvenient Sequel: Truth to Power shows that Gore hasn't slacked off from bringing the message to the world that mankind is responsible for changes that, if left unchecked, will bring drastic changes to the world we live in.

Bless Al Gore and everything he stands for, but not every picture is worth a thousand words.

Given the monumental scariness of the original documentary, it's striking how optimistic sections of this one are.

An Inconvenient Sequel: Truth to Power is a hugely effective lecture.
August 16, 2017
As Gore admits, he's often tempted to give in to despair. Yet he goes on. Doggedness has its virtues.
August 16, 2017
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.
August 15, 2017
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."
August 15, 2017
Thought-provoking and oddly hopeful for a subject that seems so bleak.

The Gore of today is unquestionably a man of conviction, which may help explain why he has become a warmer, more personable screen presence than he used to be.

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.
August 3, 2017
Some might see the film as lionizing Gore, but it's a fascinating primer on how to engage and train citizen activists, from the grass roots to the corridors of power.
August 3, 2017
An informative documentary that's certain to bolster awareness of an ongoing cause for alarm.
August 3, 2017
Directed in disjointed and sometimes unfocused fashion by Bonni Cohen and Jon Shenk, An Inconvenient Sequel: Truth to Power is nonetheless worth a viewing.
August 3, 2017
Covers much of the same ground of the first film, but with a tone that feels, at times, midway between a sense of resignation and despair.
August 3, 2017
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.
August 3, 2017
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.
August 2, 2017
Just as raw information, this is interesting stuff, and it's amplified by Gore's delivery, a unique mix of self-deprecating folksiness, geekiness and evangelical zeal.
August 1, 2017
Truth to Power sprawls when it most needs to focus, diluting the power punch of the original with too much bobbing and weaving. But it's hard to argue that the crusade isn't still vital.
