Presented by former US Vice President Al Gore, this documentary is a cool, clinical examination of global warming. And if you thought the repercussions were years off, think again.

Despite or perhaps because of Gore's schoolmasterly attitudes, his arguments have force. A kind of anti-charisma sees it through.

It is utterly convincing, it's emotionally powerful and it makes Gore look more charming than he ever did as a presidential candidate.

Though generally presented in a fawning, overly obsequious style, the film also has a heartening degree of candor... and its triumph is the manner in which it highlights the notion of political will as a renewable resource.

Gore is inspired here, a man on a crusade that slide by slide and impassioned remark by remark drives home the inconvenient truth about global warming. It's an alarming scenario so calling him alarmist really misses the point.

Controversy isn't always a bad thing, and Mr. Freeze's surprising warmth ignites a worthy discussion.

In spite of brief missteps, the film has an important message that needs to be heard. It's not a doom-and-gloom movie as much as it is a call to action.

If you are unfamiliar with this issue, or are a sheltered dittohead, this film is a good primer on arguments supporting the idea of global warming.

I'm recommending what is essentially a non-film because I agree with its politics and I'd like for more people to agree with me than disagree.

... For those within its reach, 'An Inconvenient Truth' is a film we can ignore only at our own peril.

Yes, it's a science lecture when all is said and done, but it's a science lesson that's never dull -- chilling in its conclusions, but hardly boring.

In my heart of hearts, I know this isn't the best way to start a movie review. But in my heart of hearts, I also know I need to do what's right.

It's hard to make a visually compelling narrative out of 100 minutes of a 58-year-old man talking about carbon-dioxide emissions, but director Davis Guggenheim does it.

As lectures on film go, An Inconvenient Truth sends its message in clear and engaging fashion.

... an important subject, and... possibly an important film.

The material is presented clearly and, for the most part, persuasively, although the side-trips into Gore's family history... seem like the minibiographies that are traditionally served up during election time.

The educational moments work beautifully, the personal bits don't. Still, one of the year's best - frightening, compelling and at points unforgettable.

The United States is by far the worst polluter on the planet, a shameful fact that has to change.
