It's very effective and very successful. I think it can create a debate and discussion and you can go from there.

While Gore's onstage presentation tells us nothing new, it has a renewed -- call it recycled -- potency, in light of a growing scientific consensus about changing weather patterns.

Mandatory viewing regardless, much as an alarm clock must be heeded despite its annoying ring.

Regardless of how you may feel about Gore the politician, this film is an important one, and its ultimate message of hope (it's not too late) and duty (as humans, we need to do the right thing by the planet on which we live) is inspiring and invigorating.

Brings a feeling of history: Virtually everyone who sees this movie will be galvanized to do something about global warming -- and everyone should see this movie.

Much of this material is familiar, but presented in total, over the course of 100 minutes, the impact is frightening.
June 2, 2006
An Inconvenient Truth, like its star, is quite persuasive in framing global warming as a crisis rapidly accelerating along with the planet's population. That means us. And that means the potential to take action.

In 39 years, I have never written these words in a movie review, but here they are: You owe it to yourself to see this film. If you do not, and you have grandchildren, you should explain to them why you decided not to.

Really two movies: a sobering lecture about a globe that's getting warmer and a profile of a leader whose career has always been hindered by his apparent lack of warmth.

In an eco-horror show that politely masquerades as a documentary, the former vice president effectively warns of man-made cataclysm.

Leave it to Al gore to be more interesting and endearing as an educational lecturer than he was a candidate for President of the United States.

The most compelling disaster movie of the summer.

A powerful film that educates as it engages.

In the battle between Big Trouble (Gore's line) and Big Oil (Bush's), fossil fuel won. Even with gas prices it's still winning, which is why An Inconvenient Truth, for all its limitations as cinematic agitprop, deserves an audience.

Gore has brought all the scattered news stories together in one briskly narrated, handsomely illustrated place, and the power of his points is striking. Sobering. Ultimately alarming.

An Inconvenient Truth can't, of course, reveal a future that is still up to us, but by the time you're done watching, the real question is, Which way on God's green earth would you want to err?
May 25, 2006
Gore's somewhat stiff but clearly deeply felt delivery turns out to be just right for this material. Anything else would sound shrill and shriek-y.

It seems better suited to classrooms than movie theaters, though any way its urgent message can be disseminated should be encouraged.

... the movie preaches to the choir rather than winning over new converts.

... much of what Gore says in this slide show he gives to people whose minds are not yet fully formed (undergraduates, actors) is absurd, and his assertions often contradict each other.
