It's a slick and reassuring follow-up, if a naggingly superficial one...

A surprisingly optimistic progress report.

Does Paine owe capitalism an apology? The market for electric cars was there, after all, and electric cars finally came along.

I await the next, more adjusting swing of the roundabout for Paine and volt-powered automotion: perhaps, The Electric Car Settles into a Median State Equidistant Between Success and Failure.

The techie stuff is light and the mood mostly optimistic, which makes for a slightly bland experience.

Here's a rarity: an environmentally themed documentary that's got a positive story to tell.

"Revenge of the Electric Car" lacks the urgency of "Who Killed the Electric Car?" But Paine's thorough knowledge of his subject, and engaging way with an interview, make the follow-up film a fun ride.

If you thought you'd never mist up at a nonfiction movie about plug-in autos, you're in for a surprise. This is a surprisingly emotional trip, and a very enjoyable one.

I doubt "Revenge of the Electric Car" will change any minds, but I could see it shifting them slightly, and that's not nothing.

The first film was charged with drama. "Revenge" is somewhat anticlimactically charged with a wall plug.

Endlessly fascinating for car nuts.

The movie is interesting now and, given its subject, should even be more interesting in about a hundred years. Stick around.

More hopeful but also more complex and lacking the focused urgency of the original.

November 2, 2011
An entertaining look at the auto industry's about-face on electric cars, but a movie that could have dug deeper, especially in a political climate where one of two parties wears as a badge of honor their continued rejection of climate science.

In the end, Revenge is sweet, and Paine's outlook is positive, with a prospect of clean air and even an end of oil dependency.

Chalk this up with The Godfather Part II and The Empire Strikes Back as one of the few sequels that's better than the original.

Fascinating and highly entertaining...
October 22, 2011
Though not as engrossing as the first film (2006's "Who Killed the Electric Car?"), "Revenge" pulls back the cover on the major car manufacturers' more recent efforts.

Wall Street might want to take notice of how quickly tides can change.

This is still the kind of film that's probably most necessary if movies hope to play any kind of part in our cultural rehab.
