Editorial Reviews

Director Davis Guggenheim eloquently weaves the science of global warming with Al Gore's personal history and lifelong commitment to reversing the effects of global climate change in the most talked-about documentary of the year. An audience and critical favorite, An Inconvenient Truth makes the compelling case that global warming is real, man-made, and its effects will be cataclysmic if we don’t act now. Gore presents a wide array of facts and information in a thoughtful and compelling way: often humorous, frequently emotional, always fascinating. In the end, An Inconvenient Truth accomplishes what all great films should: it leaves the viewer shaken, involved and inspired.

All I can say is go out and see this movie right away!
C. Kellen
Remarkably, he makes it easy to understand, pointing out key facts, walking us through some of the more difficult to understand ideas and problems.

Ok, let me get this straight. They made a documentary about Al Gore giving a lecture? About global warming? Okay, I'm already asleep. Snore. Yawn. Why don't I just stay home and save the money I would spend to take a nap.

All kidding aside, if you know anything about Al Gore, you know this is a subject he is extremely committed to and passionate about. Very passionate. And after five years of some of the worst, most harmful environmental policy to ever come out of Washington, DC, there is no better time for "An Inconvenient Truth".

I know many consider Gore to be less than a captivating speaker. But in "An Inconvenient Truth" he comes across as a different man because he is so passionate and committed to the subject of global warming, he comes across as a different man. Informed, knowledgeable, conversational and persuasive, if he were like this during the election, there would be no Florida Recount in our history books. Okay, so that didn't happen. But the result is that Gore, much like Clinton and Carter, are trying to do something with their status to help better the world. Gore has long been an environmental advocate and it shows. He knows the facts inside and out; people have provided him with statistics, graphs, charts and more, and he uses them in this presentation.

As Gore states, he has given the lecture more than a thousand times around the globe. Because of this, he is extremely comfortable addressing large audiences, giving them a lot of scientific research to digest. Remarkably, he makes it easy to understand, pointing out key facts, walking us through some of the more difficult to understand ideas and problems. He also knows when the audience needs a break and interjects humor here and there.

When I was a child, people clapped at the end of movies -- we knew that the filmmakers wouldn't actually hear us, but we showed our appreciation nonetheless. Over the years, it seems that tradition has died out. I don't think I've heard anyone clap at the end of a movie for twenty-odd years. Until, that is, this afternoon.

The entire audience clapped at the end of "An Inconvenient Truth".

It is all too rare to see people act out of idealism and ethics. Those qualities shine throughout this film -- Al Gore has noticed a problem -- a BIG problem -- and he has learned about it, and is trying to solve it. The "news" media gives us little 15-second soundbites instead of news and arguments, believing that we, the American public, are too stupid to comprehend any non-trivial ideas. Gore, on the other hand, clearly has faith in us to UNDERSTAND, to do the right thing, and, above all, to CARE.

See it.

AIT is a documentary that throws a lot of information at you in quick succession, and it mostly succeeds at packaging that info into easily digestible sizes. However, the main parts of the doc (other than the interesting little autobiographical bits about Gore) are little more than a glorified taped college lecture. What I mean by what’s bad about this is that AIT is fairly limited in how much it can impress and convince.

For another thing, if one comes into this doc already knowing most or all of the baseline information presented, AIT does little to further illustrate or expand upon this information. As I was one of those informed people, I was basically unaffected by this film. Now that’s not to say that this is not an important film for the UNinformed (of which there are many), I’m just pointing out that this information was very easily accessible to the general public before AIT’s release, as opposed to, say, the information presented in ‘Food Inc.’ But then again, we have known for a long time that our food is really over-processed and pumped full of artificial ingredients, so I’m not sure.

In any case, the fact that ‘Truth’ is basically a recorded lecture is the main thing holding it back. I stand by my statement that the only way to effectively, and OBJECTIVELY, rate the value of a documentary is to analyze and decide how well it communicates its message, NOT the actual content that it presents. I for one am one of those many people who is on Al Gore’s side (really, I’ve been aware of this stuff for years prior to this), and I am glad that AIT has garnered some attention. Really, the issue of global climate change has always been analogous to and of similar importance to the Law of Evolution and Natural Selection from my point of view.

I laugh, first, at the negative reviews. There are those among the political "right" who consider "environmentalism" a religion. So they spout off the doctrine of their peers, ignoring the century or so of warnings one of the most recent and visible of which is this film. I thank those of that dogma. You're the ones who convinced me to see this film; had it not been for your ideological baggage--conspicuous from various "mainstream" media and here on these pages, I may have just stayed home.

True, it's full of Al Gore. In fact, that is perhaps the film's biggest weaknesses. Al quoted "a friend of mine," repeatedly, most of them, e.g., Carl Sagan, named. There was sentiment: Gore's son was nearly killed in an automobile accident at I think 6 years old. So Al became "conscientized," i.e., recognized the value of life, of the earth, etc. Unfortunately, there was the irrelevant. (See, right wingers? I even acknowledge some negative attributes of the film without throwing out the proverbial baby with the...well, you know.) There was a clip on Gore's having lost the 2000 election. I don't think that added a thing to the story. There was a slightly inferrable, "I'm better than Bush on the environment and that's bad." But that wasn't even clear. It should have been left out of the story.

Gore included lots of graphs. The empirical is important if you're trying to make a point. And those points he made effectively. One that my spouse and I both noted are the 958 (nearly 1,000 in any event) scientists who acknowledge a global warming problem with NO DISSENT. Yet, 53 percent of the mainstream media were skeptical of the scientists' claim. (Remember, those overpaid media pundits get their paychecks from the media who sensationalize the skepticism and the corporations that depend on it).

Why are the polar ice caps melting?
The only thing Mars and Earth have in common is the Sun. Since it has been determined by recent studies that Solar irradiance cannot be attributed to have had a major impact on our own current warming trend, we then have to assume that ice melting on Mars is also being caused by some other... Read More

Global Warming is a myth
Sorry Mr. Chan, but Ryan is correct. Labeling everyone liberal isn't going to change science. That's why Isaac Newton developed the scientific method - so that it would stay objective.

Conservative rejection of global warming
John, I think that the difficulty comes from the fact that they've spent so much time and money convincing themselves that it isn't true. ExxonMobil spent a tremendous amount funding the research of global warming skeptics. Fifteen years ago we actually did need more research to bring us to a... Read More

Al is not a scientist
Haha. You lost all credibility when you said "evolution" WITH the quotation remarks. I can actually picture you saying the word "evolution" while making bunny ears with your fingers. Good stuff.

And on a more serious note, Gore not being a scientist is not particularly... Read More
