An Inconvenient Truth is as informative, thoroughly researched, and interesting as you'd expect. What's surprising about it is that it's really entertaining as well! Packed full of spectacular cinematic footage of natural sites around the world, intercut with the human element of Gore's personal journey, this film is a must-see.

-Anonymous quote

Gore explains complex scientific ideas in plain English. He also interweaves personal events that are relevant to the storyline. This documentary is not political. Afterall, Mother Nature doesn't give a damn what your political affiliation is!! I would recommend this for all adults that care about the environment; the quality of their life; and the future quality of their children lives. Take your kids, then have a good conversation with each other. Would also recommend it as a teaching aide for schoolage children. Junior highschoolers and above should be able to grasp the basic concepts. Very well done and rivoting documentary.

Review The problem with An Inconvenient Truth isn't the message; it's the messenger. If the film's goal is to educate and warn about Global Warming, why use one of the most divisive political figures of the last decade as the spokesman? I don't have a problem with Al Gore, but how many Republicans (and possibly even Independents) are going to be interested in spending 100 minutes listening to the ex-Vice President talking about Global Warming? Thus, instead of a wake-up call, this film - which is an excellent primer about the situation - turns into a sermon for the choir.

Review Forget [Al Gore] ever ran for office. Consider him a concerned man speaking out on the approaching crisis. "There is no controversy about these facts," he says in the film...He stands on a stage before a vast screen, in front of an audience. The documentary is based on a speech he has been developing for six years, and is supported by dramatic visuals. He shows the famous photograph "Earthrise," taken from space by the first American astronauts. Then he shows a series of later space photographs, clearly indicating that glaciers and lakes are shrinking, snows are melting, shorelines are retreating...I did a funny thing when I came home after seeing "An Inconvenient Truth." I went around the house turning off the lights.
