i really enjoyed a preview of An Inconvenient Sequel: Truth To Power (a mouthful of a title!) at the Roxy today. It was very well made, gripping, enlightening, and spectacular in places, also sad. Al Gore was the perfect host, and i appreciated getting to know him better through this film. It will receive an award or two -- go see it!


Starts off with a bang, showing the effects of climate change in the 11 years since the original film. Images of natural disasters, coupled with damning statistics, are shocking to witness. The emotional testimony of flood survivors is heart wrenching. However, things slow down when the doco focuses on Gore's involvement in the Paris accord, overplaying his involvement and - at times - comes across more like a campaign ad.


Fascinating ... as much for the chance to observe a consummate politician at work as for an update on the various voices (& forces) behind disparate world attitudes to Climate Change.

Found myself still thinking about this film hours and days later. Perhaps nothing new in the description of the climate crisis but the message of hope and the encouragement for everyone to do something small very inspiring. Al Gore is certainly totally committed to spreading his message.


My girlfriend and I almost didn't go but thank fully we did as we found it incredibly interesting, we both new Al Gore was strongly behind Climate change awareness but not to the degree that he is.

The Press Reviews

  • For those who understand the threat of climate change, this will be a timely reminder of its ever important place in contemporary society… Full Review

  • For those of us who need no convincing of the truth of man-made climate change, but find the problem too paralyzingly abstract, Gore's workmanlike methods are both fascinating, encouraging, and, yes, even a little exciting. Full Review

  • In a summer movie landscape with Spider-Man, a simian army waging further battle for the planet and Charlize Theron as a sexy Cold War-era superspy, it says something that one of the most compelling characters is Al Gore. Full Review

  • [An] involving and unexpectedly passionate film... Full Review

  • The serious issue of global warming won't be minimised by a mediocre documentary, but it has yet to find a filmmaker inflamed with rage and visual passion. Full Review

  • The movie... can hardly hope to create the sensation of its Oscar-winning predecessor. But it finds plenty to add, both in cementing the urgency of Gore's message and in finding cause for hope. Full Review
