An Inconvenient Sequel: Truth to Power

Documentary


 

Al Gore continues his mission to bring awareness to the serious need for global action to mitigate climate change.

The protagonist has boundless energy for his cause and makes compelling arguments in interesting forums. The footage of weather disaster scenes are as alarming as the data that's presented, but the arguments put forward for securing the world's future need a better vehicle than this mediocre documentary. On the production front, apart from unevenness around the central message and the clunky soundtrack, it's too much about the one figure who, gratingly, is ever the politician. Truth is not a one man show.
