An Inconvenient Truth Movie Review

Are you interested in learning more about global warming?  If you are interested in familiarizing yourself with the science behind global warming, the impact it will have on the planet, as well as ways that we can help to stop global warming, you will find that you have a number of different options. Although you can turn to news reports, books and other printed resources on global warming, and the internet, you may want to examine documentaries.

In recent years, documentaries have increased in popularity.  This is due in part to knowledge.  With the world constantly changing, and not just in terms of global warming, many feel “lost,” if they aren’t in the know.  This is the main purpose of documentaries, to educate, yet entertain viewers.  If you would like to learn more about global warming though documentaries, you will want to examine Al Gore’s An Inconvenient Truth.

Until recently, Al Gore was most well known for his role of the Vice President of the United States.  He served as the Vice President under Bill Clinton.  More recently, Al Gore has been known for his active role in the fight against global warming.  In addition to explaining the science behind global warming and in addition to describing the impacts it will have on our planet, Al Gore is also known for sharing the many ways that we, as humans, can help to stop global warming.  Many of these ideas are easy and affordable to implement.

Returning back to the documentary, An Inconvenient Truth, this is one of the most impact having documentaries you will likely see in your lifetime.  What makes this documentary unique and well worth the watch is the combination of scientific proof and passion.  Al Gore has numerous resources for you to examine on your television screen.  These resources include graphs, scanned documents from global warming cover-ups, and much more.  The passion in this movie comes from Al Gore himself.  He has as way about sharing his knowledge and information in a way that will rock you to your core.

Speaking of being shocked, this documentary, which is basically a recording of PowerPoint presentations Gore has given across the county and around the world, has a huge shock factor.  This is most commonly seen with before and after pictures.  Mount Kilimanjaro is one of the examples used.  The computer generated images that show you the impact on coastal flooding, which will result from global warming, will either leave your mouth gaping open in shock or leave you in tears.

Even though Al Gore’s An Inconvenient Truth documentary comes highly rated and recommended, by celebrities, scientists, meteorologists, other political figures, and everyday individuals, you may be unsure if it is worth the buy.  As a reminder, this documentary and others can usually be found for rent in one of your local video stores. 

Despite being able to rent An Inconvenient Truth, as opposed to buying it, you may still be unsure if it is worth the watch.  If your movie tastes typically involve comedies, action, and drama, you may assume that a documentary on global warming is not the perfect match for you.  If that is the case, you will want to watch the previews or the trailer for this riveting documentary.  There, you will find the tagline “If you love your planet.  If you love your children.  You have to see this film.”  If that doesn’t send a tingle down your spine, what will?
