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

Vulture

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.

New York Times

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.

[An] involving and unexpectedly passionate film...

TimeOut (US)

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.

Hollywood Reporter

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.

Winning and impassioned, stirring and proudly wonkish...

My fervent hope is that you will go and see it before you pick a side.

It is predominantly a lot of hot air that fails to inspire as it should.

Really good viewing

Thus movie was way more interesting than I thought it would be - it also shows up how useless our mainstream media is at showing us the real stories behind the headlines - the importance of India in the Paris Agreement was fascinating insight.


A slow burner (pun intended)

An Inconvenient Sequel is very much a continuation. Very little new information is portrayed beyond using the opportunity to justify his original film. It does get interesting when we get to the Paris Agreement, and it was interesting to see the reasoning behind the opposition. While it may come across as tooting his own horn as to how they got India to sign on, it also shows the potential when we all work towards a common goal, and look past exploiting in the name of profits. I imagine it won't be long before the next sequel "The Inconvenient Trump Card"

Compelling viewing.

Al Gore- A great man who has dedicated his life to saving our planet. great photography and with 10 years since the first movie al to of his predictions have come to reality but somehow it is stilli not believed . Worth watching


Few facts

When it comes to Al Gore there is very little he presents with full facts. Not much has changed in this story.


Thoroughly enjoyable

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!


A Gore-fest!

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.


How the World Works - Viewed through the Lens of 'Climate Change'

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.

Thought provoking

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.


Thorougly Enjoyed

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.


Highly Recommended

I highly recommend seeing this documentary. It may not be as cinematically stunning as the prequel, but it is, nonetheless, engaging in content. I was sceptical as to how much I would enjoy watching this documentary, especially on a Monday evening, but I was pleasantly surprised. It was compelling watching, and challenged me on a personal level that I did not expect it to.
