    A straightforward record of the lecture Gore has toured for years, juiced by elaborate graphics. An excellent educational tool, picture may prove an awkward fit for theatrical distribution.
  2. The documentary is an act of political activism. Guggenheim and his politically conscious producers, Laurie David, Lawrence Bender and Scott Z. Burns, have no interest in either challenging Gore's viewpoint or giving opposing opinions equal time. The film is simply a conduit for Gore's message.

    An Inconvenient Truth does restore one's faith in the value of documentary-as-lecture, not least by extolling the virtues (rare as clean water these days) of politician-as-teacher.

    FIlled with errors and half truths, it's no wonder the mainstream media loved it. So why is Gore riding around in chartered mega-jets FIlled with errors and half truths, it's no wonder the mainstream media loved it. So why is Gore riding around in chartered mega-jets and traveling in 4 car caravans? If he beleived his own material, he would have moved in with the Amish long ago! Full Review »

    Anyone who watched this movie and thought now they knew everything about this anthropogenic global warming issue is utterly deluded! this Anyone who watched this movie and thought now they knew everything about this anthropogenic global warming issue is utterly deluded! this movie was nothing but a self-serving propaganda campaign and a scare-mongering strategy! the movie did not address a single argument against the AGW issue and instead delivered a 98 min rhetoric on the "catastrophe" facing mankind! the many inaccuracies and blatant lies stated in this movie are so nauseating only a lay person with zero scientific knowledge would buy the ridiculous claims made in 'An Inconvenient Truth'.

    A convenient lie, absolutely no basis in fact, a fallacy.
