    Peter Travers Rolling Stone

    Gore keeps us riveted by being charming, literate and profoundly persuasive on a topic that's scarier than anything in a dozen Japanese horror flicks. Vote Gore on this one. show more

    Joe Morgenstern Wall Street Journal

    The film succeeds powerfully, even though it's short on practical solutions, makes some questionable statements of fact and, given Gore's current ambiguous position in public life, requires a tighter focus on the message than on the messenger. show more

    Carrie Rickey Philadelphia Inquirer

    A disarming, funny and animated Al Gore, once a robot among presidential candidates, proves himself a rock star among environmental activists. show more

    Kirk Honeycutt The Hollywood Reporter

    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. show more

    Roger Ebert Chicago Sun-Times

    Am I acting as an advocate in this review? Yes, I am. I believe that to be "impartial" and "balanced" on global warming means one must take a position like Gore's. There is no other view that can be defended. show more

    Maitland McDonagh TV Guide

    Gore looks as energized and purposeful as Mother Earth looks sickly and mad as hell, which is no doubt why many commentators suggested it was less an environmental action statement than a test balloon for future political ambitions. show more

    Wesley Morris Boston Globe

    In an eco-horror show that politely masquerades as a documentary, the former vice president effectively warns of man-made cataclysm. show more

    Hocus pocus I think this is a ploy to cause some to get rich and other to suffer. There is no such Goble Warming! only think that is getting warm is my distrust in politics and Government waste.
