If you’ve ever had the pleasure of watching The Bourne Identity, Mr & Mrs Smith, Jumper, or Edge of Tomorrow; then you will know the magic that each film brings due to it's exceptional action content. Director behind each successful film, Doug Liman, certainly has an eye for the art of action and suspense; so will his new 2017 war film The Wall, explaining the story soldiers post the end of the 2007 Iraq War; bring the same impact as his previous films, or will the plot and content be a war in itself?
Some say that global warming is merely a myth and how the fluctuating global temperatures are of normal standard. However, others believe that within the duration of 50 years, the average global temperature has increased at a faster rate than usual, and as experts confirm; will continue to accelerate. Whether or not you’re a believer of global warming; there have been multiple documentaries to prove that this theory is seldom problematic. One of the main films that showcased this theory in it’s entirety was 2006 doco film, An Inconvenient Truth; starring former Vice President of the United States and well-known environmentalist, Al Gore. The documentary received exceptional reviews from critics, won an Oscar and Nobel Peace Prize due to it’s powerful message of saving the planet from pollutive catastrophes.
Now in the year 2017, Gore has decided to release a follow-up to the film known as An Inconvenient Sequel: Truth to Power, where we can see what environmental work has been done over the past ten years. But will this sequel be an inconvenient disaster or will Al Gore bring an even more empowering awareness to his viewers?
A decade after AN INCONVENIENT TRUTH brought climate change into the heart of popular culture, comes the riveting and rousing follow-up that shows just how close we are to a real energy revolution.
