Rather good
25 July 2008 | by (London, UK) – See all my reviews

At once fulfilling and confounding expectations. It has half the cast and all the production values of BBC flagship dramas (Spooks and Hustle) that fall short of their superior American counterparts. But it has backed its ambition with money on wonderful location shoots, Lukas Strebel's feature-grade photography and a trump card of political drama casting.

Bradley Whitford tears around this 'TV mini-series' in a Michael Douglas-in-Falling Down buzzcut, making himself the least likable, most watchable character on screen. His gravitas, warped into delivering the ideological heart of the script - not simply that climate change is bad but rather the sociopolitical implications for dealing with it are extremely serious - is the sine qua non of this film's success, such as it is.

The principal cast grouped around Whitford dispense the narrative drama ably enough. I found myself more impressed with Neve Campbell than with her British counterparts (Penry-Jones & Marc Warren). Here and elsewhere the script demands a sort of infomercial mentality though which always grates. British TV drama still isn't quite there. 5/10
