Revenge of the Electric Car presents the recent resurgence of electric vehicles as seen through the eyes of four pioneers of the EV revolution. Director Chris Paine (Who Killed the Electric Car? 2006) has had unprecedented access to the electric car research and development programs at General Motors, Nissan, and Tesla Motors, while also following a part time electric car converter who refuses to wait for the international car makers to create the electric cars the public demands. As more models of electric cars than ever before start to arrive in showrooms and driveways across the world, Chris Paine's film offers an inspiring, entertaining and definitive account of this revolutionary moment in human transportation. Revenge of the Electric Car follows these auto makers as they race each other to create the first, best, and most publicly accepted electric cars for the new car market. Written by
Even (and much) better than "Who Killed the Electric Car"?
I feel this movie deserves a fair rating of 10. On this particular topic, maybe a decade from now, maybe even less than that, people are going to look at petroleum-based cars and ask "why?". It is not a debate on whether electric cars work, we should be asking ourselves, why it took so long for us to finally have them. I am baffled by reviews that say this is conspiracy, unrealistic - well 100% electric cars are here, as a matter of fact, they were here before the petroleum- based cars, just do some research or like I did, go to Edison and Hord Winter Estates in Fort Myers, FL.
This is not why IMHO a 10 is not an extreme for this particular movie, it gives the viewers so much reality, on how difficult it is to pursue one's passion and life-long dream, how much stress, humiliation, and hardship they have to go through to overcome a world that resists changes for whatever reasons(stubbornness, money, or sometimes just not being well-informed), to succeed and influence. It opens up so much more for us to question(who's there to conspire for one), to learn and to make better, well-informed decisions when it comes to our own actions.
