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
I wanted to see this documentary because I consider electric engines to be the future of the automotive industry, judging by the data that we now have. I have not seen the apparent prequel to this documentary, "Who killed the electric car?".
I regularly refer to IMDb as an indication of whether I may like a movie or not, and was not expecting much from a movie with a 5.8 score. As soon as the movie started, I was surprised that it looked like a well-made, high production value documentary with substance and actual behind-the-scenes footage of the industry. It has many interviews with Elon Musk and Bob Lutz from GM made for the film and covers the subject matter from multiple approaches.
It is a very enjoyable and informative documentary that actually made me feel good about the future.
