An insane hodgepodge of pseudoscience and conspiracy theories
28 August 2012 | by Glencora PalliserSee all my reviews

Every time somebody gives this film a good review, a Science Teacher's soul dies a little bit.

It really doesn't take any more than a passing familiarity with High School level physics to understand that the theories being peddled here are insane.

The production values are impressive, and the presentation slick enough to just about take you in for a moment or two.

But ultimately the conspiracy theory outlined just doesn't make any sense at all: if there was a source of limitless free energy out there and aliens beaming us blueprints for it, big global companies would be hard at work figuring out ways to pitch it to us and to construct services around it they could make money from, if only because the first mover to defect from the conspiracy and market the product would stand to make a stratospheric amount of money. The movie holds that somehow, the conspiracy is perfect - and the possibility of making an almost unlimited amount of money isn't enough to get any energy company to break the cartel. This is idiotic.

And yet, the gullible watch...and talk it up...and the producers laugh all the way to the bank.
