Storyline

The world is facing some huge problems. There's a lot of talk about how to solve them. But talk doesn't reduce pollution, or grow food, or heal the sick. That takes doing. This film is the story about a group of doers, the elegantly simple inventions they have made to change the lives of billions of people, and the unconventional billionaire spearheading the project.

Well made but ultimately just a PR piece for a billionaire
18 March 2016 | by blutac2See all my reviews

I enjoyed it, and it definitely raised some interesting areas, but I think it ultimately had little substance. To me it was a puff piece for a man who is doing some interesting things, not a documentary.

The film introduced complex issues and pretended that (1) they are simple) and (2) that are not being dealt with because no one else is as entrepreneurial/ visionary/ etc. as the leader of this company (who also commissioned and starred in this documentary!).

The huge claims and lack of any attempt at exploring potential barriers made me suspicious of all the science/ engineering discussed. I think this might be backed up by me not finding much online about these technologies.

Man invented energy drink, got rich, started trying to change the world. Nice story, but lets get real about the chances that he then goes on to revolutionise energy production, water and healthcare (all the while curing poverty). Lets also remember that this was to a large degree an ADVERT for his company.
