Storyline

The 'Hurt Locker' meets 'An Inconvenient Truth', THE AGE OF CONSEQUENCES is the Emmy® nominated investigation on how climate change impacts increased resource scarcity, migration and conflict through the lens of US national security and global stability. Through unflinching case-study analysis, distinguished admirals, generals and military veterans take us beyond the headlines of the conflict in Syria, the social unrest of the Arab Spring, the rise of radicalized groups like ISIS, border walls and the European refugee crisis - laying bare how climate change interacts with other socio-political factors to exacerbate societal tensions and spark conflict.

Disappointed
1 May 2016 | by tenrallySee all my reviews

I went for the premiere screening at HotDocs festival in Toronto. I loved the beautiful aerial shots of nature and industrialized areas, and cool computer animation sequences connecting visual pieces together. Everything else.. oh, well, the movie felt like a US military propaganda, in which US is declaring a "war on climate change". Limited, one-sided information, presented in a way that was more aimed at instilling fear than explaining the real causes of climate change and empowering the average citizen. Immigration crisis in Europe and Middle East got also superficial treatment - shocking, dramatic pictures, accompanied by one sided opinions favoring US politics (At the same time immigration issues at the US south border were not even mentioned). I understand time constraints of 80 minutes format, but that is not enough of an excuse for presenting this kind of limited perspective... In this extreme situation glorified US govt and US army are entitled to take whatever measures necessary to provide the global stability - all too familiar. There are better documentaries on the topic.
