      Audience Member I have never been so captivated by a film. Absolutely stunning and informative. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/22/23 Full Review Audience Member Director Rob Stewart's follow up to Shark Water has all the right intentions, but goes about them in the wrong way. Revolution doesn't tell us anything new about climate change and what we are doing to the planet, instead it tries to cover everything that has been scientifically proven on the topic. The result is a rambling, disjointed and slightly bewildering film. There is also a little bit too much of Stewart, who seems to be a bit too in love with himself. A large percentage of the footage is him wandering through crowds, which adds absolutely nothing to his overall call to action of the population. The overall message of the film is admirable however, as the focus is on how we can fix the planet, which is a nice change from the standard doom and gloom of most films that focus on climate change. Stewart is undeniably passionate about this cause and this does come off. The film also resonates extremely strongly with teenagers, who let's be honest, is who the film is aimed at. Stewart's goal is to educate and spur the younger generation into action and on the front he appears to succeed. So overall, the quality of the film is moot as it has clearly served its purpose. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/06/23 Full Review Audience Member A must see for everyone! Eye opener to what is going on in our world and what we can do to change it.

      Michael Rechtshaffen Los Angeles Times Stewart, who narrates, ultimately learns that advocacy begins at home. We, unfortunately, learn very little in this Earth Day release that we haven't seen before in more evolved, better focused documentaries. Apr 23, 2015 Full Review Ernest Hardy Village Voice Revolution is educational, but its shortcomings are glaring. Apr 22, 2015 Full Review Jeannette Catsoulis New York Times Trying to gather too much into his net, Mr. Stewart gets a little lost, but his bottom line could not be clearer: When the oceans die, so do we. Dec 5, 2013 Full Review Frank Lovece Film Journal International Accessible, understandable and beautifully shot eco-documentary that sounds a warning and backs up its claims, delighting and scaring us simultaneously. Apr 22, 2015 Full Review Louis Proyect The film demonstrates how a scientific understanding of global warming is an imperative to take action in order to save ourselves as well as the sea creatures the director loves so much. Apr 17, 2015 Full Review Katherine Monk As a piece of timely, well-researched propaganda, it does what it had to do, and forces the viewer to make a latex mould of one's own footprint and take responsibility for our own part in creating an over-trodden planet.
