Customer Product Reviews

Rated 4 out of 5★ by 1reviewer.
Rated 4 out of 5★ by A front seat view of history in the making! Very well-made, engaging story-line that doesn't take too many liberties with the Truth of what took place. Fair, balanced coverage of the four subjects. The movie doesn't take sides, except to offer cautious hope for us All-- that the fossil-fuel grip on our automotive lives is not a permanent disability. 03/12/2013
