Movie Description:
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.

    Only few big cats have been as intensively studied as lions. We thought we knew everything about them. Yet some parts of their lives kept hidden in the dark. Cameras follow two prides and their respective females by day and by night, revealing astonishing behavioral patterns of Africa's largest lions. Symbols of courage and power, lions have been intensively researched for many decades. While hardly a single facet of their lives has gone unnoticed, certain things have remained hidden. Thanks to thermal imaging cameras, this two-part series reveals the last secrets of Africa's largest wild cats. We follow two prides in Southern Kenya and their respective females by day and by night, discovering astonishing behavioral patterns. Lean times face the animals as the huge wildebeest herds, which, until now have supplied the young families with ample food, are migrating south to the Serengeti. We will watch the daily struggle for survival as these mothers risk everything in order to rear their young. Protecting their youngsters from threats such as pythons, African buffalo, and elephants. However, it is the other lions that are the greatest threat. We will observe as the fate of the young lions is decided during the next few weeks and when a group of young male lions arrives with ambitions of wresting the territory from its current rulers, the situation escalates in this dramatic family saga.

A Lame Blame

This misrepresentation was aimed at the gullible and easily led. The climate does play a hand at creating famine, natural disasters, etc., which in turn can cause civil unrest and mass migration; but to put all ones eggs in the terror basket as the sole cause of the numerous pockets of global misery......is a real stretch......that even Elastic Man would have difficulty attempting.This documentary is more of a promo presentation for the American military with transparent attempts at declaring that they alone can combat this global menace.I gave it a 3 points on the quality of the cinematography. I deducted 7 marks for its outlandish foolishness and overt stupidity.

Beautifuly shot yet flawed

First and formost, this movie looks great!There are many drone shot scenes, well set-up interview environments, great shots and clips from the ground and fantastic computer generated simulations. It does add upp to a nice to see documentary. Add an important topic to it such as climate change and its impact on geopolitics, while also pointing out the important fact that climate change is only part of chaos at hand. and it seems difficult to fail, right? Yet it does feel lackluckster. While pointing out the threat of chinese global expansion along with a view other countries it never dares to talk critically about its own, the USA. This slowly meanders into the movie feeling oddly xenophobic, and sadly so. I really liked many parts of this documentary, but i cant let myself fully enjoy what i was seeing as i had this nagging feeling that it also wanted me to feel better about all the US, despite all shortcomings it has on its own.

But is the sky REALLY falling?

Al Gore's "An Inconvenient Truth" begins with the assumption that man-made global warming is real, and proceeds to blame every flood, hurricane, endangered species, and other natural disaster on CO2 from the evil industrialized nations.Ten years later, "The Age of Consequences" picks up the narrative by blaming every political crisis in the world on the same dubious cause. Madeline Albright, Secretary of State in the Clinton-Gore administration, is billed as the star of the film. Other politicians and military personnel also contribute. Climatologists and meteorologists are notably absent.Those who are already terrified by global warming (oops-I mean climate change) may enjoy being further terrorized by this film. The continuous music track, reminiscent of the soundtrack of "Jaws" will help. But if you are looking to be informed, look elsewhere.
