Movie Review: Who Killed the Electric Car? (2006)

Starring: Martin Sheen, Peter Horton
Director: Chris Paine
Genre: Documentary
Rating: PG

Chris Paine, a former EV1 (Electric Vehicle) driver seeks out the truth behind the demise of the electric car. Who's to blame? Is it the oil companies, the car makers, the U.S. government or the consumer? This documentary gets into the heart of all of these culprits and gives a verdict for each.

Who Killed the Electric Car? is a very eye opening and well-made movie about decisions that can go on behind the scenes that affect us all. You'll probably end up mad after seeing the advantages of an electric car and what they do to them. You may want an electric car after watching this, but oops you can't. Celebrities who drove the EV1 are among those interviewed for good measure.

Overall a good documentary that makes you think, which is what a documentary is supposed to do. We shall see what the future hold for the electric car. This movie will increase your awareness of what the electric car can do.
