The average person will chew on the ideas of this movie over a couple of beers with friends - but how many will act on it?

I can't speak for 'the average person', but given the closeness of recent elections, if a relatively small percentage of the people that have seen the movie go out and vote on election day because of it, I'd say that they could have a demonstrable effect.

While you and I may choose to keep ourselves informed on matters of the day and the implications of the stories on the nightly news, I do think that presenting these sorts of issues in a popular, action-packed, easily digestible Hollywood film will reach millions of habitually apathetic citizens and perhaps inspire them to take a greater interest in what's going on.
