This movie leaves out so much of the story between Edison and Westinghouse. If you enjoyed this movie, try the non-fiction movie "Westinghouse". The library has it. Much more thorough journey into the rivalry for AC/DC current.

IMDB rated 6.5/10

Thomas Edison and George Westinghouse -- the greatest inventors of the industrial age -- engage in a battle of technology and ideas that will determine whose electrical system will power the new century. Backed by J.P. Morgan, Edison dazzles the world by lighting Manhattan. But Westinghouse, aided by Nikola Tesla, sees fatal flaws in Edison's direct current design. Westinghouse and Tesla bet everything on risky and dangerous alternating current.

Great movie! I highly recommend for the historical value, very educational. This was very interesting and there are things I didn't know about Edison.
This movie is for anyone over the age of 12.

A nice historical drama. The story of the selection of a/c-d/c current for the country. It is an educational story of how a major part of the American infrastructure came to exist. At the same time get a glimpse of some of the main characters, i.e. Edison, Westinghouse & Tesla. Worth a watch
