This is a brilliant film but when I first watch this movie I was not a fan but I watched the movie again and I don't know what I was smoking.

Infertility is a interesting and fresh way to go with an end of civilization movie. Until I saw this I never really considered the thought of the human race becoming infertile. The take the idea and make it into a really good movie. With good acting and great special effects. Definitely a seat-gripping movie. I could watch this a couple more times and thoroughly enjoy it.

The best element of Children of Men is the attention to detail that has gone a long way in creating an intense vision of an apocalyptic future. The cinematography and set design are brilliant and really immerse the viewer into the science fiction universe that the high-concept premise creates. The story itself drags at times, which keeps the film from being a 4-star masterpiece, but the actors are committed to their roles and all the cinematic elements pull together to create a generally engrossing and exciting sci-fi thriller.

Unexpected masterpiece.

This is not only (possibly) the best dystopian future movie I've ever seen, but it's also one of the most underrated I've ever seen.

Considering this movie landed tons of Top 10 lists of critics in 2006, I should not call it underrated. More overlooked over time.
Alfonso Cuarón is a very dark-toned director with a simple style that I really like. I loved his take on Harry Potter.
The camerawork in this movie is amazing, often are many of them just one shot. That is exactly what I like. No jump-cuts and quick edits. Just letting it roll solidly. A shot in this movie lasts a whole 4 minutes.
This is Clive Owen's best performance (at least his best that I've seen). His character is not only fleshed out well, he is given purpose. He is given emotions and sacrifice.
Julianne Moore and M...

"Children Of Men" by Yojimbo

Children Of Men presents a vision of the near future in which the human race has been sterile for 18 years and chaos rules the streets. Terrorist factions war with a fascist state which hunts down immigrants and herds them like cattle into pens and detention slums for deportation. And it's all 100% convincing. The direction and cinematography of this film is breathtaking; you really feel that you are there, suffering with the characters in a world that's degenerated into Hell. Clive Owen's performance is superb as the camera rarely leaves him, his character being the sole focus of the story as he finally finds something to believe in again. On first viewing, I must admit that I found the ending unsatisfactory which marred my enjoyment of the film, but on a rewatch I concentrated on the jo...

Children of Men review

The setting is 2027 in London where no child has been born for 18 years and Britain a military state for detained immigrants. Theo Faron (Clive Owen) has been involved with an activist group known as “Fishes” led by his wife Julian Taylor (Julian Moore). She asks for a favor to bring a female refugee named Kee (Clare-Hope Ashitey). Luke (Chiwetel Ejiofor) has plans for the baby and alters the plan of Julian which involves taking her life. Miriam (Pam Ferris) is a religious midwife who accompanies Kee and is befriended by Theo. Theo’s hippie blithe friend Jasper Palmer (Michael Caine) helps in saving Kee and guiding them to the Tomorrow boat that would lead to the Human Project. Theo and Kee encounter a myriad of dangerous obstacles which involve Luke, Syd and the “uprising.” Miri...
