    Amazing in terms of filmmaking. If I was rating it for that alone, it would easily get 5 stars. It's brilliantly shot and looks wonderful, but the story isn't compelling enough in my opinion. It seems too much like they're getting from A to B and they don't encounter enough to make it very exciting or for their path to be significantly changed.

    I stand by my first review of this film where I stated that it's not explained well enough. Maybe it's not supposed to be, but I would have appreciated a bit more information on various things.

    Although highly regarded by many I'm still not convinced it is appreciated as much as it should be. For me this is one of the finest science fiction films of all time, perhaps not as influential as Metropolis, Blade Runner et al but every bit as brilliant.

    It manages to achieve what many sci-fi films do not, it manages to not only deliver a unique dystopic concept but also deliver a rich and moving emotional journey too. Too often genre…

    Children of Men was a film I'd put off for a long time. I knew that it was an important film, and I always wanted to be in just the right time and place to see it, and I'm so glad I finally got to because it just might be the best science fiction film I've ever seen. The world that Alfonso Cuaron has created is so rich and complex, it has just as much life as any of the…

    In 2027, in a chaotic world in which women have become somehow infertile, a former activist agrees to help transport a miraculously pregnant woman to a sanctuary at sea. - IMDB

    There is simply not too much wrong with this movie for me at all. It's a perfect meld of different kind of genre's that I love in a movie. The action/sci-fi/drama/thriller aspect is amazing. I was already a fan of Alfonso Cuarón from Y tu mamá también, then came…

    Never been a fan of post-apocalyptic flicks. But this, is different. Wherever they shot those pictures was, it looked pretty fucked up there. Many scenes represent 'you didn't see it coming'.

    Finally, today I saw Children of Men, which I had just seen once. Now, the first time I saw it, I thought it was an OK film, but I was left completely unimpressed by it (with the exception of the continuous shots which I thought were impressive indeed). However, I put it in today and boy, the wonders that a second viewing did. My appreciation of the film changed a lot. It certainly felt like a different film for me.…

    'Very odd, what happens in a world without children's voices.'

    The presentation of a dystopian world is a venture often littered with clichés and tired tropes. Cuaron's vision is both eerily close to home and inventive enough to avoid falling into over-exploited territory, and provides an atmospheric backdrop to the plot itself. It is a relatively simple plot, but, when strewn with symbolism and presented through with some virtuoso camera work, it becomes a more compelling and entertaining watch.

    Children of Men is brutal.

    Perhaps most impressive about this film is the numerous continuous shots for which its director, Alfonso Cuarón, is famous. I didn't think I could be more impressed by camerawork than I was in Gravity, but Children of Men is even better. Theo and Kee's escape from Luke's camp, the childbirth scene, several of the apartment war scenes - all several minutes in length and beautifully uncut.

    Can't say much more. This movie is brilliant.
