    The first time I saw this film I didn't appreciate it for the genius that it is. It is visually stunning, the score is haunting. The whole concept of the story is not only original, it is also extremely well evacuated. The suspense of the film builds and builds till the final act when the fear of the whole situation becomes almost overwhelming. I don't like to use the term lightly but this film is a masterpiece.

    In a filmic sense the single-takes in this film are utterly breath-taking. The viewer doesn't realise they've seen them because they're used to short takes & CGI. Enthralling hard & brutal encapsulation of a post-apocalyptic reality.

    FILHOS DA ESPERANÇA é certamente um dos filmes mais impactantes dos últimos 20 anos. Impossível não bater palmas ao ver o brilhantismo das sequências no carro e sobretudo a do resgate no prédio (destaque para a pausa poética que o próprio filme se permite fazer aqui) orquestradas por Alfonso Cuarón e Emmanuel Lubezki.

    (2027 tá chegando e as expectativas não são nada consoladoras)

    That last scene is probably the best scene in all of cinema.

    The first time I watched this was around 2007, and I hated it. I am glad to see my taste in film has evolved since then.

    A beautiful film in every sense of the word. Children of Men is insightful, creative, ambitious, mesmerizing, terrifying, and uplifting all at the same time. A remarkable achievement.

    this is one amazing movie. every aspect of this movie is great, but what I think is notablably exceptional is the filming. some of the greatest, most intense scenes in this movie were continuously shot which is something that's hard to get right. it's really rather incredible. I could write an essay on how fantastic this film is but instead, I'll just say this: if you haven't yet, watch it.

    Of the many movies I've seen over the years, few have stuck with me as much as Children of Men. Watching this again, I have to credit that feeling in part to Lubezki's camera work. It was something I wasn't as attuned to during my first viewing of this film, but this time I saw so many similarities in shot style with 2013's Gravity, another picture directed by Cuaron. The long takes in the action sequences pick you up and…

    Sem falar nos demais recursos e desempenhos técnicos, somente a combinação entre a fotografia e o argumento do enredo já justificam a excelência do filme.
