    If you can't find this movie for some reason, just go for a walk in any major city.

    I really enjoyed it. It speaks on the human condition through powerful imagery & symbolism (the Nativity story). I also feel the future depicted is extremely plausible.

    Everyone was cast so well, especially Clive Owen. I felt he really embodied his character. Micheal Caine's performance was quite a treat as I have become too accustom to his elder butler-esk touch (probably cause I've mostly seen him in Nolan films).

    I held issue with who the antagonist where though. I felt like…

    Ever have those movies in which you always revisit them and something new about them pops right up into your head? For me, Alfonso Cuarón's "Children of Men" is one of those films. When I first saw the film, the rating which I would have applied to it would only be a mere 3.5/5 star rating here. But ever since I bought the Blu-Ray for myself on Black Friday, I have been coming back to the film with newer ideas…

    Well, it's a bit 'American' for me (yes, I know, it's not). The beautifulness of this movie is its futurist and, simultaneously, familiar atmosphere. And the constant pathos is palpable during all the movie, although it is not exaggerate at all. Whatch it!

    Review In A Nutshell:

    Alfonso Cuaron is beginning to become one of my favourite directors with three films so far that has showcased his masterful talents; Gravity, Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban, and Children of Men. So far, I believe that Children of Men is his most ambitious film in regards to its themes and messages, a world slowly destroying itself because of human nature has lost the ability to reproduce. A premise that is so original and…

    An unexpectedly bleak vision of the future that flips most other dystopian films on its head with gripping action and authentic high stakes consequences, but ultimately holds a solid emotional core that hits hard quite a few times throughout.

    Everything about this movie is excellent. Well acted, well directed, very well shot, and a great depiction of a society with a hopeless future. This film is simply great. 10/10
