    I like to imagine that Michael Caine was just playing himself in this movie.

    What an experience! Cuaron's "Children Of Men" really gets you in the mood of re-thinking the whole mess our society is and works as a good wake-up call from our ignorance and apathy. It showcases a horrifying 2027 where people are infertile and old... and then a baby arrives and suddenly there's hope!

    Just watched this with two of my pseudo-brothers. Didn't have quite the reaction I was hoping for, though they were somewhat impressed by the long shot through the 'battlegrounds' near the end.
    I just have to say... I cannot get enough of 'Freda People'. Brilliantly used at the end.

    Well, after so many years and so much word-of-mouth, I have finally seen Alfonso Cuaron's cult hit "Children of Men." I'm really surprised it took me this long to see it, though I may have never seen it if it wasn't so highly recommended from a particular friend of mine. After my experience, I've concluded that this is Cuaron's definitive masterpiece. I thought he couldn't have possibly gotten any better with his technical marvel, Gravity, and yet here I am,…

    Technically and visually, 'Children of Men', is a perfect sci-fi dystopia. Really. I haven't seen such a great camera work in a long time. No idea, why this wasn't awarded with an Oscar. The cinematography of this whole movie is just perfect. And I love the look of this film. I've seen many sci-fi thrillers like this one here, but this special apocalyptic mood was never visualized that great. Just perfect.

    The acting is also really great, Clive Owen is…

    Characters are all kept a bit shallow, but nice subject.

    Could be the ending of the series 'Utopia'

    Profoundly moving, affecting, amazing film, with some of the brilliant long, single-take scenes you'll ever see. The dystopian future depicted herein, central premise aside maybe, looks closer and closer to becoming a reality in which we may one day live, and is one of the most realistic I've ever seen on film.

    Still as powerful as the first time I saw it, and sadly, more relevant..
