Children of Men ★★★★★

Wow. From the opening scene, in which the near-apocalyptic future is set up in a disturbingly realistic way, right until the end credits, this film is one of those which keeps you glued to the screen all the way through.
Visually: it's stunning. Soundtrack-wise? Spot on. Cast? Perfect. Seriously, everything about this film feels right, nothing feels out of place, the plot is one of those which keeps you gripped until the last second.
Oh, and we get to hear Michael Caine say 'amigo'. Multiple times. That's got to be worth something, right?
