MovieMail's Review

Based on the novel by PD James, Children of Men is a dystopian tale of near-future Britain - a world where mankind is infertile and the youngest living person died this morning. However this isn't an examination of morality in a society doomed to certain extinction within a few decades time. No, it's a thriller - the richest one in years.
The adaptation itself is intriguing - they've taken the concept and, together with excellent design and cinematography, created a compelling, hauntingly believable world. The plot on the other hand has been heavily reconstructed into a veritable thrill-ride – in the midst of a totalitarian government and terrorists, Clive Owen must escort a precious, fragile prize – the first pregnant women in nearly thirty years - to a rendezvous with a science ship off the coast of Britain. Despite the calibre of the performances, it's the filmmaking craft that's the star of the show here - action films simply don't often get this level of attention or skill. So – thrilling, thought-provoking and impeccably well made - what more could you want?

Film Description

A hugely impressive sci-fi drama from Mexican director Cuaron. Set in London, 2027, in a world where humans can no longer procreate, a pregnant woman is discovered. She must be transported to a sanctuary at sea in order to save the human race, as terrorists and government alike wish to exploit her for their own ends. The action scenes are terrific, and the film took home two awards at the Venice Film Festival.
