Good acting, on a bad day you may think this could be a scarily accurate prediction of a future Britain.
Violent, grim, on a bad day you may think this could be a scarily accurate prediction of a future Britain!! Not a film to lift the spirits...
Children of Men is yet another post-apocalyptic film set in a bad future. Wonder if anyone has made a film about the future where everything is nice and peaceful and there is no repressive evil government... mind you if they did it would probably be a bit rubbish and dull!
This is mainly an action film of sorts and quite violent. My wife didn't like it at all and wondered why anyone would watch it, so certainly not a date movie! The general plot line is that the world is now infertile and Clive Owen ends up having to protect a miraculously pregnant woman... so we have a running scared film with lots of shooting in it.
It's not a high budget film (think they made advantage of some run-down areas very well!) but it doesn't need to be. Be warned, you may watch this and think - hmmm, the future's grim.
