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... (read more)

Clive Owen stars in an apocalyptic future vision of Britain and steals the film. He is understated at all times, tender, sensitive, afraid, and always sincere and utterly humane. However he behaves, he is absolutely believable and, when he laughs, it feels as though we are watching Clive himself, with great warmth and humour evident, and not acting at all.

I saw the Children of Men film with a friend. The film has a bomb being set off within the first 5 minutes. My friend started counting down from five when Theodore (Clive Owen) placed his coffee down outside. The camera started circling round him and I realised a bomb was... (read more)

Children of Men is a pretty good film and in general quite different to the average film you will see at the cinema. Set in 2027 the film presents a fairly bleak picture of the future, with London subjected to daily terrorist attacks, immigrants locked up in cages ready to be sent back to their homelands and most importantly the infertility of women that has sent the world into a depression.
The film begins with the international community in mourning after the death of the worlds youngest... (read more)
