“Children of Men is yet another post-apocalyptic film...”

Written on: 24/07/2007 by RobBuckland (31 reviews written)

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… Read Full Review

“Clive Owen stars in an apocalyptic future vision of...”

Written on: 12/04/2007 by Amanda Speedie (11 reviews written)

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. This is delightful because he was miscast in 'Arthur', when he appeared wooden and remote. Here he co-stars with Julianne Moore who puts in… Read Full Review

“I have not read the book, nevertheless I was quickly...”

Written on: 08/01/2007 by DELTAGOLF (39 reviews written)

I have not read the book, nevertheless I was quickly impressed and gripped by the film from the moment go. It portrays a bleak near-future in Britain, where the state is run by an 'Orwellesque' totalitarian and ruthless regime. There is a huge refugee problem and poverty is commonplace. More importantly, there is a world-wide infertility problem since children cannot be conceived any more. The basic plot-line involves the main hero (a disgruntled civil servant) trying to help a wanted… Read Full Review

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 going… Read Full Review

Mister Soft's Response to Quibbon101's Review

Written on: 14/11/2006

What I really liked about this film was the believability of the future - it was gritty and realistic which really helped me get into the film. I'm definitely planning on reading the book now but does anybody know how much the film differs from the book?

Deltagolf's Response to Quibbon101's Review

Written on: 08/01/2007

Responding to Mister Soft's query: I have not read the book, but saw the film recently. However, a friend of mine read it and said it is noticeably different in many ways. He also added that the book is far superior to the film script.

“Children of Men is a pretty good film and in general...”

Written on: 04/10/2006 by Hank (124 reviews written)

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 Full Review
