technically, this movie is stunning, but it's just a standard entertaining dystopia movie with political messages that are as banal as they are Applicable To The Current Era. any flashes of nuance or intelligence are dulled as soon as they appear. it's not a bad movie by any means, but the excessive praise it gets baffles me
The almost religious scene of an infant being carried through the destroyed town of immigrants with surprised onlookers who were cutting each other's throats just a moment ago still remains an iconic scene, showcasing not only the aesthetic but also the social side of reality explored by this great film.
Excellent premise about a world where births don't happen any longer created by crime writer, P.D. James. Superb acting, editing and direction. The atmosphere and the comments about illegal immigration is even more powerful and up to date now. One of the new millennium's most powerful science fiction movies that feels even nearer to science fact now only 10 years later.
