The world as we know it is beginning to look dangerously close to the one depicted here; but with its backdrop of militant-based terrorism, civil disobedience, refugee crisis & general post-millennial tension, the film always did have its finger squarely on the pulse. Children of Men now looks like the masterpiece it always was; bold, prescient, intelligent & profoundly moving; a perfect combination of content& form.
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.
