Cuaron fulfills the promise of futuristic fiction; characters do not wear strange costumes or visit the moon, and the cities are not plastic hallucinations, but look just like today, except tired and shabby.

It does the job, it does it well, and the fact that it's being called a masterpiece for doing so speaks unwell of the current state of movies.

The very soul of the film scoffs at the expectation of being conventional or formulaic.

As uncertain and spontaneous as its events are in the moment, Children of Men feels too tightly wound for its own good.

he only thing that strikes a false note here is...the final sequence (and a sound heard over the closing credits)... Otherwise a perfect film.

What makes CHILDREN OF MEN so exciting and such a wonder is Cuarón's strong direction and the expert cinematography of Emmanuel Luzbecki.

An apocalyptic thrill ride that is as gritty as it is gripping, with a dark terror outgunned only by its daring humanity.

Children of Men feels more relevant than almost every film set in the present day and is better than almost every other film made this year.

Un brillante relato cinematográfico ejecutado con maestría, pero sobre todo una sombría visión del futuro que es en realidad una inquietante metáfora del mundo de hoy.

Why this film didn't receive Oscar recognition for Best Picture, tells you more about the Academy's shortcomings than this picture's.

A thought-provoking glimpse into a desperate future where infertility has spawned violence. This compelling narrative redfines the post-apocalyptic genre.

You feel as if you're accompanying a war photographer who's lost a bet. Slogging unflinchingly through humanity's worst hours, the movie laces the narrative's forays into science-fiction grandstanding with a gut-wrenching dynamic.
| Original Score: 4/5

I have to confess that at times I was so flabbergasted by the incredible camerawork and long shots, I forgot to listen to the story. I loved it.
