What I find particularly irksome about it is its pseudo-humanism and its calculating political correctness.

Alfonso Cuarón's futuristic adventure derives its power from a premise as potent and primal as they come

... A work of science fiction that bears a disturbing resemblance to the facts of today.

Reel Times: Reflections on Cinema

Invigorating in its ideas and style, Children of Men conceives a dystopian future, but its questions are just as relevant to our modern lives.

There's nothing like a doomsday movie to start off the new year, I always say.

It's a hell of a setup, and for the most part Cuaron and company deliver on that promise.

Cuaron manages to pack a lot of incident into this exciting tale.

Call it dystopian or future shocking, but Children of Men is nothing more than a sensational cinematic allegory as bona fide art.

Coast (Halifax, Nova Scotia)

A speculative "what if?" take on human nature taunts Children of Men with the pretense of great science fiction.

... this ugly world of racism, violence and homeland security gone mad is a more likely futuristic scenario than a world in which shared humanity and peace reign supreme.

Children of Men is depressing as hell, but it's also a helluva good movie. 28 Days Later meets V for Vendetta with, thankfully, more in common with the former.

The director and I agree on the future. Though mine doesn't have a hopeful ending.

It's simply must-see filmmaking all the way around -- as art, as entertainment, as social commentary.

Yes, kids, Children of Men is one of those bleakly futuristic "In a World" movies, a genre that's constantly reproducing itself in the semi-infantile world of adult movies.

There are no more children left in the world! A world where Pixar gives up movies for CG-animated Select Comfort Sleep-Number Bed commercials.

This is a film that had a great deal potential, but got too involved in its action scenes.

Cuaron and company do a splendid job of putting the viewer smack dab in the center of the action.
