For all its dystopian, violent fury, "Children of Men's" grace distinguishes itself the most - an all-encompassing embrace of humanity, community and perseverance and an optimistic ending that doesn't feel at all like a cheat.

A major message to be taken from Children of Men is that the miracle of child birth cannot be taken for granted. At the end, though, it is felt that without hope, without faith, then what is there to live for?

Cuaron asks us to find hope in a grim nativity story where a reluctant hero and scared would-be mother try to find shelter in a land that desperately needs a newborn savior.

[Includes] the most exciting and emotionally exhausting car chase since The French Connection.

Fayetteville Free Weekly

Children of Men is a glorious mess. It's a Frankenstein monster of a movie. Part sci-fi, part thriller, part action genre, part religious allegory, it flays and lumbers after meaning-- sending off occasional sparks of style.

Children of Men succeeds as a downbeat dystopian thriller with some intriguing themes.

Sacramento News & Review

Cuarón delights in marshaling his showpieces, like the finer details of Jim Clay and Geoffrey Kirkland's just-futuristic-enough production design, or, especially, camera operator George Richmond's agile enactment of Emmanuel Lubezki's moody cinematography

I was entranced by this movie. Hypnotized. Spellbound. In a thrall. The final quarter of the film is nothing short of an evolutionary leap forward in filmmaking.

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.

There are enough ideas here that the film's never boring, and Mr. Cuarón's bravura direction is thrilling from start to finish.

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.
