Maybe the film with the greatest cinematography ever made. In addition to being a phenomenally well written, directed and acted dystopian social spectacle. A film that should be considered one of the best and will be more widely appreciated in the future.
An fantastic film that takes place in a alternative universe where Humans are no longer able to reproduce.Within the film we watch the main character, Theo, change throughout the film. He never honestly cared for the significance of the youngest person on the earth. But as he is introduced to Kee, his views begins to change and he does everything in his will to get Kee and her child to the Human Project. Amazing character development and progression through movie and an amazing action thriller.
I remembered this as being a fairly solid dystopian fantasy but actually it's a lot better than that. The attention to detail is brilliant and creates a very believable, and terrifying picture of a future Britain. It doesn't get bogged down in any political view and as a result is a simple to follow but deep film all at the same time. Owen has never been better as the everyday hero, really worth a revisit.
Children of Men has a very strong concept despite not giving any answers when it comes to it. It is a phenomenal chase thriller and a dystopian film that earns its bleakness and darkness as the atmosphere is so strong and the sense of despair and also hope is felt in almost every scene. It has a bunch of unforgettable sequences such as that wonderfully ambiguous ending and that highly memorable, perfectly executed car chase sequence. The performances are great, Cuaron's direction is superb and the film has memorable imagery leading to a highly competent sci-fi thriller.
This movie has many strengths such as the incredible cinematography (specifically the use of long takes), the amazing score, and numerous memorable and shocking scenes which linger with the viewer long after viewing it. I also liked how the baby contrasted the ugliness of the world with its innocence.
From the documentary style and wildly imaginative writing, you can feel the sickness and the depravity of the world, the constant war and danger, but the implications it hints at are sophisticated and relevant for the foreseeable future and has the most profound impact.
This very realistic and quite possibly prophetic drama featuring plenty of suspense, action and intelligent dialogue raises many important political and humanist related questions that are more relevant today then ever before.
