        Another movie that can never get enough praise, It works on so many levels and has something for most people, It's very violent, Very realistic, Very moving, Brilliantly acted by a strong cast, The camera work was incredible, With some fantastic single shot scenes and a fantastic ending, If you don't like this movie then I'm afraid you don't know what true cinema is.

        If you are a fan of filmmaking and world-building sci-fi then Children of Men is a must-see for the production values (reminiscent of Brazil in that respect). It looks like a lot of work went into the sets and there are so many extras; it is quite a spectacular, cinematic experience.

        A modern masterpiece worthy of anyone's attention for a strikingly long list of reasons. The thumbnail for the trailer alone alludes to Clive Owen's incredible performance. Some minor flaws and debatable design choices do not hamper what I would consider to be a must watch. It is almost criminal the film lost so much money at the box office.

        Every aspect of this film would at least be good. The story was interesting, the execution was great, the acting was utterly convincing. Adding up all the good parts, as in considering it from one aspect to another, makes this a good film, but seeing it as a whole, as in looking at it as one complete artwork and not dividing it into its parts, makes it even better.
