Children of Men

Last night, we watched a rather interesting movie called Children of Men. The film is based in 2027, when women have been mysteriously sterile for 18 years. The film follows a former activist (Clive Owen) is asked by an “old friend” to help transport a miraculously pregnant woman across the country and to a hidden sanctuary run by “The Human Project”.

Like I said, the film really was rather interesting. The story was captivating, and moved along at just about the perfect pace. The characters were well developed and believable – and not too many for me to keep track of (I hate it when films do that!). Possibly my favourite part of the film though, was the visuals – the scene towards the end when the baby is being shuffled through a war-zone is really quite amazing.

Highly recommended for a great night in – especially when it’s zero degrees outside! rating: 8.5/10.
