Children of Men

Wow what a great film! Once again a totally believable scenario… that I’m surprised no-one has covered before in a film. This story about a barren (literally) human future 20yrs from now was so well paced and structured it never felt slow or predictable. I guess if I have to make a complaint I would have liked it to have a sad ending! I’ve never been a big Clive Owen fan until now but he played his part excellently, not too morose or hopeless and definitely no action hero. Even Michael Caine was great! The two stand out scenes were clearly the fantastic free wheel car chase and the tiny shot from a scene of torture in Abu Ghraib prison (oh, and I know my image for this posting isn’t *entirely* related, but it’s very evocative). Watch it!
