Dan O'Neill90 - Children of Men may be a bit too dark and depressing for some viewers, but the future that director Alfonso Cuarón portrays is a dark, sad, and lonely time that he beautifully creates with great camera-work, compelling themes that add an extra layer to the story, and a couple of good performances from the cast, especially Clive Owen who has almost never been better.

Jester Smiles80 - Really underrated film. I was surprised it got no Oscar love for the year it was in.

Drezzy75 - A damn decent modern take on the post-apocalyptic genre, and a stunningly realistic one at that (were the premise to happen).
