Movie review: Children of Men

Spoilers below

Just got back from a matinée showing…personally, I enjoyed it. I share Matt’s reservations about the trustworthiness of the vaguely explained “Human Project”, and, as has been noted in many places, why the human race can no longer reproduce is ever explained, but, aside from a few sections, the film moved along at a good pace and the extended single shot hand-cam action scene toward the movie’s end is fantastic (I especially like the reactions to the child by the soldiers). The dystopian England shown throughout the movie is convincing and the brutal and repressive imprisonment of illegal immigrants in the movie would probably make Tom Tancredo quite happy.
