Movie Review: Children of Men

Empty Swingset

Children of Men is dark, harsh and gruesome, yet real and honest like no other movie I have seen before. The tag line for the movie summarizes the movie quite well: “In 20 years women are infertile. No children. No future. No hope. But all can change in a heartbeat.”    

The thing I liked best about it (other than being so powerful) was the resonance it had with the Nativity story -not the movie, the actual story of Jesus’ birth. When he came into our world, everyone who saw him had their breath taken away. Peace came in form of a baby.  

Rated: R               Not for children.              My Rating: 5/5
