I tried to watch it once; I lost interest when the pregnant black female appeared, and turned it off. I had always wondered that, but never looked into it.
This travesty completely changes the arc of the story and the symbolism of the pregnancy. Many of the illegal immigrants detained held in small, crowded cages, like animals… get it?
I read it as something of an insurgency-coalition formed between radical Muslims and the radical Leftists. Thoroughly paranoid in their conspiracy-theorizing, they blame coffee shop bombings not on Muslims or Leftists but on the government.
The sequence with the trigger-happy, dreadlocked wigger is particularly terrifying. From a purely technical point of view, Children of Men contains some brilliantly choreographed, single-shot sequences, the most famous being a six-minute-plus scene in which the protagonist Theo is first captured by The Fishes, narrowly escapes their clutches, only to flee to an even more dangerous situation involving government tanks and artillery.
It is a most impressive sequence and had to have been a nail-biter for the Director and all involved. The requisite level of religious fervor on the Left certainly exists, as does other religious trappings.
Similarly, while BLM has inspired some targeted killings, we are today experiencing nothing like the urban riots of the late s Watts; Newark; etc.
I viewed the film years ago. It is worth watching regardless of your political views. But Trevor, you bring up some interesting ideas in your review.
Which leads me to ask this question of you and your fellow racial realists; If the White race were to go extinct, would you prefer that humanity in another form, be it Black, Asian, etc.
Tim Robey. If you thought the battle scenes in Saving Private Ryan were tough going, the final 20 minutes of Children of Men will not only shake you, they'll have you revising your expectations about just how realistic cinematic portrayals of combat can get.
Jim Schembri. As always, Michael Caine manages to steal every scene he's in with effortless, offbeat comedic charm. Mike Massie.
Cuaron was able to infuse every moment with the importance of what is at stake. Allen Almachar. Children of Men is concentrated cinema, wrought, focused, emblematic Ray Pride.
This is one movie that will have a lasting impact even if you are forced to watch it on a ten-inch black and white Zenith.
Kathi Maio. A rare kind of film -- thought-provoking, but full of intense action scenes. Micheal Compton. The final 25 minutes is truly filmmaking at its absolute best.

It took fourteen days to prepare for the single shot in which Clive Owen's character searches a building under attack, and five hours for every time they wanted to reshoot it.
In the middle of one shot, blood splattered onto the lens, and cinematographer Emmanuel Lubezki convinced the director to leave it in. According to Owen, "Right in the thick of it are me and the camera operator because we're doing this very complicated, very specific dance which, when we come to shoot, we have to make feel completely random.
Lubezki refused to allow it, reminding the director that they had intended to make a film akin to a "raw documentary ". A crew of four, including the director of photography and camera operator, rode on the roof.
However, the commonly reported statement that the action scenes are continuous shots  is not entirely true.
Visual effects supervisor Frazer Churchill explains that the effects team had to "combine several takes to create impossibly long shots", where their job was to "create the illusion of a continuous camera move".
Once the team was able to create a "seamless blend", they would move on to the next shot. These techniques were important for three continuous shots: the coffee shop explosion in the opening shot, the car ambush, and the battlefield scene.
The coffee shop scene was composed of "two different takes shot over two consecutive days"; the car ambush was shot in "six sections and at four different locations over one week and required five seamless digital transitions"; and the battlefield scene "was captured in five separate takes over two locations".
Churchill and the Double Negative team created over of these types of effects for the film. The important thing is how you blend everything and how you keep the perception of a fluid choreography through all of these different pieces.
Tim Webber of VFX house Framestore CFC was responsible for the three-and-a-half-minute single take of Kee giving birth, helping to choreograph and create the CG effects of the childbirth.
In the end, two takes were shot, with the second take concealing Clare-Hope Ashitey's legs, replacing them with prosthetic legs.
Amongst a genre-spanning selection of electronic music , a remix of Aphex Twin 's "Omgyjya Switch 7", which includes the 'Male Thijs Loud Scream' audio sample by Thanvannispen,  not present on the original nor indeed on the official soundtrack can be heard during the scene in Jasper's house, where Jasper's "Strawberry Cough" a potent, strawberry-flavoured strain of marijuana is being sampled.
During a conversation between the two men, Radiohead 's " Life in a Glasshouse " plays in the background. For the Bexhill scenes during the film's second half, the director makes use of silence and cacophonous sound effects such as the firing of automatic weapons and loudspeakers directing the movement of "fugees" slang in the film's timeline for refugee.
A few times during the film, a loud, ringing tone evocative of tinnitus is heard. This sound generally coincides with the death of a major character Julian, Jasper and is referred to by Julian herself, who describes the tones as the last time you'll ever hear that frequency.
In this way, then, the loss of the tones is symbolic of the loss of the characters. Children of Men had its world premiere at the 63rd Venice International Film Festival on 3 September The site's critical consensus states: " Children of Men works on every level: as a violent chase thriller, a fantastical cautionary tale, and a sophisticated human drama about societies struggling to live.
Stevens hailed the film's extended car chase and battle scenes as "two of the most virtuoso single-shot chase sequences I've ever seen".
Club , the San Francisco Chronicle , Slate , and The Washington Post placed the film at number one. Peter Travers of Rolling Stone ranked it number two on his list of best films of the decade, writing:.
James' futuristic political-fable novel was good when it opened in After repeated viewings, I know Children of Men is indisputably great No movie this decade was more redolent of sorrowful beauty and exhilarating action.
You don't just watch the car ambush scene pure camera wizardry —you live inside it. According to Metacritic's analysis of the most often and notably noted films on the best-of-the-decade lists, Children of Men is considered the 11th greatest film of the s.
In the wake of the European migrant crisis of , the British withdrawal from the European Union of the late s, the election of Donald Trump in , and the COVID pandemic of , all of which involved divisive debates about immigration and increasing border enforcement, several commentators reappraised the film's importance, with some calling it "prescient".
The film appeared on many critics' top 10 lists as one of the best films of : . James was reported to be pleased with the film,  and the screenwriters of Children of Men were awarded the 19th annual USC Scripter Award for the screen adaptation of the novel.
Rodman , chair of the USC School of Cinematic Arts Writing Division, described the book-to-screen adaptation as "writing and screen writing of the highest order", although Gerschatt, writing in Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung , noted that the screenplay bore very little resemblance to the novel: The gender of the baby was changed to female , as was the character who was pregnant Julian, in the novel ; Theo, who appears to die in the film, does not die in the novel.
The HD-DVD and DVD were released in Europe on 15 January  and in the United States on 27 March Deleted scenes are included.

You don't know where to stand, because she is going to make fun of you. We're putting the future of humanity in the hands of the dispossessed and creating a new humanity to spring out of that.
Michael loved it. He believed he was this guy". Visit our Black History Month section. London, In this dystopian world, humans have been incapable of reproducing for eighteen years for an unknown reason, meaning the imminent extinction of the species.
Britain is the one remaining civilized society on the planet, which has resulted in people wanting to immigrate there. As such, it has become a police state in order to handle the immigrants, who are placed into refugee camps.
Lowly government bureaucrat Theo Faron, once an activist, is approached by the Fishes, deemed a terrorist group, led by his ex-wife Julian Taylor, who he has not seen in close to twenty years, their marriage which disintegrated following the death of their infant son Dylan during the flu pandemic.
Although the Fishes did use terrorist means in their on-going revolution against the state in the fight for immigrant rights, Julian vows that they now garner support solely by speaking to the people.
What she wants is for Theo to use his connections to get transit papers for a young immigrant Written by Huggo.
It's an improbable cross between "Brazil" "a clockwork orange" and the video game HALF-LIFE2 from which it borrows it's final sequences and use of on shot action-sequences it manages to be both entertaining in the Hollywood way with incredible action sequences and a very clever way of using digital effects yet very sad and different with a very very dark and realistic overtone.
No comic relief, no cartoon character bravery, only human behavior in it's best and most horrible way. This realistic overtone makes the main characters very engaging and moving.
CLive owen whose i have always disliked is excellent as the man drowned into an adventure too big for him sorry for my bad English It's the same kind of film than V for vendetta both taking place in a futuristic fascist British society different from the usual mainstrean studio teenager pleaser crap GO see it!
