4.0 out of 5 stars why?, 8 Aug. 2007
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Children of Men [DVD] [2006] (DVD)
Watch this film and make your own decision, you may be surprised. Why do I find this film so compelling and thought provoking? I was somewhat disappointed when I first saw it in the cinema as I think all who read the book first or believed the hype circulating in the press when it was first released could so easily be.
This is not a Hollywood blockbuster, all action film, but serves to tell a simple story, which has been told before. How do you control society when the basic drives are gone. What hope is there when there is no future? The plot line although not 'A1' is more original than most. Some good twists and I did not think it as predictable or unbelievable as some previous reviewers.
There seems to be some strange ideas linked to reviews of this film, for example the idea of this film sponsoring inappropriate procreation, I dont know where that came from? Why can't disaster be in the near future as well as our near past? Some things in life are predictable and some people are 'slower' than others and need to have things spelt out a bit more. There is nothing wrong with this, it is called tolerance and appealing to the wider audience rather than elitism.
Watch this, I think you may be pleasantly surprised.
