CHILDREN OF MEN (Theatrical Release USA 2006)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 3.9|5.0 Starsììì

Children of Men—
fresh, original, and creative—once again shows how the human being will continue to move forward to achieve worthwhile goals under the most distressing and impossible of circumstances. This may not be a heart-warming story, but it is a tale that inspires humans to take the difficult path and act with fortitude and loyalty despite extreme external challenges. Clive Owen, Michael Caine, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Danny Huston, Charlie Hunnam, and Julianne Moore make good presence in the movie. Interesting watch that particularly appeals to the dystopian future movie fan.
