It's 2027 and the whole world is crap, basically, and Britain is the only decent place left, aside from a secret location where "The Human Project" takes place. No one has had a child in over 18 years because all the women alive are apparently infertile. The main character, Theo, gets asked by his ex to escort a pregnant woman to safety. The entire time I was thinking yeah right, with bullets flying everywhere!
This movie made me ache and quiver with nervousness. I could probably watch it again and be OK since I've prepared myself with a preview of the WHOLE THING. Ha. Ha. I think the lightest thing about the film was watching Michael Caine ask people to pull his finger, but you know what happens when you play that game.
Oh! Oh! I forgot! If you do decide to venture into Children of Men, just know that you will get to see a child of man be born. Yep! A live birth. Oooohhhhnnnnoooo!! Ugh! Yuck! It wasn't really real. Watch the extras to see how it was done. Pretty impressive graphics but still pretty gross. I know, I know, it's beautiful, but I'm sorry, every time I see it I think the same thing, giving birth is NASTY. OK. I'm done.
