Futuristic sci-fi drama about a world in which humans have almost completely lost the ability to procreate and the search for any remaining specimen that can. It's the year 2027 and earth's youngest human being, at 18, has just died. Extinction seems a certainty, aided by the fact that wars are now waged continually between desperate nationalistic factions. Set against the backdrop of London, Clive Owen plays Theo, a former activist now bureaucrat informed of the discovery a lone pregnant woman - ostensibly earth's last hope. The challenge is to deliver her from harm to a place where her baby can be delivered safely. Understandably, there is more than one of the warring factions that would benefit from getting their hands on her.

Children of Men [Blu-ray] Jon Freeman
What a great film, with a gripping portrayal of the futility and desperation of life in a near-future dystopian society in which manking has become sterile and no new children are being born. This is thrown into contrast by the main character, (played by Clive Owen in a career best performance) who becomes involved in a plot to enable the first pregnant woman in years to escape the clutches of the government and the "powers that be". Although this future world portrayed can be grim (see Michael Caine's moving cameo appearance) the films main story has within it the possibility of a ray of hope even in the most bleak of times,
Children of Men is gripping, exciting, and thought provoking. Don't be biased by the fact you may not have even heard of this movie, it IS a masterpiece.
