Goofs

  • When Nigel yells at Alex to take his pills, Alex takes the first pill and drinks some water. The next camera shot of Alex shows him taking a second pill but his glass has more water in it than before. Also, in these same three camera swaps Nigel's pill box moves closer to his wine glass, which now has less wine than the previous shot, even though Nigel's position doesn't change.

Owen carries the film more in the tradition of a Jimmy Stewart or Henry Fonda than a Clint Eastwood or Harrison Ford. He has to wear flip-flops for part of the time without losing his dignity, and he never reaches for a weapon or guns anyone down. Cuaron and Owen may have created the first believable 21st-century movie hero.

The performances are crucial, because all of these characters have so completely internalized their world that they make it palpable, and themselves utterly convincing.

Children of Men is Cuarón's run for freedom, with a riveting story, fantastic action scenes and acting so universally solid that even the dogs perform masterfully under his direction.
