Children Of Men
Brilliant but rather worrying vision of Britain in the future. Based around the world’s first pregnancy for years, Children Of Men is a rollercoaster ride of emotion, mixing action, drama, and humour the way it should be done. Lead role Owen is fantastic as the broody yet unlikely hero, with good support from all of the other parties. Look out in particular for the Saving Private Ryan esque scene towards the films end, which can be described as nothing else, but jaw dropping. And any film that casts Michael Caine as a weed-smoking hippy is one not to be missed.
