children of men

just saw children of men (94% on rotten tomatoes) and it's a great science-fiction movie. set in the near future, women have become sterile, and no children are born. the world has gone crazy, with most countries war-torn. however, england soldiers on, holding back many refugees that want to come in, trying to maintain a standard of living for the remaining brits.

anyway that's the background, but of course with just that background the movie could be awful. however, clive owen is fantastic, and the movie maintains a steady pace and doesn't get off track.

highly recommended. the trailer is below:
