    Children of Men

    Has anybody else seen this?

    One of the best movies I've seen in a long time.

    Yep. Great movie. One of the four best movies I've seen in the last year along with the Namesake, Pan's Labyrinth, and Casino Royale.

    I also thought it was a pretty good flick.

    I was surpised how realistic the violence was in the urban warfare scenes...

    Loved it. As Blimpie said, the urban warfare scenes were really intense and seemed pretty realistic. Pretty thought provoking movie.

    I really enjoyed how the director utilized only a single camera to pan different aspects throughout a scene. That technique was especially effective for the urban warfare scenes; made them much more chaotic, exciting, and visceral.
