Children Of Men Review


Excellent
Perhaps because of its bleak outlook, its lushly dark tones, or its often blunt criticism of the current world state, Alfonso Cuaron's fourth major film will have to fight just as hard as his two Spanish films to find an audience. The bearer of one the worst marketing and public relations campaigns in years, Children of Men could have been the wriggling stepson that Universal has made it out to be, but it turns out to be anything but.

It's 2027, and the youngest person in Britain (and the world), Baby Diego, has just been killed by a rabid fan; he was 18. Somewhere between 2006 and 2016, women started becoming infertile, causing mass miscarriages and major panics. Theo (Clive Owen) doesn't seem that concerned when we meet him, narrowly averting an explosion near a local café. He spends his time with his friend Jasper (a wily Michael Caine) who makes cannabis mixed with strawberry and tries to forget the family he once had. Julian (Julianne Moore), his ex-wife, has taken up with a pack of refugees that fight against the military state that has been active since London began understanding its grave future. When Julian stumbles upon a girl who miraculously is with child, she immediately kidnaps Theo and puts him in charge of getting the girl, Kee (Claire-Hope Ashitey), to a specialized group of the world's smartest people known as the Human Project.

Eye Of The Beholder Review


Weak
Apparently it's not all tuxedos and vodka martinis, shaken not stirred, in the alleged real-world of the British intelligence. Ewan McGregor plays "The Eye" a high-tech voyeur who is about as charismatic as a piece of lawn furniture. But it's not about that. The Eye's job, as the name implies, is about surveillance: A responsibility that requires him to detach himself from the rest of the world and watch it through an electronic eye. Yet it is this very act that has caused his greatest grief and most regrets in life. He blames himself for the loss of his wife and daughter. Now they appear to him in hallucinations.

The Eye's current assignment is to follow Joanna Eris (Ashley Judd), a woman accused of blackmailing a British official. But she is far more than a simple blackmailer. She is a crafty, seductive spider woman, capable of killing as quickly as she can seduce. As The Eye continues to watch Eris, he becomes entranced by her disguises and cunning charm. Soon he begins to feel that they are kindred spirits.
