Children of Men Blu-ray Review

ChildrenMenSquareBritain in the year 2027 is hell on earth: with childbirth a thing of the past, and state-sanctioned ‘suicide kits’ all the rage, the human race seems doomed to extinction, unless a former activist (Clive Owen) can protect a young woman carrying the world’s only unborn child. This early HD-DVD release, now reissued on Blu-ray, flatters Alfonso Cuaron’s gripping adaptation of PD James’ dystopian thriller with a crisp transfer which preserves the grit and grime of the theatrical release. An On the Beach for our times, it looks increasingly destined to be a future classic.

EXTRAS: The copious extras from the HD-DVD and standard-def DVDs – intelligent behind-the-scenes documentaries, Slavoj Zizek essay, deleted scenes, Cuaron commentary, Owen and Moore interviews, and more – are all included, along with a picture-in-picture feature offering a multiplicity of possibilities.
