Blows the ending within the first minute ...
10 January 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This documentary gives viewers a glimpse of the new movie "Children of Men". More specifically, it focuses on the social issues raised by the movie.

One note caution though: if you haven't seen the actual movie yet - don't see this show first. I made that mistake. Michael Caine blurts out what ultimately happens in the movie within the first minute of this documentary. Fortunately, he doesn't give out details, but the filmmakers of this show should know better. Plus there's another specific comment about the movie's ending in the middle of the show. Really now - most airtimes for this show were before the movie was released.

This documentary makes the movie look like a major sci-fi movie - however, some might not regard it to be as 'sci-fi'-eque as this show will have you believe. It's more like a war movie in a third-world setting.

But that's OK - the actual movie is good.

It's interesting to hear the grand perspectives of the director, actors and even a panel of prominent individuals (specifically assembled by the SciFi Channel to discuss the movie). They pick up on various themes touched on by the movie and explore the ideas a bit.

It's fine to think about all that stuff - but what about the movie? This show is best viewed after seeing the actual movie. It seems that the people involved with the movie (including this show itself) are more interested in the ideas surrounding the movie than the actual film itself.
