Movie: Children of Men

This movie was good. The only thing I really wanted to point out about it is that, in spite of the fact that it is "science fiction," there really isn't any science fiction in it, other than the setting/situation. A woman who is a refugee, and apparently the lowest form of life, finds herself pregnant in a world where the youngest person alive is a teenager. She is about eight months pregnant, and some radical underground people are trying to get her to a place where she can have the baby and be treated like a human being.

No space ships. No laser guns. No robots. So, if you don't like science fiction, you might still like this movie. It stars Clive Owen, and includes in its cast Michael Caine and Julianne Moore.
