If you haven't seen Children of Men and you don't want to know anything about the plot you should look away now...although I don't think I've given anything away that you don't know from the trailer.
My brother claimed, on this very blog, that it was utter rubbish with the strangest ending ever. I, as usually happens when one of us takes an opinion on anything, disagree with him. I mean, it wasn't as great as I had hoped it would be, it could have certainly done with more explosions and a couple of ninja kung fu fights but it was a pretty good film. It's no Rocky Balboa, but it's pretty good. Oh and the ending wasn't strange at all, I mean, clearly they owe us a few answers like 'is this the only pregnancy since everyone became sterile 20 years ago?' 'cos you know, if it is, then what's the point? One baby's not going to save mankind. But all that aside, it's set in a wonderfully bleak future, every sequence seems to be a single camera shot that lasts about 15 minutes, the action sequences that are in there are pretty unique (the gang attacking the car for example) and Michael Caine is worth the price of admission on his own.
