A really good movie. Powerful, even. Excellent performances all round, especially Clive Owen and Chiwetel Ejiofor.
In short: it’s the near future. No children have been born for 18 years, worldwide. The world has fallen into ruin, except proud, fascist Britain, which is maintaining a stiff upper lip and rounding up all illegal immigrants – ‘Fugees – into detention camps.
Theo (Owen) meets Kee, a Fugee that has fallen pregnant – and is tasked with protecting her from, well, everyone.
Some stunning action sequences, one of which contains the emotional climax of the movie, really satisfy. Two thumbs up.
