Distopias probably don't all have a Clive Owen

I watched Children of Men the other day and was struck by how completely they created the world around a supremely messed up future. Set 20 years in the future in a world that's gone to hell and people can no longer make babies. this film was pretty gripping. The girl who played Kee was amazing. Clive Owen was great (and as always so nice to look at).
I liked it, and I liked the ending but it seemed sort of anticlimatic. Not that it needed changed, but I do kinda with it had been treated a little differently. Also the super long shots were amazing, and the abundance of animals was pretty cool as well. I judge this one to be a 6.5.
