The world's youngest citizen has just died at 18, and humankind is facing the likelihood of its own extinction. Set in and around a dystopian London fractious with violence and warring nationalistic sects, Children of Men follows the unexpected discovery of a lone pregnant woman and the desperate journey to deliver her to safety and restore faith for a future beyond those presently on Earth.
Arabic graffiti next to the word "uprising" is a misspelling of "intifadah" ('uprising' in Arabic). It was written with the letter dal instead of dad. The correct spelling of intifadah uses the letter dad; it also ends with a ta marbuta, not an alef.
In the coffee shop the word "cappuccino" is misspelled on the wall. It's missing the third "c".
When Theo and Jasper smoke Strawberry Cough, the sleeping cat changes its position between every cut without ever waking up.
When Theo and the two women escape from the farmhouse, it is dark while he is disabling the cars. Yet minutes later, after they have freewheeled down the dirt track, there is already bright morning sunshine.
When Theo has agreed to help the Fishes by getting transit papers for Kee and follows an agent to what turns out to be a meeting with Julian on a Double Decker Bus, the bus he chases and presumably boards is a thinly disguised MCW Metrobus, dating from ci
When Nigel yells at Alex to take his pills, Alex takes the first pill and drinks some water. The next camera shot of Alex shows him taking a second pill but his glass has more water in it than before. Also, in these same three camera swaps Nigel's pill bo
Before getting on the bus, the photo of the "lost dog" is of a Sheltie, and is labeled as such. But when getting on the bus, the dog is actually a Papillon, not a Sheltie.
When Theo is having dinner with Nigel, the wires appear to be missing from Alex's hand. In the next close up, the wires are back again.
When Theo overhears Luke's plans to kill him, he wears socks. In the following scenes where he escapes the safe house and pushes the car, he wears shoes.
During the first continuous shot following Theo leaving the coffee shop, the reflection on the coffee shop door shows the faces of a patrol officer and a group of people just outside the door and walking to the right. Yet when the camera exits the shop, t
In the climactic 6-minute battle shot, just before Theo enters the hallway where he finds Kee, the camera is briefly visible in the reflection of a window.
After the attack on the Fiat Multipla (carrying Luke, Julian, Theo, Miriam, and Kee), when they stop for the police, just as Theo gets out, out his door you can momentarily see part of the framework for the elaborate roof camera rig. As the view crosses t
When Theo enters the building to find and rescue Kee from the shooting, earplugs can be seen as he climbs the stairs.
Just before Theo leaves the "Ark of the Arts", when the camera moves to a closeup of the painting they were discussing the shadow of the cameraman is visible.
Just before Theo enters the blown-out apartment building in Bexhill while searching for Kee, there is a London Underground (subway) sign visible.
Theo enters Battersea Power Station, after crossing the Thames to speak with his cousin, but when he arrives, the car enters a place that is obviously Tate Modern. Afterward, the scenery returns to what it would be, had it been Battersea Power Station.
When Theo, Kee and Miriam move between Syd's vehicle and the bus to take them to Bexhill, the M3 motorway is visible at the top right of the frame. This scene was filmed at Chobham test track in Surrey (the control tower for the test track also features p
When trying to escape from the farm the car has a flat battery, so they roll the car to attempt the push start it. When it does start you can hear that the car is an automatic. You cannot push start a car with an automatic gearbox.
When entering Jasper's house for the first time, an obviously retouched photo (with the headline "MI5 DENY INVOLVEMENT IN TORTURE OF PHOTOJOURNALIST") shows Janice Palmer holding a camera with a large lens. The hand holding the weight of the lens shows a
At both the outer and inner gate of the camp (start and end of bus trip) the bus passes underneath a signpost reading "HOMELAND SECURITY - BEXHILL REFUGEE CAMP". Though located far from one another the signposts look exactly the same - down to every spot
When Theo and Kee get into the boat at Bexhill Water Authority, it is in a level body of water in a tunnel that is clearly not tidal. Yet they emerge seconds later into the sea, which is of course tidal, without apparently having made any descent.
When Kee reveals her pregnancy to Theo in The Fishes' barn, her left arm is across her chest and her right hand below her pregnant belly. During the cuts between Theo's reaction and Kee's body, her arms are switched (with her right arm across her chest an
When Julian is shot in the car blood appears on the windscreen. In the next shot the blood is gone.
When Julian gets shot the windshield gets broken, then when they drive away the windshield falls to the ground. Yet, as they make it to the farm the glass is back on.

As Theo and Kee ride through the Bexhill Refugee Camp there is graffiti on the wall that reads "Uprising." Above this is an Arabic word that is meant to read "Intifada," Arabic for uprising. However, this word is misspelled.

Two characters refer to "jump starting" a car, but what they mean is "bump starting" (or push starting). Jump starting a car involves connecting an extra battery.

When Theo has agreed to help the Fishes by getting transit papers for Kee and follows an agent to what turns out to be a meeting with Julian on a Double Decker Bus, the bus he chases and presumably boards is a thinly disguised MCW Metrobus, dating from circa 1982, with characteristic boxy, old-fashioned appearance. However, when we cut to the bus interior, it is that of a Wrightbus Gemini model, dating from 2003 or later - this model is much curvier in shape than the Metrobus. Once Julian and Theo leave the bus, it passes by, and we see that it is indeed now the modern vehicle from which they have alighted, carrying the manufacturer's stylised 'W' moulding on the rear panel.
When Nigel yells at Alex to take his pills, Alex takes the first pill and drinks some water. The next camera shot of Alex shows him taking a second pill but his glass has more water in it than before. Also, in these same three camera swaps Nigel's pill box moves closer to his wine glass, which now has less wine than the previous shot, even though Nigel's position doesn't change.
During the first continuous shot following Theo leaving the coffee shop, the reflection on the coffee shop door shows the faces of a patrol officer and a group of people just outside the door and walking to the right. Yet when the camera exits the shop, the cop does not appear in view as expected from the reflection, rather the cop and group instantly appear further down the street to the right.
After the scene when Julian is shot in the car, the windshield cracks and shatters. In the next scene, it is raining and the car's wipers are wiping the water off a windshield.
After the attack on the Fiat Multipla (carrying Luke, Julian, Theo, Miriam, and Kee), when they stop for the police, just as Theo gets out, out his door you can momentarily see part of the framework for the elaborate roof camera rig. As the view crosses the door pillar it disappears; this is apparently used to transition to another shot.
When Theo, Kee and Miriam move between Syd's vehicle and the bus to take them to Bexhill, the M3 motorway is visible at the top right of the frame. This scene was filmed at Chobham test track in Surrey (the control tower for the test track also features prominently here) but traffic on the motorway is visible underneath the bridge which swoops around to the right of the frame.
When entering Jasper's house for the first time, an obviously retouched photo (with the headline "MI5 DENY INVOLVEMENT IN TORTURE OF PHOTOJOURNALIST") shows Janice Palmer holding a camera with a large lens. The hand holding the weight of the lens shows a right hand but should be a left hand. It is unlikely that she would have a little finger that is longer than her index finger, as shown in the photo.
At both the outer and inner gate of the camp (start and end of bus trip) the bus passes underneath a signpost reading "HOMELAND SECURITY - BEXHILL REFUGEE CAMP". Though located far from one another the signposts look exactly the same - down to every spot and mark of the heavily applied artificial weathering.
When Kee reveals her pregnancy to Theo in The Fishes' barn, her left arm is across her chest and her right hand below her pregnant belly. During the cuts between Theo's reaction and Kee's body, her arms are switched (with her right arm across her chest and left hand below her belly), then back again after the next cut.
