Talk:Children of Men
I think the PKM is a L7A1.Oliveira 23:06, 28 April 2009 (UTC)
It is a PKM- note the front sight, the feed cover and the folded bipod- all of them correspond to the actual weapon and not the L7. As for why it is in British use, the weapon is only seen for roughly 2-3 seconds before the scene cuts, which isn't really long enough for most viewers to notice. Markit
Should this movie really be clumped into this category? 04:33, 15 June 2010 (UTC)
How is it not...they are pretty much living without law and its basically the end of mankind...unless this baby brings new hope of other babies. Spades of Columbia
- Not really. If you pay attention to the movie, there is still a major government in place. It isn't like the British government is gone. They have an official military that seems well armed and well supplied and not a bunch of random group of people. It's just these specific places have intense civil unrest, which isn't a new thing for England. They've had this kind of shit before like in Belfast, Ireland. You noticed at the beginning of the movie, the main character was walking through a downtown area. Post apocalyptic implies the end of civilization and all we're left is Road Warrior kind of shit or zombies. Excalibur01 03:08, 17 June 2010 (UTC)
Depends on your view of "Post-apocalyptic"... The movie makes it pretty clear that the rest of the world is falling apart, if not in downright anarchy. Though I'd agree this isn't fully "Post-apocalyptic" and more "Dystopian", it certainly has one foot in the apocalyptic genre. -The Canadian Gun Nut
The movie makes it clear that the British government is claiming that the rest of the world is falling apart. You never actually see any scenes in other countries that aren't part of a news telecast. That could just be propaganda on the British government's part to keep the unrest to a minimum. David.
Possible Browning Hi-Power. The gentleman on the far right. --Milkovich 18:57, 25 August 2010 (UTC)
I agree. Nice catch. Acora 20:32, 25 August 2010 (UTC)
Found a better shot. --Milkovich 09:09, 26 August 2010 (UTC)
That's an Canadian made Inglis Hi-power, not the commercial gun with "beer can" sights:
Thus far it is the only time I saw it in the movie. --Milkovich 09:56, 26 August 2010 (UTC)
L85A1 not L85A2
The weapons have been misidentified as A2s not A1s. They clearly have the round cocking handle of the A1.
- You would be right. Fixed. Spartan198 12:40, 21 June 2011 (CDT)
Remote Weapon Station?
Anyone have any idea if this is an actual RWS mounted on the vehicle or just one made for the movie? --Mss gag (talk) 23:05, 30 October 2016 (EDT)
