Mixed reviews of Children of Men,,>?

Who here has seen Children of Men- HD_DVD, imdb.com and rottentomatoes> fresh approved. I hear it was great and others that said it sucked. I am tempted to buy it but would like some thoughts on people who have seen it. I dont usually rent just buy.

A few questions:
1) Is it that good to buy
2) Is it rewatchable good plot

The movie itself did not live up to what I expected after seeing the trailers but it is still a good movie IMO and likely worth buying.

imo it was overhyped. I heard it was the best movie of 2006, so when I saw it, I was a little let down; there were many other films I enjoyed more.
I'm not buying it on HD-DVD.

It's not the amazingly profound, life-changing movie I heard it was, although it certainly looks and acts like one. What it is is a terrifically well-filmed, exciting, involving action movie that's essentially one long chase scene for the entire last hour. And the HD DVD is really superb. This was the first thing I watched when I got a player and I was totally blown away. I couldn't recommend it more for a purchase.

I hated this movie. It feels like it has no real conclusion and I feel like the movie was taking a minor part of a story and stretching it out. I can't really complain about this without spoilers, but it was pretty much, boring, esoteric, and great if you want to stare at unhappy people in complete chaos for 120 minutes. And I don't care that it has that giant tracking one take shot. I want to watch a movie that is enjoyable, not because it has a great technological/acting feats.

I hated it. The plot seemed like it was thrown together too quickly and there's too much stuff that's left open to leave you wondering, the ending alone is garbage. I saw it once and that's enough for me.
