** The high-pitched atonal music that plays while Theo is trying to find Kee in the gun battle is an excerpt from "Threnody for the Victims of Hiroshima" by Krzysztof Penderecki. It's intentionally meant to evoke chaos, panic and fear. It's also a CallBack to the movie's use of tinnitus to indicate ageing.

* {{Most Annoying Sound}}: [[spoiler:Baby Dylan's crying can get old pretty fast for viewers. That said in a world that's been devoid of an infant's cries so long it would certainly be the most wonderful sound.]] ''WesternAnimation/RobotChicken'' lampooned this discrepancy, when their ''Children of Men'' spoof [[spoiler:cut from a soldier holding the crying Dylan in awe, to Kee and Dylan flying in an airplane, and her crying annoying the hell out of another passenger.]]

** Alas, no matter how serious the subject, the term "sci-fi" does still carry the lingering knee-jerk image of Buck Rogers-type Space Patrols and gee-whiz zap-pistols; such things were (fittingly) sparse or absent here.

* AwesomeMusic: [[KingCrimson "In the Court of the Crimson King"]] was just a great choice, because the song's majesty is so ironic given the sad state of the world.

* DarknessInducedAudienceApathy: The problem some detractors have with the film. Most characters act completely reprehensible, anyone who does have a shred of likability is killed fairly quickly after they appear, [[spoiler: and even the hero is dead by the end of the film. Before his death, he is able to successfully evacuate Kee and her child to a save haven]] but given the major CrapsackWorld setting any chance of it being a long-term recluse away from all the warring factions before it catches up to them is slim at best.
