Synopsis:
In the futuristic world, a strict regime has eliminated war by suppressing emotions: books, art and music are strictly forbidden and feeling is a crime punishable by death. Cleric John Preston (Christian Bale) is a top ranking government agent responsible for destroying those who resist the rules. When he misses a dose of Prozium, a mind-altering drug that hinders emotion, Preston, who has been trained to enforce the strict laws of the new regime, suddenly becomes the only person capable of overthrowing it.

Unoriginal Matrix clone - Equilibrium review by CP Customer

Spoiler Alert
27/10/2005

After World War III comes close to destroying human civilization, mankind decides war and violent crime must be avoided at any cost. In order to prevent this, all emotions and items that might elicit emotions are prohibited. Everyone must take Prosium, an emotion suppressing drug. Those who refuse to take the drug are labeled 'sense offenders' and are hunted down by State's elite police force, known as the Clerics. John Preston (Christian Bale) is a highly dedicated Cleric, though when he accidentally skips a dose of Prosium; his newfound emotions cause him to question the wisdom of his emotionless society. He is then recruited by the Underground, an outlawed pro-emotion movement, to take on a seemingly impossible mission, to assassinate the political leader behind the State and free humanity from the tyranny of Prosium. Equilibrium's costumes, camera angles, martial arts sequences are low budget copies of 'The Matrix', and the storyline borrows heavily from films like 'Fahrenheit 451', 'THX-1138' and George Orwell's '1984'. If you're a fan of action films, you might get a kick out of some of the martial arts gun sequences. Otherwise, give it a miss.
