When firepower outweighs logic, you've got the making of a silly movie that borrows blatantly from LOGAN's RUN, FARENHEIT 451 and THX 1138. EQUILIBRIUM looks like one of those movies where a highschooler is asked to imagine Aldous Huxley meets THE MATRIX and the results are hamfisted, derogative and frankly insulting to intelligent sci-fi fans who should be looking for originality rather than body count.
Bale, who used to try for 'next big actor' is now going for the next Van Damme in FUTURE COP, er ROBOCOP, er TIME COP, no EQUILIBRIUM. He seems to excel now in playing gritty-lo-no-emotions (see or don't see his last turkey, REIGN OF FIRE).
This low budget MINORITY REPORT sci-fi movie has poor production values and a Cadillac Allante as a 'futuristic car'. But the biggest crime this movie commits is to waste a talent like Emily Watson who looks a little silly playing the emotional damsel in distress to Bale's Van Dammy hammy emotion cop. The logic in marketing this movie is to placate people waiting for THE MATRIX sequel. I'd rather rent a sci-fi original than waste time on this plastic bit of tripe.

So I doubt I'll see a really good release of this film in the near future...the picture quality, while just passable, is in the wrong aspect ratio and needs to be corrected and the DTS-MA is good, but not great. The latest release in the states is a double pack with the movie "Renaissance" that restores the correct aspect ratio but has lossy Dolby Digital 5.1. Gotta pick your poison with this title I guess...ugh...

They have missed the target. Or rather they hit the target of making a movie similar to many others. I found it almost as bad as The Matrix (washhh). I gave up listening to it around half way through. I am not in the psychological thing to the point of appreciating that kind of movie (...???). The real point is that a movie must be at least entertaining; this one is very little... Almost certainly won't be watching the second half. Too bad.
