Even though I already posted a review for this extremely overrated shitfest of a movie, I feel like talking about it more.
Equilibrium is one of the worst sci-fi/action movies ever made. It's an extremely uninspired amalgamation of The Matrix, 1984, and THX 1138.
Plagued with horrendously ridiculous action scenes with ZERO tension in them, painfully corny dialogue and acting, plotholes galore, Lifetime movie-level sentimentality, and cheesy symbolism beaten over your head like a billy club, it infuriates me that this abomination to celluloid now has a pretty big following. It's even more infuriating that there's gobs of aspiring movie writers and directors out there that can't get their feet in the door in Hollywood, yet Equilibrium writer/director Kurt Wimmer still finds work somehow.
Equilibrium tries way too hard to be entertaining, emotional, and thought-provoking, and miserably fails at all three.
Fuck this shitty movie and go for Robocop, Total Recall (1990 version), THX 1138, and Solaris (1972 version) for sci-fi and action movies that are entertaining and/or thought-provoking.
