Violent post-nuclear sci-fi is Orwellian.

Channels the themes of George Orwell and the action of John Woo wonderfully.

C'est un film qui rivalise avec les plus gros blockbusters hollywoodiens. Je l'ai trouvé beaucoup plus satisfaisant que The Matrix Reloaded.

If you were disappointed by recent sci-fi actioners like Terminator 3, then you'd probably be pleasantly surprised by this underappreciated movie . . .

50% homage to the classic science fiction touchstones and 50% damn solid in its own right.

Apesar de obviamente inspirado em Matrix (para não citar 1984 e Fahrenheit 451, entre outros), o filme convence graças ao interessante dilema emocional de seu protagonista e às intensas coreografias das seqüências de ação.

An entertaining but unspectacular film. Pretty goofy at times - but the slick and gleefully self-indulgent violence will not disappoint the action fan.

'Equilibrium' succeeds primarily because of Christian Bale's uncanny ability to project the awakening soul of the character he portrays.

You could rant at me for hours all the reasons it sucks, and I'd probably agree with most of them -- but the point is, I had fun.

Equilibrium is what George Orwell might have imagined had today's mood-altering drug therapy been envisioned by chemists in 1949.
