Though ultimately silly, Equilibrium's shopworn but stylish synthesis of ammo and ideas is surprisingly engrossing.

A balanced thriller.

Kurt Wimmer's Equilibrium is a dreary sci-fi action movie set after the Third World War in a dystopia from which all dangerous human emotion has been drained by the daily injection of the drug Prozium and the burning of art and books.

This medium-budgeted, futuristic action tale that arrives on screens with precious little fanfare is, to my mind, the best film I've seen all year.
April 17, 2019
Despite often being preposterous and heavy-handed, there are enough slick visuals to offset the overall silliness, and the displays of "Gun-kata" - a blend of martial arts and gunplay - provide some blistering action scenes.

It's hard not to feel you've just watched a feature-length video game with some really heavy back story.

Violent post-nuclear sci-fi is Orwellian.
April 29, 2009
Channels the themes of George Orwell and the action of John Woo wonderfully.

Who knew that a reunion of Metroland stars Bale and Watson could yield something so downright nutty?

An engaging ride, with some quicksilver moves.

Bale is too self-conscious an action hero, and although the script may have the virtue of transparent plagiarism, it teeters both dramatically and conceptually.

It only adds unneeded celluloid to an increasingly tired genre!
December 16, 2004
C'est un film qui rivalise avec les plus gros blockbusters hollywoodiens. Je l'ai trouv beaucoup plus satisfaisant que The Matrix Reloaded.

... Equilibrium is one of the better action/sci-fi movies of the year ...
September 18, 2003
If you were disappointed by recent sci-fi actioners like Terminator 3, then you'd probably be pleasantly surprised by this underappreciated movie . . .
September 6, 2003
Wimmer delivers the already labored story with the subtlety of a sledgehammer.
August 8, 2003
50% homage to the classic science fiction touchstones and 50% damn solid in its own right.
June 27, 2003
Apesar de obviamente inspirado em Matrix (para no citar 1984 e Fahrenheit 451, entre outros), o filme convence graas ao interessante dilema emocional de seu protagonista e s intensas coreografias das seqncias de ao.
