Cool Movie

Hey... I just got finished watching the coolest movie. It is called Equilibrium... I bet some of you have probably already seen it but this movie is awesome. It does remind one of the Matrix a bit but yet so much different... cuz there is no Keanu (whom I have never really liked all that much) but instead has Christian Bale. What a badass he is... I thought American Psycho was by far one of the best movies I have ever seen and he sold that one to me as did he with this one.

Very cool plot too... It's like a Millenium version of 1984 and Brave New World wrapped up with awesome visual effects and gun play that just too cool. Very cool storyline even though I thought both of those novels were rather slow. But anyhow... this movie was very neat and I am surprised that I never heard of it before.

But yeah... if you are interested by my description you should definately check it out. 'Nuff said.

It also borrowed A LOT from the book Fahrenheit 451

yup. it's got a lot of literary influences. BUT it was pulled off alright. the fighting was very cool looking. and sped up, instead of slowed down, like in the matrix.

there was some cheese, though. but I don't want to spoil it for people that haven't seen it, so I won't mention the parts that didn't strike me as right.

Yeah!! I was looking for that title (Fahrenheit 451) to add on to the list... but I do see your point with the "cheese". The sped up action I think really brought out a lot of the best scenes in a film.

It was an all around decent movie with some of the best fighting I could have imagined. I liked being able to pick out all the literary influences in the movie... I think films that allow you to do that are the most fun to watch.

I think they did a marvellous job overall. aside from the nitpicks I haven't mentioned. I loved the antiseptic nature of the place. everything was so clean and conformed. it was great.
