      Equilibrium is one of my go-to dystopian films. Love the strobe effect with the forced entry scene. The movie draws from Brave New World, THX 1138, Fahrenheit 451, and 1984. The heavy social-credit and pharmaceutical foci are terrifyingly relevant, two decades on...

      I had a friend show it to me back in the early 2000s when I was chilling at her place overnight (we did a few movies she chose to show me thinking I'd like), and I was blown away!
      I love a good mindfuck, dark sci-fi/dystopian dark, and I know Fahrenheit 451 so immediately connected that, and the others that it is similar too, and still LOVE it.
      makes me FEEL, and Beethoven is the greatest ever of music! perfect

      ppl could not understand the tone the movie was going for back then. Its a bit lie Starship troopers was hated because the simpeltons could not understand its a social critic parody paired with syfy and all they saw was a cheeky looking star wars movie with the most simple characters u can imagine. Ppl have a real hard time to understand that most movies are just a diguise for storys and what u see is just a tool to tell it sometimes its more what u see sometimes its just a metaphor like they live is a complete metaphor nothing else with that in mind theese movies are complete different expirience. Alot of ppl cant just figure it out thats the simple truth.
      Noone really thinks he future will look like this movie but the thought and true danger of emotions beeing banned is more real than ever in this woke world.
      I adore this movie and christian bale and im very happy they made it. Such a piece of art how movies should be

    I freaking love this movie.
    I wish the fight scenes and gun kata in this didn't have as many cuts as they do but still, it's all done very well. Its main similarity to John Wick is that it has a pretty innovative and well executed concept. The creation and parallel existence of two completely different worlds, moved forward by different sets of rules or lack thereof.
    For Preston, the gradual transition from utter apathy to overwhelming emotion is brilliantly done by Christian Bale. I still want to know if Taye Diggs' character was a sense offender or not. He really did smile a lot. I'd say it's sarcasm but he's not supposed to be able to do that either, is he?

    One of my favourite action films, so underrated it should be considered a sense-crime!
    Preston saving the puppy(the first time)is such a brilliant scene, one of the best in the film, the way Preston flinches for every shot, but have to keep his cool, until it becomes unbearable for him.
    I mean, what tugs on your Heartstrings more than getting a kiss from a little puppy. Now imagine meeting a puppy for the "first time ever" you'd essentially die from cuteness overload!
    The Prozium only dulls your emotions though, it doesn't completely erase them and you're "allowed" to smile and be courteous, but your logic and reason are supposed to be your driving force, not emotions/feelings. Bluntly put, Prozium overly tips the Mind/Heart scale in favour of the former.
    Because Preston is such an intuitive cleric his son overcompensates to come off as a robot while also protecting his sister.
    I still, to this day, hope that Kurt Wimmer(the director)will announce a sequel or prequel - both would work really well, imo.

    Gun Fu was inspired by John Woo’s high octane Hong Kong gun action flicks. From there, Equilibrium takes the premise literally and even name it as Gun Kata and show it on screen. John Wick finesses it to perfection.

    Watched this on a whim once... absolutely loved it. Really great idea. Creates its world extremely well. Bale nails the acting. The fighting style is unique and fun and an interesting twist on normal fights. This one is totally underrated by pretty much everyone. Favorite moment is when he just cuts Tay to pieces with ZERO delay or waste of energy. Just ends him. Quick. Efficient. No talking. Done. That is an amazing moment. A lot of people make fun of the Gun Kata stuff, but it's actually pretty damn cool idea.

  • Ian Borchardt

    The director self admits that he made a mistake hiring actual martial artists for this movie. Their action was too fast and accurate to film properly. He truly realised this in a conversation with Maggie Cheung on a flight to Singapore, who recommended dancers, who are trained to repeat detailed physical choreography with exacting precision (Maggie is herself a ballerina [and one of *The Heroic Trio* ]). Incidentally that is the director himself in the title sequence doing gun katas. Apparently he ran out of money on this small budget movie (only USD$20 million apparently) and had to film himself when putting together the opening credits during editing.
    Gun Fu was a formal genre in HK cinema since John Woo's *Hard Boiled* (1992) , where the director applied standard wuxia tropes to a gun duel (although you can find earlier sporadic examples of interesting gunfight sequences in many earlier HK action films, just not as formalised). And of course, many imitators afterwards.

    • ThrottleVinnieModo
      ThrottleVinnieModo 5 ай бұрын +1

      Gun Fu established its roots in John Woo's A Better Tomorrow (1986), then he brought it to the US w/ 1989's The Killer. Hard Boiled is the peak of the concept, while Face/Off popularized it in the west.

    I remember when I had first found this film, it was just a bit after I finished reading Orwell's 1984 for a class I was in (like you guys say it reminds you of haha). I remember loving it that much more, because I felt it was 1984 meets the matrix.
    I'm also a sucker for a 'character on the antagonist side switching'. Or like, that awakening to the corruption they're a part of and then fighting against it. The whole, taking something down from the inside... gosh, I've always loved this movie. It's really epic, and emotional (though I suppose that's a main point!)
    Was excited to see a reaction to this film.
    I remember not expecting an optimistic ending, and was pleasantly surprised to get one.

    Glad to see this movie is finally getting the attention from reactors it deserves. The Matrix influence of course is very obvious even to him waking to the "real world" also esthetically, wardrobe, "gun-fu" 🙂, etc. But it's a real gem on itself and quite unique in the action genre.

    Sweet that you guys reacted to and love Equilibrium. Me and my friends went to see it, thinking it might be a fun dumb action flick to just waste the day with at the theater. We were pleasantly proven so wrong where the themes along with the acting were good. It's going to turn 20 next year, which is crazy to think about.
    Here's a few recommendations for you guys to add to the viewing list:
    - Big Trouble in Little China (1986). John Carpenter. Kurt Russell. Martial arts. Adventure. Mortal Kombat. ;-)
    - Best of the Best (1989). A good martial arts/sports movie of it's time. Also has a great 80's soundtrack. A fantastic ending that'll require tissues.
    - Warrior (2011). A great martial arts/sports movie with Tom Hardy and Joel Edgerton. Great ending.

    Wow. Impressive pick guys. The dystopian version of the world this film takes place in is heavily influenced by George Orwell's literary classic '1984'. In that book people are not allowed to show emotion, they have extremely limited rights and no freedome of speech, and everyone is monitored all the time. Their are surveillance cameras everywhere, even in people's own homes, and the world looks very similar to the one in this movie. Very grey with nothing to evoke emotion.
    What's interesting is that George Orwell wrote the book in the 1940's and it talks about a lot of technologies that didn't exist until recently. It's also considered one of the best books ever written and is well worth reading.

    I saw this in a real theater when I was stationed in Hawaii. I remember reading in the paper about movies playing that weekend, and decided to take a girl to see Equilibrium based on a one-paragraph synopsis. First thing I did when I got back to the barracks afterward was tell all my friends how good it was. The next weekend my buddies said they couldn't find the film playing anywhere. A story I read years later was that since the film had actually premiered in Germany (where it was filmed) and had already made its budget back there, the studio didn't want to risk any more money on advertising in the US if it were to flop.

Father Tres Iqus, codename "Gunslinger," is a cybernetic member of an organization called AX, deployed by the Vatican, which basically defends what's left of the earth from vampires. His fighting style (gunfu or gun-kata) is very similar to Cleric Preston's. He even uses the same type of gun.

    My list of fav distopian and post-apo movies - these are different sub-genres of cathastrophic movies I think :)
    So I want to recommend :
    "Farrenhait 451" - old French version, absolute masterpiece.
    "1984" - with J. Hurt, of course masterpiece too.
    "Brasil" - with Ian Holm, masterpiece but a bit forgotten.
    "Harrison Bergeron" - with Sean Astin, the most underated movie and great role of Astin.
    "Equilibrium", with Sean Bean,
    "In Time" - from 2011, the idea of slavery through money and that this money is time is absolutely pathological and briliant :)
    "Elisium", with Matt Damon and Jodie Foster, - the Earth is one big slums and the rich live on the orbit in luxurious paradise,
    "The Running Man" - with A. Schwarzeneger,
    "Edge of Tomorrow" - with Tom Cruise, IMO its one of the most tragic heroes of all movies, to be able to defeat aliens invasion he must die, not once but many times.
    "Maze Runner" trilogy, good movie for kids about kids,
    "Mortal Engines" - by P. Jackson, in distant future big cities are kind of vehicles, they ride in search of energy, of sourses and they fight for sources on the vast wasteland.
    IMO the most underrated movie here is Harrison Bergeron and In Time. I left "Mortal Engines" as the last on the list becouse thats decent movie but I guess way below Jackson's abilities :)

      Well, Sean Bean didn't die _on-screen_ in Ronin, but given what occurs later in the film I wouldn't be surprised if someone didn't follow-up later to eliminate him quietly.
      Speaking of, if you guys haven't seen Ronin you should definitely watch Ronin.

    Taye Diggs character kept smiling because the bastard could feel. That's what pissed me off the most when I saw this on DVD back in 03. There they are, killing all these people, for the very 'crimes' they themselves were guilty of. I was absolutely repulsed by the hypocrisy.

    I don't think Taye Digg's character was lying about being intuitive. My theory is that he was naturally resistant to the emotion suppressants which is what drew Father to him in the first place, as his potential spy.
    But, despite his emotional intuition, his loyalty to Father was too great, so he wasn't able to think like the rebels.
    That's why they go through the whole charade with Preston. They deliberately gaslight him and pressure him until his loyalty cracks.

    When this film was released, the audience wanted high graphics, high cgi flicks which mimicked reality on screen. In time, we got superhero flix. Only now people are realizing the importance of movies with deep meaning. Hence movies like such are making a comeback

    i know im late on the comment and i read alot of them but, yous talked alot about about Tate always smiling even though he shouldnt be showing emotion. But i believe that it is similar to the likes of sociopaths. i.e i have a sociopathic friend, although he tries his hardest to blend in because he realises there is something wrong with him. He smiles alot when he encounters things that probably shouldnt make you curious, but i think the smiling part of that is really a biological reaction rather than a emotional one.
    And when he begins to raise his voice near the end, it is like a narcissist who found out that they were not the centre of attention.

    Taye Diggs' character seems like what would happen if you give a natural-born psychopath Prozium. If you already have trouble accessing emotions except for anger and/or deriving pleasure from making others suffer, would Prozium even do anything?
    This is a society that rewards psychopathy, where they actively try to turn their forces into one. I mean, murdering your wife without emotion is pretty ruthless. So that anger/getting pleasure from hurting people might be something they overlook, or just say "Nah, you don't need Prozium", since he's effective for their goals.

    It was released on May 7th 1824. 197 years ago.
    The copyright duration of composed music is the same as for books, paintings and other literary and artistic works: the author's lifetime + 70 years.
