On a Mission: Equilibrium

OK, I've GOT to find me this movie. Tonight! If Nate's thumb's-up wasn't enough, how about a nice serving of hotties for ya? Angus McFayden (Braveheart's Robert the Bruce; Divine Secrets of the Ya-Ya Sisterhood's Connor), Christian Bale (Little Women's Laurie, Swing Kids, Reign of Fire), and Dominic Purcell (Blade: Trinity's Drake) to be exact. And there may be more...

I hear the action's as good as or better than The Matrix. Hot dang!


Update: The movie was out of stock at the store, so PK and I are gonna do the Netflix thing. Will let you know how it turns out.

It was pretty cool. I like the Matrix best, but that is probably because it was the first movie I saw with that kind of onscreen action and therefore packed quite a visual punch.

OH... Christian Bale kicks so much ass. Great movie.. GREAT movie.

It's the kind of movie that makes girls...

wait... that's to naughty to say here.

What? What? A good action movie? With Robert the Bruce and Christian Bale?

I saw that several years ago. It was a good action flick. I thought Matrix was better, but I saw it first and no doubt had a much larger budget. The movie has a great sword fight finale. Enjoy.

Oh yeah, Equilibrium is AWESOME. I saw it a couple of years ago. I liked it best for the political statement it made. It was sort of the other extreme of what could have happened in Harrison Bergeron.

It's not "great," only because its too blatantly ripping off 1984. The Gun Kata is the highlight of the movie. The classical music/phonograph scene is the best one in the film in that actually starts to emotionally connect with the audience. I don't think the movie capitalizes on it though.

Ok... am I the only one here who immediately discounts the oppinion of every reviewer who says something about emotional connection with the audiance?

Great movie, Elena. I watched this after Nate's suggestion, too. I liked it better than The Matrix, because I found the story more coherent; but that's just my opinion. You should really enjoy it, what w/ the additional female lure of all those "hotties." ;-)

Considering that A. P. is the only person I know who has consistently good taste in movies, I wouldn't discount his opinion so quickly, no matter how little emotional connection you need to feel for a movie.
