Equilibrium is the pinnacle of action movies. I had no idea what it was until I picked it up at a rural video store and watched it. I expected it to be corny as most unknown movies are, but I was happily disappointed. The movie was the best action fighting I've ever seen - including the Matrix. I've watched it twice already and plan on watching it plenty more.

I only rate very good movies (and very bad movies because I want to fume about them), and it seems that the people already rating this movie have finally discovered a lesser known movie that surely found it's way into my mental list of oscar-should-be's. Based in the far future, after WWIII, it casts Christian Bale as a Cleric; a defender of the society. A society that is lead by a dictator who enforces the daily use of a drug called Prosium. Prosium is a drug that enduces an emotionless state of being. Emotion, as said by authority, is what brings war upon the peoples of earth, and it is ultimatley required at all paintings and books be burned, all lesser beings like cats and dogs be extinguished and all records of music and the like be thrown away. Clerics were special forces trained in the art of Gunkata; a martial art that uses guns as an ultimate deadly weapon. However, when one Cleric (Christian Bale) forgets to take his dose, he begins to see the truth in the attrocities in what they are doing. I rate it as PERFECT and I recommend it to all audiances. It is barely know, but it shouldn't be.

Enough said: "The BEST MOVIE I EVER SAW, AWESOME!" This movie has everything a movie goer has in mind: Action, plot, sci-fi, incredibly handsome actors... what more could anyone want? A must see at least 3 times where each time you appreciate it more than the first! Before this movie, my favorite movie was the MATRIX, now this movie, EQUILIBRIUM, has surpassed my expectations in every category.
