Equilibrium is equal parts video game and GQ fashion spread. full review
This inventive, low-budget science-fiction movie stands on its own, from its bracing, ingenious fight sequences to its literate roots in dystopian fiction.
Borrows from so many literary and cinematic sources that this future world feels absolutely deja vu.
It's super- violent, super-serious and super-stupid. full review
A dull, somnambulant exercise in pretension whose pervasive quiet is broken by frequent outbursts of violence and noise. full review
Giggling at the absurdities and inconsistencies is part of the fun. But the talented cast alone will keep you watching, as will the fight scenes. full review
It doesn't do a lot of deep thinking, but unlike many futuristic combos of sf and f/x, it does make a statement: Freedom of opinion is a threat to totalitarian systems. full review
It's a long way from Orwell's dark, intelligent warning cry  to the empty stud knockabout of Equilibrium, and what once was conviction is now affectation. full review
Just because it's a good idea doesn't mean it's easy to do well. full review
Illiterate, often inert sci-fi action thriller.
Equilibrium the movie, as opposed to the manifesto, is really, really stupid. full review
A science-fiction pastiche so lacking in originality that if you stripped away its inspirations there would be precious little left. full review
What it lacks in originality it makes up for in intelligence and B-grade stylishness. full review
If there was a solitary new idea or actual emotion in Equilibrium, the Prozium must have rendered me oblivious. full review
An unsophisticated sci-fi drama that takes itself all too seriously. full review
Silly stuff, all mixed up together like a term paper from a kid who can't quite distinguish one sci-fi work from another.
