Christian Bale is friggen legit in this movie. He plays John Preston who's a government agent who wipes out "sense offenders," people who feel in a world where feeling is not allowed. But the final body-count is not made solely on these people. Eventually, Christian Bale's character is badass and stoked on puppies all at the same time.
The concept is somewhat unoriginal but entertaining nonetheless and its got lots of neato characters and fight scenes that make it very very interesting.
Between all the whoop-ass C.B is dishing out, there are some very beautiful and touching scenes that may certainly make you tear up. And the fact that the sexiest man alive is in them makes them even better.
Equilibrium is a good movie because you watch this guy change and become more. You root for him the whole time and as he learns, you kind of learn too.. as corny as that sounds. But seriously it definitely has a good message in the movie that people need to be reminded of.
