Equilibrium Thoughts  

Well, first of all the clip above shows my favorite line in the movie. When the guns get turned around on them and he manages to yell 'FUCK' before his untimely death. I really could not contain my laughter. Overall, this movie was better than I thought it would be. I'm surprised I had never heard of it before, but it definitely got shadowed by all the hype Matrix got around the same time. I do think it had a good story but just doesn't compare to the glitz and high tech special effects of Matrix.

I also really loved the scenes with the puppy, oh the feeling!!!

That being said, I'm glad this movie was introduced to me and my boyfriend and my dad BOTH watched this with me, so that's saying something. Sometimes it's hard to get multiple members of the family to agree on a movie to watch. I do think my brother would have enjoyed it as well (but I think I forgot to ask him to join us, oops).

I'm really happy that you enjoyed the movie - it's one of my fave's of all time.

And you are totally right about it being hidden away by The Matrix coming out. I just love the story in this though - kinda like 1984 and the Matrix mixed together.

I'd say my favourite scene was just about any of the fight scenes. They are really intense. The first time we see Bale slide through the doorway and shoot out the lights, waiting in a darkened room...then goes crazy! Or when him and the leader guy are fighting and the guns are getting fired every time they are almost in line with each others face...I'd never seen such amazing gun fights before, or ever will again probably.

As for his son...do you think he was on the medicine all the way or do you think he'd stopped like his dad? Like the way he reacts to his sister playing with her breakfast or his reaction to his father checking his medicine supply at bedtime. I reckon the wee dude was off the pills too but couldn't let his dad know, even although he suspected his dad of the same thing anyway.

Such a deep movie :)

I believe he said he stopped taking the pills after they too his mom...

ooh. yeah. i never really thought of what would trigger him to stop them. his mum being taken is definitely what it would have been. i was just thinking that the sister is probably off them too.

The kids had their pills hidden somewhere didn't they and they showed them to their Dad towards the end of the film? I remember thinking the boy was going to shop Bale all the way through till the end. Me and David thought he seemed like a little sh*t.

I missed it when it was at the cinema too and much prefer it to The Matrix.
