Equilibrium (2002, Christian Bale, Emily Watson)



In the near future, following WWIII, the population of the nation of Libria must take the expression-suppressant Prozia II to suppress the emotions their ruler (Angus Macfadyen) believes caused the war. To prevent violation of the law, enforcement officers called Grammatons punish anyone that shows signs of emotion.

But when one of them (Christian Bale) forgets his dose, the scales fall from his eyes and he discovers a rebel group who have kept art and literature alive. But they are under threat; can he help them survive? Kurt Wimmer’s sci-fi film is, like Fahrenheit 451 , concentrates primarily on raising moral and ethical issues, although there are also spectacular Gun-Kata fights.
