Equilibrium (2002)

Set in the futuristic city-state of Libria, after a third World War a totalitarian state rose up to get rid of everything that causes emotion and the people who use them. When high ranking Grammaton Cleric John Preston accidentally breaks his vial of Prozium, ceasing to take his dose, he begins to feel while finding it difficult not to show it in front of his son and his partner Brandt. He ends up falling in love with Mary, a woman that was arrested for sense-offense and feels remorse for killing his former partner Errol Partridge. He eventually helps the leaders of the resistance movement known as The Underground to take down a figurehead known as "Father". In the same style of action as The Matrix, an interesting science fiction story; the fight scenes especially are extraordinary. Starring Christian Bale, Taye Diggs, Emily Watson, Sean Bean, Angus Macfadyen, William Fichtner 7/10
