This wasn't superb, but I did find it entertaining enough to sit all the way through it. Unfortunately, the big reveal at the end was pretty predictable, but the action sequences were well done.

This movie is extremely under rated. It's an excellent movie, THE future of MARTIAL ARTS with Guns. Terriffic concept

The martial-arts sequences take this prosaic thriller to a higher level. Full Review
Dennis Harvey
Misses with its blowhard treatment of a silly, obvious script. Results might hazard "Battlefield Earth" comparison if new pic were a tad more fun. Full Review

If someone left "1984," "Fahrenheit 451," "Brave New World," "Gattaca" and the Sylvester Stallone potboilers "Judge Dredd" and "Demolition Man" out in the sun and threw the runny glop onto a movie screen, it would still be a better picture than Equilibrium, a movie that could be stupider only if it were longer.

Mostly plays like a routine thriller with a classy cast. Full Review

An accidental entertainment, Equilibrium is a science-fiction pastiche so lacking in originality that if you stripped away its inspirations there would be precious little left. Full Review
