  • Ultimately, Equals fails because Silas and Nia aren’t all that much more interesting as a romantic couple than they are as zombie-like individuals. show more

  • For high-concept melodrama that's low on complexity, this very solemn film takes itself way too seriously. But it's not entirely without interest, thanks to sleek visuals and decent chemistry between alluring leads Nicholas Hoult and Kristen Stewart. show more

  • Equals just about passes muster as a solid vignette of love against the odds, but when it comes to futurism, its vision is dustily archaic. show more
