Just finished watching Equilibrium, a sci-fi action movie that several guys at work recommended I watch. They said it was reminiscent of the Matrix, but I was sorely disappointed. Think 1984 with some gunfighting kung fu thrown in. The only good moment was when Taye Diggs got his face sliced off in a sword fight. That was pretty cool. Otherwise, the action was sparse, and the plot predictably boring.
One odd moment right now: Christian Bale, the stony faced protagonist in Equilibrium, was the kid in Empire of the Sun. That’s weird. I remember watching that movie when it came out, was it really that long ago?
