Equilibrium

Equilibrium is a 2002 science fiction film starring Christian Bale. This is a new take on themes from Huxley's Brave New World and Orwell's 1984. I'm glad I've seen it, but there's nothing new here.

Youtube has it online divided into 11 sections. Part 1:

part 2, part 3, part 4, part 5, part 6, part 7, part 8, part 9, part 10, part 11

Moria says it "proved a considerable hit in European release, although was barely seen in the US, and has since gained a small cult reputation" but that it disappoints, seeming "no more than a collection of clich├ęs from just about every Dystopian science-fiction film and book ever made". The New York Times calls it "pretty silly stuff".
