Equilibrium (2002)

No Nudity

Top Scene


While it wasn't the film that invented the so-called "Gun Fu" subgenre of films that meld gunplay with martial arts, Kurt Wimmer's Equilibrium (2002) tends to be the film most folks think of when they hear the phrase. Obviously heavily influenced by The Matrix (1999), the film is set in the year 2072 in the totalitarian country of Libria, established by a group of powerful people after World War III ravaged America in hopes of outlawing emotion, since human emotion is what led to the near mutual destruction of the globe. The citizenry is given a daily injection of a medication that eradicates human emotion, turning everyone into unthinking and unfeeling automatons. A high ranking law enforcement official John Preston (Christian Bale) begins to suspect that his partner (Sean Bean) has gone off his meds and soon gets confirmation, ending with him having to gun down his partner. When Preston himself misses his daily dose of meds, he begins to experience feelings and emotion for the first time in his life—namely regret over killing his partner—leading him to question everything. He must now go on the run, being hunted by an elite enforcer named Brandt (Taye Diggs), and get to the heart of what's really going on in this supposed utopian society. As much as we'd love to tell you that Diggs and Bale strip down a fight their final fight completely nude, this isn't that kind of movie! There are some shirtless scenes from both Christian Bale and Sean Bean, but this film really hammers home the whole dystopian thing by being completely skinless!
