Most Bizarre Hollywood Dystopias
Similar to 1984, Equilibrium takes place in a future controlled by government, this time through the use of chemicals that eliminate normal human emotion. The law is enforced by a group of gun wielding super soldiers who employ a martial art called Gunkata to get the greatest number of kills in the shortest amount of time.As in 1984, the world of Equilibrium begins as a utopia if you cant think for yourself, the system must seem rather nice. Follow the rules and a mediocre, pleasant life awaits. Its when that seed of rebellion takes root in the mind that the world turns ugly.
