Equilibrium (2002)

In a future where freedom is outlawed, outlaws will become heroes.

In a dystopian future, a totalitarian regime maintains peace by subduing the populace with a drug, and displays of emotion are punishable by death. A man in charge of enforcing the law rises to overthrow the system.

Set in an Orwellian Dystopian future after a nasty world war 3 in the early part of the 21st century. The population are forced to take drugs that suppress their emotions. You see emotions causes conflict and war.
However some people exhibit emotions by not taking the medicine. They want to listen to music, experience their senses by seeing artwork, read books or having pets.
These people are exterminated by clerics, an elite hit squad. Christian Bale is the best of the clerics but once he stops taking his medicine, he feels for the first time and gets into contact with a resistance group to overthrow the leader.
Filmed in Berlin, Equilibrium comes across like an updated version of Fahrenheit 451 but feels too much like a knockoff of The Matrix with a rather a sterile narrative at the beginning which made it rather uninvolving.
Bale's behaviour is so odd once he stops taking the drugs, he should just had been caught and shot.
