Quotes

Silas: [propped up on his arm in bed with Nia] I never could have imagined what love felt like. It's... strange... like a tornado going around and...
Nia: Yeah
[laughs shyly, then turns serious]
Nia: That's why I was scared of it at first.
Silas: [nods several times]
Nia: It's about giving. Like, I want you to take everything. I don't even know what it is but I want you to take it from me.
Silas: I just wanna-
[amusedly]
Silas: I wanna run.

Rehashed to hell
25 August 2016 | by (Lisbon, Portugal) – See all my reviews

We shan't be fooled - original ideas, concepts and scripts come by very rarely these days. Over the years I've come to accept that we shall not blatantly blame the creative team for the lack of some originality whether it is on similar premise, plot points, slight clichés, or visual styles. But when the final product is just a lazy mash up all the above, ripped off of arguably better previous films, as well as famed English literature at its most obvious, is just harder to swallow. If you ever watched Kurt Wimmer's Equilibrium and Michael Bay's the Island you have most certainly watched Doremus' Equals.

Pretentiously disguising the outright obvious rehash of ideas of a dystopian society where the inhabitants are deprived of different forms of freedom for the sake of a Utopian perfect society, with slower pacing, contemplating set up shots and heartfelt-advertising- like cinematography, we are left with a most forgetful film that never once introduces a single differentiating or provocative element.
