Crop And Save
Fascinating and Visceral
Quite an excellent piece of filmmaking, Equilibrium creates an unforgettable experience. Complex and fluid fight sequences, compelling acting, and a frighteningly possible story, the film remains one of the most underrated and overlooked films of 2002.
Taking plot elements from several interesting sources such as Fahrenheit 451 and Minority Report, along with action scenes reminiscent of The Matrix and Hard Boiled, Equilibrium is a highly recommended film, worthy of greater critical and popular attention.
French Connection II (1975)
An Unnecessary Sequel
The French Connection was a great film and stood well enough on its own. Its sequel, therefore, was wholly unnecessary and only served two functions: to further humanise Popeye Doyle and to punish Charnier for escaping at the end of the first film.
This film was about a half hour too long (the first movie clipped along at a good pace) and dragged in certain parts, most notably the withdrawal scene. Admittedly a good film, with an excellent performance from Hackman, The French Connection II serves no narrative purpose other than to satiate an audience upset at the ending of the first movie.
