Equilibrium (2002) Poster


Angus Macfadyen: Dupont



  • DuPont : Be careful Preston. You're treading on my dreams.

  • DuPont : And you, Preston, the supposed savior of the resistance, are now its destroyer, and, along with them, you've given me yourself... calmly... coolly... entirely without incident.

    John Preston : [Polygraph machine scribbling rapidly]  No.

    [Polygraph suddenly registers Preston completely in control] 

    Polygraph Technician : Oh... Shit.

    John Preston : Not without incident.

  • [last lines] 

    DuPont : Wait! Wait! Look at me. Look at me. I'm life. I live... I, I breathe... I feel. Now that you know it... can you really take it? Is it really worth the price?

    [Preston sees a flash of Mary's face] 

    John Preston : I pay it gladly.

  • DuPont : You really should learn to knock.

  • DuPont : The gun katas. Through analysis of thousands of recorded gunfights, the Cleric has determined that the geometric distribution of antagonists in any gun battle is a statistically predictable element. The gun kata treats the gun as a total weapon, each fluid position representing a maximum kill zone, inflicting maximum damage on the maximum number of opponents while keeping the defender clear of the statistically traditional trajectories of return fire. By the rote mastery of this art, your firing efficiency will rise by no less than 120%. The difference of a 63% increase to lethal proficiency makes the master of the gun katas an adversary not to be taken lightly.

  • [first lines] 

    DuPont : In the first years of the 21st century, a third World War broke out. Those of us who survived knew mankind could never survive a fourth; that our own volatile natures could simply no longer be risked. So we have created a new arm of the law: The Grammaton Cleric, whose sole task it is to seek out and eradicate the true source of man's inhumanity to man - his ability to feel.

  • DuPont : It is not the will of the Council, it is the will of Father and he is law.

    John Preston : Sir... without the logic of process, is it not just mayhem - what we have worked so hard to eradicate?

    DuPont : You must understand, Preston, that while you - and even I - may not always agree with it,it is not the message that is important, it is our obedience to it. Father's will. Call it faith. You have it, I assume?

    John Preston : Yes. I have it.

    DuPont : Good.

  • John Preston : You're absolutely 100% right, sir.

    DuPont : Of course I am.
