I have to agree with Jonna,
Equilibrium is a far superior film to the Matrix.. Matrix was too hyped and too hollywood.. it kind of reminded me of the police academy movies when they first came out, the first was pretty funny (at the time), second was slightly worse (with exception of Zed) and the third was appauling.. The film started out good but built up to a limp collapse, fell asleep in the cinema watching the third.
This movie shot itself in the foot by using the tagline on the front cover that said, "Better than the Matrix". "Equilibrium has only one aspect in common with "The Matrix" and that is the use of martial arts.

I don't recall Keanu wearing white in the Matrix which Bale does for the latter part of the movie?

EQ was a brilliant film. Low budget but fun and shows Christian Bale as the rising star he is. He can act and do all the stunts too, not many actors can act and do action at the same time.
Look at Dog Soldiers another Brit/Euro US funded indie film. yet i think it was an excellent film.
