In a futuristic world, a strict regime has eliminated war by suppressing emotions: books, art and music are strictly forbidden and feeling is a crime punishable by death. Clerick John Preston (Bale) is a top ranking government agent responsible for destroying those who resist the rules. When he misses a dose of Prozium, a mind-altering drug that hinders emotion, Preston, who has been trained to enforce the strict laws of the new regime, suddenly becomes the only person capable of overthrowing it.
Seen it and it is good.
They pushed it hard to sell to the Matrix crowd, right down to the picture on the cover of the video. The coat, the hair style and dramatic poses all identical, just missing the sunglasses. Having borrowed that looks, it then goes on to borrow the story from elsewhere, Fahrenheit 451. It is a lot better than older Fahrenheit 451 film though.
Overall a good outing for Christian Bale, with some very good support the likes of: Sean Bean (wonder if he will ever actually finish a film), Sean Pertweel
