Sci-fi movie where people believe emotions are evil so people must medicate themselves to not feel or face death.
The fight scenes are awesome and completely not believable, but still very much fun to watch. Beyond that, this movie was predictable and not very exciting.
No one was supposed to have emotions and Christian Bale did a great job with that. When he didn’t have any, he didn’t have any. When he quit taking his medication, he would slowly register something on his face. His partner, Taye Diggs, would smile all over the place even though he had no emotions. Dork!
If you catch it on cable, watch it for the fight scenes. I would also recommend watching with a bunch of other people so you can have a conversation when the fight scenes aren’t on.
