The A.V. Club - Nathan Rabin
A terrific cast, stylish direction, and elegantly choreographed mayhem help make it far better than it might have been -- Though ultimately silly, Equilibrium's shopworn but stylish synthesis of ammo and ideas is surprisingly engrossing.

USA Today - Claudia Puig
The martial-arts sequences take this prosaic thriller to a higher level.

New York Post - Jonathan Foreman
The best thing about Equilibrium is its impressive look. Along with its generally fine cast and some well-choreographed fights, that goes a long way to making the movie watchable -- despite its underlying stupidity.

Seattle Post-Intelligencer - Sean Axmaker
A preachy parable stylized with a touch of John Woo bullet ballet.

New York Daily News - Jami Bernard
Mostly plays like a routine thriller with a classy cast.
