Following World War III, emotions are outlawed and ruthless officers called Clerics hunt down offenders. Filmed in 2002, Starring Christian Bale, Sean Bean and other top British actors.

Worth a watch if you're feeling bored.

Great film- especially famous for the fighting sequences using a technique called "Gun Kata".

BTW: I recommend everybody who is interested in watching the film for the first time NOT to watch the "trailer" mentioned above! Good vid, but too much information revealed ;)

They screwed up the marketing on this one big time, trying to pass it off as some sort of Matrix-wannabe, when in fact it is a distinctly Orwellian treat...it is well worth tracking down.

Nice watching, though (understandably) somewhat depressing.

An potentially good movie let down by bad marketing, bad luck and somewhat wooden acting. The idea of the gun-kata is great but the implementation both acting and camera-wise could be better. The movie is in many ways a mix of Fahrenheit 451 and Brave New World.

Cheers,
