'Equals' is a pretty mashup of every dystopian movie you've ever seen

It's almost unfair to judge "Equals" as a movie - it feels more like a visual song. Despite genuine feeling and stunning images, there's just not much to the film. Its story is thin, and what little of it there is steals from a million different places ("1984," "The Giver," "Her," "Romeo and Juliet" - you name it). Nothing, not even a supposed twist late in the game, is surprising because we've seen it all before.
