A third world war in the early 21st century, threatens to bring mankind to extinction. Realising that war rises out of human emotion, a clan of people develop a medicine, Prozium, which subdues human emotion and makes them robotic and hence curbing war. They belong to Libria. The Tetragammaton Council governs Libria and its law enforcement agencies' only task is to hunt down people who don't take Prozium at regular intervals and hence are termed as 'sense offenders'. John Preston (Bale) is a Cleric of the highest class and is a master of combat. His partner, Errol Partridge (Bean) stopped taking Prozium and was killed by Preston for the crime. Somehow Preston himself stops taking the drug and over a period of time gets convinced that the natural life is the way to live and not the robotic one that he has been leading for so long. The movie has a decent start but becomes hopelessly slow until the end where it once again picks up pace and ends on a high note. The action is definitely Matrix material but becomes a bit too repetitive and does not do much to improve the movies slow pace. Worth watching for the climax, the rest is a long bore.

Thumbs up: Action, climax scene
Thumbs down: Slow

Rating: 6.4/10
