help me LJ one kanobi, you're my only hope...

SO a few months (a year or two?) after The Matrix came out, there was another movie that had a similar... aesthetic? target audience? something.
The poster for it has an assassin type guy wearing white gloves and two pistols. I read a penny-arcade review of it and decided it was worth seeing.
I have literally been trying to remember the name of this movie off and on for YEARS now.

Anyone?

EDIT: Equilibrium. Thanks folks!

equilibrium? i definitely remember penny arcade's review making it sound worth seeing.

not as good as the matrix, and has one slightly cringe-inducing central conceit, but fun, decent sci-fi action.

The Thirteenth Floor? Probably not, though that too was quite Matrix-y.

Because of the Baleathon, I'm sure it's Equilibrium that you're thinking of. It did well in Europe but not so well here. It's a pretty good movie, worth checking out. If only because, well, Christian Bale and Taye Diggs are beautiful people.

We have Equilibrium at home, you're welcome to borrow it. It's one of my favorites :) Very distopian. =)Also, the Gun Fu is AWESOME.

Also, there's a bizarre Matrix-clone called "eXistenZ" http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0120907/
