*** [[spoiler: When he's surrounded in the end in {{DuPont}}'s office and being taunted at the same time, but there's a close up of his face displaying a confident half-smile before he brutally massacres the mooks. He knows exactly what he's doing and he's determined to see it through, practically laughing in the face of danger and the bullshit that {{DuPont}} is saying. Now that's badass.]]

* Just about every fight John Preston gets into in ''{{Equilibrium}}'' radiates awesome but the winner is easily his fight against [[spoiler:Chancellor [=DuPont=]. [[GunKata At a range of two feet]]]].

*** My favourite awesome moment from the [[spoiler: Hall of Mirrors was the way he fluidly flipped an assault rifle several hundred degrees in the air and started firing, a shot of the film from within the office depicting him standing amongst the bodies still holding the rifle afterwards.]]

** The moment when John Preston, his dedication to the current order visibly wavering, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IrJOF7jhgAQ finally makes up his mind.]] He looks up, determination in his eyes, and hits the barrels of the guns pointing at him. The guns spin in midair, he grabs the handles, and blasts the mooks in the heads. That moment is the definition of awesome, and the (short and brutal) fight that follows only augments the awesomeness.

*** Favourite confrontation. Best part: ''the somersault off the motorcycle'', simultaneously shooting two sweepers opposite each other while he was ''upside down in the air''. Even better: No strings were used in the entire movie. This stunt guy used a trampoline for this scene.

* Let's just say that the entirety of ''Equilibrium'''s soundtrack is awesome, because of how well it sets that dark, tragic mood, alongside a few tracks that have a religious choral backing. Not to mention an all-out kick-ass action part, specifically near the end.

** And just before ''that'' when he goes into a [[spoiler:gunfight against many {{Mook}}s. Tosses two magazines into the hallway. Goes in guns blazing. Empties the first pair of mags, bends his wrists, and gets new magazines from devices in his sleeves. Empties them. Sticks the guns down on the two things he threw out, which were magazines weighted to stand up straight. Empties them. Drops the guns and grabs a dropped assault rifle. Kills the rest of the {{Mook}}s. Drops the assault rifle. Walks into the office, gets surrounded by {{Elite Mook}}s with katanas. Takes one from one of them and kills them all with it. That's something like 30 kills, all with four individual weapons, only two of which he walked in with.]]

Added DiffLines:

**** Actually, no, it wasn't all for [[spoiler:the puppy]]. If he would not have killed them, they would have gone back and reported [[spoiler:his sense crime]] to their superiors. Yes, he [[spoiler:did a sense offence]] BECAUSE of [[spoiler:the puppy]], but that's not why he killed the mooks.
