Watch On
  1. An inferior factory product, cranked out with little care and less imagination, that seems all the dumber because it's pretending to be smart and topical.
  2. Better than you might expect, if you didn't expect it to be any good.
  3. An unintentional high-tech hoot.
  4. 30
    As a film, it essentially bites.
  5. This compression of logic--coupled with two hours of ham-fisted delivery--guarantees that Antitrust won't jangle your nerves but will intermittently split your sides with laughter.
  6. 30
    Poops out before it ever really gets going.
  7. It's phony and forced, but mostly it's just silly. If there was once a satirical edge to this thriller, it's been programmed right out.

    Libel on one of the true visionaries of American business in the 20th century, a man unfairly demonized for doing what others strove to do but doing it faster and better.

    A crap film that's steeped in liberal paranoia, but it's also so ludicrous that it falls under the guilty-pleasure category.
  10. 20
    A storyline that makes less sense than the current state of tech stocks on the Nasdaq.
  11. It's too bad we don't have red, glowing DELETE buttons next to those soda cup holders. I could have done the world a favor.
  12. 10
    Antitrust is anti-fun, anti-wakefulness, and anti-interesting.
  13. 10
    Gives us good reason to believe that January really is the month Hollywood studios use to bury their cheesiest mistakes.
  14. 0
    Monumentally silly thriller.

    I show this film at the end of the school year to my classes after we talk about monopolies, Anti-trust laws, etc. It gives them a bit of a break at the end of year.
    Every year the high school kids love it, some of them even go and buy it. Haven't heard a complaint about it yet. Also, gotta love Claire Forlani, she is smoking hot in this movie.

What really made me mad was that Ryan Phillippe, Tim Robbins, Rachael Leigh Cook, and Claire Forlani are all great actors/actresses. The film was written horribly and was one of those movies where you think, "Wow, this movie COULD HAVE BEEN really good." But it wasn't, so I rate it a 1. Full Review »
