    It's a kick to see the Tim Robbins version of the man recently described by the Microsoft trial judge as "Napoleonic" installed in a disgustingly opulent Bond-villain HQ/pad, and the overwrought Boiler Room-meets-The Game scenario is not without its own schlocky pleasures.

    I do wish Mr. Robbins's one-note co-stars had been worthy of his performance, and that some of the melodramatics hadn't been quite so slapdash.
  3. It is ultimately more routine than provocative, despite the timeliness and seriousness of the issues it raises.

    It's hooey, but it's hooey that picks up in the second half, not exactly redeeming itself but fitfully engaging.
  5. While Robbins has a good time playing the boyish devil, the rest of the principals transmit on an awfully low baud rate.

    An example of a film that begins with a provocative idea and then runs itself into the ground with clumsy structuring.
  7. Ironically, the filmmakers seem to think the audience for this movie about super-smart people is super-dumb.

    They might have been able to make a nice little thriller out of Antitrust if they'd kept one eye on the Goofy Meter.
  9. Taps into a fear hitherto unexplored by cinema: fear of Bill Gates.

    Robbins is such a live wire that he's able to jumpstart his co-stars whenever they're interfacing onscreen.
  11. The plot of Antitrust is intricate and uneven, overloaded with twists and not very jolting surprises.

    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 »
