    Now it feels almost quaint, like a throwback. You watch it and, despite all the au courant techno geekery on display, you feel like you’ve stepped into a time capsule. It’s a nice feeling at first. If only the movie were better.

    It plays more like a "21 Jump Street," full of pretty people and a thumping soundtrack but offering little in the way of something to say.

    This one is essentially “The Firm” with smartphones.

    Paranoia is ostensibly a thriller, but there’s nothing remotely thrilling about it. This slick, plodding bore is as exciting as watching somebody else tap out text messages.

    However, once you realize there's no "pleasure" to be had from something this wantonly dumb and idiotically constructed, all that's left is "guilt" - guilt that you actually spent money to see this.

    I'm not going to get into the acting, because there's not much of it, frankly. No one is embarrassingly bad; no one is exceptionally good.

    Paranoia’s twitchiness is like an actual twitch: it’s contrived and clunky, and you forget it in an instant.

I can't defend this movie againstGoing against many other reviews, I will now say that this movie was, in my own personal opinion, worth it. I can't defend this movie against the accusations of being clichéd and unoriginal, because it IS. It really is and it's PREDICTABLE. I could see how the movie ended almost right after it started. Yet, I still found myself watching, which I guess means I am easily entertained. It honestly wasn't as bad as I thought it would be. It was actually pretty good, in my OPINION. I actually liked the acting in the film.

    If you liked this review (or if you didn't, you can still) read my other work on a wide variety of movies, TV shows, and videogames and mark this review as helpful. Remember, every vote counts!

The development is really poor, the script is bad, and the performances are really terrible (Gary Oldman and Harrison Ford do a great job, the problem is that the script is so bad, and they try to do all the possible to do something good). Paranoia is a box of good ideas but poorly executed. Expand

    From one of the greatest books come one of the worst movies I've ever had the displeasure of watching.
    Why was the book so much better?

    Well, once again they went and changed the story of the book for the movie version. Made it incredibly generic and dull. There's nothing to like about the story and any person with a pen could have thought of such a basic and predictable plot.
    I really respect Joseph Finder. The paranoia book was an incredibly great read.
    The movie...those are minutes of my life that I wish I could have back.
