This wannabe thriller about the new techno industry is a misfire.

It won't win any Oscars but it might make 14-year-olds wonder whether it's really worth spending life in front of a screen.

Passably entertaining in spots, but doomed by its bungling of the thriller elements.

A thriller about creativity which doesn't display any of its subject matter.

This thriller in name only is all too characteristic of the cinematic scrap heap that is the first month of the year.

Got a by-the-numbers plot? A premise that's intriguing but also has holes in it? Dialogue that needs punching up? Hire Tim Robbins. He can save just about anything.

...the film remains a cut above its geared-towards-teens thriller brethren...

It's refreshing to see a filmmaker who's well aware of the limitations of his material, someone who can step back and say, 'Hey, this isn't 'Schindler's List': We're just trying to give the audience two hours of corny fun.'

Apesar do fraco roteiro, o filme sobressai-se graças à direção de Howitt, que cria seqüências tensas que prendem o espectador à cadeira.

Anti Trust cluttered my mental hard drive with so much junk mail I now have to reconfigure my alternator modular system with a new Co-axel deeble zip-switch.

My, my, such a high-tech setting -- too bad it's marred by such a low-tech plot.

The climax actually pits Milo against Winston in a typing contest. If that sounds thrilling, this may be the movie you've been waiting for.

About five years behind schedule in anticipating and satirizing the stranglehold computer developers wield over the technology industry.

Antitrust, in other words, suffers from what I call the "Wizard of Oz malady:" no heart, no brain, no courage.

There's not an original note in Howard Franklin's screenplay or Peter Howitt's direction.

Antitrust joins Matrix and The Net as a trilogy of thought-provoking films about the dangers surrounding computer technology.

For much of its life AntiTrust relies on unhysterical thrills that are rooted in a highly credible set-up (a psychological cat-and-mouse game) and keep the audience guessing along with Milo.
