Aussie director Robert Luketic's clever fingerprints are all over the film, with its dictating pace, well maintained tension - but above all, his flair for casti
Not an original bone in its body -- but there's always something to be said for a great cast.
A corporate thriller that offers juicy roles for Harrison Ford and Gary Oldman. Not terribly original but entertaining.
| Original Score: 3/5
passable as a piece of disposable movie star pulp
| Original Score: 2.5/5
"Paranoia" is not nearly as bad as you may have heard, but it does have a few too many narrative issues holding it back.
So cliched and tiresome, it could be a minor work of cinemasochistic genius. Also, Harrison Ford appears to be possessed by a necromancer.
| Original Score: 2/10
This is a tedious turkey of the first order. As well as being supremely dull, the film does no favours for feminism - or what's left of it - as far as film roles go.
| Original Score: 1/5
Excruciating dialogue is only the tip of the iceberg of this film's dunderheadedness, but it's the sin that keeps on giving throughout the way too many 108 painful minutes it takes to get through it.
| Original Score: 1.5/5
Would have been fine as a simple, slickly-produced TV movie, but with Ford and Oldman in the cast it can't be considered anything but a big-screen letdown.
| Original Score: C
Answers the question nobody was asking: what if the director of Legally Blonde remade The Conversation?
| Original Score: 2/5
A proficient thriller but there is little individuality: it feels as though we have seen this all before
Forgettable and generic...
| Original Score: 2/4
This boardroom blackmail romp feels as contrived and silly as anything Luketic has helmed in recent years.
| Original Score: 4/10
If there's anything most conspicuously in short supply in this thriller it's a strong sense of exactly that, paranoia.
...the denouement...has no relationship with what has gone before. Junkie XL's music builds tension and, believe me, this movie needs it because the story is so weak.
In a movie about a new generation's hunger to topple the old guard, pretty boy Hemsworth is outclassed by his veteran costars, who get more mileage from baring their teeth than he does baring his chest.
How did they take Joseph Finder's good novel and make a lackluster film with a super cast? Go figure!
| Original Score: 5/10
a flabby congealed thing that is in no way helped by lackluster direction and a derivative script
Bolstered by a bland by a lead performance by Liam Hemsworth, Paranoia gives no reason for audiences to look over their shoulder, but plenty of them to keep an eye on their watches.
The inert techno-thriller Paranoia is much like watching an app download on a weak Internet connection -- slow and tedious, it seems to take forever.
