It's slickly directed by Robert Luketic even though it's all pretty unbelievable. But in fact I rather enjoyed it.

With a strong cast and striking production values, this thriller is sleek enough to hold our interest even if corporate espionage isn't a very exciting topic for the movies.

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.

The twists are inevitable, the turns come from a mile away, but a surprisingly charming and humble Hemsworth becomes a reliable interface for the old mechanics.

A corporate thriller that offers juicy roles for Harrison Ford and Gary Oldman. Not terribly original but entertaining.

If there's nothing hideously embarrassing about Paranoia, there's nothing really right either.

Director Robert Luketic [does] nothing beyond his contractual obligations (which presumably read, "Um, make a movie, I guess").

Paranoia is professional in every way, but there's no pulse to it. It is entirely adequate, livened up only by a few supporting turns.

It's a premise that stands or falls on the tense fate of a charismatic lead and dialogue that does not clang right off the screen; a woeful lack of both ensures Paranoia more than falls -- it collapses.

There's nothing wrong with Paranoia that a stronger director, livelier leading actors and several hundred fewer narrative conveniences wouldn't cure.

This is a film at odds with itself, wanting to be a 99 percenter rallying cry but wallowing in and fetishizing 1 percenter accoutrement at every turn.

Paranoia, a ho-hum thriller about corporate spying in the high-tech world, comes off as a lot more preposterous than paranoid, and it takes no more than a few frames for the eye rolling to commence.

It's rather a slight affair.

A couple of business rivals trying to steal each other's cell phone secrets is just not that gripping to watch unfold, especially when it's anchored by such a dull protagonist.

[A] garbage movie.

Even as a straight-to-DVD release, this would fail to pass muster.

The twists aren't surprising, the perils feel artificial, and even Hemsworth's chest gets a little ho-hum after a while.

Ford gives it the old college try and it's decently paced but it's not enough to elevate it from the muck and mire of a boring script made by an unimaginative director.
