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

At times, there's a lack of understanding about how 20-somethings talk in reality, while many of the film's other lines feel like they could be said by real people, albeit real people who aren't very smart. Or interesting. Or worth listening to.

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

So cliched and tiresome, it could be a minor work of cinemasochistic genius. Also, Harrison Ford appears to be possessed by a necromancer.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/10

Robert Luketic's supposedly down-and-dirty corporate espionage thriller undercuts itself at nearly every turn by shunning any potential relevancy.

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.

A stellar cast does their best to salvage Paranoia, but a serious lack of tension and a bad case of "Predictability-itus" makes Luketic's film nothing but another faceless thriller leaving audiences wanting so much more.
Full Review | Original Score: 5/10

"Paranoia" is not nearly as bad as you may have heard, but it does have a few too many narrative issues holding it back.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5

"Paranoia" should be commended for attempting to give younger audiences something more mature to digest at the movies, but unfortunately once the film hits a dead zone, the reception is lost for good.

There's nothing wrong with Paranoia that a screenplay couldn't have fixed.

It's an entertaining film throughout that shouldn't provoke too much thought.

All things considered this is a movie you enjoy on cable and then probably forget about.

No-one brings anything close to their A-game in this chronically ham-fisted corporate sabotage thriller.

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

Willamette Week
August 21, 2013
Less actively bad than utterly, painfully familiar, the kind of movie that stakes its claims entirely on opening-weekend box-office receipts because those involved know nobody will remember it come Monday.

As a post-financial-crisis movie, Paranoia is muddled at best, wagging its finger at Hemsworth's ambitious bridge-and-tunnel type while fetishizing the life of luxury he cheats his way into.

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.
Full Review | Original Score: 1.5/5

Answers the question nobody was asking: what if the director of Legally Blonde remade The Conversation?

Roger Moore

August 15, 2013
As slow, slick and superficial as the director of "21" and "Killers" can make it.
Full Review | Original Score: 1.5/4

The bland leading man, lack of suspense and tedious panoramic shots of New York create feelings of inertia rather than paranoia.
