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.

Corporate thrillers just aren't what they used to be.

No-one brings anything close to their A-game in this chronically ham-fisted corporate sabotage thriller.
September 1, 2013
This boardroom blackmail romp feels as contrived and silly as anything Luketic has helmed in recent years.

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.

The movie doesn't make a whole lot of sense and, when it does, it would be better off not doing so.

Fixates on the perils and panic of our modern surveillance culture while itself proving to be borderline unwatchable.

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.

You're not paranoid -- it really is bad.

Paranoia? More like dj vu.
August 16, 2013
While Paranoia has been cast with some top-notch actors, the problem here is a lack of oomph both in the script, adapted from Joseph Finder's novel, and the pretty lame direction by Robert Luketic.
August 16, 2013
Director Robert Luketic's thriller Paranoia has a host of problems, but the biggest seems to be that no one in it is nearly paranoid enough.
August 16, 2013
Slick but muddled thriller about corporate espionage never gets our pulse pounding.
August 16, 2013
There's much sprinting and keyboard-clacking for an audience that might feasibly value the sight of either over the presence of genuine invention or suspense.
August 16, 2013
The film is all thunderous clichs.
August 16, 2013
Here is a film that clearly wants to be a gripping techno-thriller but feels as if it was designed both by and for people who still have not quite figured out how to get their Kindles to work.
August 16, 2013
Why blaze new trails when the old ones are so well-marked? This one is essentially "The Firm" with smartphones.
August 16, 2013
"Paranoia" is a plug-and-play Hollywood thriller, not the best the genre has to offer but hardly the worst.
