In a world where unseen enemies can watch your every move, who can you trust? Ryan Phillippe (Cruel Intentions), Rachael Leigh Cook (She's All That), Claire Forlani (Meet Joe Black) and OscarÂ(r) winner* Tim Robbins star in this fast-paced, sizzling thriller that crackles with "genuine intrigue (Entertainment Today), "considerable suspense" and an "ingenious, stunningly cinematic payoff" (Los Angeles Times) you have to see to believe! Young, brilliant computer whiz Milo Hoffman (Phillippe) lands an exciting and lucrative job at the world's largest computer company, NURV. Handpicked by powerful C.E.O. Gary Winston (Robbins) to work on a project that will change the way the world communicates, Milo thinks he's found his dream job. But whenhis best friend, Teddy, is brutally murdered and clues lead to NURV's involvement, Milo becomes obsessed with uncovering the truth. With his cunning and beautiful girlfriend (Forlani) and a sexy programmer (Cook) to help him, Milo races to beat Teddy's murderers at their own cyber game. But as theyclose in on him, he realizes he may be too late to learn the most important code of all: Keep your friends close. Keep your enemies closer. And know which are which before you're killed. *2003: Supporting Actor, Mystic River

4.0 out of 5 stars I Know what Tim Robbins Did Last Summer April 18, 2001
Format:VHS Tape
Ryan Phillippe acquits himself credibly as genius geek who gets his big break working for a Bill Gates wannabe, played by Tim Robbins. The biggest problem, going in, is open source versus commercialism. As the flick begins, Milo's (Phillippe's character) biggest dillemma is sorting out open-source Anarchism from Capitalist wage-slave (albeit elite) seduction.
While Milo makes the "wrong" choice, it propels him into the storyline of this movie. Slowly we see that Robbins would put a James Bond villain to shame. Eventually, Milo figures that out, too. Don't worry about being too slow to pick up what's going on, the major plot is spelled out so that even the most clueless jock can keep track.
Some interesting cinematic devices are used (notice the digital art during a climactic sequence) and the actors compel us to take part in the story. Plenty of clues forshadow important plot elements, so viewers may feel smarter than they really are as they predict what will happen next. For the real propellor heads, actual HTML & BASH codes are used. Massive Attack's "Angel" fits perfectly into a key dramatic moment.
How much longer can Tim Robbins go on playing charismatic psychopaths without getting typecast?
Four stars for plot, four stars for revealing the plot, four stars for acting. Overall, a great Friday night entertainment flick. Won't win any awards, but who cares? It's fun.

Antitrust: Opposing or intended to regulate business monopolies, such as trusts or cartels, especially in the interest of promoting competition. (Webster's) This movie gets you thinking. Sure, the plots could be better, the actors more aware, and the screenplay more intense and elaborate, but the movie really poses some good, inspiring roles and questions human behavior in capatalism. "How many will be altruistic, and how many will make billions off of your generosity?" Enron, WorldCom, and Tyco CEO's and directors were brought down by insider whistle blowers just like Milo Hoffman (Phillippe). The movie gives a realistic portrayal of some CEO's tricks of how to keep from being caught, and what it ultimately means if you decide to blow the whistle on them.
"You're a one or a zero, alive or dead." In the binary computer world of business, Gary Winston (Robbins) is trying to capitalize on other's inventions and knowledge, as well as their time, money, and careers, to further his profits and control within and without his company NURV. Robbins does a fine job with his part, and looks the part as well (Similar look in the film to Bill Gates, as intended.) The story is played out in a pleasing way, and grabs your attention after the introductory period, about 25 minutes long, and goes until the last minute or so. The story is real to life, and the actors try (and fail at points) to fully ingage their interest and full ability into their roles. Peter Howitt did a great job in deciding which scenes to keep and which to discard from the theatrical version, as seen in the commentary on the DVD. The use of directors from James Bond films, and The Matrix helped the aesthetics of the film as well.
Overall, it is a good film that can be seen again, and is worth your time.

Did the characters seem believable in this movie? Let's see- Ryan Phillippe, the ultimate "pretty boy" playing a computer genius, come on! Still, if you can keep from focusing on certain details and just watch this movie for its entertainment value, this is a good film.
The themes throughout the movie speak about important topics such as using talents for good instead of just working for material purposes and other ethical questions. I found the storyline about how computer information should be made readily available to everyone instead of a tool for monopolistic individuals (Bill Gates, definitely!) quite intriguing I do not really believe any of the events that took place could actually happen, but the object of must stories in books or movies is to create a fictional setting and have compelling characters, creative storytelling, etc. unless the events are based on actual events. I would compare this movie to WESTWORLD where the technological advances are beyond present day capabilities, but most aspects of present day society are similar to those of the late twentieth century/ early twenty-first century. I found the movie suspenseful and couldn't stop watching it until I got to the end. I cannot give the same approval to the majority of movies being made now.

3.0 out of 5 stars I like it! November 29, 2004
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Okay it's not Oscar material but it's a nice thriller to watch on a Saturday afternoon. Computer freaks and even non freaks will like it. It's not over your head material and the basic story is greed. In this case someone is killing people to get to the top of the heap. Of course if the killer can get you to work for him then you have a chance of staying alive. Gary Winston (Tim Robbins) is trying to build a global network but his genius comes at a high price.

Like I said, it's not Oscar material. This film may take itself too seriously at times but it's okay.

3.0 out of 5 stars fun cyber thriller July 6, 2001
"Antitrust" is yet another in an increasingly long line of cyber-techno thrillers designed to scare the be-Jesus out of the paranoiacs among us - particularly those who fear that computer technology provides the perfect tool for ending personal privacy as we know it. Certainly, "Enemy of the State" remains as the high watermark of the genre, but "Antitrust's attempt to cope with some of the same themes, albeit on a somewhat smaller scale, yields some impressive results.
Like most movies made in the capitalistic US of A, "Antitrust" seems oddly derisive and suspicious of the corporate-world mentality. Thus, we are not really surprised to find that this film, like so many others, demonizes the entrepreneurial spirit as it glorifies youthful virtue and ingenuity. Tim Robbins plays a dark version of Bill Gates, an overgrown computer geek who has parleyed his nerdishness into a multi-billion dollar software monopoly. Here again we have a successful business executive portrayed as a nefarious single-minded villain up against the morally virtuous youthful genius, Milo, played by a bland Ryan Phillipe.
Given the predictability of the premise, "Antitrust" scores as a generally effective thriller thanks to its many genuinely impressive plot twists and turns and its ability to generate suspense in a number of crucial scenes. The film manages to keep us guessing at every turn. Like Milo, we are never entirely sure whom we can and cannot trust. And Robbins provides such a crafty villain - part Machiavellian genius, part emotionally stunted adolescent - that he rivets our attention in any scene in which he happens to appear. This is more than can be said for Milo, who as a central figure and heroic protagonist, fails to engage our interest to any great extent.
