    It galls me that Hollywood thinks we're shallow enough to swallow this swill. Or am I just being paranoid? show more

    San Francisco Chronicle

    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. show more

    It plays more like a "21 Jump Street," full of pretty people and a thumping soundtrack but offering little in the way of something to say. show more

    Hemsworth, who is Gale Hawthorne in "The Hunger Games" and the brother of the Hemsworth who stars as "Thor", has maybe one arrow in his acting quiver - he can look engaged. show more

    Paranoia’s twitchiness is like an actual twitch: it’s contrived and clunky, and you forget it in an instant. show more

    Stephen Farber The Hollywood Reporter

    The filmmakers may have hoped to make a timely commentary on the amorality in our executive suites, but they end up merely restating the obvious. Maybe the whole thing would have played better as a corporate comedy, the kind that Doris Day and Rock Hudson made some 50 years ago. show more

    Frankly, no one in this ensemble is done any favors by Jason Hall and Barry Levy’s screenplay, a “Duplicity” for dummies filled to the brim with double-crossing cliches. show more

    Bill Zwecker Chicago Sun-Times

    The actors do their best. The problem here is simply a formulaic screenplay and less-than-inspired direction. show more

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

    Connie Ogle Miami Herald

    Paranoia has a promising foundation — betrayal, danger and corporate espionage are solid building blocks of suspense. But the movie turns out to be more exasperating than exciting. show more

    This movie was OK, but not great.

    If you are paranoid you are going to be wasting 10 bucks when you go see this movie, you got it right this time. Unless you really need a distraction from having absolutely nothing else to do, wait for the DVD. Nothing gained by seeing this on the big screen; ho hum. No big deal here.

    What a surprise! We loved every moment. Kept moving and made you keep guessing what was next. Strong cast and lived up to their reputation. I know it doesn\'t have the shoot em up scenes or robots that 9 out of 10 movies today has but I highly recommend it. A hidden gem.
