I agree with the other reviewers. The promo looked great, it had a brilliant cast, the plot looked good and relevant to the times we live in... It's just such a let down. I can't believe I'm writing that about a film starring Harrison Ford and Gary Oldman. Both great actors who have starred in some fantastic films.

The film lacks tension and suspense, any depth to the plot, and I was sat there wondering if they'd aimed it a 12 years olds?! I groaned inside at the romantic moments, there's no chemistry between Liam Hemsworth and Amber Heard. They don't develop any of the relationships in the film, everything is totally superficial. There's no depth to the characters at all. I would summarise the film as pretty cheesy. It could have been so good, instead it's just bad!!

This is like a masterclass in how not to write and direct a movie. It lacks the clarity required to be suspenseful - which is surprising considering how much "Irving the Explainer" we get, along with characters continually telling each other what they already know - and the scenes are like outtakes from a bad '90s pop video. At the halfway point I realized that I really didn't care what happened to any of the characters, despite the writers' increasingly desperate cat-saving attempts to make me root for the young leads. I'd give it less than 1 star if that were possible.

Adam Cassidy (Liam Hemsworth) is a bright young man and he is trying to sell his employer, Nicolas Wyatt (Gary Oldman), an idea that he and his techie friends and colleagues have come up with. Wyatt, however, is rude and indifferent, and fires them all. Cassidy is now in a financial fix as there is no insurance to cover the latest medical treatment for his father (Richard Dreyfuss) and when he is later approached by wily Wyatt with an offer he really cannot refuse - to infiltrate the company of Jock Goddard (Harrison Ford) and steal the latest thing to be marketed by that company - Cassidy takes the opportunity to get rich. However, Wyatt and Goddard were once partners who now wage a technological war against each other and Cassidy is just a pawn in the game.

How can Paranoia (2013), a movie starring actors of the calibre of Gary Oldman, Richard Dreyfuss, and Harrison Ford, appear to be so teen-flicky? It all feels rather superficial and the romantic scenes between Liam Hemworth and Amber Heard just make it worse - I felt like I'd slipped into the Twilight zone. Yet the idea behind the plot is actually quite decent (despite the plot being riddled with holes) and actually ends with an unexpected result, like a damp squib that should have been a cracker. Not sure just how convincing the corporate machinations and technological devices are (even though I am pretty sure we are all being watched, monitored, and spied upon at some point or other - at least in the UK) but it's an entertaining enough movie if your expectations are really low. The cinematography is good and Gary Oldman is great although why the hell he and Harrison Ford would take a part in this film is beyond me. Didn't they read the script?

The Film lacks any 'Paranoia' but if they had renamed it something else then the film would be rated better. A good business war film with a strong cast, its only let down is the wrong name that gives you false expectations. Its like Anti-Trust and tells an interesting story. Don't expect any on your seat thriller tension as this is lacking but there are a few twists you don't see coming along with a few you did.

I have just watched this film and really enjoyed it, despite the mostly negative reviews I have read. To be honest I don't tend to read much into reviews and make my own mind up. What makes this film look bad to the eye is the DVD cover. I know we have our young good looking star on the front taking up most of the space, but he is not a very good actor if I am honest. That's the issue these days that it all goes by how good the person looks not what really matters, which is the acting. All this pretty boy nonsense gets up my hooters and all the waltzing around with your top off or nothing but bath towel on, low around the hips. Please, it's boring and childish. The film it's self has a good story and Gary Oldman and Harrison Ford are very good as you would expect. Ford in particular gives a great bad guy performance and gets his teeth into the role, but he should be in the film more. On the whole then this movie is a bit sloppy but holds up well so I would recommend you don't get paranoid about its bad rap, and watch it.

A good film, especially if you are a fan of Amber Heard, one that can be watched more than once.

The ending is by far the worst part of the movie. It started off well but between Gary Oldman's odd "cockney" accent and Harrison Ford trying to play a bad guy (doesn't work on him).. it just got a bit too much. Also - Amber Heard is one of the worst actresses I've seen recently. Only watch if there's nothing else on.
