3.0 out of 5 stars PG 13 says it all I'm afraid!, 24 Nov 2013
This review is from: Paranoia [DVD] (DVD)
The excellent premise gets off to a decent start with Hemsworth being forcefully recruited to undertake some corporate espionage on behalf of company boss Wyatt (ably played by a repellant Gary Oldman). The picture has a glossy feel to it, the locations, casting and cinematography are excellent, sadly though the script offers no tension or suspense and there are very few thrills on offer. Harrison Ford plays the other corporate big wig but has very little to do and the whole affair is a bit tepid really. Rather than a grand finale where our hero uses his guile to get the better of both these corporate sharks, it just sort of fizzles out in a fairly predictable and pedestrian way. It's not a bad movie, it just isn't an exciting one. I've read the book twice and remember being gripped by it, although it too has a rather flat ending. Meh!
