3.0 out of 5 stars Anti-trust, 19 Sept. 2002
This review is from: Antitrust [DVD] [2001] (DVD)
Anti-trust follows the story of garage computer boff Milo Hoffman(Ryan Phillippe-Cruel intentions, studio 54) and his new and exiting job at the worlds most widespread computer software company N.U.R.V.
But Milo, naive and irresponsible to the outcomes of the job finds that the founder of N.U.R.V.,Gary Winston(Oscar nominee Tim Robbins-High Fidelity)and graphics designer Lisa(Rachael Leigh Cook-She's All That, Get Carter Remake)have an unusual interest in him as well as the deaths of other computer wizards including his friend Teddy, cause Milo to rethink his position in N.U.R.V. and his friends perspective of him.
Anti-trust is one of the more daring projects in 2000 with director Peter Howitt(dead Man Walking) having his work cut out for him to level the balance of your average modern thriller and the technical structure of information technology the film,s theme is surrounded by. It can be debateble whether this has been achieved but I myself, hardly able to find the right keys on my laptop, found the film easy going to understand on even a technical level hence it is easy to see in the DVD documentory 'cracking the code',that this was put to much consideration.
The backdrops and props are some of the most lush and eye obsorbing I have sen to date. Producer David Nicksay and production designer Catherine Hardwick have put both budget and CGI technology to great yet not essentual use which intensefies and creates a cleverly trendy experience for the younger audiance.
Actor Ryan Phillippe's performance was somewhat surprizingly good and Tim Robbins as the rather over the top, almost ludicraus Gary Winston, Claire Forlani and gorgeous Rachael Leigh Cook help solidate the overall performance of the film.
Though hard for so many to relate to in an age where computer technology is not that cool(Even though the Everclear song "When It All Goes Wrong Again" tries hard to promote), Anti-Trust delivers a performance that I can't see being executed in a better way and even though not the most memorable of films, the contraversal message within can be enjoyable aknowlegded.
Note:Check out the unfortunatly yet justifiably deleted scenes.

So, now that you have revealed the plot, told much of the storyline, what point is there in an interested party viewing the film? I get so tired of would-be Hollywood reviewers using amazon to exhibit there so-called knowledge of movie producers, actors, and films. If you cannot refrain yourselve from just giving an overview of the film then please get a job with a newspaper or magazine.
