Anti-Trust is a gripping thriller, and although far from being great filmmaking it is at least notable for being about something important and having the will to follow it through. Macro software company NURV, based on a giant "campus" in the Pacific North West and under investigation by the Department of Justice, is planning to launch a proprietary broadband Internet. Ryan Philippe is adequate as the young geek hero, though Tim Robbins dominates the film as CEO Gary Winston, a skilfully cutting interpretation of a power-corrupted software multibillionaire; Gary Sinise offers an equally compelling characterisation. Peter Howitt directs in broad strokes, keeping things exciting if not exactly subtle, while Don Davis' score is alternately suspenseful and overblown. Howard Franklin's screenplay offers surprising plot detail and a couple of good twists while straining credulity with hoary thriller clichés. Nevertheless, the technical stuff is far more accurate than usual, despite the Hollywood compromises. Anti-Trust provides a rallying cry against the global domination of global communications for the profit of the few, the final 15 minutes delivering an uplifting if simplistic wish-fulfilment fantasy.
On the DVD: The Dolby Digital 5.1 sound is highly atmospheric, though the anamorphically enhanced 2.35:1 image is only average, some grain and artefacting letting down the sleek look and elegant design of the film. "Cracking the Code" is a routine 22-minute "making of" documentary, while the audio commentary by director Peter Howitt and editor Zach Staenberg spends a lot of time stating the obvious. --Gary S DalkinSee all Product description

This movie takes some pretty good twists and turns. It boils down to be murder mystery with a little bit of fighting "Big Brother." Generally, I am not a fan of suspense. It annoys me, because generally we always know which way it is heading. "Antitrust" has great suspense. It is never over-the-top. The movie can be rather unpredictable.
This movie is everything that movies like "Hackers" lack. It is obviously not going to be perfect representation of the Information Technology industry, but it is remarkably close (and really, that would was too close it would probably be bad for business). There are no flashy graphics when it comes to how the code and computers are used. Unlike "Hackers," geeks are geeks here; it isn't the rave scene going around playing computer "Robin Hoods." Not to say that there is too much "geek stuff" in the movie, but what is there looks and feels like the real thing.
"Antitrust" is the best tech movie I have ever seen. The cast is perfect. I have watched this DVD probably twenty times and have yet to tire seeing it. I recommend it to everyone I know in IT, and most anyone else too. The movie is top-shelf material.
There are several weaknesses, and as recognised by the Amazon review, this is not great film making. "Milo" in particular is very weak. One wonders about why such a bleak guy is a computer genius. When action starts to swing, then he is more credible.
It is a sort of tale, perhaps 3 starts are too many. Watch and forget. Do not regret if you need to pause viewing fro some reason, you can resume next day.... if you'll remember
