From Amazon.co.uk

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 Dalkin

Not a real film at all. More like therapy for post-op frontal lobotomy patients. (Whether the actors or the viewers, it's hard to say.)

Perfect performances, great dialogue, the actors, writers and director did a good job. The story is decent. This is a must-watch for anyone who loves hi-tech thrillers.

This movie is quite well done. I do believe that it is a thinly veiled shot at Microsoft (a bit of an exaggeration to get the point across that a company that huge can be rather evil). The cast is rather impressive. Tim Robbins, made up to look suspiciously like Bill Gates, was amazing as "Gary Winston," the C.E.O. of N.E.R.V., a software giant only comparable to that of the likes of Microsoft. Ryan Phillippe, plays "Milo Hoffman," a Stanford educated computer geek, who is hired by N.E.R.V. to complete work on the ultimate piece of media software called "Synapse." Milo's girlfriend, played by "Mallrats" veteran Claire Forlani, is rather good in her role. Rachael Leigh Cook, from "She's All That" is amazing too! I think that she gets better in every movie she is in.
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.

I watched Anti-Trust again on TV recently and enjoyed it for the second time. It makes no secret of which real life software company the NURV corporation is based on, which is all part of the entertainment. And in the lead role Tim Robbins dominates as the nerd with an evil streak. I did find the film a little over edited in places, for example the sesame seed curry scene, what happened at the end of this? Also how did the Ryan Phillipe know who to trust in the end? Maybe it was all done to create a twist for the viewer, but a bit of further plot explanation would not have gone amiss. Over all very good though.

I did have this movie on VHS a while ago and wanted to replace it on DVD. It's a tense thriller about computer geniuses, hackers, power and corruption and keeps you on the edge of your seat - and guessing! - all the way through. Ryan Phillippe is a great leading man and Tim Robbins is as brilliant as he always is. It is scary what hackers can do! Definitely worth a watch and definitely at this low cost, worth the money.

We should consider this dates back to 2000. Internet was existing but just. In this perspective the idea is fine, one cannot avoid thinking of Apple and Steve Jobs's visions.
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
