Recent college grad, Milo, is recruited by Gary Winston to join a team of talented programmers working for the dominate software giant. The goal is to finish the code for Winston's satalite uplink system that will allow anyone with a cell phone, computer, or television to communicate in real time across all formats. When Milo's best friend is found murdered while on the verge of an incredible technological breakthrough, Milo begins to suspect that the prestigious company he works for as well as those around him may not be as honorable as he thinks.
Great suspense-thriller that really never got the attention it deserved. Give it a try.
Ryan Phillippe does a commendable job portraying Milo, a young brilliant programmer who is hired by Microsoft-esque corporation NURV. NURV is operated by Gary Winston, a seemingly nice guy who takes an evil turn, played by Tim Robbins who does a fantastic job. Claire Forlani, Rachael Leigh Cook, and even the original Shaft himself Richard Roundtree do nicely in their supporting roles. The best part of all is that this can be a film for all age groups. The profanity isn't over the top, something that seems to be a given in most big time movies today.
Not a cinematic blockbuster or a modern classic, but ANTITRUST is an enjoyable film.
The main disappointment was that many people who saw it either missed the fact that the bad guy was committing murder, and therefore wasn't just a corrupt businessman, or that they thought that everyone involved in open source believes in liberating other people's code, or that they missed that the villain had already committed copyright infringement.
Who shouldn't see this movie: Open source advocates - you'll either feel offended at being portrayed as extremists, or, if you are one, you won't want to pay money to an MPAA movie. Computer programmers - you'll probably end up spoiling the movie for the people around you as you explain that things don't work that way in real life, although at least you can point out that they use Linux on their workstations.
Who should see this movie: People who are related to computer programmers. While they don't get everything right, it's a start at explaining some concepts.

This movie is no more then a pitiful attempt to suggest that businessmen are selfish and corrupt. Ironically the most corrupt character is as selfless possible. Read morePublished on Nov. 5 2003 by Brett
