5.0 out of 5 stars Made me think... July 9 2004
Format:DVD
I've watched movies like Hackers(dont bother), Takedown(decent), Swordfish(omg no), but this one is my favorite. Its about a corporation that has a global monopoly (much like microsoft). They observe programmers that have potential and kill them if needbe. Well, one of the newly hired programmers finds this out. A very good movie, I recommend you watch it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Antitrust June 23 2004
Format:DVD
This movie was out in the theater for a few weeks before I finally gave in and went to see it. I originally tried to shy away from this because of the obvious "teen-appeal", but sometimes I can't help myself when it comes to computer geek movies. As it turns out, I enjoyed this emmensly and consider this a fast-paced techno-thriller that should appeal to anyone with an interest in suspense.
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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very satisfying film. June 10 2004
Format:DVD
Although it comes across as a movie custom fit for the youth of America who are not technologically challenged, it's actually enjoyable by anyone who cares to put some thought into the plot. Written and filmed around the pinnacle of the court battles between the Department of Justice and the Microsoft Corporation, it takes the Feds' claims of Microsoft's domination of the computer market, takes a fictional look at it with a twist of paranoia...and becomes a major motion picture.
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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Easy scapegoat nightmare March 7 2004
Format:VHS Tape
This film is a pretty interesting film on an essential subject and it raises fundamental questions. What can a society do against a capitalist private monopoly ? Not much. The very principle of the capitalist market is to enable competition hence to enable one business to become a monopoly at any time. The only guarantee we can have is that this competition will be honest and not helped with criminal or illegal activities. But how can we be sure ? The film shows that it is very easy to use dark means to achieve one's economic aim. How can we stop it ? the film seems to think that only young rebels helped by some older agents and animated by the same competitive ideology (but to their own profit after all) can prevent it, and even so it becomes show business. The second answer is to decide that knowledge is a public common good and that everyone must have access to it. This is a good idea as long as it deals with patents whose amortizing could be spread out in time or whose cost could be covered by some public system or service. But who is going to pay for the research ? This is less of a good idea when it deals with literature or arts because then the rights of the author over his own work is negated. How are authors, composers, etc, going to live if their work is no longer sold ? But the film raises a real problem in our society. It is easy to attack Bill Gates, actually named in the film, and deal with informatics which is a Wide Wild Wilderness. But I would like to see a film about pharmaceutical firms, about AIDS drugs sold at such a high price that millions of AIDS victims cannot afford them. Read more ›

4.0 out of 5 stars Delicious Irony Nov. 18 2003
Format:DVD
The main enjoyment of watching this movie for me was the irony that a motion picture made by Hollywood made a hero out of someone on the fringe of the open source camp. I didn't find it unbelievable that Ryan was working as a computer programmer, and I feel almost offended at the implication that computer programmers can't be shallow and image conscious just like everyone else. Believe me, we can.
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.

1.0 out of 5 stars What's the point?
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 more
