Antitrust back to product details

My daycare wasn't that cool!

My son and I thought it was worth watching. There was a certain level of tension that was sustained through most of the film. It is very hard to do that, and to keep the story believable at the same time. We have never been impressed with Claire Forlani, but the rest of the actors were very good. We both know a little about computers (cough), so we would call this pseudo-realistic sci-fi.

I want my time back!

I saw this movie on a flight from London to Los Angeles. I'd already finished my book and seen the other movies twice. Watching Antitrust was the only thing left to do. I wasn't going anywhere. I had 108 minutes to kill. And yet, I still feel like I got ripped off. That's 108 minutes of my life I will never, ever get back.

I'm still trying to figure out why Ryan Phillippe and Rachael Leigh Cook pretend to be actors when they're really just very pretty mannequins. Phillippe, especially, is a gawdawful actor; as far as I can tell, he has only two facial expressions: a vacuous stare, and an angry vacuous stare.

And let's not get into the continuing debate of how Hollywood just doesn't get how geeks and geek companies operate. I don't care how much "research" the filmmakers did; it all rings hollow. Even if you're trapped on an airplane with nothing to do for 108 minutes, you're better off reading SkyMall a dozen times than seeing Antitrust.

No way this will ever happen...

Given the commercials and the premise, the movie wasn't half bad. The plot was ok, the acting was pretty good with the exception of Tim Robbins' unconvincing portrayal of an evil Bill Gates. The 'computer geek lingo' and the code (all the code samples appeared to be XMLish or Javaish) were descent for a movie (compared to The Net it was even believable).
BTW, I dont doubt that an evil software giant could exist, I just couldnt believe that a single guy could take him down. It's almost as hard to believe as the very attractive leading woman being with a computer geek....
