Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Got a by-the-numbers plot? A premise that's intriguing but also has holes in it? Dialogue that needs punching up? Hire Tim Robbins. He can save just about anything."
‑ Jeff Strickler, Minneapolis Star Tribune
"The flashy topicality amounts to little, and Peter Howitt's slavishly generic direction doesn't help."
‑ Dennis Lim, Village Voice
"This wannabe thriller about the new techno industry is a misfire."
‑ Emanuel Levy, EmanuelLevy.Com
"Passably entertaining in spots, but doomed by its bungling of the thriller elements."
‑ Brent Simon, Entertainment Today
"A pretty good ride."
‑ Jean Lowerison, San Diego Metropolitan
"My, my, such a high-tech setting -- too bad it's marred by such a low-tech plot."
‑ Rick Groen, Globe and Mail
"As sly as it is knowing, and played with wit to match its conviction."
‑ Susan Stark, Detroit News
"Silicon Valley story of good versus evil-sort of."
‑ Charles Cassady, Common Sense Media
"A thriller about creativity which doesn't display any of its subject matter."
‑ Christopher Tookey, Daily Mail [UK]
"Antitrust will never go down in history as a great thriller, but nowadays, when thrillers are about as popular as whale meat, it'll suffice."
‑ David Nusair, Reel Film Reviews
"There's not an original note in Howard Franklin's screenplay or Peter Howitt's direction."
‑ Peter Travers, Rolling Stone
"A vast improvement over earlier attempts at this growing genre."
‑ Roger Moore, Orlando Sentinel
"It won't win any Oscars but it might make 14-year-olds wonder whether it's really worth spending life in front of a screen."
‑ Harry Guerin, RTE Interactive (Dublin, Ireland)
"This thriller in name only is all too characteristic of the cinematic scrap heap that is the first month of the year."
‑ Michael Dequina,
"It's refreshing to see a filmmaker who's well aware of the limitations of his material, someone who can step back and say, 'Hey, this isn't 'Schindler's List': We're just trying to give the audience two hours of corny fun.'"
‑ James Sanford, Kalamazoo Gazette
