Consensus: Clichéd and unoriginal, Paranoia is a middling techno-thriller with indifferent performances and a shortage of thrills.

There's nothing wrong with Paranoia that a stronger director, livelier leading actors and several hundred fewer narrative conveniences wouldn't cure.

Corporate thrillers just aren't what they used to be.

Director Robert Luketic [does] nothing beyond his contractual obligations (which presumably read, "Um, make a movie, I guess").

Village Voice

This is a film at odds with itself, wanting to be a 99 percenter rallying cry but wallowing in and fetishizing 1 percenter accoutrement at every turn.

In a movie about a new generation's hunger to topple the old guard, pretty boy Hemsworth is outclassed by his veteran costars, who get more mileage from baring their teeth than he does baring his chest.

Drew McWeeny

Paranoia is professional in every way, but there's no pulse to it. It is entirely adequate, livened up only by a few supporting turns.

David Lewis
San Francisco Chronicle

Paranoia, a ho-hum thriller about corporate spying in the high-tech world, comes off as a lot more preposterous than paranoid, and it takes no more than a few frames for the eye rolling to commence.

James Berardinelli

The movie doesn't make a whole lot of sense and, when it does, it would be better off not doing so.

Stephen Kelly
Total Film

It's a premise that stands or falls on the tense fate of a charismatic lead and dialogue that does not clang right off the screen; a woeful lack of both ensures Paranoia more than falls -- it collapses.

It felt like a rehash of 2001's Antitrust.

* "Paranoia" is a technology corporation thriller, that lacks the most important thing in a thriller, thrills. Liam Hemsworth stars as a down on his… More

This movie is certainly carried through by Oldman and Ford. Without them it would have been a slow bore of a movie.

Mediocre affair with a sloppily written script, Paranoia is a dull film that had an interesting premise, but it just ends up falling flat. The cast is awful,… More

Crowded with A-List actors who work pretty much to their best potential, "Paranoia" is sure to be the hit of the century am I right? Hell no, and let… More

In a war between kings even a pawn can change the game. Good Film! "Paranoia" starts off nicely and builds up to a point where it could go anywhere… More
