Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"There's nothing wrong with Paranoia that a stronger director, livelier leading actors and several hundred fewer narrative conveniences wouldn't cure."
‑ Michael Phillips, Chicago Tribune
"Corporate thrillers just aren't what they used to be."
‑ Liam Lacey, Globe and Mail
"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."
‑ Drew McWeeny, HitFix
"It's slickly directed by Robert Luketic even though it's all pretty unbelievable. But in fact I rather enjoyed it."
‑ Margaret Pomeranz, At the Movies (Australia)
"Even as a straight-to-DVD release, this would fail to pass muster."
‑ David Edwards, Daily Record [UK]
"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."
‑ Ernest Hardy, Village Voice
"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."
‑ Andrea Gronvall, Chicago Reader
"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."
‑ Stephen Kelly, Total Film
"A couple of business rivals trying to steal each other's cell phone secrets is just not that gripping to watch unfold, especially when it's anchored by such a dull protagonist."
‑ Jim Vejvoda, IGN Movies
"The twists aren't surprising, the perils feel artificial, and even Hemsworth's chest gets a little ho-hum after a while."
‑ Jay Stone,
"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."
‑ David Lewis, San Francisco Chronicle
"The movie doesn't make a whole lot of sense and, when it does, it would be better off not doing so."
‑ James Berardinelli, ReelViews
"It's rather a slight affair."
‑ David Stratton, At the Movies (Australia)
"[A] garbage movie."
‑ Dave White,
"Ford gives it the old college try and it's decently paced but it's not enough to elevate it from the muck and mire of a boring script made by an unimaginative director."
‑ Luke Mullen, Film School Rejects
