Oh Snap! Bill Gates is gonna get you sucka!

(4 out of 5 stars)

"Milo Hoffman and Teddy Chin are two of the brightest minds in the computer programming world and also best friends. Their views are very close to being the same when it comes to the world's knowledge. That it should be free. Teddy is just a tad more gung ho about it though. While Teddy sets up shop with two of their other friends, Milo (Ryan Phillippe) decides to take an offer that both Teddy and himself were given. An offer to work for NURV, and to make a lot of money. The two are both working on the same program. A program that will let every device such as cell phones, PDA's, laptops, and computers transfer and broadcast media such as pictures and videos. While Teddy and others across the world are trying to figure out the code for this software to share it to the world for free, NURV has other plans for completing the software... at any cost. After a tragic event happens, Milo begins to wonder what is really going on within NURV. Every time a breakthrough of the programming comes up, there is really no one Milo can see that could have done it. As Milo begins to do some of his own detective work, he becomes startled when he begins to unravel some of the hidden secrets within NURV. Who can he trust as he begins his plan to show who NURV really is.

Ok so right away the connection between NURV and Gary Winston (Tim Robbins) is blatantly clear that they are Microsoft and Bill Gates. NURV is the company that is getting into trouble for basically monopolizing the computer world, just like Microsoft did. And Gary is a multi-billionaire being blamed for thievery, just like Bill did. But once you get that out of you head and start watching the movie for itself, it becomes a really fun ride. Yes it can be a little bit by the numbers, and yes it can be predictable, but for what it's worth, I've enjoyed this movie every time I've seen it. Ryan and Tim's acting were of course really good. Tim was a lot of fun to watch because he would go from the older computer loving geek kid to the leader that rules with an iron fist in seconds. It was fun to watch Gary and Milo's interactions. Even though Gary is this billionaire genius, he would lean in and get excited with Milo while figuring out programming, all the while chompin down on some Pringles and making a mess everywhere. The movie is littered with geeky fun also, such as certain programming and hacking, but that doesn't take away from the casual viewer at all. The movie has some decent tense moments as well as a few good twists. Having both Claire Forlani and Rachel Leigh Cook sure doesn't hurt the movie either.

In the end, I would definitely give this a watch. I never got bored and had a good time watching it. I'm glad I own it.

P.S. - Rachel... if you ever read this review... call me gurl. I HEART YOU!!
Nice little enjoyable film

"AntiTrust is a film that all cyber geeks can relate to. The film stared a then up and coming Ryan Phillpee as Milo a computer hacker who goes to work for a company that isn't what it seems. The film is fast paced and one of my favorite actors Tim Robbins makes a great villian."
