This movie is the fictional story of computer programming genius Milo Hoffman after graduating from Stanford and getting out into the competitive world of computer software. In his contemplation of where to begin his career, he is contacted by Gary Winston whose character is loosely based on Bill Gates. Winston is the CEO of a company called NURV, and they are on the brink of completing the global communication's system, Synapse. They need Hoffman to help them meet their launch date, so after much thought and with the full support of his girlfriend Alice, he accepts the job. Tragedy soon after strikes and Milo becomes suspicious of the company he has been wrapped up in. He learns that trusting anyone could be a mistake, and that nothing is as it seems. Written by
The first time Gary comes up to Milo with "helpful code," there is a glimpse of the source. If you look closely at the byte casting in the if/else statement it vertically reads "GET "..."HEAD ". Followed immediately by Gary's statement. "Oh God. Oh, so much fun. I love doing this." See more »
After Teddy is killed, Milo is handed a CD which contains new source code that solves the bandwidth limitations. Unless Gary refactored it considerably, Milo would be able to spot Teddy, and possibly his own coding style instantly. Combined with Gary's comment "its not in the box, its in the band", it makes no sense for Gary to hand Milo such condemning proof. See more »
Now I'm going to go out on a limb here because there's a very good chance you're not going to believe a word of what I'm about to tell you.
You'd be surprised what I'd believe about these people.

When I first saw the preview for Anti-Trust, I thought 2 things. 1) It was a not-so-disguised movie about Microsoft. 2) It was probably "The Net 2." It looked like another computer-based movie that would be as realistic as "Hackers," but with a more obvious plot. From the first 30 seconds of the preview you can pretty much tell that the open-source sidekick is marked for death and Bill Gates...I mean Gary Winston was a criminal mastermind who will do anything to get ahead in business. I'd happy to say that while the first half of the movie went without any surprises, there are enough plot twists in the 2nd half to keep you guessing who's on who's side. Tim Robbins and Ryan Philippe both give good performances, and nobody seems out of place talking about technology. It's not the best movie I've seen this year, but it definately blew away my expectations.
