Did You Know?

Trivia:
During the sequence where we are shown the "open source" developers that are monitored by NURV you can clearly see one of them wearing a red hat which looks exactly like the one that the company Red Hat uses as their logo. Red Hat is a GNU/Linux distribution.See more »
Goofs:
Plot holes: 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 »

Not "The Net 2", 14 January 2001
Author: Darth_Tirranus from Philadelphia, PA

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.
