Storyline

The high stakes thriller Paranoia takes us deep behind the scenes of global success to a deadly world of greed and deception. The two most powerful tech billionaires in the world (Harrison Ford and Gary Oldman) are bitter rivals with a complicated past who will stop at nothing to destroy each other. A young superstar (Liam Hemsworth), seduced by unlimited wealth and power falls between them, and becomes trapped in the middle of the twists and turns of their life-and-death game of corporate espionage. By the time he realizes his life is in danger, he is in far too deep and knows far too much for them to let him walk away. Written by Relativity Media

Cliché driven predictable rubbish
5 January 2014 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

Awful. Awful. Awful. Not to mention extremely cliché, incredibly boring and very predictable. Liam Hemsworth is wooden, Gary Oldman is far from his usual standard, Amber Heard tries (looks good) but is unconvincing and not even the brilliant Harrison Ford can manage to save this shipwreck. If it's a Ford-Oldman collaboration that you are hoping to see, watch Air Force One. Avoid Paranoia.

Based on Joseph Finder's novel of the same name, Adam (Hemsworth) is fired from his job in the films initial stages. It should have ended there. But he is lured into a world of Greed, Deception and successful billionaires (a hairless Ford and a Micheal-Caine-voiced Oldman) who are rivals that plan to take each other down. Adam is caught in the middle of the feud and must spy on one, whilst working for the other. Also, Hemsworth has managed to sleep with Amber Heard before realising that he is actually going to be working with her. There's a few plot twists and turns, but nothing we haven't seen before. It's completely predictable.

As a thriller film, it lacks the necessary bite to hold ones interest. As a drama, it is sour. As an action film, the excitement is to infrequent - or if you prefer - nonexistent. It's content is bland and hopefully Hollywood will eventually stop putting this crap upon our screens. Use these actors to their full potential! Not this junk. <1 out of 10> A poor, boring, cliché, predictable, awful film with a lead performance from Thor's younger brother that will hopefully be forgotten.
