Storyline

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 Jordan Thornsburg

Goofs

Scene with Milo & Lisa talking about how they are going to go public with the news about Gary. During the exchange one of the cuts to Milo his eyeglasses move independent of his head. (Milo's head, eyes, brows, don't move but his glasses shift quickly back and worth.) Not as easily seen on a computer but a larger screen it's clearly a mediocre CGI application. Apparently actor (Ryan P) didn't have the glasses on during one of the takes but it wasn't identified until later and it was only a line (one of the cuts from Lisa to Milo where it occurs). I just thought it was ODD when I saw the glasses wobble on their own. See more »

Quotes

Milo: 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.
Bob Shrot: You'd be surprised what I'd believe about these people.

A brainless movie that requires brain.
15 January 2001 | by See all my reviews

I didn't expect much from AntiTrust, but I was surprised. The story was fast-paced and exciting, it never really slowed-down. When the movie was over I felt satisfied, it had a lot of what I look for in a movie. It requires you to think about what is happening, even if sometimes it gets un-realistic with plot twists. Good things aside, AntiTrust had its share of problems. There was some techy-talk that went on too long, whenever something bad was discovered by Milo(Ryan however you spell his last name) the camera would zoom in and then shake around, and it got a little un-realistic in the finale. All-in-all AntiTrust was good, but I just found-out it opened it 12th place. It deserves better.
