      SidDARKtha Criminally underrated. It's awesome. Cast is great too. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 07/16/23 Full Review Audience Member 2016-02-14 dark and too weird and could never figure out what was really going on, even though we watched it all the way to the end. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 01/20/23 Full Review Audience Member The mood is great, but the film just plods along, never really going anywhere. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 02/09/23 Full Review Audience Member Weird and Intriguing Story with the Potential of a Cult-following--Subtle, beautiful and gritty science fiction; Gorgeous brain candy!! Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 02/22/23 Full Review Audience Member althought were nice actors, but didnt like the movie at all. seemed nightmare to me. Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 02/08/23 Full Review Audience Member It sucks and it blows. Either The Matrix (1999) was incredibly far ahead of its time or this movie (2004) is behind of it. Now it's not like I just compare every movie with The Matrix, but this one has several scenes obviously inspired by it and it 'borrowes' certain ideas for no good reason. I hate these movies where everybody talks in riddles all the time while being shot in wide-eye lenses and why is everything sofa king dark? The sets and props are another issue, I don't get that whole in-the-near-future-we-have-amazing-tech-on-really-crappy-looking-computers-with-crappy-UI-and-old-as-shit-monitors-thing, I've seen it before in movies like Dark City and Avalon and I just don't see the point. It's just being weird for the sake of being weird imho. There's some guy screaming at him all the time to finish the code, but instead of doing his job he just fucks around all day, going shopping, hanging with the neighbours, Chillin' out maxin' relaxin' all cool and all shootin some b-ball outside of the school. When a couple of guys Who were up to no good.. Startin making trouble in my neighborhood Why doesn't anybody clean and/or paint the fucking walls?! Appearantly the near future involves people pissing and jizzing on the walls all the goddamn time, that's the only logical explanation for all the grime on the walls, it really compliment the overused green filter. The plot of the movie is obvious and easily traced in half an hour, but still it takes an incredibly long time to get to the fucking point.

      Kirk Honeycutt Hollywood Reporter A bit of Kafka, a touch of Orwell and Terry Gilliam and a whole lot of been-there- done-that. Feb 18, 2004 Full Review Film Threat Rated: 3.5/5 Dec 6, 2005 Full Review Pablo Villaça Cinema em Cena Uma premissa inteligente que recebe um tratamento visual mais do que adequado pela dupla de cineastas estreantes, discpulos bvios de Cronenberg. Rated: 4/5 May 2, 2005 Full Review Brian Mckay eFilmCritic.com Paranoia 1.0 has atmosphere in spades. Unfortunately, the plot and character development are about as thin as the atmosphere on Pluto. Rated: 2.5/5 Mar 16, 2005 Full Review Ryan Cracknell Movie Views While the story is very original combining the techno-edge of The Matrix with Orson Welles' The Trial, it's the mood and atmosphere where it really shines. Feb 28, 2005 Full Review Jon Popick Planet S Magazine Good, fun, dark, Midnight Movie-type fun. Rated: 7/10 Apr 9, 2004 Full Review Read all reviews
