The two most powerful tech billionaires in the world are bitter rivals with a complicated past who will stop at nothing to destroy each

corporate espionage. By the time Adam realizes his life is in danger, he is in far too deep and knows
far too much for them to let him walk away.
Thriller - This dramatic thriller is a showcase for young lead Liam Hemsworth,
with the two big stars in the cast, Gary Oldman and especially
Harrison Ford, with smaller supporting parts. Some language,
sensuality, and violence make the film inappropriate for young children.

OPINION OVERVIEW The following is the original "What's Worth
Watching" write-up for this movie.
Based on a theater exit polling of 34 moviegoers:
This movie didn't attract much of an audience its opening weekend and I don't understand why. It has major actors and a compelling trailer but the 7:30 Friday showing we collected reviews from only had five moviegoers in attendance. For this reason, we weren't able to collect but a handful of reviews.
TEENS:Three of the four females rated it above average and the fourth one rated it below average.
TWENTYSOMETHINGS:The two males rated it above average. Half the ladies loved "Paranoia," and half rated it above average, which indicates they enjoyed it very much.
ADULTS:The male reviews are pretty good but not great. About a third loved "Paranoia," with another third rating it above average. Unfortunately, the final third mostly rated it average, which is a bit low. A small percentage disliked it.
