Paranoia

Eager young product designers lose their jobs at a New York high-tech firm after angering their ruthless boss (Gary Oldman), who then muscles their cash-strapped team leader (Liam Hemsworth) into serving as his corporate spy. Harrison Ford plays Oldman's archenemy and former mentor, who's all too eager to adopt the kid as his new protege. Director Robert Luketic (The Ugly Truth, Killers) misses a bet by reducing the topic of electronic surveillance to a mere plot device, and his casting is unintentionally ironic: in a movie about a new generation's hunger to topple the old guard, pretty boy Hemsworth is outclassed by his veteran costars, who get more mileage from baring their teeth than he does baring his chest.
