Corporate shenanigans are afoot in “Paranoia”, a title that made me think this was some kind of slasher movie or thriller, but is instead about, well, corporate shenanigans. Not sure how they’re going to make that all that thrilling, but a bald Harrison Ford looks interesting. Kinda. The flick co-stars Liam Hemsworth, brother of Chris, who gets top billing.
In this high-stakes thriller, Adam Cassidy (Liam Hemsworth) is a regular guy trying to get ahead in his entry-level job at Wyatt Corporation. But after one costly mistake, Adam’s ruthless CEO, Nicholas Wyatt (Gary Oldman), forces him to spy on corporate rival, Jock Goddard (Harrison Ford), Wyatt’s old mentor. Adam soon finds himself occupying the corner office and living the life he only dreamed of. However, behind the scenes, he is simply a pawn in Wyatt’s corporate game and realizes he must ultimately find a way out from under his boss who will stop at nothing, even murder, to win a multi-billion dollar advantage.
Also starring Gary Oldman, Lucas Till, Amber Heard, Embeth Davidtz, Julian McMahon, and Josh Holloway.
