Enemy of the State

6 years, 9 months ago at Dec 19 15:48
As a U.S. senator moves to pass new legislation that dramatically expands the surveillance powers of law enforcement agencies, Congressman Phil Hammersley (Jason Robards, uncredited) remains firmly opposed to its passage. To ensure the bill's passage, National Security Agency official Thomas Reynolds (Jon Voight) kills Hammersley, but he is unaware of a video camera set up in a duck blind by wildl... read more

I already saw this movie but since it was a while back and since I had it on DVD, I thought I might as well check it out again. According to IMDb, it is apparently Tony Scott’s 3rd best movie only behind ‘True Romance’ and ‘Man on Fire’ and I have to admit that it is indeed a really entertaining movie. Indeed, Tony Scott has always been a solid action flick director and he delivered here... read more

This is the perfect thriller for a Saturday Night In.

Will Smith puts in a fine performance in a serious role as a lawyer who is being chased by the establishment and framed. He handles serious roles very well and portrays the frustration and confusion of the character with great skill. Jon Voigt is excellent as a Government Official and manages to keep that calm persona throughout.read more

BradWesley123's Movie Journal- May 2017 (33 movies items)

" Netflix- 2hrs. 12min. First Viewing It's all too bombastic and frenzied, but that's kind of the point of Enemy of the State; it's all about a crazed, bombastic surveillance society. That doesn't forgive the, often, messy plotting and thin characterizations, but it does, possibly, help accentuate the story. Maybe I'm giving the film too much credit though; it's a 90s Jerry Bruckheimer production with a big cast and a big budget. It's pretty fun, and exceedingly over-the-top. Maybe absurdity was"

" Tony Scott manage to make much out of this conspiracy paranoia thriller by having a tremendous cast helping him out, fast editing and loud music in a production worthy of the Jerry Bruckheimer production stamp. Gene Hackman steals the film in a heroic role as an expert on surveillance. The story has become scary reality now as people are controlled a lot more due to the happenings of 9/11. Most of the action consist of Will Smith running from one scene to another from the bad guys. "

It is Gene Hackman who steals the film though for me. Playing a mysterious character whose role and background are kept quiet until the end, he manages to portray a sense of urgency, secrecy, menace, dramatic irony and purpose. Yet he still keeps a vague sense of humour at the same time.

There are a couple of good subplots in this film.. One which was totally unnecessary to the plo” read more

Indeed, Tony Scott has always been a solid action flick director and he delivered here one of his most effective features. What was also pretty neat with this movie is that it was actually pretty realistic and even prophetic, considering the Edward Snowden scandal that occurred only a few years ago. Furthermore, there was some neat tributes to obviously ‘The Conversation’ but, on top of that, with Will Smith playing this ordinary guy involved in some convoluted conspiracy, they” read more
