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"

Jon Voigt is excellent as a Government Official and manages to keep that calm persona throughout.

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
