4.0 out of 5 stars what if?, May 29 2009
this was a well done movie dealing with big brother,invasion of privacy
and conspiracy theory.it poses the question what if the conspiracy
theories with government tracking you every movie and knowing all your
intimate details were actually true.what if they could erase your life
in an instant.Will Smith plays an ordinary joe,who is caught
up,through no fault of his own in just that scenario.if you have any
paranoia regarding,this sort of thing,this movie will heighten it.i
don't think it's completely realistic.some things are added for
dramatic affect and to heighten tension and keep the story
moving.nevertheless,it is thought provoking.it poses the question what
would you do in this situation.it's also very exciting at times.Gene
Hackman John Voigt and Lisa Bonet also star.for me,Enemy of the State
is a solid 4/5

3.0 out of 5 stars Enemy of the State (1998), May 30 2004

This review is from: Enemy Of The State [Import] (DVD)
Director: Tony Scott
Cast: Will Smith, Gene Hackman, Jon Voight, Regina King, Loren Dean, Jake Busey, Barry Pepper.
Running Time: 127 minutes.
Rated R for violence and language.
Another producer Jerry Bruckheimer/director Tony Scott thrill ride without substance, this time pitting family man lawyer Robert Clayton Dean (played by Will Smith in a ho-hum performance) against a technologically-driven government. Not knowing that the trivial meeting with an old friend would cause him so much trouble, Dean gets sucked into a conspiracy case involving a rogue National Security Agent (Jon Voight) who killed a United States congressman because he accidentally received a video tape with footage of the murder. With incredible surveillance techniques and technology, Voight is able to track all of the lawyer's moves and keep tabs on him.
Our hero's life is turned upside down until he meets up with a stealthy former NSA active named Brill (played very well by Gene Hackman). With the assistance of Brill, Dean attacks the government head on and must learn the truth in order to save his life. Director Tony Scott brilliantly uses the camera to portray his views, jolting the characters through a series of incredible chase scenes, rip-roaring explosions, and intense firearm combat, but ultimately "Enemy of the State" focuses solely on the unbridled advances in special effects abilities that it keeps the audience from understanding the story and getting involved with the characters. Smith is only adequate in his first major "dramatic" role, while Hackman and Voight pick up some of the slack in their devilishly effective parts. A must-see if you are into big explosions and dynamite cinematography, but one to leave on the shelf if over-acting and a mediocre script are an annoyance.

4.0 out of 5 stars For what it is, perfect, April 19 2004

This review is from: Enemy Of The State [Import] (DVD)
Enemy of the State is a breakneck thriller that genuinely keeps you on the edge of your seat and is a real nail-biter. It is incredibly well-constructed for what it is: slick, well-shot, gloriously pacey and even with a dash of interesting social question in there. Granted, often it is incredibly implausible, and his ability to sit back and be happy at the end despite all the carnage of what has happened, make it a little laughable, but the fact is, thats not the point with this kind of film - the point is it is truly thrilling, stylish and cool. You really get deep into it.
Will Smith is startlingly good in his best performance since Six Degrees Of Seperation - if only he would turn in these great performances in credible, interesting films more often, and is well supported by a strong cast that includes Gene Hackman, Jamie Kennedy and Jack Black amongst others. This comes highly reccomended for an evening's entertainment and is truly exhilirating and packed with plot and intrigue that puts most regurgitated, lame excuses for a storyline to shame. Great stuff.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent, April 9 2004

This review is from: Enemy Of The State [Import] (DVD)
I strongly recommend you buy or at least rent this fantastic film. It's got it all, suspense, action and even comedy for the lad-eez, as Will Smith might say. It's got excellent pacing and great suspense. The storyline is a little implausible, but it's hollywood so just chill out and expect it. Kick back and watch this rollercoaster ride of a film.
Great performance from Will Smith, his best to date in fact, suggesting there is more than just comedy and Bad Boyz to his routine. And Gene Hackman too - what more could you want?
If i was Roger Ebert, i'd give it two thumbs up!
The DVD is loaded with extrea special features too, and that makes the DVD in particular a must. Don't just buy this film, make sure you get it on DVD.
I give it 8/10, but cos i'm generous i'll round it up to 5 stars, including those great DVD features.

Jason Lee(A Guy Thing) takes shots of Jon Voight(Midnight Cowboy) killing Jason Robards(Magnolia) and Lee before he gets runned over by a bus makes Will Smith(Bad Boys 1 and 2) and then Voight and his crew ggo after him and his family. Smith gets help from Gene Hackman(Scarcrow). other actors in the mix...Jack Black(Shallow Hal), Jamie Kennedy(Scream Trilogy), Lisa Bonet(High Fidelity), Scott Caan(Black and White), Ian Hart(Harry Potter and The Chamber Of Secrets), Tom Sizemore(Dreamcatcher), Loren Dean(Rosewood), Jake Busey(Identity), Barry Pepper(Battlefield Earth), Gabriel Bryne(Stigmata), Stuart Wilson(No Escape) and an unbilled cameo by Seth Green(Party Monster). dont miss the ride.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good Action-Suspence movie, Nov. 18 2003
This review is from: Enemy Of The State [Import] (DVD)
Another greatly produced movie from Jerry Bruckheimer which showcases the talent which Will Smith has not only as a singer but as well as an actor.
With the addition of the legendery Gene Hackman,the cobination produces great specticale for the audience.With the ever evolving plot in this movie,it will be always interesing to watch time and time again.
However one minor disadvantage is that the munes of the DVD could have been improved.
Overall,a great movie to enjoy for evey end of the audience spectrum.
