Enemy of the State


USA 1998,
Dir. Tony Scott
Rating: [M]
Genres: Suspense/Crime

Topics: Computers & Tech.


Aroview: Lawyer Will Smith unwittingly receives proof of a high-ranking assassination, and becomes not so much the enemy of the state as of white-collar nasty Jon Voight and his box of cutting-edge, super-tech surveillance toys.

With an arsenal of off-angles, speed-cuts, and sound-stabs, director Tony Scott zealously stages a round of in-your-face cat-and-mouse, rather distracting from the more serious, sinister implications in the material. Gene Hackman turns up late in the piece as an irascible tech veteran, but he's at least distinguished by a rather becoming no.1 haircut.
