    When the guy rotates the camera footage's angle, isolates the bag in 3d view and notices a shadow on it, the movie was over for me lol. And that was in the first 20 minutes or so. 4 years 11 months ago

    Tony Scott makes Enemy of the State look and sound good, but this Will Smith vehicle is so badly written that it falls apart almost immediately. You've got a nasty element inside the NSA who commits murder, gets caught on tape, then spends the movie trying to destroy the tape and anyone who knows about it using every means at its disposal. Will Smith gets into trouble when an old college friend slips him the tape, and off we go. But I have a hard time believing even a single frame of Smith's performance, a wisecracking labor lawyer whose wisecracks are frankly unfunny, and whose turn as an action hero doesn't track. There's entirely too much coincidence and stretches of the imagination needed to make the plot work. The best moments are provided by Gene Hackman, as a former NSA agent whose intense paranoia may just get both of them out of this, but despite his larger billing on the DVD cover, he's not in this quite enough to save the film. 4 years 9 months ago
