Hot Hollywood favorite Will Smith (MEN IN BLACK, INDEPENDENCE DAY) stars with Academy Award(R)-winner Gene Hackman (Best Actor, UNFORGIVEN, 1992, THE FRENCH CONNECTION, 1971) in a high-powered suspense thriller where nonstop action meets state of the art technology. Robert Clayton Dean (Smith) is a successful Washington, D.C., attorney who — without his knowledge — is given a video that ties a top official of the National Security Agency (Oscar(R)-winner Jon Voight, Best Actor, 1978, COMING HOME) to a political murder. Instantly, each and every aspect of Dean’s once-normal life is targeted by a lethal team of skilled NSA surveillance operatives, who wage a relentless, ultra-high-tech campaign to discredit him and retrieve the incriminating evidence. Also featuring Regina King (JERRY MAGUIRE, BOYZ N THE HOOD) in an impressive, star-studded cast — get in a position for the action to explode as Dean desperately races to reclaim his life and prove his innocence before it’s too late.
Robert Clayton Dean (Will Smith) is a lawyer with a wife and family whose happily normal life is turned upside down after a chance meeting with a college buddy (Jason Lee) at a lingerie shop. Unbeknownst to the lawyer, he is just been burdened with a videotape of a congressman’s assassination. Hot on the tail of this tape is a ruthless group of National Security Agents commanded by a belligerently ambitious fed named Reynolds (Jon Voight). The use of surveillance from satellites, bugs, and other sophisticated snooping devices, the NSA infiltrates each and every facet of Dean’s existence, tracing each and every physical and digital footprint he leaves. Driven by acute paranoia, Dean enlists the assistance of a clandestine former NSA operative named Brill (Gene Hackman), and Enemy of the State kicks into high-intensity hyperdrive.
Teaming up once again with producer Jerry Bruckheimer, Top Gun director Tony Scott demonstrates his glossy style with clever cinematography and breakneck pacing. Will Smith proves that there is more to his success than a brash sense of humor, giving a versatile performance that plausibly illustrates a man cracking under the strain of paranoid turmoil. Hackman steals the show by essentially reprising his role from The Conversation–just believe his memorable character Harry Caul some 20 years later. Most of all, the film’s depiction of high-tech surveillance is highly convincing and dramatically compelling, making this a cautionary tale with more substance than you’d generally expect from a Scott-Bruckheimer action extravaganza. –Jeremy Storey
