Enemy of The State (1998) – A Rewatched Quick Capsule Review

Phil’s Quick Capsule Review:
Enemy of The State is an 90’s action thriller movie at its best.  Yup the tech may not hold up but the films pace, bold in your face approach and Scott’s usual eye for action make this film a wild and highly enjoyable ride.  Smith showed his leading man credentials once again and the support cast are top draw, not least Gene Hackman who is sadly missed on screen these days. Enemy of The State may not be everyone’s tase but once again it reminded me why I just adore Scott as a director.
