Enemy of the State

Enemy of the State ★★★½

If there's something Tony Scott can do is exciting chases. He knows where to place the camera, when to blur the movement, when the music should start, and when to change to a close-up or to a long shot. It's technically marvelous and the result? An adrenaline rush, like we're the one being chased, running for our lives.

"Enemy of the State" is a film that grabs the paranoia of "The Conversation" (there's even a scene with Will Smith and Lisa Bonet that is just like the beginning of Francis Ford Coppola's classic film) and brings it further, getting technology as a dangerous weapon, and doesn't focus just on surveillance, technology takes an active action against people. It's a wildly fun film, and one good addition to Tony Scott's filmography.
