Enemy of the State

Enemy of the State ★★★★

I can straight say this, as all visually pyrotechnical Tony Scott films goes, "Enemy of the State" may not be one of the most tramatically deep or either so much soo interesting in its surveillance and social privacy themes. But as a well builtedly written film goes, Tony doesn't dissapoint at all here and delivers the exact amount of French Connectin'esc thriller on steroids in morden age with tones of well builted tension and fair amount of humor, alongside some both well edited and filmed frantic action scenes, and with a cast of fully committed actors and charismatic characters to make an overall fun and memorable experience. And any movie who has Gene Hackman as a surveillance paranoid freak that loves cats and beaches, and a scene devoted to Will Smith having trouble to buy lingerie for his wife before he goes out on a manhunt against his life, deserves the price of admission alone. And...wait a minute...IS THIS A SEQUEL TO Francis Ford Coppola's THE CONVERSATION??!!!!
