Enemy of the State

Enemy of the State ★★½

I wasn’t very impressed with this movie. It’s not bad, but it’s mediocre at everything it tries to achieve.

The tension is all about running/driving/more running/more driving/more and more running etc etc etc. It just gets tiresome after a little while of the same thing happening over and over and over again.

Then the sparse action is relatively bland, save for one cool explosion. The end shootout is a cool idea, but shot like the DP was having a seizure.

Then there’s Will Smith, who feels wrong for the lead role. He’s not right for the part and the movie drags because of it.

There are some cool moments and it’s a fun enough experience with some good ideas. There’s just not anything great about it.
