Enemy of the State (***) - Every once in a while it’s nice not to only get a good movie, but a good thriller. This is the second film of the year to be purely classified as a “chase movie”, and like the other film, Ronin, it succeeds purely on the craftsmanship of its director as well as the intelligent cast it inhabits itself with.Tony Scott is turning his films into cameo city. Check out just how many recognizable actors are in this film. You may not know their names, but you’ve seen them all before. Most notable cameos are by Jason Robards (after his silent cameo in Beloved) and Tom Sizemore who has a rather large supporting part for a cameo appearance. Will Smith has been a consistent pleasure to watch in film and is here as well. Once again my hats off to one of my favorite actors, Gene Hackman, for somewhat expanding on his character in The Conversation. He doesn’t have a huge part, but once again he transforms himself into this guy, and we never believe that he’s played this guy before. The film is centered around a lot of really well constructed chase scenes. One after another, director Tony Scott, excites us with always entertaining, if not always plausible action sequences. This film is also probably the scariest film I’ve actually seen all year. Everything in the film seems possible and it makes one think after leaving the theater (as well as during) about sending another e-mail, making another phone call, or walking across the street. The ending is rather clever in the way that it’s been built up to, and I liked how it played out, even though I thought it was better filmed in one of Scott’s earlier pictures, True Romance.I was tempted (and still am) to give this film a 3 ½ Star rating, but I only gave Ronin 3 stars and I was equally thrilled by both flicks. I’ll stick to 3 stars for now, until I can see both of these films again.
