It's Not Paranoia If They're Really After You.
Will Smith is Robert Clayton Dean, a respected Washington D.C. attorney who...without his knowledge...is given an explosive piece of video that ties a top national security official to a political murder! Instantly, Dean is targeted by a covert team of lethal government surveillance operatives...who systematically wage a relentless, ultra high-tech campaign to discredit him and retrieve the incriminating evidence!

"Enemy of the State...has a hurtling pace, nonstop intensity and a stylish, appealing performance by Will Smith...  Janet Maslin, The New York Times
"A dynamite thriller!  Rolling Stone

Editor's Note
Robert Dean (Will Smith) is a labor lawyer who is unknowingly in possession of evidence related to a serious politically motivated crime. Government agents eager to hide their guilt believe that Dean is on to them, and proceed to turn his life upside-down, ruin his reputation, and frame him for various incidents, thanks to the latest in high-tech government surveillance techniques. In an attempt to clear his name and reclaim his life, Dean teams up with the reclusive Brill (Gene Hackman), a former federal employee who has as much high-tech equipment and expertise as the government itself. Hackman's role is an extension of Harry Caul, the character he portrayed in Francis Ford Coppola's brilliant 1974 film, THE CONVERSATION. Smith scores as a man who is desperate to reclaim his identity and prove his innocence. This intense technological thrill-ride from director Tony Scott questions how much access the government should have to the communications of private citizens, and leaves the viewer with the unsettling feeling that Big Brother is definitely watching. Watch for the uncredited appearances of Jason Robards, Seth Green, Tom Sizemore, and Philip Baker Hall.

Professional Reviews

Rolling Stone
"...[A] dynamic thriller....[Will Smith] is sensational..." 12/10/1998 p.133

Entertainment Weekly
"...A high-adrenaline action thriller....Smith is a fresh choice..." -- Rating: B 01/08/1999 p.50

USA Today
"...[A] brisk, grown-up thriller...Will Smith delivers a terrifically ingratiating performance..." -- 3 1/2 out of 4 stars 12/11/1998 p.9E

New York Times
"...It has a hurtling pace, nonstop intensity, and a stylish, appealing performance by Will Smith..." 11/20/1998 p.E1

Ultimate DVD
4 stars out of 5 -- "Hackman is fantastic....[The film is] one of Scott's best." 07/01/2006 p.101

The New York Times 8 of 10
...it's the gigahertz that are hot in a thriller that treats technology as its biggest turn-on. High-tech surveillance ("Enhance, then forward frame by frame!") is at the heart of this latest splashy collaboration between Tony Scott and Jerry Bruckheimer (Top Gun, Crimson Tide), with its premise that privacy is imperiled by runaway electronics... The film's horde of foxy screens, transmitters, buttonhole cameras and laptops probably deserve an acting credit of their own. - Janet Maslin

Chicago Sun-Times 7 of 10
The movie is fast-paced, centered around two big chase scenes, and ending in a clever double-cross that leads to a big shootout... But by and large the movie works. Smith is credible as a good lawyer who is blindsided by the misused power of the state. - Roger Ebert
