slight disappointment
By Michael Coursey
staff writer
I saw Enemy of the State this week
and wasn’t sure what to expect. I
thought maybe it might be a military/
techno-type thriller, similar to Tom
Clancy’s films. However, I was
somewhat disappointed.
The movie starred Will Smith,
Regina King and Gene Hackman.
The film started out like a thorough
bred at the Kentucky Derby, but didn’t
know when to let up on the reins.
Robert Dean (Smith), a Washing
ton, D.C. area labor lawyer, who was
leading the ideal life until it started to
unravel when he became entangled in
an NSA (National Security Agency)
It opens with Will Smith discuss
ing the tough handed tactics of labor/
mob boss Mr. Pintero (Tom Sizemore)
who is cast as the typical greasy, over-

weight, obnoxious, Itulian-American
mobster. Dean and Pintero are put at
odds when Dean reveals that he has a
video that could put Pintero back in
the Federal Penitentiary for 15 years.
The plot shifts as Dean becomes
caught up in a surveillance web, mas
terminded by a illegal “op” headed by
a NSA administrator (Jon Voight).
Voight's character is trying to put
pressure on Congress to pass a na
tional security act that would broaden
the scope of the NSA. Voight’s char
acter has all the compassion of a
NAZI Gestapo officer with hemor
The next hour of the movie is a
whirlwind of action: Dean being
tracked all over the greater Washing
ton and Baltimore area with bugging
and tracking devices. Satellites fol

the movie, Gene Hackman appeared
and added a great deal of entertain
ment to the film. Will Smith did a
good job with what he had, but the
tempo of the movie was too fast at
times to keep up with the story line.
The movie raised an interesting
question about freedom snd about the
conspiracy theorists: they should
champion this movie. This would
definitely be a good movie to see at
least for the discussion value. If the
director would have slowed down the
chase scenes, it would have been
much better.
For the Tom Clancy fans, and com
puter/techno-types, this would be a
very interesting movie. I kept think
ing during this movie: if the govern
ment can control this much of your
life, maybe a log cabin in the moun
tains is not a bad place to be for
I’ll give this movie a lukewarm 2
and 3/4 stars.
