ENEMY OF THE STATE (Theatrical Release USA 1998)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 4.4|5.0 Starsìììì

Enemy of the State
easily turns itself into a ‘must see’ movie of 1998. It’s executed in an unflinching classic, spy-thriller style that has Director Tony Scott’s stamp of excellence written all over every scene. It stands among Will Smith’s best films with raw tension in full presence from its beginning to its end. Watch for Jack Black and Seth Green.
