Plot: What’s it about?

With action-packed movies like Top Gun and Bad Boys under thier belt, Producers Don Simpson and Jerry Bruckheimer and Director Tony Scott are back with Enemy of the State.

In this film, Will Smith plays an attorney who unknowingly is given a video that ties a top ranking NSA official, played by Jon Voight, to the murder of a congressman. Voight will stop at nothing to retrieve the video. Using their powers, including a satellite that can track your every move, Smith’s professional and family life is turned upside down. He must now go on the run and try to stay one step ahead of the NSA, while figuring out why he is targeted.

This movie has plenty of action, special effects, and suspense to it. Can “Big Brother be Watching?”, it really makes you wonder if our private life is as private as we think and could the government be surveilling our every move.

All in all this is an awsome flick. The acting is great, especially Gene Hackman, who plays a former NSA agent who helps Smith understand why he is being sought after. The special effects are fantastic and the plot is good. If you like the Fugutive than you’ll like this film. This is a must for your DVD collection.

Video: How does it look?

The film transfer to DVD is crisp and good. The movie comes only in widesrceen format.

Audio: How does it sound?

Like all of the other DVD movies produced by Jerry Bruckheimer (Top Gun, Con Air, Armageddon,etc) the audio is superb. The disc comes in Dolby Digital 5.1 and Dolby Surround.

Supplements: What are the extras?

This DVD comes with a standard Theatrical trailer and a chapter search but it also has two neat extras, a Production Featurette and a Filmmakers’ Featurette. They are about 4 to 5 minutes long each. The Production Featurette is Jerry Bruckheimer talking about the movie and his thoughts about the film. The other featurette is basically the same except its the director, Tony Scott, giving some insight to the film.
