Critic Reviews of "Enemy of the State"Chicago ReaderMarch 30, 2009
[Its] spirited action is balanced by an almost contemplative attitude toward surveillance phobias and the movie cliches they've spawned.Time OutJanuary 26, 2006
Add Smith's lippy innocent and a host of subcontracted indie fresh faces, and you have the Bruckheimer formula: loud, lavish, seemingly efficient; over-large, over-long, over-plotted. Safe and sorry.Houston ChronicleJuly 21, 2005
Since Scott could not make this film snap, crackle or pop faster or more loudly, you might find the evening a bit light.San Francisco ChronicleJune 18, 2002
Hard to sit through.Globe and MailMarch 19, 2002
From there, with the mystery entirely gone and the thrills fading fast, the rest is pretty much a two-hour chase sequence, culminating in a hilariously maladroit shoot-out.Rolling StoneMay 11, 2001
What do you say about a movie that sends you home in a frenzy to search for bugs? In the new age of Big Brother, that's entertainment.Antagony & EcstasyAugust 01, 2013
As a simple thriller that wants only to excite and intensify, it's one of the better ones that the late '90s produced.Common Sense MediaDecember 24, 2010
Decent thriller; not suitable for kids.Film4March 30, 2009
A highly enjoyable hi-tech thriller.Reel Film ReviewsJuly 22, 2006
Distinctly uneven but generally entertaining...7M PicturesJune 08, 2006
If you want to believe in the dark side of government, we are already past the predictions of Enemy of the State.Movie MetropolisMay 14, 2006
...it's the action, not the acting, that is the key to the movie's success, and that's where it excels with its constant momentum.
