Great acting from the 2 big boys make this completely believable, fast paced thriller. Clever plot which completely freaked an old techno-phobe like me!!!


Enemy of the State

It's Not Paranoia If They're Really After You.

When lawyer Robert Clayton Dean meets an old pal accidentally, he does not know the trouble that is going to hit him. His pal, being pursued badly, slips him a disc without Robert reckoning – before being killed. Soon, Robert is believed to have something that others want – but what? Later, he stumbles across a setup that would render him the main suspect of a gruesome murder, hadn't he dropped by. Being shown several bugs by Brill, a trustable contact of the victim, Robert learns quickly about the fire he's playing with – and decides to win instead of giving up.

The murder case of a staged suicide by a U.S. congressman may cause some heads to roll, if the disc containing the proof can be found in time and delivered to its destination – by the right party, that is.

Critic Reviews:

  • " Far ahead of its time in educating society on its rapidly diminishing freedoms from governmental scrutiny, the screenplay favorably manages not to forget to entertain. " -Mike Massie
  • " Scott creates suspense by utilizing believable technology and realistic, well-grounded characters. " – Michael Gaither
  • " Decent thriller; not suitable for kids. " – Nell Minow
