Enemy of the State | 1998 | R | - 3.6.8

Will Smith is targeted by the government in this conspiratorial thriller. Gene Hackman, Jon Voight, Gabriel Byrne, Jason Lee, Jamie Kennedy, Regina King and Scott Caan co-star.

SEX/NUDITY 3 - On a video a couple kiss and undress down to her underwear and she kneels in front of him (implying oral sex) but the scene is brief and blurry. A couple kiss while he opens her robe displaying her bra and panties. Scantily clad women are seen.

VIOLENCE/GORE 6 - There's a shootout showing bodies jerking and some blood; the aftermath shows bloody bodies, and a bloody floor and sheet. A man is shot in the hand (we see lots of blood). A man is hit by a car but uninjured, but then he's hit by a fire engine; we see his twisted body and blood on his face and the pavement. A car crash leaves a man with a bloody face; the car and man are shown briefly on fire. A man is nearly hit by a train and several people are nearly hit by cars when they peek out of a manhole. A bloody cut on someone's head is shown a couple of times. There is a fire and an explosion. There are a couple of face punches, some scuffles and a man is kicked to the floor. People have very bruised faces in a few scenes and a man is bitten by a dog. There are a few scenes of reckless driving and lots of chases. We see shootings, fights, etc., and protesters in bloody shirts on a blurry video. A man is given a sedative by injection then his car is pushed underwater.

CAVEATS

Be aware that while we do our best to avoid spoilers it is impossible to disguise all details and some may reveal crucial plot elements.

We've gone through several editorial changes since we started covering films in 1992 and older reviews are not as complete & accurate as recent ones; we plan to revisit and correct older reviews as resources and time permits.

Our ratings and reviews are based on the theatrically-released versions of films; on video there are often Unrated, Special, Director's Cut or Extended versions, (usually accurately labelled but sometimes mislabeled) released that contain additional content, which we did not review.
