Will Smith puts aside his clowning histrionice and surprises with an efficient and charismatic performance that shows he can go much further. Choppy action scenes and a script that values the character's intelligence make this movie one of the biggest exponents of its kind in the decade.
Mr. Gene Hackman and Mr. Will Smith are superior actors. I especially enjoyed the credibility of each scene as well as the special effects in this movie. Mr. Will Smith has a great talent for blending comedy with action in his movies. Mr. Gene Hackman (in my opinion) has always been a master at making his character come alive to the point to where you'd almost forget that it's only a movie. Great movie all the way across the board.
Will Smith Gene Hackman and Tony Scott work well together
Will Smith in his prime. It has a ton of suspense and mystery behind it's simple plot. The ending is what sells it.
Not sure who watched this and became engrossed with all the exposition attempting to build mystery or excitement. The actors pretty much explain themselves time and again, in every scene.
You're basically waiting for more exposition in the dialogue at every turn.
Watching for the first time 20 year later, I enjoyed the cast very much . The movie not so much
Silly at times but extremely watchable from the late, great Tony Scott.
Will Smith played the role of a very STUPID lawyer, whose repeated screw ups should cost his own life. But instead, his stupidity killed a lot of people. It's very irritating to watch such a badly written script and badly directed movie. The only thing good about this movie is the story itself, which is closer to the truth than we'd like to believe. The deep corruption in DC, driven by evil corporations, have been controlling our government for too long. And the story as presented in this movie has brought to light the real ugly side of the government today.
Although it is a blockbuster thriller with a Hollywood happy ending, this is also one of the first movies to realistically deal with modern high-tech surveillance and the state offensive against personal privacy, which has in recent years become a very hot issue. In the movie, a conservative politician, high up in the U.S. National Security Agency (NSA), is trying to push through legislation that would drastically increase the power of the intelligence community and at the same virtually abolish the right to privacy. He organizes the killing of a politician who tries to prevent the passing of this Act and, after the murder goes wrong, he engages his subordinates at the NSA to cover up the crime, and remove all the people who could endanger him…
Excelente Dilema, no es un plantamiento muy rebuscado, entretenida
