This Will Smith vehicle/political paranoia potboiler was the last film credited to the blockbuster producing team of Simpson-Bruckheimer (Top Gun, Flashdance, Beverly Hills Cop, The Rock, ad profitum; Don Simpson died of a drug overdose in 1996) and features another big, brash, largely synthesized swashbuckler of a score by the Armageddon team of former Yes guitarist Trevor Rabin and musician-composer Harry Gregson-Williams. But then how could it be otherwise when one's music has to share the soundtrack with copious gunshots, explosions, screeching tires, and the sound of costar Gene Hackman gleefully gnashing at the scenery? There are enough '90s techno influences to ensure that it sounds contemporary, and adequate string interludes to keep the cap on the Advil. --Jerry McCulley

"The success key to all Jerry Bruckheimer films is the brilliant music score. Stuff the songs. The score is what makes a film. Be it Hans Zimmer, Trevor Rabin, Mark Mancina or Harry Gregson Williams... The guy knows what'll go. Enemy of the state starts off with a perfect theme which gets you into the action mood, then takes you deeper into the emotional mood. Not very artistic, but it's commercial score at a very high level. Go Jerry Bruckheimer!!!"

"The overall score was worth sampling and purchasing. Despite the inaccurate portrayal of the agency, its functions/duties, and capabilities, the soundtrack does incite certain moods and emotions that parallels the mentality of those who dedicate their life to serving in silence. Succinctly, this is worth listening to and can serve as an acoustic-motivational factor for any person pursuing intelligence endeavors for this country. In God We Trust, In All Others We Monitor.
