I am usually unimpressed by movies from producer Jerry Bruckheimer. But this thriller (starring Will Smith and Gene Hackman) was much better than I expected. Very good pacing and some interesting, technophobic food for thought (surveillance & electronic sabotage) makes this paranoia movie worth seeing. In addition, It’s not as thoughtful as The Conversation, but it’s still pretty good.
