    A Good Remake of Seven Days In May, January 8, 2008

    Matthew Kresal (North Alabama) –

    This review is from: Enemy Within (DVD)
    The Enemy Within is a well-done remake of one of my favorite films Seven Days In May. While of course not as good as the 1964 classic this film still packs quite a punch delivering the original’s frightening and all-too possible scenario. This is despite being too briskly paced and lacking Rod Serling’s script.

    Forest Witiker does well as Colonel Cassey though he is a little hard to watch at times. Sam Waterston does well as the Southern President and its a shame we don’t see more of him. Dana Delaney really doesn’t add much to the film but she plays a necessary role in the film. And of Jason Robards does well as the villain of the film as Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff General R. Pendleton Lloyd.

    While there are numerous subplots removed and some added (though the Russians weren’t really needed in this film) the film still manages to be true to the classic’s plot. The script manages to convey a sense of urgency in the story and the revelations are revealed in a nice manor. The film has a little bit of action in it and these scenes are mostly unnecessary but they don’t hurt the film very much.

    Overall The Enemy Within is a better then average made for TV movie. As I wrote above this film is not in the same caliber as the original film, but this film it still manages to present a frightening and all-too possible scenario. A nice little suspense film to pass your time with and it’s nothing more and nothing less then that.

    I thought this movie was very gripping. I love movies that portray mostly military themes and this movie took that portrayal one step further by combining the elements of espionage and military power.

    I saw this movie when it first came out on video and as a former Marine myself this movie represents what it truly means to be a US MArine and the believe we all have that this country is one worth saving watch this video and feel what it means to stand up for something you believe in
