Enemy of the State
As the movie opens, legislation is pending to expand surveillance powers of law enforcement agencies. Republican Congressman Phil Hammersley (Jason Robards, uncredited), who is trying to stop the bill because he believes it's an invasion of privacy, is killed by two rogue NSA agents loyal to Thomas Reynolds (Jon Voight), an official trying to push the bill to secure a promotion for himself within the agency. The agents then plant a bottle of heart medication at the scene to make it look as though Congressman Hammersley died from a heart attack. They are not aware that the murder is being recorded by a video camera aimed directly across the lake used to track migratory patterns of Canada Geese.
