Trivia

In the novel and the earlier version of the film, Seven Days in May (1964), the character played here by Forest Whitaker was named Martin "Jiggs" Casey. The nickname, which in the context of an African-American actor was a racial epithet, was clearly inappropriate and was not used. See more »

Goofs

The entire premise of the Presidential takeover in the film implies that the moment the Cabinet members and the Vice President declare the president unfit for duty, he will be removed from office. However, Section 4 of the 25th Amendment outlines a detailed procedure for the manner in which a President may appeal a declaration that he is incompetent. The procedures specifies that the Vice President and the Cabinet may then re-state their case, in which afterwards the matter is forwarded to Congress. The stipulations of the 25th Amendment are in place to prevent exactly the type of scenario which is shown in the film. See more »

Dramatic, Intriguing and Suspenseful
24 December 2005 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

Dramatic, Intriguing and Suspenseful, "The Enemy Within" is an excellent political thriller that will appeal to anyone who can think outside the norm. While I haven't seen the original "Seven Days in May", I think that the comments that this movie it is poorly cast and acted are very much mistaken as the actors do the intriguing plot and thrilling scenarios, more than justice. Forest Whitaker is especially good in his role as Colonel Casey and does an outstanding job in bringing a sense of realism and authenticity to his character. Don't let the negative comments put you off, "The Enemy Within" is a great movie that will have your heart pounding and mind thinking.
