Enemy Movie Review – Jake Gyllenhaal, Denis Villeneuve, Chozhan, and More

If you’ve seen any of the aforementioned movies, you know that they’re laden with ambiguity. That’s why this enemy movie review is centered on the performances of Jake Gyllenhaal, Denis Villeneuve, Vishal Krishna, and Chozhan. But before we get to the movie review, let’s talk a little bit about the plot. This film is a dark fantasy that tries to convince audiences that it’s an excellent movie.

Jake Gyllenhaal

Jake Gyllenhaal plays a mild-mannered college professor who discovers a man who looks just like him and begins to investigate the man’s private affairs. This action-thriller has a very different tone than the previous two Jake Gyllenhaal films, and will have audiences talking for days. Jake Gyllenhaal’s likable, well-received character is perfect for this type of film.

Denis Villeneuve

Director Denis Villeneuve has a history of injecting serious issues into thrillers. In “Prisoners,” he adapted a Kafka novel for the screen. In his latest film, “Enemy,” he combines the same kind of style. But like its predecessor, “Prisoners” suffers from some of the same pitfalls. Despite its genre-bending plot, Villeneuve’s newest is a surprisingly strong thriller.

Vishal Krishna

Despite a lack of a gripping screenplay, Vishal Krishna in enemy is a watchable mass masala thriller. The main characters (Arya and Vishal) are good and the film is entertaining enough. However, the film does not meet its potential, and the plot is far too thin. The movie’s characters are neither wicked nor clever enough to be rooted for. The action sequences are bland and contrived, while the dialogues are drab and unintentionally funny.


My favorite actor Vishal in a recent Tamil film is a bit overshadowed in Chozhan. He is adequate in the lead role but the movie suffers from a lack of suspense. While his performances aren’t weak, he is overshadowed by his underwhelming love interest. Thankfully, the film is a decent watch despite its flaws. Vishal’s Chozhan is a good role for him, but his lack of chemistry with Arya is a let down.

Metaphysical premise

The metaphysical premise of enemy is a little iffy, but its excellent cast and strong production values compensate for it. The film, which closes the 39th Belgrade Film Festival, reworks the classic fable of the doppleganger, with a modern horror twist. It also benefits from strong performances, witty dialogue, and a genuinely ominous atmosphere. It’s also a decent counterpoint to Villeneuve’s other movie, Prisoners. It’s also a smidgeon of the metaphysical thriller genre that draws comparisons to Zodiac, Mystic River, and Zodiac.

Production value

‘Enemy’ is a well-made action thriller. Its core concept of a rivalry between two teenage brothers is a good one. Its twist involving Arya’s secret wife, and its macho climax will keep you watching right through to the end. The production values are high. Even if you don’t agree with the story, the movie is worth watching. The songs are excellent and the background score is well-done by Sam CS.

Diametrically opposed characters

The plot of Diametrically Opposed Characters is as intriguing as it is unpredictable. The two main characters are polar opposites, yet they find common ground in their shared aversion to each other. The movie is based on the novel by Saramago “The Double.” Despite the surreal premise, Enemy never feels like a safe adaptation, but it is a solid translation of a surreal text to visuals.
