The story was adjusted a little from the book "Seven Days in May" by Fletcher Knebel to accommodate the media; however the essence of the story is still there.

We are not out of the woods today. Anyway the President William Foster (Sam Waterston) is planning a disarmament treaty. Everyone knows including the president that the Soviets never keep a promise. How ever something has to be done and the President thinks he has a workable plan. Openly opposed to the plan is General R. Pendleton Lloyd (Jason Robards) sot of a Douglas Macarthur of his time. Being opposed is one thing; however the constitution leaves only one way to handle this situation (the election). Yea right. Colonel MacKenzie 'Mac' Casey (Forest Whitaker), Lloyd's right hand man gets suspicious. He thinks Lloyd is planning "Yea right" for real and brings this suspicion to the Whitehouse.

As the story unfolds is the threat real and if so what can be done about it? Whose side are you on? If you were Mac working for a great General and a good friend, what would you do? Where should loyalty lay? If the president relied on blackmail, would he be any better then the opposition? How would the Soviets react to a military take over in the US?

This is a very good remake of "Seven Days in May" (1964).

It goes to show that the theme even thought it was conceived during the cold war that it is still timeless. They did not distract from the script trying to be politically correct. It is wroth watching both versions.

OK let's face the real question this movie poses. Does the end justify the means? Or is the end the results of the means?

An unusual thriller. The military chiefs within The Pentagon fearing a loss of men & equipment with a world now more peaceful, set about making sure their influence and power will not be diminished. Even if this means bringing down a President. Will Colonel Casey (played brilliantly by Forest Whitaker)convince the Oval Office that The Pentagon are ready to take over? Or will no-one listen to a low ranking officer that his superiors are not just playing when it comes to 'Operation Slam Dunk'. With a superb supporting cast including Dana Delaney and Sam Waterston. This is a film that will keep you on the edge of your seat until the very end.

Although not a remake of Rod Serling's script for me the movie Seven Days in May, this movie and the for mentioned have a lot in common. Both are great movies. I recommend both, The Enemy Within and Seven Days in May. Both have solid scripts, great casts, and will keep you on the edge of your seat.
