Final Destination 5
Death (the script writers) got real lazy. Instead of manipulating different forces and circumstances by the 5th movie things "just break". Man making a 1 inch cut into top layer of concrete? Entire bridge self-destructs. Doctor steps out of room? Laser power supply sparks, increasing the power level, and then, again for no reason, the laser inexplicably activates itself. Final Destination is truly a milked franchise.

Enemy Of The State
It's easy to steal personal belongings from someone who's just been killed on the street in front of countless witnesses and CCTV cameras. Just walk right up to the mutilated body in the middle of the road and take all of his stuff before casually walking away. Neither the onlookers at the scene or the investigating authorities will want to know who you are.

    Enemy Of The State
    It's perfectly fine to forget about the photographer's friend. It's just so obvious to the audience that the character isn't going to get curious as to why his friend inexplicably got killed in bizarre circumstances on the very same day he was going to deliver an incriminating video tape.

      Enemy Of The State
      Saying a character is a retired NSA operative covers you later when the ENTIRE FACTORY BUILDING explodes in a massive fireball. 'Retired NSA operative' obviously means you'll have enough explosives to wire the entire building to explode and will need to wire every floor to explode instead of say... just the one with your spy equipment in.

        Enemy Of The State
        Some trash written in the newspapers (nothing new) about a woman you knew years ago and the threat of investigating your previous work virtually guarantees that you get fired from your job. In addition it's expected that you sit back and let your employers (who you've worked with for years) ask inappropriate questions about your private life.

          Enemy Of The State
          A super secret classified tracking device (that pulses at an insane 24 (twenty four) Giga Hertz, not 2.4 as is written in the script) that can transmit through huge concrete and steel structures... can be easily defeated by the thin foil of a crisp packet!

            Enemy Of The State
            The US government has OVER 100 (one hundred) spy satellites looking down at the earth! How many millions does it take to actually launch something into orbit, let alone design and construct super secret spy satellites? Damn that's one hell of a budget and coordination system they've got setup to have OVER 100 spy satellites.

              There is virtually no delay inherit to the complexities of altering a satellite's orbit or direction to observe specified co-ordinates. Just shout LAT and LONG coordinates and BAM, instant live real-time footage within 5 seconds!

                The thick clouds of an overcast day, and cloud cover in general, does absolutely nothing to hinder the insane level of detail and quality provided by super secret spy satellites... which, as shown by the movie, is nothing more than a visible image in full colour.

If you use a simulation full of sentient programs that took you and your colleagues six years to construct as nothing more than a playground to have sex with underage girls, your colleagues will think nothing less of you and act as if it's not a big deal.

Furthermore, waking up and suddenly having a large battered hat from thin air also doesn't constitute hard evidence.

Given you were the one that dialed 911, you are sure not to be hiding anything so shouldn't even be frisked or so much as asked to turn out your pockets.
