Overrated, but entertaining action flick

Though it's not quite the incredible film critics were making it out to be, The Bourne Identity manages to entertain the whole way through, and it's hard to imagine someone being bored during the film.

A body of a man is found floating in the ocean. This man has no idea who he is, who he was, or anything about his past. His ability to speak many different languages and provide detailed summaries about surroundings and people by just glancing at them suggests he was part of something big. Turns out, his name is Jason Bourne. And he's an assassin, and a good one. But now, he's on the run with the girl, in order to figure out more about his past, and not die.

As I watched the film, I was constantly reminded of another action film I saw recently: The Fugitive. The Fugitive was a 90's ...

The Bourne Identity review

The man who retrograde amnesia adopts the identity of Jason Bourne (Matt Damon), only remembers the account number to a safe deposit box. Marie Kreutz (Franka Potente) is approached by Bourne and is offered $20,000 to take him to Paris. Alexander Conklin (Chris Cooper), the head of Treadstone, reveals to his superior Deputy Director Ward Abbott (Brian Cox), that Bourne was the covert operative responsible for a failed assassination attempt on African dictator Nykwana Wombosi (Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje). "The Professor" (Clive Owen) is involved with a mission of Bourne’s.

It boasts one of the best and fresh fight scenes on screen. The plot became clear towards its conclusion and lines were a bit uninvolved at times because of the story’s pace. Damon and Pontente have good onscreen...

"The Bourne Identity" by Yojimbo

A fishing vessel rescues a bullet-riddled amnesiac from the ocean and upon reaching shore, he discovers that not only is he a world class ass kicker but nearly every government agency in the world seems to want him dead. Along with Ronin, The Bourne Identity heralded a new era of high octane grittiness for the action thriller and a decade on, it actually stands up pretty well. Of course the "hi tec" aspects look a little dated, but it's still a breathlessly exciting conspiracy thriller that dispenses with any irrelevances and gets straight down to the bare bones of a tire screeching, bone crunching rollercoaster ride. Matt Damon is the perfect combination of hard case and bemused victim and Franka Potente makes a much more interesting romantic interest than the generic dead-eyed bimbette ...

Excellent in Every Respect

Engaging in every way, this is my idea of an adrenaline-fueled escapism at its best. With only three movies out, I think this matched the best installments of the "James Bond" franchise. "Identity" set up the mystery that ran in the veins of the other two and the film did so with such grace. From its opening sequence, Matt Damon convinced us that he is Jason Bourne--even though he turns out to be an assassin, the audience still care for and identify with him. That's hard to achieve. There are a lot of classic scenes in this movie. My favourite has got to be the silent but deadly duel between Matt Damon and Clive Owen near the end of the film. It was done with such focus and intelligence to the point where I was weak at the end of it. It's funny because silent moments are the strong points...

Don't Tread On Me

When a rouge assassin of the classified Treadstone project, Jason Bourne, is found floating twenty miles off of the Mediterranean coastline, amnesia-stricken Bourne must rely on skills and abilities he didn’t know he had in order to stay one step ahead of a relentless government agency out to terminate him. This movie was clever in the way that it brought you a cunning and easily understood spy story that left out all of the Tom Clancy jargon that complicates more than it compliments. Matt Damon also becomes a commendable addition to the list of spyconsą to date, delivering an explosive performance not only as a mysterious agent, but a man who can get results…
Ultimately, this is everything you could order off of the espionage menu, be it cool guns, explosions, incredible martial arts o...
