Bourne Identity, The (2002) 
Excellent in Every Respect
4/4 stars

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 of the "Bourne" series yet it is an action-thriller film. It's ironic because action films strive to be loud, with guns and grenades going off all over the place. The "Bourne" series is humble and quiet... yet manages to throw powerful punches. Matt Damon is known in films like the "Ocean's" franchise and "Good Will Hunting." But I will always, always define him as Jason Bourne, the charismatic assassin in search for the truth regarding his identity.
