The Bourne Identity

  • Mmm... these guys will never know what hit them...

The Robert Ludlum novel finally makes it to the big screen. Our hero, the titular Jason Bourne, is fished out of the water off the French coast, with two bullets in his back and a serious case of amnesia. His only clue is the name and number of a Swiss bank account. Getting to Switzerland, he discovers that he owns a huge pile of cash, some weapons and several passports, all his own, with different names. As he tries to unravel his past, he has to deal with the French police, and the CIA, desperate to terminate him. He finds that he has unique -- and deadly -- survival skills which he can't explain.

Visitor Comments
Ian Douglas: Well, the American James Bond is actually pretty good as far as his Secret Agent skills go. If the character is in any way based on reality, then those guys are exceptionally well trained. As far as the movie goes, it seems to lack something, and I'm not sure what... it is a little different in that it is not the usual ''one man saves the world from an evil tyrant'' type plot. In fact, it is more of a road movie, where the hero travels from point A to point B, having various adventures -- in this case, killing people who are trying to kill him -- along the way. Other reviewers have pointed out the sparkless romance subplot. There are several holes in the plot, perhaps they are better handled in the novel. I suppose fans of the secret-agent genre will find this worthwhile.
