Plot outline: Based very loosely on Robert Ludlum's novel, the Bourne Identity is the story of a man whose wounded body is discovered by fisherman who nurse him back to health. He can remember nothing and begins to try to rebuild his memory based on clues such as the Swiss bank account, the number of which, is implanted in his hip. He soon realizes that he is being hunted and takes off with Marie on a search to find out who he is and why he is being hunted. Summary written by ibjsm On a stormy night, a young man is pulled out of the Mediterranean Sea by the crew of a fishing boat. Thinking the young man is dead, a curious fisherman with a scalpel finds two bullets in his back and a miniature laser device in his hip. The laser reveals a Swiss bank account number. But our wet hero isn't dead, and soon finds himself in Zurich. In the bank vault the young man discovers his name, Jason Bourne. In addition, he finds a baffling pile of different passports, all with his picture, and a huge pile of cash. In the U.S. Embassy, Jason Bourne discovers his love interest and travel partner, Marie, along with the fact that someone wants to kill him. Armed with a bag of money and mysterious martial arts skills, with Marie by his side, Bourne scours Paris for clues about his identity and past life... and finds himself in the middle of two assassination plots masterminded by the CIA. Summary written by Joshua Bess
Comment: I liked this one fine. It reminded me more of 'Ronin' than anything else-French locale, gritty car race around Paris, ummmmmm lo-techie f/x and the like, overcast look to everything. Take DeNiro from 'Ronin' and make him Matt Damon, give him anmesia, and you kinda got him. I liked how Damon came off-usually he is either too goober looking(big dum lug ala 'Private Ryan') or goes the other way-plays the Boston area ivy leaguer(most of his roles...)...This was done the right way. What was that little red car they go racing around in-a Peugot? Fiat?-what a pip. You don't believe for a second that half-baked Chevette could do all the Dukes of Hazzard stuff they make it do-but hey that's alright. This IS a movie after all, one they delayed for some reason by a year. Casting-Damon as I said was good. Chris Cooper usually is better ala 'LoneStar', here he seemed forced. I like him better as a good guy. Julie Stiles, while as cute as a button(honing that Kathleen Turner jr bit again), is given Nothing to do besides be a glorified Operator. Very strange casting to see such a well known type in a minor role. Minor spoiler: LOL part-when Cooper sez to Damon: Heck I could send Nikki(Stiles) to kill you-- Yeah Right guys. We believe THAT. I also couldn't put my finger on where Potente was from-the UK? Cali? France? Her accent keeps shifting. Turns out she is German. Okay THAT makes sense, I guess... See this, Spy Game and maybe Ronin for comparison purposes......In general, it's entertaining, sorta believable and it's also smarter than most of the other stuff they put out in summer *** outta ****
