About the Movie

"A new action hero is Bourne!" (Access Hollywood) Get ready for the explosive, action-packed hit with incredible fight sequences, starring Academy Award® winner Matt Damon (Ocean's Eleven). Pulled from sea with two bullets in his back, Jason Bourne discovers he has the skills of a very dangerous man and no memory of his violent past. Racing to unlock the secret of his own identity, he discovers the deadly truth: he's an elite government agent. But to the government, Jason Bourne isn't just their property, he's a malfunctioning thirty million dollar weapon. Lethally trained, built to disappear, he's an agent on the run who has to be taken out. Now, the government's top operative has become it's number one target, in a supercharged, thrill-a-minute spectacular loaded with "Non-stop action!" (Bill Zwecker, FOX-TV)

Fresh: The Bourne Identity is no mere summer amusement park ride. It's as gray as Go was colorful and a cool contrast to its source material. – Mark Caro, Chicago Tribune, Jul 7, 2010

Fresh: There are moments that feel just on the edge of silly, but that's the idea. – Mick LaSalle, San Francisco Chronicle, Jul 7, 2010

Best movie ever!


This is a good movie (8/10, B, and 74%) but now the best. I still think that they could have put a little more into it. The Bourne Identity is also nothing compared to The Bourne Ultimatum. This is a very good thrilling, action and adventure movie with a very good plot. The actors and actresses are amazing too! I've seen it multiple times and it was pretty good.
