Guide Review - "The Bourne Identity" DVD Review
Matt Damon stars in this slick action movie about a spy with amnesia who discovers he has a Swiss bank account. In Zurich, he accesses a safe deposit box containing money and a passport in the name of Jason Bourne, a Paris resident. Bourne hires a woman named Marie (Franka Potente) to drive him to Paris, and they fall for each other. Meanwhile, at CIA headquarters in Virginia, agents work up a plan to deal with Bourne, who is one of their trained assassins. The CIA dispatches a team to kill him, and Bourne and Marie must avoid the killers any way they can. I found this movie to be well-paced with exciting action sequences and charming European locations. If youre just looking for pure entertainment, I highly recommend this film.
