The Bourne Identity (Doug Liman, 2002): A man is found floating in the Mediterranean Sea and is hauled onto a fishing boat. When the ship's doctor examines the unconscious castaway, he discovers two bullet wounds and an implanted device that displays a Swiss bank account number... Doug Liman's adaptation of Robert Ludlum's best-selling novel is a remarkable exercise in storytelling, with the director wisely choosing to focus on Bourne and his quest for identity. The fight sequences are thrilling, but never overly glamorised, and the film's pacing is engaging and deliberate. Damon, who displays genuine bewilderment as his character discovers his almost-superhuman abilities, anchors the proceedings with the subtle charm of an unlikely action hero. Potente also shines as Bourne's road companion, a savvy woman who slowly builds an utterly believable relationship with the confused man. Bearing distinct affinity for its European setting and classic Hollywood suspense films, The Bourne Identity succeeds as an unusually smart character-driven thriller.
The Bourne Supremacy (Paul Greengrass, 2004): High action spy & suspense thriller with Damon as Jason Bourne, a man who thought he had escaped his past. He's wrong of course, and he's soon out to find his would-be killers. Moody photography enhances the urban European locations, and handheld camerawork and fast editing keeps the action realistic and effects free. Vividly capturing the fatalist flavor of Robert Ludlum's original novel, this is globalist noir at its finest.
