Review: The Bourne Identity

Director: Paul Greengrass

Starring: Matt Damon

Year: 2002

Genre: Action/Adventure

Rated: PG-13

Length: 119 min.

IMDB Summary: A man is picked up by a fishing boat, bullet-riddled and without memory, then races to elude assassins and recover from amnesia.

Brimming with action and suspense, The Bourne Identity is an impressive kickoff to the Bourne trilogy. Damon excels as Jason Bourne, a man who remembers nothing of his past as a hit man. Although the plot elements of top-secret government programs and hit men targeting civilians may not be unheard of, The Bourne Identity surpasses many similar films due to its fast-paced stunt work, mind-blowing chase scenes and nuanced music. There are shocks and surprises around every corner. When you watch The Bourne Identity, expect the unexpected.

For Parents:
Violence is the primary issue--there are numerous shootings and a man is stabbed by a pen. Some strong language.
