The story of the film is based around the character, named Jason Bourne, who is played by Matt Damon. In this movie, Bourne gets amnesia while working on a case for the CIA. When he finds out that he was involve in some type of conspiracy act with the CIA, he struggles to find out what his involvement was, and who he really is. Along the way, he will team up with different people, but because he cannot remember anything, it is hard for him to know who he can trust and who he cannot. Of course, if there is one thing that he does not forget how to do in the movie, The Bourne Identity, it is how to kick butt. He may not remember who he is, but what he does not forget, is all of his CIA training. Later on in the movie, all this training comes in handy when he finds out that the CIA may be out to kill him. This is a movie full of twists, and is like no other movie out there. Since this movie came out years ago, a lot of other movies have tried to be just like it, but they always end up failing. That is because it is hard to improve something that has been done perfectly already. When you finally do see this movie (if you have not already), you are going to want to see it again. Because of that I cannot tell you to go out and rent this movie. Instead of wasting money renting it, you should go out and buy the film.
I love The Bourne Identity. It is an action packed movie that has a great back story. I hate all those action movies that have a whole lot of killing for no reason. I need to see a movie that is going to show how great it is, and if there is some killing mixed in, well that is just the way it has to be. I would rather a movie have a great plot in it, than just a whole bunch of killing. To me this movie is something that has just the right mix of both, and that, my friends, is what makes a great movie. When you can find just the right mix of these elements, then you have a four star movie on your hands.
