The Bourne Identity
If you are anything like me, the mere idea of an espionage-infused spy thriller ranks pretty low on your list of must-sees. It's not because the genre is deficient or unexciting, but because all of the decent stories have already been told, all the cool gadgets have been seen, and all the explosions and car chases have been done to death. I mean seriously,
how many times are we going to see the American/British superspy open a back channel to the Russian/German superspy thereby saving the world from something horrible and insidious? Even lampoons of the espionage genre are tired.
Thankfully, in The Bourne Identity, the stakes are much lower than saving the world and the result is a cozy ride. When our hero is pulled aboard a fishing boat with a couple bullets in his back, no memory, and a number tattooed on his side, thus begins a search for the man we will come to know as Jason Bourne (Matt Damon) trying to figure out who he is, all the while leaving a trail of bodies and dodging assassins.
The Bourne Supremacy
It's been a few years since Jason Bourne (Matt Damon) finally escaped his past in The Bourne Identity. He's now moving from place to place with Marie (Franka Potente) and trying to elude any more danger. But danger again finds Bourne in the form of a nasty assassin named Kirill (Karl Urban) who comes after Bourne in a small village. With Bourne's life in danger once again, he decides to beat his would-be captors to the punch and hunt them. Julia Styles returns as Nicky. Also joining the cast this time around are veteran actors Brian Cox as Ward Abbot and Joan Allen as Agent Pamela Landy. Both are out to eliminate the problematic Bourne once and for all.
This Bourne adventure is directed by Paul Greengrass (Bloody Sunday). Like Doug Liman before him, producers Frank Marshall and Patrick Crowley chose to go with a less obvious director from the indie scene. Greengrass does a good job of picking up where the first film left off. Bourne is a ticking time bomb with abilities that seem to come out of nowhere. This serves the film's many action sequences and makes Bourne a consistently fascinating character to watch.
The Bourne Ultimatum
Jason Bourne indeed comes home in The Bourne Ultimatum and, boy, what a homecoming. The Paul Greengrass-directed sequel is a slam-bang conclusion to one of the most unique and adult action franchises ever produced by a major studio, and leaves the audience hoping that series star Matt Damon will reconsider his statement that this is the final Bourne film.
Ultimatum is the most relentlessly-paced entry in the frenetic series, starting off in mid-action just weeks after The Bourne Supremacy left off. An injured Jason Bourne, a.k.a. David Webb (Damon), escapes from Russia and is making his way through Europe when he reads an article about himself in Britain's The Guardian newspaper.
So these are some of the best action thrillers you can ever see since they are very close to reality. SO hope you'll enjoy and comment if you like my lowest size torrent you can ever get.:)
