Matt Damon is Jason Bourne

Matt Damon as Jason BourneI saw a pumped up Matt Damon on The Bourne Identity last weekend. Sadly, I am a sucker for this kind of action-movie. They have little point but tell a tale that absorbs your for 90 minutes and gives you an all-action thrill for some of that time. What more do you want from a cinema-going experience?

My Review: Who would that thought Matt Damon could, convincingly, play the international agent? Yet a beefed up-Matt holds his own in the world of blockbuster-espionage – that’s a world of martial art acrobatics and high-speed car chases down back alleyways (and flights of stairs). Franka Potente manages to keep the role of Marie convincing when many would have just walked away from Jason Bourne (Damon) at their first meeting. It’s a Friday night, action-packed, spy-game blockbuster (with a twist of amnesia) and, unfortunately, nothing more.
