Film review:- The Bourne Identity.
Well this move starts like an X-File, but soon goes straight into the action.  The film is to some extent predictable and does not have a good twist, but the action and special effects soon make up for that.  The film has a very good car chase, and shows Hollywood's new obsession with the UK's most popular small car... the Mini.  
Academy Award® winner Matt Damon plays a very convincing role as Jason Bourne, a man who appears floating in the Mediterranean Sea, with no ID and has been shot.  He is soon picked up by a passing fishing boat, who take out two bullets and a device that displays a Swiss bank account number.   So Bourne sets off to find out his ID and travels to the bank in Zurick.  Well needless to say this then sets him running from the system and to get away he offers $20,000 for a ride to Paris and hitches up with Marie Kreutz.  M Kreutz played by Franka Potente is a dizzy personality, who as expected, falls in love with Bourne.  At the same time  Nykwana Wombosi, played by Abewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje, leads us to Bourne's dark side as numerous assassins track them down.  As their situation grows more perilous, the two strangers struggle to find out who Bourne really is and why they are both Bourne and his new found friend Kreutz are being hunted.  All the time the film is shot around fantastic stunts and dramatic European backdrops.

This film is well worth a view, 4 stars yet again!
