At first glance, boyish Matt Damon might strike you as unsuited to play a formidable secret agent, but he does remarkably well in the role in this intricate, action-packed, and well-crafted spy thriller.

Barnes & Noble - Ed Hulse
At first glance, boyish Matt Damon might strike you as unsuited to play a formidable secret agent, but he does remarkably well in the role in this intricate, action-packed, and well-crafted spy thriller. Adapted from the bestselling novel by Robert Ludlum, The Bourne Identity opens with the rescue of a badly wounded amnesiac Damon, who carries beneath his skin a tiny capsule bearing the number of a Swiss bank account. Upon recovering, the befuddled young man claims a veritable fortune -- and passports bearing several different names -- from his safety deposit box. Understandably eager to find out which one of these identities is his real one, he hires a young Gypsy woman Run Lola Run’s Franka Potente to drive him to Paris. From this point, the script by Tony Gilroy and William Blake Herron gets incredibly complicated; the Damon character, who uses his "Jason Bourne" identity for the time being, becomes the object of repeated assassination attempts, which he foils by employing skills he never knew he had. Fine character actors Chris Cooper and Brian Cox are chillingly convincing as CIA bigwigs who decide that "Bourne" must be eliminated and assign their top assassin Clive Owen to do the job quickly and, if possible, quietly. Doug Liman Swingers directs with headlong single-mindedness, hurling his protagonist into one death trap after another and extricating him with dizzying speed. Wintry European exteriors and drab interior settings give the film a grayish cast, but The Bourne Identity isn’t about pretty pictures; it’s about international intrigue and one man’s refusal to be a pawn in some sinister, global chess game. Improbable but engrossing, The Bourne Identity will keep you poised on the edge of your chair.
Barnes & Noble - Ed Hulse
This rousing sequel to The Bourne Identity, again starring Matt Damon as the amnesiac ex-spy created by bestselling author Robert Ludlum, boasts a stronger cast, muscular direction, and quicksilver pacing. It begins with Jason Bourne and his lover Franka Potente, also repeating her role from the original enjoying life in a tropical paradise -- that is, until she is killed by an assassin gunning for Bourne. Believing that the CIA is behind the attack, Bourne relentlessly pursues his old boss Brian Cox, who's now dealing with a female administrator Joan Allen even more ruthless than he is. And it gets worse: Although Bourne doesn't know it, he's been framed for the murder of a CIA operative in Berlin -- which means his former colleagues are as eager to find him as he is them. The boyishly handsome Damon, whose casting as Bourne originally raised eyebrows, plays the preternaturally gifted spook with remarkable intensity. He's grimly convincing whether jury-rigging high-tech gadgets or dispatching experienced combatants in unusual settings. Interestingly, Damon's is a performance that's carried by pantomime: he has very little dialogue, and we understand much of what he's doing by his facial expressions and body language. Frequent cutaways to the opposition heighten the tension, especially because the Cox and Allen characters are working at cross-purposes; their dialogue exchanges are also wonderfully tart. Paul Greengrass Bloody Sunday rates kudos for vividly capturing exotic foreign locations while staging high-powered action sequences, including the best car chase we've seen in years, and maintaining an unflagging pace.
