I love the Bourne movies so damn much – well, the original trilogy at least – and so I’m hyped to the max for the Jason Bourne movie this summer (much more than anything else coming out this year, other than Rogue One). After seeing the trailer last week for the new film, it got me in the mood to re-watch all of them (yes, even the Renner one), and so I started on Sunday with The Bourne Identity. It’s still just as good as I remembered it being, although it’s kind of a shock to see Damon looking so young – he’s like a baby.
I remember that when this movie came out a lot of people were criticizing it for a few things, including the presence of Matt Damon, and the ending. I finally got around to watching it, and I have to say I really, really enjoyed it, including those two aspects (Damon plays a frustrating character, but that’s the point, humans are very often like that). My initial worry was that the opening part (on Earth) was going to take too long, but I found the setup to be interesting, so it didn’t bother me. Once in space though, I was glued to the screen, and loved so many of the theories and experiences going on. I know it’s silly to say this, but they’ve created such an interesting setting for this, that I would love to see a continuation of where humanity evolves, how space is further explored, etc.
