Great spy action
After putting off watching this film for a lot of time, mainly due to the fact that the other film based on the famous Robert Ludlum book being so unforgivably bland and dull, I finally decided to see this film, mainly because I had heard so many great things about it, and because I am going to see the sequel, Bourne Supremacy, at the cinema immediately afterward, and I wanted to know the story first. The film is surprisingly good. The plot is good, and well-paced. You're rarely bored. The acting is good, particularly Matt Damon, who gives a very powerful performance. The characters are well-written and credible. The dialog is well-written and well-delivered. The action is well-done, well-choreographed and fairly stylish without being overdone. It's cool, it's unpredictable and it's fresh(at least a few of the scenes). I don't know if the film is as good as the book, but I enjoyed it thoroughly. The film keeps your interest throughout, it's never really boring, and the way the plot evolves keeps you interested and intrigued. You want to know how it ends, since it keeps surprising you, you want to see if the ending is a surprise as well. During most of the film, at least, it manages to surprise you and avoid clichés. However, there are a few scenes that fall into the many pits of Hollywood action clichés; one is an early scene that has Bourne fighting mano-a-mano against a henchman, which we've seen far too many times. The character development does leave a little to be desired(though it can be argued that a man with no memory wouldn't have much of a personality, either), but the action more than makes up for it. The scenes involving Bourne fighting hand-to-hand are very good, and the shootouts, while not plentiful, are great. The film is genuinely exciting throughout, which is more than what can be said about many recent action films. I recommend it to fans of the various actors involved in it, as well as fans of spies and story-driven action-thrillers. 8/10
