The Bourne Trilogy

Unread postby skatingtripods » Fri Dec 07, 2007 12:29 pm

My girlfriend and I just started a Netflix free trial and we were looking for some things to get. At that point, I stumbled upon The Bourne Identity. So we got it and I have to be honest, I fucking loved it. It was an awesome story line, and it helps that I've liked Matt Damon a lot since his role in Rounders.

I've got The Bourne Supremacy on the way here and I've heard from several people that The Bourne Ultimatum is the best one of them all. I'm trying to watch them in order.

Anyone else watch these and how did you feel about them?

Bourne Ultimatum might be the best of the three.

Paul Greengrass is a genius director, and they script is fantastic in taking Bourne the last steps in discovering who he was.

Yes. I loved that movie too. That's in my top five all time.

The Bourne movies are fantastic. I only started watching them right before Ultimatum came out and loved all three. Old school action/thrillers that keep your attention throughout.

Really solid trilogy. The 1st one is still my favorite the part where he sticks the pen in the guys hand is great.

Greengrass did a great job with United 93, which in my opinion didn't get nearly enough attention because it was a movie that people didn't necessarily want to see. It was difficult to watch at times, but it's a film that everyone should see.

The movie was a worthy companion to World Trade Center and in some ways superior to WTC.
