Well i haven't read the books but the one thing about the movies that struck me as awesome is the seamless transition from the first to the last... I was really convinced that Matt Damon filmed the second movie like three days after the first because his character held all the same notes and feelings as he had in the first film. I think it is commendable to not only Matt Damon but also the director and filming crew and the other actors in the movie that deserves some of the credit. And yeah the movie rocked my face off!!

Oh, so another thing where the film is good, the book is good but they're just not really the same thing.
I wonder if that's the case, why didnt they just call it something different? Like Starship Troopers. The book and the movie were nothing like one another.

*the name treadstone
and other stuff i cant remember cuz im not feeling well.

good movies, but in no way accurate

They were very good films. I found it interesting that the Brits loved them so much, I figured they would think of them as bond ripoffs even though they arent.

"The Bourne Identity" had the best martial art fighting scenes I have seen in any movie ever.

Both were exellent movies.

The only thing I didn't like about the second one was the screen shots were too tight, it kinda gave me a headache. If it wasn't for that it would have been really great.

Great movies, second movie shakes the camera a little too much for my liking, but still great.

I heard the book is vastly different from the movies, I've never read it myself but a co-worker of mine read it and said the movies are nothing like the book.

I've seen some Jet Li movies.

The thing about the Bourne movie was the fighting was different, it had more of a realisticly brutal feel to it rather than the flash of those other martial art movies.

hmm its interesting that you bring up the word brutal

most of the people (if they were real) thier training is that they take out the opponent whilst using the least ammount of energy, most definently this was conveyed by bourne, the fights seemed to end very violently and abruptly
this is also conveyed in 'those other martial arts movies" its just that often the people they are fighting have just as much training as the good guy does!!!

THERE IS NO JASON BOURNE AND THERE ARE NO JASON BOURNE MOVIES.
now i think this topic must end before an accident happens to the participants, say perhaps if you all fell from a 50-story building, by accident of course.

and thank you for the comments on my martial arts skills
