Their CVs may look a bit similar but it's a very different kind of guy. You should watch it. You'll know what I mean.

Novel Bourne
Quote:
* Real Name: David Webb
* Aliases: Delta, Jason Bourne, Cain

The character named Jason Bourne has a long and mysterious past. First off, his real name is David Webb. He was a career foreign service officer, specifically a specialist in Far Eastern affairs. Before the events in Identity, Webb had a wife and two children in Phnom Penh, the capital of Cambodia. During the Vietnam War an aircraft strayed into Cambodia and dropped two bombs at a spot near the Mekong River unintentionally killing Webb's wife and two children. Due to Cambodia's neutrality in the war, every nation disclaimed the plane since no one wanted to be responsible for the incident. Having nothing left, Webb went to Saigon and trained for a special top-secret unit called Medusa (many years later the unit and its actions would still remain top-secret). At this point, Webb turned into Delta, his codename within the unit.

Film Bourne
Quote:
n the films, Jason Bourne, played by Matt Damon, is much more simplified. He was a contract CIA assassin working on a job when he had a sudden attack of conscience, failed his mission, and was shot multiple times in the back trying to flee. Similar to the novel, he was left for dead in the Mediterranean Sea and when he awoke was an amnesiac. David Webb, however, never was a contract assassin.

I've seen The Bourne Identity a couple of times and it rocked my socks off. And I just finished watching The Bourne Supremacy... Damn Good. I just didn't want it to end.

I just finished the book The Bourne Identity. A great book too.
Very different from the film but they're both great either way if you're not too fussed about accuracy. Just take them for what they are and you will thoroughly enjoy both.
