Director: Doug Liman
Actors: Matt Damon, Chris Cooper and Franka Potente
Year: 2002
Genre: Action and Mystery
Conclusion: 4/5
This is a remake of a 1988 TV movie. Based on a book by Robert Ludlum. While this was in postproduction Robert Ludlum passed away and sadly did not see the finished product. Brilliant action movie. This is the first film in the UK that has a “12A” certificate. Brad Pitt was offered the role of Jason Bourne but turned it down. One film critic wrote ‘A suspenseful thriller that showcases stunning visuals, great acting and a story that will keep you entertained from start to finish’.
