The Bourne Identity

Title: The Bourne Identity
Year: 2002
Director: Doug Liman
Writer: Tony Gilroy & W. Blake Herron, based on the novel by Robert Ludlum
Starring: Matt Damon, Franka Potente, Chris Cooper, Clive Owen, Brian Cox
Music: John Powell
Synopsis: a CIA assassin wakes up with no memory of who he is and tries not to get killed by his superiors
How I saw it: on video, yesterday (rented from Netflix)
Subjective Rating: 7/10 (Good).
Objective Rating: 6/10 (points off for story, characters, cinematography and music) c. 2.5/4 (Okay).

Entertaining. The action is good. The story starts out promising, but eventually fizzles out into formulaic nonsense. It’s worth watching, but I expected a lot more.
