Academy Award winner Matt Damon stars in this explosive, action-packed hit filled with incredible fight sequences. Found with two bullets in his back, Jason Bourne discovers he has the skills of a very dangerous man and no memory of his violent past. Racing to unlock the secret of his own identity, he discovers the deadly truth: he's an elite government agent, a 30 million dollar weapon the government no longer trusts. Now this top operative is the government's number one target in this super-charged, thrill-a-minute spectacular loaded with "non-stop action!" (Bill Zwecker, FOX-TV)
Created to take advantage of the sequel playing in theaters, the "Explosive Extended" edition of The Bourne Identity is neither. Unlike many special editions, this is still a single disc, and several of the original DVD features--like the DTS and commentary tracks--are jettisoned for more extras, most of which are lightweight 3- to 6-minute featurettes. The new beginning and ending is incorrectly advertised as an extended edition--the feature is the same as the theatrical, and the new footage is seen &aagrave; la carte, with explanations. These "bookend scenes" were shot after 9/11, an insurance policy for the filmmakers who were unsure how a spy film would play. Fortunately, the scenes were dropped and the results here are more a curio than anything else. The new featurettes are ordinary filler, pumped up with film clips and hooks for the sequel. A nice exception is a sound-mix segment and an all-too-quick recollection of author Robert Ludlum. Funny that "explosive" would be a word chosen to represent a film that was quite proud of going out of its way not to be just a dumb, explosion-filled action film. --Doug Thomas

I bought four of the Bourne flicks. Three had Matt Damon. One had Jeremy Renner.
All four were action filled, with nice stories and I was on the edge of my seat and... Read more

|So, this is a crappy flipper disc? Blu-Ray on one side and standard DVD...||
Yep same here. I'll pick up the Trilogy next time there's a sale.
Amazon should label these as flipper discs or "Blu-ray + DVD on 1 Disc"

|What does "Ws Dub Sub Ac3" mean? & why are they updated blu-ray movies,...||
You're generalizing. These Bourne re-issues are double sided with a BD on one side and a DVD on the other. Same as the excellent versions in the Bourne Trilogy. Get that set unless you want flipper discs.
