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
Just read the book again and watched the movie for comparison. (had read/watched them a few times over the years.) No comparison, actually. Read morePublished 4 days ago by drmoze
I have watched this several times and I believe that this is the best of him doing the Bourne thing.Published 6 days ago by Elizabeth Talton-Smith
This book was utterly awful...and at nearly 10,000 pages (well, kindle pages) a ridiculously long winded read. I am amazed that such a good movie was pulled out of this book.. Read morePublished 9 days ago by BrianR
I was a little disturbed that the movie left out 2/3 of the novel (including the main purpose of Bourne's existence and his true identity as intended by the author), however, it... Read morePublished 9 days ago by coachbleu

|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.
