(1) The first film is very understated in its action sequences. Only 1 explosion, completely justified, and a chase scene that rivals any in film history. To get an idea of the accuracy just watch the sequence when the police officer on the motorbike flips over the car and smacks his helmet. Every sound is authentic and really adds to the overall product. I will say that the greatest disappointment in the films is the female lead played by German actress Franka Potente. Being of German decent and speaking German quite well I can say that she over acted many scenes and was never really a well-developed character. She just whines throughout the whole movie being surprised by the same issues over and over again and saying scheiße every two seconds.
(2) The second film is where it gets a little fuzzy on cinematography, but the story is so sound that you don't mind the seizure inducing camera movements. Again the action is understated and all reactions seem appropriate. The opening scene of Bourne and Marie crossing the bridge being chased by a sniper is still my favorite seen (see above for reference). The new director I think takes the 'sense of action' idea a bit too far, but again the Blu-Ray captures everything in the scenes and the sounds perfectly.
(3) The third and final Matt Damon Bourne movie is a nice combination of the first two films. The scenes are well thought out and the plot is quite deep and comes to a solid conclusion as to why and how he became the way he is. You will get a little bit of the blur 'sense of action' junk from the second film but it is much reduced and returns to the actual story.
Overall I would HIGHLY recommend this set to anyone who is a fan of spy movies. While Bourne and James Bond are really nothing alike, because of the series success they are constantly compared. If you like big explosions, gadgets, and amazing vehicles and women keep watching the Bond films I certainly do (Skyfall is Amazing!). If you like deeper characters, realism, and amazing hand to hand combat then Bourne is for you. I like them both, but they should be held as exclusive from one another. I think the Blu-Ray, like most films, is really only needed for cinephiles or audiophiles. So if you are a general movie watcher the normal DVD set should be fine.
i had seen these all, on tv, already ... back when the tv i had was an old crt, ...
recently upgraded to a large-screen samsung smart-tv,... WOW!, ... blu-ray is incredible,... even if these were not absolutely incredible films, loved matt damon in so many of the films he has done,
first saw him in 'dogma', .. he shown through like a beacon, .. in 'saving private ryan' he was great, ..
but, only when i saw him in 'the talented mr. ripley' did i realize, this man can act!, wow ...
in the bourne series, ..this very talented and versatile man ...... wow!, superlatives fail, ... i already had richard chamberlain's tv mini-series, 'the bourne identity'... with the release of 'the bourne legacy', .. it just made sense to watch these five films, .. back to back to back ... great, .. all of them, great, .. and watching these three, .. just makes me want to go back and watch more of matt damon, ... where to start??
Over all I was really dissapointed that the Bourne Identity stopped at the same place in both box sets, and had to return them both, but I'm giving the set three stars because of the way Amazon handled the issue by issuing a full refund with paid UPS pick up.
I enjoyed these movies tremendously, so I'll just address why it's missing a star.
First, in principle, the box set itself is essentially just a re-release of the existing single DVDs. The only thing you get is the nice case, plus a bonus DVD (the one in the big passport). This didn't bother me, since I never had the individual films. But for someone who already does, it's a big ask to pay for a shiny box and three featurettes.
Second, and with regard to Bourne Identity, the disc itself doesn't exactly match what's on the back of the DVD case. Specifically, the Director's commentary is missing.
FYI: less than a year after this box set came out, Universal re-released (again!) the same three movies, this time without the fancy box or bonus disc, as the "Bourne Trilogy."
The special features are fantastically done on all the movies. The ability to see notes about the characters and gadgets in the film (either while it's playing or separately) are great and really give you the option to get more insight into the character motivations and the technical aspects of the film.
I highly recommend this on blu ray, it's well worth the money, especially if you're a Bourne fan. Just be aware that Supremacy looks a bit green (like Fellowship of the Ring on blu ray)
