HE WAS THE PERFECT WEAPON
UNTIL HE BECAME THE TARGET
ONE of the most popular and durable of film genres, the espionage thriller gets a fresh and altogether contemporary approach in The Bourne Identity.
Thanks to our chums at the Odeon Multiplex, Brombrough, Wirral, we have five pairs of tickets to give away to see the film for five lucky winners.
Director Doug Liman, infuses Robert Ludlum's 1980 cloak-and-dagger yarn with an unconventional sensibility, and presents Academy Award winner Matt Damon (Good Will Hunting, The Talented Mr. Ripley, Ocean's Eleven) as a new breed of spy movie hero.
The story opens as an amnesiac (Damon) is rescued at sea by the crew of an Italian fishing boat. Nearly dead, he carries nothing but bullets in his back and the Swiss bank account number embedded in his hip.
Although completely without identity or background, he possesses a remarkable aptitude for fighting, linguistics and self-defence - skills that hint of a dangerous past.
In the present, he is disoriented and wary as he is propelled into an desperate search to discover who he is and why his life is in danger.
A safety deposit box yields a variety of passports, a large amount of cash, an automatic weapon an address in Paris and a name - Jason Bourne.
What it means remains a mystery, but Bourne quickly realises that although he is in the dark, there are people who know him - and are determined to kill him.
When he meets Marie Kreutz (Franka Potente), a hard-up German-born drifter, he makes a desperate offer - $10,000 for a ride to Paris. Despite her reservations, Marie takes the cash and begins a journey with Bourne that changes their lives forever...
