Audience Reviews for The Bourne Identity


It was interesting watching this first movie, based on the book by Robert Ludlum, which I gather is more true to the book than the Matt Damon movie. This is a 300 minute, 2 part, made for TV movie with Richard Chamberlain and Jaclyn Smith. Good acting and well made apart from a very cheesy love scene with equally cheesy music during it. There were a few other goofy parts but all in all an interesting and pretty enjoyable film.

Robin P.

The 1988 TV film based on the book series is actually pretty good. Before the later ones, this was it.
