Audience Reviews for The Bourne Identity
Robert Ludlum's bestselling novel The Bourne Identity is adapted as a mildly suspenseful and atmospheric TV movie. The story follows an injured man who washes ashore with no memory of who he is, but he slowly starts to suspect that he's a hired assassin after following several clues and being pursued by a hit squad. Richard Chamberlain and Jaclyn Smith lead the cast and give cheesy, melodramatic performances. And Roger Young's meandering, slow-paced directing doesn't do the film any favors. The writing too is rather poor, particularly at making Bourne's missing past a compelling mystery (which is a major failing). Incredibly long and arduous, The Bourne Identity is a bland spy thriller that feels rote and cliché.
