As cenas de ação são ótimas e há boa química entre Damon e Potente. O roteiro também é instigante, embora não totalmente satisfatório.
| Original Score: 4/5

The Bourne Identity is about as effective a thriller as you could want, especially if you don't want to think too hard.

'A new action hero is Bourne.' As incredibly cheesy and precious that advertising tag line for The Bourne Identity is, there's no discounting the truth it does hold.

While it never reaches transcendence of its genre, it happens to be pleasurably overstuffed with smart and welcome touches.

It resembles one of those travelogue thrillers of the 1960s, that were blown away by the success of James Bond.

Matt Damon's an amnesiac secret agent on the run in this immensely satisfying and engagingly direct thriller.

Buen thriller de espías con una gran cantidad de acción, pero desgraciadamente con otra buena de dósis de huecos en el guión.

In short, The Bourne Identity is an excellent thriller and is well-worth checking out.

The movie may not be realistic, but it earns its stripes as high-class escapist fare.

The Bourne Identity is a blockbuster without a point... Despite its good-looking veneer, its breakneck pace, its daisy-chain of expert set-pieces, some crucial logic or motive appears to have been junked along the way.

In adapting Ludlum's complex novel, Liman & Co. solved a number of narrative problems.

...a passable effort that receives plenty of mileage out of Damon's expectedly engaging performance...

The Bourne Identity delivers everything you ask for in a thriller - nail-biting suspense, awe-inspiring stunts and a resolution as satisfying as the film itself.
