It's quick to action but lighter in story than The Bourne Identity, and I really didn't like the intentional hand-held jerky camera movement. Otherwise, Damon is great in the role because he doesn't have much to say and spends most of the time looking upset, it covered a LOT of really beautiful geography, has a great soundtrack including the distinctive Moby, and it has a pretty cool car chase.
If you were satisfied with how the original ended, you should probably consider not seeing this one. It's far from great and really isn't much value added.Added 01 January 2005 at 12:43 AM
