    • It doesn't require a careful comparison to The Bourne IdentityBourne films jumping to the UHD format) to notice that something's off about the movie's UHD transfer. It's insanely dreary, dull, and flat....

    • The DTS:X soundtrack is at least a good listen, imperfect by any definition but nicely supportive and very active through all available channels. Though it lacks the very fine precision and nuance of the...

    • The only supplement/bonus on the Ultra HD Blu-ray is the Doug Liman Audio Commentary. The Alternate Opening and Ending which is in rough SD on Blu-ray, is certainly worth watching, though the accompanying...

    • For this reviewer, I've had a lot of years to come to grips with Identity and with Matt Damon as the iconic Jason Bourne. As much as I can attempt to give the film a fresh look as a standalone product,...

    • While it's not my favorite Bourne film, The Bourne Identity is still re-watchable and enjoyable after all these years. It is the alpha for Matt Damon's Bourne, and will continue to be a strong influence...
