    I recently downloaded the Bourne Identity from limewire and watched it. I liked the fighting scenes. I downloaded Bourne Supremacy and liked it too but not as much. What about you guys? Anyone read the books?

    I loved Identity, but I though that the camera work on Supremacy was terrible. I think they had decided to go for a wobbly camera to make it look 'artistic' or realistic but in the end all it did was mean you couldn't follow the action sequences as well.

    Still, cudos for beating a guy up with a rolled up magazine - not as good as the biro, but still good.

    In Identity I liked the pen thing. It was pretty awesome when the guy jumped out the window. ANd car chases are always good.

    Every action scene in Bourne's Indentity was a masterpiece. It's a shame more films don't have action as realistic as this. Honestly, I'm sick & tired of all the overdone CGI effects and matrix shots they're using these days.

    I loved both movies...but I like Supremacy more..."You should get some rest...You look tired." so cool.

    I loved Identity way more because it made much more sense than those idiotic flashbacks.

    Both movies were very well done. Identity more so than Supremacy. It was a good change to see some really nice choreography instead of CG stuff.

    Although, I read the books--and boy, the movies and the books are worlds apart. Both are good, the movies were better, but the plots are completely different.

    In the book--oh man, I just tried to explain, and found I couldn't. Just way~ too different. Fundamentally different. The very basis of the books and the movies are different. Like I said, worlds apart.

    The reason why the fight scenes looked real was because the actors went through and actually learned the stuff and then they choreographed it from there. And there is no way you can compare the books to the movie. There was more detail in the books than the movies could possibly hold. But all in all, the movies were very good considering how limited they were in what they could include.

    I am currently reading the third book - ultimatum. I enjoyed the first two books, especially about Carlos the jackal. I was dissapointed that they did not include the jackal in the movies. But then again, the movies can\'t hold too much detail so.... take what you can get and give nothing back.

    I was wondering, are there any movies similiar to Bourne? Maybe the matador but that is really a comedy type thing. Anyone know any good assassin movies i can download off limewire?
