Robert Ludlum's The Bourne Identity, the first in his trio of international thrillers featuring master spy Jason Bourne, was a sensation when it was originally published in 1980. In 2002 this potent novel got an edgy 21st century spin from directorDoug Liman (Swingers, Go) who delivered Ludlum's high-stakes tale with grit, style and nerve.
The story opens as an amnesiac (Matt Damon) is rescued at sea by the crew of an Italian fishing boat. Nearly dead, he carries only the bullets in his back and the bank account number implanted in his hip. Although completely without identity or background, he does possess an array of extraordinary talents in fighting, linguistics and self-defense that speak of a dangerous past. He sets out on a desperate search – assisted by the initially rebellious Marie – to discover who he really is, and why so many people want him dead.
The exciting original motion picture soundtrack for The Bourne Identity was scored by Academy Award nominated composer John Powell. While his biggest hits may have come in the form of such animated blockbuster films as Happy Feet, Shrek, Chicken Run and How to Train Your Dragon, Powell is no less adept at more intense fare, as this acclaimed collection certainly attests.
