CONTENT OVERVIEW & SYNOPSES:

"THE BOURNE IDENTITY"


FILM SYNOPSIS:

After being pulled from the sea with two bullets in his back, Jason Bourne
(Matt Damon) awakens on a fishing boat with no memory of his involvement in a
top-secret, black ops arm of the CIA called Treadstone. The only clue to his
identity is the number of a Swiss bank account in which he discovers an array
of passports and weapons, as well as a fortune in cash. As he struggles to
regain his memory, his former employers dub him a rogue agent and target him
for termination. When an equally deadly assassin codenamed "Professor" (Clive
Owen) is sent to dispose of him, Bourne rediscovers his extraordinary survival
skills, including hand-to-hand combat, martial arts and multiple languages,
and begins to understand who he really is. As he struggles to unlock the
secret of his own identity, Bourne has to deal with his past in order to
ensure his own future.

If you're into extra features or you want to get the better AQ then yeah, definitely get the new blu. However, I doubt the movies will be any different as far as PQ goes. And the actual story stays the same too.

Yeah, except for some strange reason they overdubbed a couple of things. Now, every time the name Jason Bourne is said it is overdubbed "Jason Blu" and every time the CIA is mentioned it's overdubbed with "Toshiba". Otherwise, the plot is consistent.
