The Bourne Identity

 (2002)

The Bourne Identity Blu-ray offers solid video and superb audio in this excellent Blu-ray release

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.

For more about The Bourne Identity and the The Bourne Identity Blu-ray release, see the The Bourne Identity Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 4.0 out of 5.

Starring: Matt Damon, Franka Potente, Chris Cooper, Clive Owen, Brian Cox, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje

The Bourne Identity Blu-ray, Video Quality

  3.5 of 5

The Bourne Identity barrels onto Blu-ray with a solid 1080p/VC-1 transfer that, several issues notwithstanding, represents a notable upgrade from its standard DVD counterpart. Although the film's palette is largely subdued, there is strength and stability beneath every restrained primary and well-resolved black. Explosions, as uncommon as they are in the Bourne universe, boast brilliant oranges, nighttime Parisian sequences are sumptuous and rich, and reds are remarkable whenever they're framed by the actors' relatively lifelike skintones. Object definition is sharp and satisfying as well (even though scenes draped in shadow are a bit soft) and textures are fairly refined (particularly during closeups). Take note of the tactile underbrush flanking Clive Owen in his sniper perch, the fine hair on Damon and Potente's necks, the minuscule lettering on the passports in Bourne's security deposit box. Significant macroblocking, unintentional noise, aliasing, and crush are nowhere to be found, and ringing and artifacting, though present to some degree, are kept a minimum. Granted, several shots haven't aged so gracefully -- brace yourself anytime Brian Cox walks on screen; his flatly filmed scenes are some of the transfer's most underwhelming -- but they're few and far between.

My biggest complaint is that overall contrast is somewhat lacking. Snow has a smoky tint, brightly lit apartments are quite dreary, cityscapes occasionally waver, and depth and dimensionality take countless hits. That's not to say the film ever looks bad per se, just that some slight tweaking would have allowed the picture to properly pop. Regardless, the Blu-ray edition of The Bourne Identity should please fans and attract newcomers to the franchise. While its transfer isn't as striking as those that accompany its sequels, it nevertheless delivers a competent high definition presentation.


The Bourne Identity Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.5 of 5

Universal's video transfer may have inspired a shrug or two, but the studio's rousing DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 surround track had me grinning from beginning to end. Dialogue is clean and intelligible, prioritization is spot on, and gunshots pack some heat of their own. Weighty LFE output lends oomph to every kick-kack, thoom, and roaring engine, and aggressive rear speaker activity encircles the listener with hurried crowds and brisk snow storms. John Powell's score has a palpable pulse as well, driving the film's befuddled amnesiac forward with ever-quickening bass beats and kinetic strings. Directional effects are equally effective, assaulting the listener from all angles and enveloping them in every step of Bourne's confusion plight. Moreover, pans are spy-vs-spy smooth, the soundfield becomes increasingly immersive, and dynamics rarely relent. A handful of conversations, chiefly those that take place between Damon and Potente while driving cross-country, could use some more support, but such mishaps should be attributed to the original mix, not Universal's efforts. Likewise, Liman's sound design isn't as intense as that which Greengrass employs in The Bourne Supremacy and The Bourne Ultimatum, but that certainly isn't the result of any technical deficiency. Suffice to say, The Bourne Identity sounds fantastic.
