This film was a revelation of sorts when it came out. (I owned the first - TV - version too.) I'm very happy to get it on HD DVD!
Thanks for the review, Sam.
I've never seen the Miniseries, what did you think of that version Cees?
I agree completely about Ucontrol. Every time I use it I feel like some kind of monkey in a Pavlovian experiment.
I have the original Mini from 1988 on DVD also. It's interesting, somewhat closer to the book than the new films, very much a product of the 80s. Good score by Laurence Rosenthal. A surprisingly big budget feel for a TV movie. All and all not bad.
OK, you have my curiosity tweaked. What is the name of the mini-series?
The Bourne Identity.
Nice review Sam....looks like we pretty much agree on the tech aspects.
Hopefully Universal will release a trilogy box set for we suckers who love to re-buy movies.
The only way I would consider re-buying them in a box set was if they were 1) done with lossless sound, and 2) was the only way to get Ultimatum as a non-Combo Format release.
Damn it, Paul, why are you giving them ideas!
Yes, it was called The Bourne Identity.
I liked that version, Sam. Although by then I was no longer such a big fan of the main actor.
The new version is certainly better (it's basically the same story, based on a novel by Robert Ludlum), but when I watched the 1988 version again after seeing the 2002 film, I was surprised how good it actually was. Even Richard Chamberlain, I must say.
It's a long "film" and it shows its origin (TV 2-episode series) and time period, but it's certainly fun (and some beautiful European scenery)!
Paul thanks for the info. I looked up Bourne Identity on TVTome.com but couldn't find it listed prior to asking the question. Never thought to look it up on IMDB.
It's out on DVD. I think netflix has it for rent.
Thanks for the head-up but I was able to secure a copy at DVD Empire. Now all I have to do is wait for it to be delivered.
