My favorite 20 films of the 2000s: The Bourne Identity

These are my 20 personal favorite films of the 2000s and they are not being ranked according to any criteria, other than I love them. So here they are, in alphabetical order:

The Bourne Identity (2002) – I like the entire series but the first is my favorite

Finding himself with no memory of who he is or where he came from, Jason Bourne is thrown into a world filled with non-stop action on an international level. The film focuses more on thought-provoking action than dialogue and the balance is perfect as we come to learn of Treadstone and the secret US spy programs that members like Bourne were trained to undertake. Adapted from the exciting novel by Robert Ludlum this thriller never gets old as we partake in a mystery that unravels before our eyes in stunning locations and fast-paced, non-stop action. Matt Damon seems to have been born to play the title role and he does not disappoint in any aspect as he pieces together the puzzle of his seemingly improbable alias.
