"The Bourne Trilogy is underrated"
Mon Jan-26-09 11:55 AM by JAESCOTT777

  

          

one of the few times where all of the films got better each time

Ultimatum was incredible(late pass i just saw it yesterday)
the fight scene with the morrocan assasin was nuts

but thats all

Shits better than a LOT of trilogies

what say you?

Even though all of the Bourne movies have gotten good reviews and box office, it doesn't have the larger than life following that you get with Star Wars, LOTR or hell, even Godfather. Not saying it should have those followings, though.

You just named the highest grossing trilogy ever, the biggest
book-based trilogy ever, and the perhaps the best dramatic
trilogy ever.

No films, ever, should be compared to those 3 trilogies,
and for good reason.

And not to mention the fact that the last of the Bourne
movies just came out.


In the end, Bourne an action/spy trilogy, and a damn good
trilogy.

But let's not be stupid fam.

Its not underrated at all. If anything, its overrated.

I liked the Bourne trilogy a lot, then went back
and watched some old James Bond movies, and didn't
enjoy them substantially less than I did the Bourne
movies.

They're still great, but not timeless classics, at all.

If someone thinks that Bourne is underrated because it's not considered one of the three best trilogies ever, they are overrating the Bourne series.

The last one IMO was a bit of a letdown. I would give it a B maybe a B-. The first two were top notch action thrillers, A+

Didn't think this deserved its own post but...

"They could never make a James Bond movie like any of the Bourne films,'' Damon says scornfully. "Because Bond is an imperialist, misogynist sociopath who goes around bedding women and swilling martinis and killing people. He's repulsive."

US box office numbers for the Bourne Movies:

Identity: 121 mil
Supremacy: 176 mil
Ultimatum: 227 mil

Rotten Tomato scores for the Bourne Movies:

Identity: 83%
Supremacy: 81%
Ultimatum: 94%

God, I wish these snobby movie critics and the movie going public would stop over looking the Bourne movies!

(snark aside, I do agree with you that the Bourne movies are good and got better as they went on and I will be there opening night whenever #4 comes out)

Name a memorable character in the Bourne movies? Anyone solidly remember any of the plots? The action, stunts, pacing(imho) are all perfectly done. The scripts tho...they were all just average.

Pretty much. It was the same thing happening over & over again in every movie. Good chase flick & Damon showed he's got the chops to be a good action actor but other than that it's nothing memorable.

The only difference I can tell is that "this one has him floating in the water, this one he meets the girl, this one the girl DIES...this one.."

Every movie (and I like them...I just can't see the "MOVE OVER BOND!"-references) is him starting at point A...he finds out a nugget of info, and goes to point-B, kicking ass along the way.

He makes it to "evil, old white guy # 43" at the end, and finds out some OTHER little nugget to set up the next installment.

...you have to wait to finish before you get back to bourne kicking someone's ass w/a common household object. occasionally, bourne drives, too.

before they put out the trilogy on blue ray, dvd, psp, ipod - i'd rather them place all the fight scenes from the 3 on 1 disk.
i'd buy that.
