G reviews The Bourne Identity.
And I think Ebert sums it up nicely... "There comes a point at which we realize there will be no higher level to the screenplay, no greater purpose than to expend this kinetic energy. The movie's brutally cynical happy ending reveals that it doesn't take itself seriously. And we catch on (sooner than Marie) that the girl stays in the picture only because--well, there has to be a girl, to provide false suspense and give the loner hero someone to talk to. " Roger Ebert, "Chicago Sun-Times"
Only I would replace "loner" with "loser".
I dig superheroine Franka Potente though, they should have let her strut her stuff more. She is way more interesting to look at than Matt Damon.
Just realized she plays Johnny Depp's first love interest in Blow, before Penelope Cruz comes on the scene.
