Matt Damon IS Jason Bourne. How true! I can't imagine another actor in that position and now, wouldn't want their to be. I sat in the darkened theatre and with hands griping the armrests felt as if I were on a roller-coaster. It is truly a thrill-ride a minute. At the end...(and I won't give away the ending although everyone knows by now <G> the audience applauded. I know there isn't a fourth novel by Ludlum but Lustbader does an incredible job with the fourth installment with "The Bourne Legacy". And yes...there is room for a sequel. And as for Matt Damon's request to be versatile...he would have to be versatile to pull off Bourne in the next book.

MATT DAMON is a real life, human being, Hollywood HERO (notice how LITTLE time he spends there)with his "act" together.
Humble, brilliant, deserving of HUGE successes.
he works tirelessly at his craft, to perfection.
He is a fantastic role model for American young people as a father, husband and actor.

"MATT DAMON, his brilliances and successes" nightly intead of the National NEWS "enabling" a total looser/ditz like Paris Hilton, America's # 1 liar and spoiled brat!!!!!!!

Matt Damon deserves much MORE!

There are two additional Bourne booksfrom the Robert Ludlum estate - "The Bourne Legacy" and "The Bourne Betrayal". Since the movies - I've seen the first two and thought them to be wonderful action movies - have so grossly departed from the books, making a movie of "The Bourne Legacy" would be out of the question.

The first two movies were really great action movies and I intend to see the third. Too bad they had to really hack up the plot and key components of Bourne.

Damon IS perfect...I can't picture any other actor doing this series. Unfortunately, the last film dropped some of the intospective qualities in favor of unrelenting action tight action sequences. That was too bad. The character is fading.

Why? Because your IQ is already so low?

Shauntee made the impossibility possible... you began with a lower IQ and got even lower. Congrats. I am sure you were unable to read any books relating to this movie. Too bad. Go and seek the light, perhaps it may help you (or not!)

I thought it was an entertaining movie. I've seen all thre and I have enjoyed Damon's body of work.

In terms of acting he is right up there with any of the other young studs in talent, save perhaps Johnny Depp.

Shauantee, why you gotta be hat-en?

Matt Damon, what can you say? My perspective is that an aactor who has youth on his side as well as vision has already empbraced the silver screen with a true maturity. Natural, and poised in his roles he will go on to join the greats, one of whom he's already worked with in "The Departed", Jack Nicholson.

"Talk to Me" now showing in selected theatres.

During the 1960's there was a powerhouse urban radio station WOL-AM in Washington, DC. Along came a young ex-con from the Anacostia projects who was instrumental in changing the racial improprieties throughout America and the world. His name was Waldo "Petey" Green.
The movis has been released and the lead actor is Don Cheadle, great for his roles in "Hotel Rwanda" and "Rebound:The Legend of Earl Manigault"
Aside from the obvious, this African-American actor has also brought a natural presence to the silver screen and because of this movie that was gently promoted (why do you think?) definitely deserves a soldier from the Academy.
See it, and if you are familiar with historical events of the 20th century which affect us even now, movies such as the Bourne series for those of high IQ's might just take a back seat and open some eyes.
