It’s a formula that has often made money for Hollywood and this one will probably follow suit, because it is very well done and the depth of character that Damon brings to his role adds to the film’s impact and entertainment value.
Of course an action film wouldn’t be complete without a high-speed, high-tech car chase through the streets of some famous and picturesque city. However, the chase scene is a little different in this film, because it is very low tech, and not very high speed, with small-engine fuel-efficient European cars driving through narrow Paris streets. But the effect and dramatic tension, while not quite as high as the chase scene in Bullet or The French Connection, is still quite suspenseful with just the right touch of comedy provided by Bourne and Marie.
Damon also takes on some very innovative karate moves for this part, which will no doubt add to his new action hero persona.
