Accomplished action/thriller trilogy based on Robert Ludlum's bestselling novels and starring Matt Damon as Jason Bourne, an amnesiac CIA assassin on the run from his former paymasters. In 'The Bourne Identity' (2002), Bourne is pulled out of the Mediterranean by fishermen, badly wounded and suffering from amnesia. Unable to recall either who he is or what has happened to him, his only clue to his identity is the number of a Swiss bank account which has been etched into a device implanted in his body. Following the lead to Zurich, he discovers money, passports and a gun waiting for him, but also earns the attention of the security services and has to leave in a hurry. He then persuades a young woman named Marie Kreutz (Franka Potente) to drive him to Paris, where he hopes to find out his true identity and discover the reason why the CIA are taking such an interest in him. In 'The Bourne Supremacy' (2004), Bourne (Damon) has left his violent past behind him and is living a normal life with girlfriend Marie (Potente) under an assumed name. But his plans for a peaceful life are crushed when he narrowly escapes an assassination attempt. Now hunted by an unknown enemy, Bourne must prove that he is not an easy target. In 'The Bourne Ultimatum' (2007), the tension is ratcheted up even further as Bourne (Damon) races to uncover the dark mysteries of his past while a government agent is hot on his trail following a shootout in Moscow.
Finally making its Blu-ray bow, The Ultimate Bourne Collection defies the convention for how these things are supposed to work. The theory runs that a trilogy’s best film is the first, and it’s a case of diminishing returns from that point onwards. The Bourne movies? They just keep getting better and better.
Things kick off well with The Bourne Identity, which introduces Matt Damon as Jason Bourne. When we meet him, he’s no idea who he is, but he quickly learns that he’s in possession of some quite extraordinary, and lethal, skills. The film is slap bang on the money for the first two thirds, before a slightly muddled last act. Yet it still gets the franchise off to a good start.
The directorial reigns passed over from Doug Liman (of Swingers and now Mr and Mrs Smith fame) to Paul Greengrass (United 93, Bloody Sunday) for The Bourne Supremacy, and it proved to be a wise choice. Supremacy is a faster, more intense film, that this time sees Jason Bourne framed for murder, and gradually closing in on the secrets of his part. It’s pulsating stuff.
The icing on the proverbial cake though is the superb The Bourne Ultimatum, arguably one of the finest blockbuster movies of the past decade or two. Effectively a two-hour chase movie, it’s a staggering achievement that returning director Greengrass manages to keep the momentum going right the way through. Damon, by this point, utterly owns the role, and it’s a film that demands to be re-watched time and time again.
As you’d hope and expect, high definition is both kind and effective where the Bourne films are concerned, with the fast action looking quite superb in 1080p. Backed up by a vibrant, brilliant surround sound mix, all three of the films benefit from the upgrade, and ultimately leave you salivating for the much-rumoured fourth installment. A terrific trilogy. --Simon BrewSee all Product Description

The Jason Bourne films are, in my opinion, amongst the best films ever made. Certainly in terms of action thrillers, there is nothing to compare them with. Where the Matrix tried to be too clever and lost its universal appeal, and Bond has never been clever enough, Bourne's adventures can be enjoyed on all sorts of levels. If you want spectacularly put together chases and combat, which whilst outrageous at times never stray to the cartoon-style lengths that characterise, for instance, Die Hard, then they are here. If you want a character who is at once superhuman and yet totally human, you have Matt Damon in superb form as Jason Bourne. If you want an excellent supporting cast, then simply look down the list and the names are all there. If you want lovely photography, set across Europe's capital cities, then you won't be disappointed. And if you want a moral story, then there are messages in these movies which are subtle, and messages which are stark.
And the plots (of each film and the trilogy as a whole) rattle along at an impressive pace, and are complex enough to keep you going, but not so complex as to ever lose interest.
As you can tell, I am a fan!
The DVDs contain some really satisfying extras, too - interviews in those usual 'making of documentary' format, commentaries from the directors, plus some extra documentaries following the filming of some of the particularly iconic sequences, such as the chase across the rooftops of Tangiers in the Bourne Ultimatum.
This trilogy is a must have.
When I read other reviews and saw all of the good feed-back I didn't understand why people where saying that it was a great film to show off the Blu-Ray quality - it isn't exactly full of special effects and huge explosions...HOWEVER I soon understood why...these are what I found most impressive about the Blu-Ray version.
1) Filmed from extraordinarily well placed angles making it seem like you're in the room watching two people fight!
2) Sound effects from HD DTS 5.1, making a mini-cooper sound like a over-powered Lamborghini
3) Amazing detailed distant shots of cities so clear, you can see people walking on the streets
4) Fast paced scenes are no longer too fast; you can see every injury, every small object or knife used, every bullet hole...you know what's happening!
...AND MUCH MORE!
But even forgetting the new format, these films are not to be missed. Lots of action films are too exaggerated and often the hero gets out of a situation by "lucky means" or just unbelievable ones. Watching Jason Bourne really gets you to believe that it IS POSSIBLE to do most of the things he does, it's pure skill and determination. He's one step ahead of his enemies and two steps away from you guessing what he'll do next!
10/10 - BEST ACTION TRILOGY EVER
What makes Bourne so great though, is that unlike most fodder that Hollywood usually churns out, the high octane action here actually means something: He regrets his past, and he doesn't wreck havoc unless he has to. Bourne is a tortured soul, trying to find answers. The trilogy of films sees him come to terms with himself, then confront his enemies (usually with something he found lying around in their house), and the demons within himself, whilst the CIA (amongst many others) try to stop him for good.
The Series goes well beyond what is typical of the action genre to deliver a story with a brain, that has a coherent narrative, and a grounded main character. It's a darker and a grittier than anything that has come before it, and Casino Royale is a wonderful example of its already huge influence. Bourne has redefined action cinema, with his fistfights and his car chases. The presence of the man who could not remember his past will be felt long into the future on our cinema screens.

here you go hope i helped somebody.
The story builds into a rich tapastry throughout the trilogy, with many twists and turns to keep you interested.
Watch each movie separately, or all 3 as a whole, it doesn't matter - they are very cleverly made and you will quickly get into the plot regardless of which other parts of the trilogy you have seen before.
This set would be great as a stocking filler and will easily keep young and old alike entertained on christmas day.
The price is very good, considering the third instalment is £11.98 here on amazon I would much rather purchase this three-in-one set for the additional £8. What a bargin!
Jason Bourne is the thinking mans Bond. These films are much smarter and feel much more real than any Bond film.
Bourne vs Bond? I'll put £10 on Bourne...
