Bourne Identity (2002)

Title: Bourne Identitya1qealxws3l-_ri_
Year: 2002
Director: Doug Liman
Genre: Action
Category: #16 The first film in a series

Again, I’ve seen parts of this series (not even sure which movie) but never the whole thing. And I remembered the part that I’d seen being quite interesting so I figured I’d check out the whole thing.

I didn’t mind this movie but I also didn’t think it was anything to rave about. Maybe it’s because it’s fifteen years old now and hasn’t aged well. Maybe it’s just not my cup of tea. Either way, I don’t think I’ll be checking out the rest of the movies in the series.

Rating: 2.5/5 stars


The Great Wall (2016)

Title: The Great Wallmv5bmja3mjazotqxnf5bml5banbnxkftztgwotc5oty1ote-_v1_ux182_cr00182268_al_
Year: 2016
Director: Zhang Yimou
Genre: Fantasy/Action
Category: #5 Film with subtitles

I loved the idea behind this film… not so much the execution. The idea that there could be this kind of alien type creature that would break down the Great Wall of China is great. Unfortunately, the whole thing was incredibly poorly executed with the creatures seeming a bit like an afterthought rather than a central part of the plot.

What was good was the costuming which was just so bright and just nice to look at. But if that’s the only thing this movie has going for it then I’m just not sure it’s worth your time.

Rating: 1/5 stars
