11The Bourne Identity
Matt Damon’s role as a CIA Assassin suffering from amnesia singlehandedly re-defined modern spy thrillers, showing Jason Bourne to possess superhuman levels of stealth and battlefield awareness. When he first arrives on land after being rescued from the sea by a fishing crew, he quite literally disappears into the surrounding
city, illustrating how effective his innate ability to remain undetected truly is. Until viewers take a closer look at his disappearance, and notice the pair of extras attempting – and failing – to conceal actor Matt Damon ducking behind the truck driving across the set, with his feet and bright red jacket clearly visible. Maybe another take would have been wise.
