Not to be one of those "the book was better..." guys, but I just couldn't get into the Bourne Identity because they strayed way too far from the book. Still haven't seen Bourne Supremacy, but I'm sure I'll check it out eventually. Are they making a Bourne Ultimatum movie too?
I have a lot of friends that say the same thing Wolf and almost all of them have said that Supremacy is worse than Identity. Chances are there will be an Ultimatum as well.
Even the best movie adaptations of books typically shred the book. The worst example I can think of is any movie made of The Count of Monte Cristo. They've all sucked big stinky piles of elephant shit.
If you love a book, you're naturally going to resent any changes made to something that you already think is pretty awesome in movie form. Some stuff that works in book form just doesn't work in movies and you're going to have directors and even the original authors revising it. Like what douchebag Lucas did to the original Star Wars movies. If you give a creative talent the opportunity to revise stuff they already created, they will do so because if it's that good, it's because they're perfectionists and over time and repeated viewings/readings, they're going to come across stuff they wish they had done differently.
That said, Identity and Supremacy were both very good movies for anyone who didn't read the books, like me. If there is a third movie, I look forward to seeing it.
