Talk about waking up on the wrong side of the bed. This popcorn action-thriller starts with Matt Damon floating in the middle of the Mediterranean Sea and not remembering squat. What he quickly learns, though, is that he has skills that would give James Bond and MacGyver a run for their money, and a bunch of mysterious creeps are after him. Soon he's Bourne to run, hitching a ride with Run Lola Run's Franka Potente and zipping around France trying to get to the bottom of his identity crisis (and, of course, kick some ass along the way).
Director Doug Liman (Swingers, Go) tackles the international espionage thing--cool car chases and all--with a dash of original flair, and the Potente-Damon chemistry is trés bien. Even without web shooters or a light saber, Damon comes out as one of the good guys of summer.
