I've watched Bourne Identity and Bourne Supremacy, but I think these movies made some injustice to the author. I really enjoyed the book Bourne Identity by Ludlum, but not the movie simply because the plot is different. The first version is better. It would be great to watch "Rhineman's Exchange" as a movie, even when if it aleready was a television series more than twenty years ago. Whatdo you think?

Wow! I didn't even know there was a book because so many movies today aren't based on a book. However, you are right every book that I have ever read and then seen the movie, the movie is never as good as the book. It's because the book can be very descriptive such as describing what the person is thinking (mentally) and describing something in words can translate into different interpretations from people. Now I will have to read the book of this wonderful movie! Pablo

When you read great (and I mean GREAT) books, I personally believe that movies are never up to the challenge. I've seen Bourne Identity and I liked it, but I haven't read the book yet. But I mean, from Harry Potter to The Name of The Rose, through The Lord of the Rings and any others you can possibly think of, movies are never as good as the books, I don't know why is that! It's so annoying and dissapointing to go watch a movie when you already loved the book!! =)
