Charles Martin Smith
An unconscious man is washed ashore on the beach of a small French village during a heavy storm. A retired doctor takes care of the unconscious stranger. When the mysterious man recovers, he can't remember a thing. He does not know his name, he does not know where his flashback memories come from, and he does not know why the access code for an anonymous Swiss bank account is implanted in his thigh. As he seeks his own identity, things quickly become dangerous. There are attempts to kill him, he is well known in first class hotels across Europe, and worst of all, there are strange similarities between his memories and reported actions of the notorious terrorist, Carlos the Jackal.Written by

Abbott (Donald Moffat) says that Interpol had been trying to catch Carlos for twenty years. In fact, the real Carlos was born in 1949, and did not become a terrorist until 1970, at age twenty-one, when he joined the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine (P.F.L.P.). Therefore, if Interpol had been trying to catch him for twenty years in 1987 (when the movie was in production), they would have been trying to catch him before he was known to the world. In actuality, he was not known until his first successful bombing, in France, 1975, just twelve years prior to production. See more »
When Bourne shoots buckshot at a gas tank from fifty meters/yards, buckshot from that distance would not make a gas tank combust (it probably won't even make a dent), and lead pellets do not spark when they hit cast iron. See more »
Whatever you're getting paid, I'll double it. You were at the bank, you know I can do it.
I wouldn't touch your money.
Money's money. Why not?

I agree that the movie is a bit old, and I haven't read the book so I can't say if it's better. But I like it more than a newer, Matt Damon, version because it has a more interesting plot, and an intriguing ending.
The acting is good and the characters are well developed. The only thing I liked better in the new Bourne Identity is that the martial arts are phenomenal and the action scenes very intense, but everything else is better in the older one.
All in all it is a very good thriller with some corny scenes here and there, but it'll provide you with much suspense and an interesting ending that you would never expect.
