Bourne Identity - just too much violence

Well, hello everyone.
This evening I've been looking at the film "Bourne Identity" (since I and grandpa, on my mother side, did consider to go to the theater to see "Bourne Ultimatum" but realised that one has to see the first two films before seeing the third in the series) which is considered a "James Bond-clone" by some reviwers, and I can't do anything but to agree with them.

Well, but for some things there are huge differences in how the film is made.
It lacks the kind of perfectionism that the James Bond-films has been able to maintain, that is to not cross the line where it's "too much" violence.
Unfortunately the americans doesn't seem to know where this line is, so instead of crossing the line, they've blasted the line into small bits.

Another thing the film lacks is heart.
In James Bond-films there is always room for some forgiveness and the organisation doesn't seem so cold, but rather friendly and caring about the British citizens.
The impression one receives from viewing "Bourne Identity" is that the USA isn't actually caring about the safety of its citizens, and the safety of human beings whatsoever.

Here you can find a review.
