Not in any specific order

Spies Like Us (1985)

Chevy Chase and Dan Akroyd playing expendable spies. What more do you need?

The Bourne Identity (2002)
The Bourne Supremacy (2004)
The Bourne Ultimatum (2007)

The born trilogy took a gritty turn and placed us in the path of a rogue agent.

Casino Royal (2006)

Is the new 007 a good guy or a bad guy?

True Lies (1994)

What is not to like about this one. Added bonus= Jamie Lie Curtis. Bill Paxton plays a dirt bag.

Munich (2005)

It's great to see the progression of a Mossad agent sent to do some dirty work and where it leads him and his team psychologically.

Basic (2003)

What is going on?

Swordfish (2001)

Cyber smoke and mirrors on a large scale. The recruiting scene is wild stuff.

The Hunted (1993)

Who is accountable? The specialist, the assassin, the politicians, the war horses, the world?

Spy Game (2002, Robert Redford, Brad Pitt), Syriana (2006, George Cloony, Matt Damon), and Munich (already mentioned) are some of my favorites. The Constant Gardener (unsure of year) was also pretty good.

I never read Ludlam's novels, but I only liked the first Bourne. The second two just seemed to relly less on mystery, intriuge and character development and simply quickly continued the plot. All three were good, but the first one was great, and the others simply sub-par in comparison, I think.

Casino Royal reminded me of why I grew up liking James Bond. Two thumbs up.

I know I'm a few weeks late, but welcome to ATS, Eye Open.

Thank you. I never did a Hello thread. So it's all good. I agree on the 2nd and 3rd installations of the Bourne series. They are still some of my favorites.
