Are Bourne And Bond Switching Identities?

That’s the theory of this writer, who says, ‘Bond is becoming a lot like Bourne: The fast-pace and close-combat fight sequences in “Quantum of Solace,” for example, seemed eerily familiar to anyone who’d seen “The Bourne Ultimatum.”‘ Further: ‘Jason Bourne [seems] a far better fit for the modern, post-9/11 world. Unlike 007, he was pursued not by an enemy state or an international criminal, but by his own former CIA employers. Bond always, ultimately, acts on behalf of Her Majesty; Bourne is stateless.’
