My Thoughts

A funny thing happened when I rewatched the trilogy on Bluray. I noticed that Identity has the most coherent and believable plot; it doesn't leave to many holes laying about. It does sacrifice some of the frantic pacing that makes the two sequels such great fun to watch, but in all honesty, from a plot perspective, it's easily the best of the three.

And the action scenes are still pretty fucking intense! The Paris car chase scene is one of the best car chases put to film and set the bar pretty damn high.

My Thoughts

Not my favorite of the trilogy, but man, what a great film! This movie pretty much redefined what a great action movie should be and still holds up really well.

The Paris car chase scene is still one of the best since The French Connection, and the embassy fight scene is swift and brutal.
