I agree. Why are they still selling full screen versions of The Bourne Identity? It's 2008, for chrissakes!

Edit: Damn, beat by a minute!

I agree. What kind of collector purchases the full-screen version of a movie?

(missed it by a hair!)

I think you folks are missing the OP's point. It's obvious that The Hades Factor's cover art was ripped off by the folks who did The Bourne Identity. You would think the people at Universal would be more creative.

I think you missed the OP's real point, Bourne in Full Screen? When will it end?!!

While we're at it, I'm completely sick of heist movies. Sick of them. I just don't care about a bunch of assholes (even if they DO wisecrack) who are planning to rob somebody.

Those stupid Ocean's movies tried to make it like they're robbing a "bad" guy, but fuck it, a boring movie about a bunch of guys hovering over blueprints is still boring. Even if they DO wisecrack.

I think you're missing the point behind the responses

I, for one, thought that Covert One: The Hades Factor was brilliant and even more action packed than The Bourne Films COMBINED!

Oh wait, never mind. I never even heard of it before! Silly me.

That cover art was copied for sure. That's awful. Especially considering I didn't even like The Bourne Identity cover art to begin with!

Hey, they are both based on Robert Ludlum works, so it's okay!

I always thought Stephen Dorff was a bit of a Streisand, but he's rockin the shit in this one.

Well, they'll have to use a similar cover if they ever make a movie about Public Enemy.

Maybe we need to resurrect the Tom Cruise "profile on the cover" thread.

100 Mile Rule:




Also, someone had a the same great idea and threw together several youtube videos:

Some of these covers are obviously that way on purpose, especially when it's a lower budget movie or a direct to DVD movie trying to capitalize on the more successful box office counterpart.
