Matt Damon, Badass

”The Bourne Ultimatum,” ”The Departed,” and other butt-kicking turns by the ”Green Zone” star

Posted on

1. The Bourne Ultimatum (2007)
The superspy uses a book to beat a man half to death, giving new meaning to the term ”book club.”

2. Dogma (1999)
Damon plays an avenging angel, Loki, who brings his bloody wrath upon the heads of fast-food execs, among others.

3. Good Will Hunting (1997)
”How do you like them apples?” Damon’s genius janitor shows up a Harvard Yardster at his own game.

4. The Departed (2006)
While Damon is cool as a cucumber in sunglasses, Mark Wahlberg ends up having the last laugh.

5. Saving Private Ryan (1998)
He gives it a good try, but it’s hard for your ass to be bad when it’s getting saved by other people.

6. The Informant! (2009)
With 30 extra pounds of pudge, he plays a goofball who blows it as a whistle-blower.
