After escaping from the emotional and physical pain he previously encountered. Jason Bourne and his girlfriend Marie begin a new life as far away as possible. But when an assassination attempt on Bourne goes horribly wrong, Bourne must re-enter the life he wanted to leave behind, in order to find out the truth why they are still after him. Written by
In the house in Munich, when Jason Bourne uses the rolled newspaper as a weapon, the martial art he performs is derived from Escrima, an old Philippine martial art, also called Arnis or Kali. This fighting style mainly uses sticks to fight, and in modern times the use of everyday objects is taught, including ball pens (as seen in The Bourne Identity (2002)) and rolled up newspapers. In the film it is combined with Bruce Lee's Jeet Kune Do. See more »
During the chase scene near the start of the film, Marie gets shot in the back of the head, the bullet having entered through the back window of the 4x4. When we see the vehicle being pulled out of the water, the back window is intact. See more »

Greengrass's style for these kinds of movies is just perfect
Bourne is an intelligent guy He's not Bond who relies on potential gadget He has that cleverness to think on his feet, improvise, make up a plan, and execute it with unbelievable talent, using nothing but what's in front of him
Matt Damon has got all the Bourne elementsgreat actions, really cool ability, a great sense of immaculate timing and a little bit of understanding thrown in too Demon's instincts are profound where the given character is actually very gloomy
Jason Bournean ex-CIA agent infused with violence, is a man who's killed people in cold blood And yet you feel he's at war with himself Jason, is above all, emotionally truthful That's what director Paul Greengrass have done here It's that feeling of realism, of truthfulness
The car chase is magnificent It is about desperation Jason has got to get to his young woman's apartment to say sorry That was his only aim in that moment
Joan Allen brings that cool, cerebral intelligence to the part of Pamela Landy She's a worthy opponent for Bourne
"The Bourne Supremacy" takes us to real places in Europe like Berlin where the East-West conflict was focused; to Moscow, a place of uncertainty and peril and good fortune and to Goa, India's most charming of state capitals
