Storyline

The events in this movie take place around the same time as the events in The Bourne Ultimatum (2007). When a British reporter was writing an expose about Black Ops operations Treadstone and Black Briar, and the ones responsible for them are concerned. And when Jason Bourne, former Treadstone operative got the file on Treadstone and Black Briar and gave it to Pamela Landy who then passed it to the media. When the men behind Treadstone and Black Briar learn of this, they're concerned how this will affect other ops they have. They decide it's best to shut down all ops and make sure make everyone involved disappears. They try to take out Aaron Cross who is part of another op called Outcome, but he manages to survive. He then seeks out Dr. Marta Shearing who worked on him when he began. It seems part of the program is for all subjects to take medications but he has run out, which is why he seeks her. But someone tries to kill her. He saves her and she tells him, he should have stopped ... Written by rcs0411@yahoo.com

Trivia

When Jeremy Renner tells Rachel Weisz in the car if she knew his name after she sees him while he was apart of the Blackbriar Project, 13 times and doesn't know it. However, when goes to rescue her at her house before they were going to killer, she does recognize him. This is a similar reference to Matt Damon and Julia Stiles characters from the Bourne series in which they really don't connect until The Bourne Ultimatum (2007), where it was revealed that they may have had a relationship together before Damon became Bourne.

Goofs

When Aaron shows up at the remote house to rescue Dr. Shearing, he finds her upstairs with an empty revolver. When he kneels in front of her, with the camera over his shoulder looking at Dr. Shearing, he grabs the gun with his left hand. When the camera angle changes to looking at Aaron over Dr. Shearing's shoulder, he is shown grabbing the gun again. See more »

Well done!
28 September 2012 | by See all my reviews

I was really skeptical going in, but having seen it, I have to say it was frigging AWESOME! Loved every second of it! SO worth the money! Finally something taking Bourne back in business! Bourne Ultimatum was just OK because of the constant stupid camera shaking that just made me mad so I did not enjoy that movie. The camera shaking was just too much. It made it very hard to follow the movie. This one tho was just smooth and cool! Well done Tony! Having said that I would have liked that Matt would have made at least a cameo Its sad and unprofessional for Matt do take a stance like that. "I will only do Bourne with Paul" What are you twelve?". Matt you are the coolest guy on earth, but Tony made a better Bourne then Paul did with the last two.

I really hope Renner and Damon will be in the next Bourne and Tony Gilroy directing!
