Storyline

Two years ago, Jason Bourne thought he had walked away from his past. But now the past catches up to Jason Bourne when the CIA threatens to ruin his new life. Bourne and Marie have maintained their anonymous, underground existence at the cost of permanence. Fueled by splintered nightmares and haunted by the past he cannot remember, Bourne moves Marie from city to city, trying to remain one step ahead of the threat implicit in every unexplained stranger's glance, every "wrong number" phone call--that at any second, without any warning, he might get pulled back into the world he hopes he left behind. Written by Anthony Pereyra {hypersonic91@yahoo.com}

Trivia

In a 2012 BAFTA Screenwriters' Lecture, uncredited screenwriter Brian Helgeland explained that part of Tony Gilroy's initial script was set in the USSR, even though that government had fallen over 10 years earlier. Helgeland was brought on five days before production began and completely rewrote Gilroy's script. Although the studio rejected the new script, they did change the USSR setting. Throughout production, Paul Greengrass would change Gilroy's script with Helgeland's, resulting in the final film. See more »

Goofs

When Pamela Landy arrives in Berlin she and her team get into two black vehicles. The next shot shows these vehicles driving down the road and it is clearly visible that the first vehicle's number plate is 'BAS7227' and the second vehicle's number plate is 'BWB942'. However when the shot changes you are able to see the vehicles from the back, and vehicle 'BAS7227' is now second in the convoy while vehicle 'BWB942' is first. See more »

Alternate Versions

The NBC TV network version does the usual time and content edits. The most obvious change is Abbott's suicide being shown off-screen with a cut to outside the building and the gunshot sound and audio of Pamela Landy's shock being heard, all contrary to the theatrical version which showed it in more intense detail.

As Good As The First One

Matt Damon returns for the second of the "Bourne" movies in "The Bourne Supremacy." Living in India with his girlfriend (played by Franka Potente), Damon's worst fears comes true when he is pursued by a secret agent (Karl Urban). Believing it is the CIA out to kill him, Damon takes the fight to them, unaware that Urban works for a rich, Russian businessman who wants Damon dead to tie up loose ends that began in the first movie. Complicating matters is that Urban has framed Damon for the deaths of a few CIA agents. With two groups out to kill him, Damon not only has to fight to stay alive, he has to figure out why he is being targeted for termination and by who. Although "Supremacy" has a new director, the feel of the first movie carries over to this one — in other words, if you liked "Identity," you will like "Supremacy." Fast pacing, frenetic action, a likable hero, and a new revelation of Damon's past all lead to a very entertaining movie. My most memorable, movie moment of "The Bourne Supremacy" is the scene when Damon fights another Treadstone agent. The fight is raw, brutal, and nasty — something "Bourne" fans have come to expect.
