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}

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.

Fans of Identity won't be Disappointed,
25 November 2014 | by lesleyharris30See all my reviews

The Bourne Supremacy is a brilliant movie with a very well developed storyline and a fantastic cast.Matt Damon is back and as great as ever in his second outing as Jason Bourne,and his acting is very inspired and you don't feel like he did this sequel for the paycheck any bit.Fans of the first movie,Bourne Identity,certainly won't be disappointed,it's just as good,if not better.Idenity had a lot of scenes that were very calm and consisted of pretty lengthy dialogue,this didn't bother me but I liked that this movie was pretty much action and suspense all the way through,it kept me excited and at the edge of my seat.My only problem with Supremacy in comparison to Identity is that Bourne is not as likable,there are several scenes,particularly towards the end,where he comes across as a simply bad person,which at times was difficult since we are suppose to support this character,but it wasn't a huge issue.Action packed and intense,the Bourne Supremacy is very enjoyable and I would recommend it to anyone looking for a great action or thriller.

Jason Bourne is once again forced to take up his former life as a trained assassin when a CIA operation goes wrong.

Best Performance: Matt Damon
