Armed with a license to kill, Secret Agent James Bond sets out on his first mission as 007, and must defeat a private banker to terrorists in a high stakes game of poker at Casino Royale, Montenegro, but things are not what they seem.
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
Unlike The Bourne Identity (2002), screenwriter Tony Gilroy read the book this time and claimed that he did a re-imagination, not an adaptation, of the novel. Gilroy wrote an original screenplay using key events and characters from the novel as a framework, though he replaced the traditional Carlos The Jackal-type villain with Kirill. See more »
When the Berlin SEK unit assaults the hotel Bourne just checked in to, some of the police officers carry Heckler & Koch G36A1 assault rifles (or, more accurately, civilian SL-8 versions of that weapon, mocked up to look like it). None of the German SEK units uses this type of weapon. It wouldn't make sense either, because it's too bulky for close quarters battle. See more »

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.

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.
