Jason Bourne is living in India when he is framed by Russian agent Kirill for the theft of millions from the CIA. Kirill begins to pursue Bourne, intending to assassinate him, but while Bourne and his girlfriend, Marie, are on the run, a shot meant for him kills her instead. Vowing revenge, Bourne sets out to prove his innocence and bring the culprits to justice, but he has to evade CIA head Pamela Landry, who is convinced he is guilty.

Background Info

After watching the first, we knew we would be indulging in the sequel of the Bourne Identity pretty quickly. The annoying thing is the third one is only available on iTunes to purchase, and we just want to rent it. We may have to wait a while before finishing the trilogy.

00:01:28 - Goa, India. Noted. 00:02:49 - He still doesn’t remember stuff! Way to make two films out of one bout of amnesia. 00:03:53 - What he needs is a blog. 00:07:50 - I didn’t know you could apply fingerprints like that. Gosh!** **00:10:14 - Presumably she did not have her scooter rental business in Goa. They must have been moving about a lot.** **00:13:39 - I do remember this bit. Boo.** **00:18:13 - He can hold his breath forever!** **00:20:04 - Now I start getting confused.** **00:23:05 - Naples, Italy.** **00:25:46 - People are not nice to each other within the CIA.** ****00:29:28 **- “Let them know what they’re dealing with.” A guy who can do anything, that’s what! **00:31:42 - So, he wanted to get caught, I think. ****00:32:48 - I’m surprised he needs to write her name and number down. He’s super memory boy! (Apart from the amnesia thing.) ********00:35:15 - Amsterdam, Netherlands. ****00:38:07 **- Munich, Ger… Ah, I give up. This is half of Europe covered. **00:41:55 **- How much damage can you do with a rolled up magazine? **00:43:50 - He’s so freaking clever. Using a toaster as a fuse. ****00:48:40 - I quite like this Landy lady. Very efficient. ****00:52:26 - She may have read about it in a book. This was a book! ****00:53:04 **- I quite like Nikki too. She is brave. **00:57:03 - Actually, she’s not very brave. But I still like her. ****00:59:12 **- “His mind is broken. We broke it.” At least he is taking some kind of responsibility for it. **01:02:37 **- Ohhh, he is not a nice guy. **01:04:15 **- Seems wrong that hotels take your passport, even if it’s only to make sure you pay. **01:07:59 **- Spiderman Bourne again. **01:09:31 - Aww, again the poor local police. It’s not even their fight. ****01:15:57 - The man makes a fair point. Marie didn’t get in the way all by herself. ****01:17:44 **- How did he know that she knew? **01:18:16 **- How did she know that he knew that she knew? **01:18:33 **- I am so following this, I swear. **01:25:12 **- He’s still limping. At least we know he is actually human. **01:26:15 **- Bad leg and a bad shoulder now. **01:28:38 **- I wonder how many maps he has stored in his head now. **01:31:54 **- How is that car still going? **01:37:56 - Bourne always feels bad when a child is involved. Has a conscience, you know. **

Conclusions

I really liked this, and it made a lot more sense than the last time I watched it, but I still got a bit confused towards the end. Why do there have to be so many sides all against each other? Anyway, my fascination with Matt Damon continues to grow, and I can’t wait to see the third movie. Whenever that may be.
