The Bourne Supremacy is about David Webb, played by Matt Damon, who is trying to leave his past with the CIA behind and get on with his life with his girlfriend. During a CIA operation an agent is killed and several million dollars is stolen. One of the only clues that the CIA has to go on is a partial finger print of Jason Bourne found at the scene. There is only one minor problem, Jason Bourne does not exist. David Webb worked for the CIA under the name Jason Bourne but warned the CIA that they should leave him alone now as his days of working for them are over especially since they have already tried to kill him. The fingerprint is an obvious attempt to frame Bourne but the CIA will not let it go and someone tries to kill David Webb thinking he is still Jason Bourne. In the process David Webb’s girlfriend gets caught in the crossfire and killed. This sets David Webb off on a tirade and sends him straight back at the very people that were trying to kill him. The movie winds through small European city streets in small European cars and the action is non stop and the excitement is heightened by the way the movie is filmed. It looks like you are following a real life documentary and the audience is drawn right in to the action. In the end David Webb, now back to using his skills and identity as assassin Jason Bourne, goes right back at the CIA and decides that the only way to take on the CIA is to take them down. He doesn’t feel sorry for them because, after all, he warned them to leave him alone.
The Bourne Supremacy has all of the stars from The Bourne Identity in it like Brian Cox playing CIA top guy Ward Abbott and Franka Potente as Maria the girlfriend. This movie was an international smash hit and it deserved to be as it is as much, if not more, entertaining and exciting that the original movie and Matt Damon gives an extremely convincing performance as an former CIA operative who has had enough and decides that it is time to take down the machine that is trying to take him down first.
