In The Bourne Identity, Jason Bourne might have found a way to be free, but his nightmares still haunt him and his memories still elude him. Jason (Matt Damon) and Marie (Franka Potente) are living out of the way in India; they've been moving around and trying to stay out of sight. When Bourne notices someone new in town who just doesn't look right, he knows their cover is blown. The CIA is after him, and he uses all of his skills to find out why.

Within the CIA, Pamela Landy (Joan Allen) is investigating why one of her operations failed. This brings her to look more closely at Treadstone, the project that produced Jason Bourne and other super-spies like him. Landy's research leads her to Ward Abbott (Brian Cox), who oversaw Treadstone (remember in the last film?). He's reluctant to help with her investigation as Treadstone was an embarrassment he'd rather not be associated with. Together they work to bring Bourne in.

Jason surfaces to gather information, and in his investigation discovers that the actions that brought him out of hiding come from within the CIA.

Director's commentary, making-of featurettes, and Universal's U-Control interactive features add an extra dimension to the film's subsequent viewings by adding informational overlays and picture-in-picture details about the making of the film. The best new thing about this release is the innovation of adding a DVD layer to the opposite surface of the Blu-ray disc. Take it on the go, and you can still enjoy the film and many of the extra features included, at a really reasonable price.

The Bourne Supremacy combines a gripping story (however loosely based on Robert Ludlum's novel), fabulous locations, and pulse-pounding action to produce a kinetic film that doesn't slow down until the credits roll. I'd like to believe that there are agents in the world who have the same skill set as Bourne, but that might be a bit far-fetched. I don't care, I love it!
