Elevator Pitch Bourne is on the case again when he is named in a Guardian article, requiring him to visit London on the track of Blackfriar, and his own identity. The search takes him to Madrid, North Africa and back to New York for his final showdown with the CIA black ops organisation.
Content Much spectacular combat with, as we have come to expect from Bourne, a variety of weapons and martial arts techniques. Scenes in the secret CIA control rooms, with people typing and looking at screens. One or two spectacular car chases. One or two flashbacks of Bourne with his girlfriend, and a lot of him at the time of his initiation into Treadstone.
A View This film follows the structure of the Bourne Supremacy, but is no worse for that, since it provides a coherant plot. The Waterloo Station scene might be the high point of all the Bourne films so far, as the CIA attempt to silence the Guardian journalist. “He’s got help”, they exclaim. He certainly has. The film employed 150 stunt people and they did well.
