In the 2002 film Agent Without a Past, based on Robert Ludlum's novel, a new hero emerges: a professional assassin who attempts to revive his memory and flee the haunting shadows of his past. The suspenseful and intricate thriller features a strong performance by Matt Damon as Agent Jason Bourne.
Jason Bourne now returns to the screen in the sequel. Two years ago, he thought he had escaped his past. Now the past is catching up with him again.
Bourne and Marie continue to live in anonymity. Bourne is haunted by nightmares and memories. He drags Marie from town to town. He tries to always be at least one step ahead of the threat he senses in every look and every phone "mistake," the danger he expects at every second. But the threat keeps returning him to the world he wanted to escape from.
When a secret agent shows up in the peaceful village that is their temporary home, Bourne and Marie hastily leave the place. A new global cat-and-mouse game begins, and Jason Bourne must return to his past, even though the secret 'Operation Treadstone' that created professional killers has already ended. Years ago, Bourne was told he couldn't make contact with anyone. The past has declared itself. They should have left him alone...
