The trouble with Bourne (Matt Damon) is that everyone wants to kill him and he doesn’t know why. Well, he’s an amnesiac and doesn’t even know who he is. Even when he’s just chilling out in Goa with Franka Potente, an assassin is after him. What develops in this, the second in the series, is a violent, energetic romp of a thriller involving oil, secrets, murders, cover-ups and shady (or not) characters from the CIA like Brian Cox and Joan Allen. A superman in everything but name, Bourne is more than a match for any number of hitmen as he travels the world seeking answers. Never seems to change his clothes, though, so don’t sit next to him on any of his numerous international flights.
