Mmm... these guys will never know what hit them...
The Robert Ludlum novel finally makes it to the big screen. Our hero, the titular Jason Bourne, is fished out of the water off the French coast, with two bullets in his back and a serious case of amnesia. His only clue is the name and number of a Swiss bank account. Getting to Switzerland, he discovers that he owns a huge pile of cash, some weapons and several passports, all his own, with different names. As he tries to unravel his past, he has to deal with the French police, and the CIA, desperate to terminate him. He finds that he has unique -- and deadly -- survival skills which he can't explain.
