Overall very good film with standout performances from the two leads. Potente gives a nuanced, classy performance. Damon is superb as usual.

In the Mediterranean Sea near Marseille, Italian fishermen rescue an unconscious American man floating adrift with two gunshot wounds in his back. The boat's medic finds a tiny laser projector surgically implanted under the man's skin at the hip. When activated, it displays a safe deposit box number in Zürich. The man wakes up and discovers he is suffering from memory loss. Though fluent in several languages and possessing unusual skills, he cannot remember anything about his identity or events prior to his rescue. When the ship docks, he sets off to investigate the deposit box.

At CIA headquarters in Langley, Virginia, Deputy Director Ward Abbott learns that a CIA assassination attempt against exiled Nigerian dictator Nykwana Wombosi failed. Meanwhile in Zürich, the amnesiac man incapacitates two policemen using advanced hand-to-hand combat when they attempt to arrest him. The next morning, he visits a bank and opens the safe deposit box of the account number displayed by the implanted projector to find several passports containing his picture under different names, nationalities and addresses, large amounts of assorted currencies, and a handgun. Taking an American passport name, Jason Bourne, he leaves with everything but the handgun.

As he leaves, a bank employee contacts Operation Treadstone, a CIA black ops program. Alexander Conklin, head of Treadstone, assures Abbott that he will clean up Bourne's failure against Wombosi, activating three agents to take down Bourne: Castel, Manheim, and The Professor. Chased by police, Bourne is then pursued through a U.S. consulate.

Fast paced action, which always keeps you on the edge of your seat. The hero knows nothing, and goes towards danger at every opportunity.

This a brilliant film, as are all three of the trilogy. Great fight sequences and pursuit action. The gorgeous Matt Damon at his best.
