PG-13 | | Action, Mystery, Thriller
When Jason Bourne is framed for a CIA operation gone awry, he is forced to resume his former life as a trained assassin to survive.
When Bourne visits the assassin Jarda in Germany (Munich), it is never made clear how Jason knew where he was or even who he was. There is one section of dialogue exchanged as - Jarda: "Word in the ether was you'd lost your memory." Jason Bourne: "You still should have moved." - giving the only indication of remembrance. According to the script Jarda is actually the Driver in the Berlin Flashbacks Jason is having. Also, deleted dialogue between Jason and Jarda further explain that Jarda had found Bourne and Maria somewhere in Greece, but Bourne got a leg up on Jarda and could have killed him. In the script Jarda asks Bourne "Why didn't you kill me then?" in which Bourne replies "Because she didn't want me to.".
This is not a drill, soldier. We clear on that? This is a live project. You are go. Training is over. Training is over.
When the 4WD crashes into the river Bourne is able to take one breath of air before it fills with water. He then struggles to escape from the vehicle, pulls Marie clear and attempt to give her mouth to mouth three times. He then sits underwater for a period of time. Whilst Bourne may be very fit and trained to work underwater it seems impossible that he would have been able to perform all this strenuous activity and provide Marie with three mouthfuls of air, all on the one breath. He should have drowned himself.
The opening titles only include the production company and the title of the film.
The NBC TV network version does the usual time and content edits. The most obvious change is Abbott's suicide being shown off-screen with a cut to outside the building and the gunshot sound and audio of Pamela Landy's shock being heard, all contrary to the theatrical version which showed it in more intense detail.
