Movie propaganda

He was the perfect weapon until he became the target.

Jason Bourne (Matt Damon). He has no past. And he may have no future. His memory is blank. He only knows that he was fished out of the Mediterranean sea, his body riddled with bullets. There are a few clues. A frame of microfilm surgically implanted beneath the flesh of his hip. Evidence that plastic surgery has altered his face. Strange things that he says in his delirium - maybe code words. Initials: JB. And a number on the film negative that leads to a Swiss bank account, a fortune of four million dollars, and at last, a name: Jason Bourne.

But now he is marked for death, caught in a maddening puzzle, racing for survival through the deep layers of his buried past into a bizarre world of murderous conspirators - led by Carlos, the world's most dangerous assassin. And no one can help Jason Bourne but the woman who once wanted to escape him.
