I didn't notice that this was glossed over the first time I watched it, but I see two possible explanations. At the end of The Bourne Identity, Jason Bourne briefly had access to some information about Treadstone when he infiltrates a safehouse. He could have found the information there and kept it. (This is a possible explanation, but I'm not crazy about ...

If I remember correctly, what he meant was this: There was a redundant charge that never went off. Only one charge would be needed, higher up on the lines where they converged close together. This charge would blow all of them. What this was supposed to look like was a mistake. That "Jason Bourne" had left a second explosive that malfunctioned, which left ...

The Bourne Directory says: Jason Bourne is a masterful expert in Kali martial arts. He is seen using it in the movies and video game. Further, amongst his weapons are listed are: Jeet Kune Do Krav Maga Kali Martial Arts Finally, the page about the game Robert Ludlum's The Bourne Conspiracy says: As a third-person espionage action game, players move ...

As I understand it, there isn't much overlap at all. That scene is effectively a "flash forward", a teaser to the events of the sequel, shown well out of chronological order. If you remove that final scene, then the movies take place in sequence, one almost immediately after the other. At the end of Bourne Supremacy, Jason escapes from the assassin the CIA ...

In her book Robert Ludlum: A Critical Companion, Gina MacDonald draws from The Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of the American Psychiatric Association to discuss author Ludlum’s development of the causes and symptoms of Webb/Bourne’s ailments (p 134-135). Bourne is the deadly alter ego that Webb assumed to survive the jungle warfare in Vietnam and ...

The Treadstone project took individuals (like David Webb - who would become Jason Bourne) and used brainwashing techniques/ behavior-modification programs to break them down and rebuild them (stripping away their morality or hesitancy to kill) as ultimate assassins. The modification had chronic physiological effects such as headaches and light sensitivity. ...

What was Zorn referring to by, "Why put the charge all the way down here?" Did he mean "why put the charge in the breaker room rather than somewhere else in the building?" If so, where would a better spot have been? Observation #1 The office building's electrical closet was located in the basement, and the entrance to it was in a back/side alley. When ...

Well acording to Born.Fandom.Com/Wiki Kirill originally frames Jason Bourne by planting his fingerprints and proceeds to kill the agent and the source, stealing the files and money and giving them to Russian oil magnate Yuri Gretkov. Hope this is what you're searching for.

Question 1. Why does he check in? .. He didn't have to go to the desk and give his passport, he could have gone to the hotel, causally walk in, and go upstairs without arousing too much suspicion. Jason Bourne wanted to be tracked. When he was first traveling from Tangiers to Naples, Bourne had no problem giving security his passport. And then, when ...

I believe it's a Hollywood blend based on a Filipino style called Kali but I'm afraid I don't have any supporting links, do seem to remember something in one of the directors commentaries (or a extra) from Identity?

She suspected that he did because Conklin was making a mess as he attempted to capture Bourne. When first questioned, he denies it, but because Landy read the files, she knew Abbott was in charge and that Conklin reported to him. He decides to tell her what happened, about Bourne failing a mission, and how Conklin couldn't bring him in. Is it ...

Why does Jarda attack Jason They could have escaped together and Jason could have had many of his questions answered if he kept Jarda alive. Jarda was trying to capture/kill Bourne It's pretty clear that Jarda had called for assistance (apparently by using his home security keypad) and was playing for time (he even looks at his watch) then....when the ...

While Bogden's answer is fine, I just want to clarify that Abbot was the clear source of the fingerprint, given his access to Bourne's files with the logical conclusion that the conspiracy to frame him was only concocted following the murder of Conklin and Bourne going to ground. Indeed, Born.Fandom.Com/Wiki, specifically states that "Unbeknownst to Landy ...

If the 'frame' had gone to plan, Bourne would have been dead and Abbott would not have been worried about Landy tracing the fingerprints back to Bourne and Treadstone. 'Dead in a ditch. Drunk in a Bar in Mogadishu' - at the point that Landy first confronts Abbott he is still under the impression that Kirril had assassinated Bourne and was confident that ...

There is no explanation. I really cannot see the CIA allowing their Treadstone assets to know each other's addresses. I can see thing giving Bourne's Paris address to Castel and the others when they wanted him dead. But alive? I don't see it. In fact, the movie never hinted that the Treadstone assets worked together. The Professor didn't seem famliar ...
