 The Bourne Supremacy is the second installment in the Bourne franchise and continues the adventures of the skilled Jason Bourne. Jason Bourne is living in India with the love of his life, attempting to escape form the world of spies, governments, and killings. However, that adventurous but atrocious past soon catches up with him. A Russian assassin is hired to eliminate Jason and wipe him from existence, while also framing Bourne with the murder of several and theft of millions of dollars from the CIA. Although the Russian killer comes close to killing Jason, his shot ends up hitting the wrong person, and he kills Bourne's girlfriend, wiping away another person that Jason loves dearly. Jason Bourne must now seek revenge and clear his name, which will be more than just a little difficult, seeing as the entire CIA is after him, convinced he's guilty, and they are led by Pamela Landry, who wants Bourne to be held responsible for the death of two of her own agents. Bourne will need to put all of his skills and intelligence to the test, as he does his best to survive, and in the process, some of his memories slowly come back to him in confusing bits and pieces, as the truth starts to emerge.
