Jason Bourne, the fifth film in the Bourne series comes out on July 29Th in theaters everywhere and I have not seen the whole series. So, what better place then here to start watching the series to catch up before the release of the film. For Ass Whoopin Wednesday, we are checking out the second film in the series The Bourne Supremacy which once again stars Matt Damon (The Bourne Identity) as Jason Bourne. Jason and Maria (Franka Potente) have been in hiding for the last two years, but a mysterious Russian hitman (Karl Urban) has managed to track him down in Goa, India. Kirill (Urban) manages to kill Maria instead of Jason and that sets Jason off to try and find some answers, but Jason walks into a sh** storm in Berlin. Jason is accused of murdering an agent and CIA official Landy (Joan Allen) is on the hunt. Bourne has to find some answers in order to clear his name before Landy can get to him. The film also stars Brian Cox (The Bourne Identity) as Ward Abbott, Julia Stiles (Save The Last Dance) as Nicky, Gabriel Mann (Revenge) as Daniel Zorn, Marton Csokas (xXx) as Jarda, Tom Gallop (Jerry Maguire) as Tom Cronin, Oksana Akinshina (Hipsters) as Irena Neski, and the film was directed by Paul Greengrass (Captain Phillips).

Day 174: The Bourne Identity (2002)
Jason Bourne comes out on July 29, 2016 and since I haven’t seen any of the Bourne films in the series, I figured I might as well start now. Also, since I do a weekly post called Ass Whoopin Wednesdays, I figured this would be the perfect place for it. So for almost every Wednesday, I will be reviewing every Bourne film in the series and I start with The Bourne Identity. Matt Damon (Good Will Hunting) plays government assassin Jason Bourne, but the only problem is that he doesn’t know that. You see Jason was shot and left for dead in the Mediterranean Sea and since he has come to he doesn’t know who he is or why all of a sudden people are after him. With the help of a girl he just met named Marie (Franka Potente), he’ll try to put the pieces together before he becomes extinct. The film also stars Chris Cooper (The Town) as Conklin, Clive Owen (Inside Man) as The Professor, Brian Cox (Troy) as Ward Abbott, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje (Thor: The Dark World) as Wombosi, Gabriel Mann (Revenge) as Zorn, Julia Stiles (10 Things I Hate About You) as Nicolette, Orso Maria Guerrini (The Conformist) as Giancarlo, and the film was directed by Doug Liman (Edge Of Tomorrow).
