A body found floating in the Mediterranean Sea is picked up by an Italian fishing boat. The body has two bullets in its back, and a laser device that displays a numerical code implanted in the hip. But the body is not dead. "The Bourne Identity" begins places you in the center of the storm our main character faces- he doesn't remember who he is. Yet he does remember some things, like the fact the number code found implanted in his hip belongs to a Zurich bank account number and that he is a human weapon. On his journey of self-discovery he realizes he can speak many tongues and has many skills in the art of war- he is a well groomed killer. Stepping out of the bank in Zurich after almost getting nailed by an assassin, it's not long before he runs into Marie a happy-go-lucky wandering soul. Bourne offers her $20, 000 for a ride to Paris, while on the run from an ever-present 'agency' that is hunting him down…
