JASON BOURNE (2016)
Jason Bourne || Twelve years after he exposed Operation Blackbriar and disappeared, Jason Bourne has finally recovered from his amnesia, isolating himself from the world and making a living by taking part in savage, bareknuckle fighting bouts. In Reykjavík, Nicky Parsons, who has been collaborating with a hacktivist group led by Christian Dassault, hacks into the CIA’s mainframe computer server to expose its black ops programs. This alerts Heather Lee, the head of the agency’s cybersecurity operations division, and CIA director Robert Dewey. In the process, Parsons finds documentation concerning Bourne’s recruitment into Treadstone and his father’s role in the program. She travels to Athens to find and inform him.
In Greece, Parsons and Bourne meet at Syntagma Square during a violent anti-government protest. They evade CIA teams sent after them, but Parsons is shot by the Asset, an ex-Blackbriar assassin who also holds a personal grudge against Bourne, having been captured and tortured as an unintentional consequence of Bourne’s exposure of Blackbriar. Before she dies, Parsons passes Bourne the key to a locker which holds the CIA files.
Therefore seeking answers about his past and family, Bourne locates Dassault in Berlin. Decrypting Parsons’ files, Bourne discovers that his father Richard Webb was a CIA analyst involved in the creation of the Treadstone program. A malware program implanted in the files gives the CIA Bourne’s location, and Dewey sends a team to capture him, while Lee remotely erases the files. Dassault attacks Bourne. But is incapacitated. However lee alerts Bourne to the team closing in, as she believes that he can be persuaded to return to the agency. Using the few leads he gathered in Berlin, Bourne tracks Malcolm Smith, a former Treadstone surveillance operative, in London and arranges to meet him in Paddington Plaza.
