The Bourne Identity (PG-13, 4/5 stars, sale priced at $9.99 to own in HD)
Based very loosely on Robert Ludlum’s novel, the Bourne Identity is the story of a man whose wounded body is discovered by fishermen who nurse him back to health.
He can remember nothing and begins to try to rebuild his memory based on clues such as a Swiss bank account, the number of which is implanted in his hip.
He soon realizes that he is being hunted and takes off with Marie on a search to find out who he is – and why he is being hunted.

The Bourne Supremacy (PG-13, 4/5 stars, sale priced at $7.99 to own in HD)
When a CIA operation to purchase classified Russian documents is blown by a rival agent–who then shows up in the sleepy seaside village where Bourne and Marie have been living under assumed names–the pair collapse their lives and head out.
Bourne, who promised retaliation should anyone from his former life attempt contact, is forced to once again take up his life as a trained assassin to survive.
