Suffering from amnesia and riddled with bullets, Jason Bourne (Matt Damon) is pulled out of the Mediterranean Sea. There is only one clue to his identity: a laser device, implanted under his skin, that identifies a Swiss bank account number. After locating the contents of the account, Bourne finds himself the target of the CIA and pays Marie (Franka Potente) to drive him to Paris on what turns out to be a breathtaking trip. Based on Robert Ludlum's novel.

Not a bad remake of the classic story as Richard E. Grant takes on the role of Sir Percy Blakeney who saves aristocrats from the guillotine during the French Revolution. Blakeney disguises himself and rescues innocent victims who are sentenced to the guillotine. Unbeknownst to his wife Marguerite (Elizabeth McGovern), Blakeney carries out his efforts and leaves behind a red pimpernel flower for which he is named. When Chauvelin (Martin Shaw) closes in on the case, he uses Marguerite to trap the Pimpernel.
