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.
In the scene where the assassins are coming up after Bourne has talked to his boss you see the third assassin inserting a new magazine into his rifle. However, the sound heard as he inserts the magazine is that of a round being chambered. Additionally, ri
In the very final minutes of the movie the camera pans across a Mediterranean vista to a plaza where Marie now lives and works. We hear what is usually regarded as the dolphin call. The sound has long been known to be the doctored call of an Australian ko
After the assassin breaks through the window into Jason's apartment, he empties his submachine gun in three bursts. When the magazine is empty, you can hear "click click click click click click click". In reality, when the weapon is out of ammunition, the

The two police officers who wake up Jason on the park bench in Zurich speak standard German with a strong Swiss German accent. They would have talked to Jason in Swiss German before perhaps switching to German once they realized that he was not Swiss.
When Jason nearly falls off the ledge, it is clearly a stunt double as the double has curly/shaggy hair while Damon's hair is short.
The wanted poster put together by Nikki (written in German) in Paris has grammatical and spelling errors all over it (ie. "Verhaftungsantrag" instead of the correct "Haftbefehl").
Close-ups of Marie holding the papers from the assassin's bag (when she examines the contents of the bag at the apartment and then in the car at the train station), the nails on the hands are long with clear polish, but Marie's nails are short with multi-

When the Washington computer is activating agents in various cities, the display misspells Mannheim as "Manheim".

When Ward Abbott is testifying on Capitol Hill about the CIA's programs, there are Washington, DC city flags behind the panel to which Abbott is speaking. Although the event is taking place in Washington, there would never be city flags displayed at a Fed
After the assassin breaks through the window into Jason's apartment, he empties his submachine gun in three bursts. When the magazine is empty, you can hear "click click click click click click click". In reality, when the weapon is out of ammunition, there would be one click only as the weapon is a Micro Galil and fires from a closed bolt with no bolt hold-open device.
When the assassins are coming up after Bourne has talked to his boss you see the third assassin inserting a new magazine into his rifle. However, the sound heard as he inserts the magazine is that of a round being chambered. Additionally, right before he is shot by Bourne as Bourne falls, he is heard to chamber another round (this would in actuality be correct at that point, as he hadn't chambered a round initially, only loaded a magazine.)
Close-ups of Marie holding the papers from the assassin's bag (when she examines the contents of the bag at the apartment and then in the car at the train station), the nails on the hands are long with clear polish, but Marie's nails are short with multi-colored dark polish.
When Jason opens the safety deposit box in the Gemeinschaft Bank in Zurich, the contents are spread evenly around the tray, with the heavy gun on the left. But the box had just been carried upright (by the handle) and set down on the table, so that the contents should all be in a heap on the right-hand side.
When Jason is telling Marie about his situation in the cafe on the highway, the red bag is on Jason's right next to the aisle. In mid-sentence the camera switches to a long shot and the bag has jumped to Jason's left and is flush against the wall. When the camera moves back, the bag is back to its original place.
When Bourne is on the fire escape at the consulate and he drops the red bag, there is a car parked beside the building. In the next shot, we only see the bag. The car has vanished. Then as he swings onto the ledge, the car is back. Then as he climbs down the wall, the car has disappeared.
At the consulate sequence in Zürich, when Jason escapes via the fire escape platform by going under it and clinging to the side of the building, he basically clears most of the previously undisturbed snow off the platform. However, when the marine arrives moments later, the platform is again covered with undisturbed snow as it was before Jason arrived at the platform.
When Jason finds the hidden items in the safety deposit box there are two green passports on top with the top one being from Brazil. At this time his hands are empty. He is then shown reacting to a noise and turning around with a green passport in his hands. When he reaches back into the box, the passports are still in the same order.
While recovering on the fishing boat and in the Zurich scenes, Bourne is wearing a sweater with holes on the back that match the locations of his bullet wounds. But when the boat captain cut the wet suit off to administer first aid, Bourne was not wearing a sweater beneath it.
The BMW used by The Professor can be seen earlier in the film, used as an "extra" during the car chase through Paris. During the same chase, another car, a BMW 735 is seen parked and unoccupied during the same chase when a couple of pedestrians leap onto the bonnet to avoid Bourne and Marie in the Mini; 30 seconds later, this same car is seen driving along the side of the Seine prior to being involved in an accident with a police motorcyclist and another vehicle, sustaining substantial damage. Just over a minute later, the same car is seen, undamaged, braking to let Bourne and a police car out of a side street.
When sitting in the car outside the train station we see someone walk to the right in the background pulling a blue suitcase wearing blue jeans and a khaki top. When we cut back to the same view a few seconds later the same man is walking past again to the right.
When Jason is talking to Marie in the car about giving herself up to cops, some cops approach the car. In the following chase scene Jason backs up his Mini and nearly hits the front part of the bus. Then a police cars takes the place between his Mini and the bus. In the following shot however you can see absolutely no cars or buses behind the cop. After this the bus is on its place again.
When the Italian sailor first spots Bourne in the water, Bourne's emergency strobe light is on and flashing. It is still on as the sailors are dragging him on board their boat. Later when Bourne is shot and falls off the yacht his strobe is not on and is not flashing. Since Bourne was on a super top secret mission he is unlikely to be wearing a strobe anyway. There was no indication that the CIA was going to pick him up after his mission anyway. Secret agents don't wear emergency strobe lights when they are assassinating foreign heads of state.
When the professor is driving the BMW at night, the only lit exterior lamps are the daytime running lamps (high beam bulbs running on low voltage). However, when we see the interior of the vehicle in the next shot, the orange dashboard lights are illuminated, which would only occur if the car's parking or headlamps were turned fully on.
When Jason finds his passport in the safety deposit box, it shows his address in French postal code 75005. When he catches the assassin in his house, they find instructions telling the assassin where to find Jason's house, and the sheet lists his house in French postal code 75006.
When Jason is first loaded on the fishing boat in the beginning of the movie, and later when he is shown on Wambosi's boat and in the ocean after being shot, he is wearing a wetsuit. However, several scenes show Jason wearing a knit sweater with bullet holes in the back matching wear he was shot. He was not wearing that sweatshirt when he was shot, nor would it be practical to be diving wearing it.
While Jason is clinging on the side of the consulate wall under the catwalk, he looks down at the bag on the sidewalk after the Marines close the door. When we see the bag from Jason's point of view, we can see the catwalk railing in the bottom of the shot indicating the camera is standing on the catwalk and not from the wall below it.
In the consulate, we first see a Marine Corps SSgt handing out weapons from the armory to the Marine security force before pursuing Bourne. When we next see him he is equipped with a Heckler & Koch MP5K submachine gun. When the same SSgt then opens the catwalk door to look around for Bourne, he is shown carrying a Colt M-16 rifle.
After Marie calls Eamon's house from the parking lot near the highway, she crosses the lot to where Jason is taping up the rear passenger window. During alternating shots, the car is in the same position until the last shot where it is now parked on the other side of the lot (closer to the pay phone).
When Jason and Marie are driving from Zurich to Paris, they can be seen on a country road next to a railroad track with high mountains in the background. While it is true that between Zurich and Basel, the railroad track is at some points next to the road, they would certainly not have taken a country road. There are highways directly leading from Zurich via Basel to Paris. Furthermore, there are no mountains that high anywhere near the route they are taking. The only mountains that could possibly be seen by them is the Jura, which is no higher than 1720 meters. The mountains shown are however clearly supposed to be the Alps.
When Jason and Maria drive from the US consulate in Zurich (filmed in Prague), through the side window a large concentration of cheap and old Eastern European cars (including GDR's plastic vehicle Trabant) can be seen parked by the pavement. Possible in Prague, impossible in Zurich.
The names on his Russian passport are written both in Cyrillic and Latin letters. In Cyrillic they say "Lshtshfum, Ashef" (which is a total nonsense - it is matching Russian letters from buttons on English keyboard), and in Latin letters it is "Kiniaev, Foma". (In the sequel The Bourne Supremacy, his Russian passport correctly has "Kiniaev, Foma" in both scripts.)
One of the musical score songs is entitled 'On Bridge No. 9', referring to Bourne and Conklin on Pont Neuf in Paris. While 'neuf' is 'nine' in French, it is also the masculine singular for 'new', which is the case here. Pont Neuf is actually the 'New Bridge' in Paris, not 'Bridge No. 9".
When the Professor is shooting at Bourne at the farmhouse, his first shots are on full auto, clearly audible. But the selector is set to single fire and the auto lock is on, seen in a sideways shot (the white circle behind the selector). You need to open the rifle up to unlock the auto switch, otherwise the selector is locked to safe or single.
When Jason is briefing Marie, before she goes into the hotel lobby, he asks her what the number for the payphone is. She responds, "616-2468" (a 7 digit number). In Paris, pay phones and fixed phones have number 01XXXXXXXX (10 digits), usually given in pairs.
While the license plate on Marie Kreutz's Mini Cooper shows basically the correct design ("ZH" as acronym for Zurich and the Swiss cross), the typeface of the letters and of the figure is not as on official license plates in Switzerland. And there would also be a small black dot between "ZH" and the figure, which is missing in the movie.
When Bourne is checking his Brazilian passport, the name Gilberto de Piento is not his, but the consul who issued the passport. In the old version of the Brazilian passport, like the one he owns, the personal information would be on a separate page from the photo.
As Jason rummages through the farmhouse drawer for weapons, he comes across a loose 12ga shotgun cartridge, and then a small box sized for about 6 total. This size box is used for buckshot and slugs (which are used for big game) because not many shots are fired on one hunt. Considering what happens to the fuel tank on Jason's first shot, he must have been using this type of ammunition. But when he lifts the Professor into a sitting position, the wounds and damage to clothing are clearly from bird shot (many tiny BBs, for which a "shotgun" is named). A slug would have left a single large hole for each impact; buckshot leaves several medium-sized holes in a group for each impact. Even if Jason had found another box of bird shot off-camera, there would be no reason for him to switch to that since it's not lethal (at the ranges he was firing) to animals larger than a duck.
The Professor uses a SIG rifle with a suppressor on the barrel, as indicated by the sound of suppressed gunfire when he is shooting at Bourne and Wombosi. However, when the Professor is assembling and dissembling the rifle, the "suppressor" is clearly just a handguard that encloses the barrel, which would not silence the rifle. An actual suppressor is threaded onto the front of the barrel. When Bourne pursues the Professor in the field, you can see that the rifle also lacks the threads necessary to mount a suppressor.
When the fishing boat captain treats Bourne's wounds he checks his whole body and discovers the strange scar on his hip. But as this is a scar and not a wound requiring attention there is no reason for him to cut out the ID chip from his hip. The clues to Bourne's identity should never have been revealed from this. Bourne should leave the fishing boat with no clue to his identity and the film's writers would have had to find another way to reveal his identity.
When Treadstone activates its assassins, and the Professor is shown teaching how to play piano, he checks his phone, and the message text is shaking as he closes the phone, indicating that the text originally was not displayed by the phone, but it was digitally added later.
When escaping from the safe house Bourne jumps/falls down 5 floors of the building shooting one agent as he falls. He lands on top of the body of another agent before rolling away. getting up and exiting apparently uninjured. This fall would have been at least 15 - 20 meters and Bourne should have been killed or severely injured by the fall.
When Marie and Jason are driving to Paris it is obviously in the dead of winter. When they arrive in Paris and Marie awakens Jason to give him breakfast, the trees in the background are leafed out and are completely green. The morning arrival scene in Paris was obviously filmed at an entirely different time of year. The subsequent scene of Marie and Jason driving to Jason's apartment shows the trees bare again.
When the assassins receive their messages on their cell phones the first one receives the message on a Motorola phone which - as other phones also - isn't able to display the short message in the way as shown with light letters in small dark bars. The message clearly looks like a computer overlay.
From the first viewing of Eamon's farmhouse through The Professor's rifle's viewfinder until the time that Eamon, his children, and Marie drive away, the red Jeep Cherokee alternates between pointing in towards the property (as when Eamon arrived) and pointing away (as when they are leaving). This happens not just once, but twice, although the car would not have been moved by anyone at all while they were sleeping overnight.
At the end the camera pans across a Mediterranean vista to a plaza where Marie now lives and works. We hear what is usually regarded as the dolphin call. The sound has long been known to be the doctored call of an Australian kookaburra bird, but since the days of Flipper has been Hollywood's substitute for the sound of a dolphin.
When Ward Abbott is testifying on Capitol Hill about the CIA's programs, there are Washington, DC city flags behind the panel to which Abbott is speaking. Although the event is taking place in Washington, there would never be city flags displayed at a Federal or Congressional proceeding, only USA flags.
When Jason first meets Marie, outside of the Embassy, the amount of snow on the top of her car changes when the camera angle changes.
The chase in Paris follows a totally impossible way, mixing several famous spots like Place Vendôme, Montmartre, the Front de Seine and the quais near the Louvre. All those places are several km from each others and absolutely not seen in a possible order.
On Bourne's U.S. passport, his birthplace is listed as "USA". On U.S. passports, birthplaces are listed as U.S. states for people born in the United States. Whereas, for naturalized Americans, it is listed as the foreign country of their birth.
