** Marie's death in the opening. Bad enough that they offed a relatively likeable character, but the fact that it serves as nothing more than the instigating moment is kind of insulting. There's no emotional confrontation with her killer (hell not really a confrontation period), nothing but Bourne reverting back to his icy-cold BadAss persona. It's like they decided, "hey, there's nothing else we can really do with her, let's kill her."

*** There is a newspaper clipping in ''Film/TheBourneUltimatum'' that is [[FreezeFrameBonus on screen for about 5 seconds]] when Bourne is reading the Guardian paper on the train. It specifies that the Treadstone agent in Germany was actually a [[UsefulNotes/CzechRepublic Czech]] citizen living in Munich. It sounds like he may have originally been Treadstone's Czech asset but got transferred over to Germany.

*At the beginning, when Aaron is hiking, he is shown counting his pills, and later before he meets the contact, he is shown hiding his pill container in his boot. Then he tells his contact that he lost his chems, and tells hima story that doesn't fit with what we have just seen. . Is it ever explained why he was misleading the other agent, since he still had chems?

* What exactly does wiring a passport to a disposable camera do to it? I mean, it looks very clever for Aaron to be going all MacGyver on those forged passports, but I was just wondering why exactly he had to do it.

* How does Bourne get around and live for 3 whole movies? In Identity it's shown he has a bag full of money and passports. But firstly, weren't these passports given to him by Treadstone, so they would know when and where he's using them? Secondly, where is he storing all the money and passports? He often has to travel light and doesn't seem to take them from place to place.

** Presumably, Treadstone agents are encouraged to set up their own legends to prevent leaks. Also, it's entirely possible has has caches of passports and supplies scattered all over the
place. (In ''Legacy'', we see Cross has a bunch of passports stuck in the door panel of a truck, so it's possible they're all trained to do that).

** Because classified information is just that: classified information. Even though they are members of the Congress, they still do not have the authorization to read those documents, and therefore Allen gets penalized for that.

* Why was Pamela under such scrutiny in The Bourne Legacy after leaking the information when in The Bourne Ultimatum she clearly was sending it to Congress rather than the media. She was sending the information from one secure facility to another, even calling to ask for a secure fax line.

* In ''Ultimatum'' when Nikki is fleeing from Desh why does she not use a headscarf to hide her super-conspicuous blonde-streaked hair?

***** Holder claimed the situation is highly unlikely; the document was originally confidential; Obama followed up by saying he plans to consult the Congress about it. More to the point, you're talking about CIA. CIA doesn't talk.

I don't recall any negative consequences. Tony Gilroy may think we are better than we are.
