Here we go again
The Bourne Supremacy is the sequel to the successful Bourne Identity spy thriller. This movie, directed by a new director, is given a different yet extremely exciting feel to it. The casting is still great, with Matt Damon bringing a deadpan portrayal to the Bourne character. Hes very good in this role, which commits a great success to the whole of the movie. Supporting players Brian Cox and Julia Styles, along with newcomer Joan Allen, all provide stellar support for Bourne. The action is intense and really well done, and the plot is thrilling and will surprise you quite a bit. The camera-work is extremely fast paced, and overall it has a gritty, captivating style. With all of these elements together, you got one great action thriller that in many cases even surpasses Identity! Movies like this are hard to come by, in todays times with many action pictures that just don't work and become tedious. Ill give this near perfect- *** and 1/2 outs 4 Star's- definitely see The Bourne Identity before this- don't fret: you will be very entertained.Read full review

Five years and Bourne Is Still Supreme!
The film "The Bourne Supremacy" is the second in a trilogy of Bourne films, so by all means, watch "The Bourne Identity" first. This picks up the storyline, and delivers every bit as much of a punch as the first, from action sequences to a compelling story of a man who is a killing machine and doesn't remember how he got there.
With a tight ensemble, great cinematography, excellent location shoots in Europe, and a fine acting job by Matt Damon, this DVD is a great buy for less than a rental on eBay, and perfect Saturday night movie fare. I would highly recommend all three Bourne films to anyone. It's 007 with a twist!

The Bourne Supremacy
The government's most wanted amnesiac super-spy returns in this thrilling third installment in the Jason Bourne franchise. THE BOURNE ULTIMATUM picks up where the THE BOURNE SUPREMACY left off, with Bourne once again racing around the globe, desperate to uncover the secrets of his identity. Having just lost his girlfriend and only companion, his search for answers is now fuelled by much more than his own self-preservation. The film kicks off with Bourne tracking down a British journalist (Paddy Considine) who he believes has valuable information about his past. He quickly discovers that the government conspiracy runs far deeper than he realized, and so begins a riveting, action-packed game of cat and mouse with the CIA. Bourne plows through the bad guys like a mini-tornado, and after some breathtaking fight sequences and several nail-biting car chases, he closes in on the truth in a climactic stand-off on the streets (and rooftops) of New York City. Joan Allen and David Strathairn are excellent as two battling CIA directors, and Julia Styles pops up for a small but important turn as Bourne's former government contact. Matt Damon continues to give Bourne the perfect mix of tough guy determination and sad-eyed desperation, and despite his physics-defying fists, he never comes off as the invincible super hero. Rather, the appeal of Bourne remains in his humanness--he feels pain, bloodies his knuckles, and mourns the loss of his lover. It's this emotional and physical vulnerability that keeps you on the edge of the seat, holding your breath for him. Well, that and the totally awesome fight scenes, of course.Read full review

The Bourne Supremacy
In this sequeal to the original movie, it follows up with the corruption within the cia. A top member in the cia, who uses cia black ops money to buy oil futures and makes millions with a russian co-hort try and frame bourne with the killoings of 3 cia agents. But un-beknownest to anyone, the killings started in the first movie, when he kept remembering little things through the first film. And now, in the second film, these little things come out again. Marie, is killed by accident while she and bourne are trying to escape an assassination attempt. Bourne thinks it's the cia. In reality it is the greedy man's answer to a long awaited fix to an old problem. Pamela Landy, is trying to figure everything out. Bourne is just one step ahead of her in the game. The Police are 16 steps behind everyone. Bourne gets the goods on the corrupt official and turn them into Landy. The corrupt official, well.
Bourne makes his way into Russia to explain to a daughter of a family it was him who killed her parents, not a murder suicide. Leaving the daughter even more confused than ever. BY the time the end of the film comes about...you start to wonder, is it worth it. The cliffhanger part is in true bourne fashion. When he finally tells Landy to get some sleep, she looks tired.
And the classic scene is when bourne is on the move again. I would like to see a 3d sequel to this movie. Matt DAmon play an excellent part as Bourne, and I cannot see anyone else portraying this part.Read full review
