Good enough to suggest long-term franchise potential, The Bourne Supremacy is a thriller fans will appreciate for its well-crafted suspense, and for its triumph of competence over logic (or lack thereof). Picking up where The Bourne Identity left off, the action begins when CIA assassin and partial amnesiac Jason Bourne (a role reprised with efficient intensity by Matt Damon) is framed for a murder in Berlin, setting off a chain reaction of pursuits involving CIA handlers (led by Joan Allen and the duplicitous Brian Cox, with Julia Stiles returning from the previous film) and a shadowy Russian oil magnate. The fast-paced action hurtles from India to Berlin, Moscow, and Italy, and as he did with the critically acclaimed Bloody Sunday, director Paul Greengrass puts you right in the thick of it with split-second editing (too much of it, actually) and a knack for well-sustained tension. It doesn't all make sense, and bears little resemblance to Robert Ludlum's novel, but with Damon proving to be an appealingly unconventional action hero, there's plenty to look forward to. --Jeff Shannon

5.0 out of 5 stars Better than the original Dec 22 2004
By A Customer
Format:DVD
There are some critics that dismiss this film because they find the camera work a bit shaky. The director only wanted to give the film a documentary-like feel and the fact is, that documentaries often have more fluid and sometimes jarring camera work. The acting is first rate, there are more unexpected twists than the original, the music score is memorable yet unobtrusive and the action scenes display first-rate execution. What more do you want from a summer popcorn flick? Unlike the original, you feel like you are a part of the action and much of this is due to the unorthodox camera work. This film is every bit as entertaining as the first one. The DVD is well produced with an outstanding and informative commentary track from the director. Highly recommended.

4.0 out of 5 stars Damn fine film. Dec 15 2004
Format:DVD
It isn't often that a movie gets my heart pumping, especially the second time I see it. I'm fairly desensitized to most of the tricks up Hollywood's sleeve. The Bourne Supremacy is different - they sought out an independent director with a compelling style, and they shot much of the movie as though you're a witness in the scene. I highly recommend it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Can't wait for the next Bond? Wait no more! Dec 22 2004
Format:DVD
"The Bourne Supremecy" is one of those films that I love, and I think is an awesome picture in the most "popcorny" way possible. This film has all the action of a 007 flick with a (somewhat) realistic plotline. I believe that "The Bourne Supremecy" is one of the best of 2004. There are two unforgettable scenes, and both are very similar. I will not give away the film, but I am referring to the two times when Jason Bourne is on the phone with Pamela. Awesome. "Supremecy" is defineatly a sensational movie, and is at least worth a rent.
