A lesson to other sequels/franchises/trilogies
on October 13, 2007
This is an immensely solid followup to an already strong series. The caliber of actors they've been able to bring into this series is amazing, and story and character are never sacrificed for action. And the writers really make an effort to go back and reference the earlier films. Specifically 'operation black briar' which was briefly mentioned at the end of film one, and also Bourne quoting something Clive Owen said to him in the first film.
Even the best of film series tend to fall apart by their third installment (I'm looking at you Spiderman and X-men) but this film was a pleasent surprise that lived up to, continued and from the looks of it concluded the Bourne saga.
