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

Product Description

Second instalment of the espionage thriller starring Matt Damon, based on the novel by Robert Ludlum. Having abandoned his life as a CIA assassin, Bourne (Damon) has left his violent past behind him and is living a normal life with girlfriend Marie (Franka Potente) under an assumed name. But his plans for a peaceful life are crushed when he narrowly escapes an assassination attempt. Now hunted by an unknown enemy, Bourne must prove once again that he is not an easy target.

4.0 out of 5 stars A gripping, exciting and great sequel! 7 Feb 2005
Format:VHS Tape
The Bourne Identity was a good film - The Bourne Supremacy is even better!
The story picks up in Goa, India, where Jason Bourne (Matt Damon) is having an almost idyllic life with his girlfriend Marie (Franka Potente) who he met whilst escaping from his past life as a government assassin across Europe in the first film. Bourne is still trying to remember who he was/is and always remains on alert to the possibility that his past will eventually catch up with him. Meanwhile, the CIA is on his case about a double murder involving two of their agents, which in turn leads to Bourne returning to Europe to try to uncover the truth about his past role as a high level assassin.
Once again, Matt Damon is totally convincing as Bourne and from his portrayal the viewer can empathise with his desperation, frustration and anger with not knowing who he was and why he cannot ever live a normal life until his questions are answered. The supporting cast (Julia Stiles, Franka Potente, Brian Cox) are all good. However, it is Joan Allen who particularly stands out as Deputy of the CIA tracking Bourne down.
This really is an excellent spy thriller, with plenty of high quality car chases and escapes included too. The storyline is believeable within the context of the world of global espionage, bar the weaker part of the plot involving Abbott (Cox). Nevertheless, the film moves at a great pace and nicley sets up the third installment, The Bourne Ulitimatum.
Based upon The Bourne Supremacy, I eagerly await the next sequel in this thrilling saga.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Action Thriller 8 April 2010
By Mr. Ross Maynard VINE VOICE
"The Bourne Supremacy" is not quite as good as the other two in the series in my view. It lacks the narrative strength of the first film (the best of the series) and it lacks the visceral action (and clever storyline) of the third film - except perhaps in the final car chase. "The Bourne Supremacy" has a fairly simple structure and is essentially a fast-paced chase movie - find Marie's killer. Nevertheless, it is very tense and enjoyable. I had to watch it twice to get the story (someone's stolen money from the CIA and Bourne is framed to distract attention from the real perpetrator), so you need to pay attention throughout. My only complaint is that Bourne (who is described in the first film as "invisible") is so easy to spot: he makes no attempt to disguise his appearance or even wear a hat. Consequently, he ends up getting chased several times after being spotted on the street or on CCTV. However, as thrillers go this is really good - it's just that the other two films in the series are even better !. You do need to watch the first film to get to know the characters before watching this.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good but not as good as the original 29 April 2005
I really enjoyed the Bourne Identity and was really looking forward to the Bourne Supremacy. While it didn't really disappoint, it certainly did not exceed my expectations.
This is a good film - it retains many of the strong elements of the first film: strong, believable performances, lots of tension and plenty of realistic action including some great chase sequences. However, in a number of important ways it does not reach the high standards of the first film. The plot is too similar to the first film and consequently a little predictable; some of the camera work/editing is too choppy and rather annoying. The cast is good and in particular Joan Allen is an excellent addition but Franka Potente is rarely on screen and is sorely missed.

3.0 out of 5 stars OK but a somewhat disappointing sequel 28 Mar 2005
By marcus s VINE VOICE
I am amazed how polarized opinions are on this film; people seem to either love it or hate it. Me, I stand somewhere in the middle. I absolutely loved the Bourne Identity, thought it one of the greatest action movies ever made, but this sequel lacks the gutsy direction and punchiness of the first film. Matt Damon's acting is as fantastic as ever but somehow the viewer doesn't identify or empathise with the hero to the same extent. Maybe because he is now fully aware of his CIA skills his situation becomes less mysterious and surprising. At some points I just felt myself losing interest as the scenarios became rather predictable. In the first movie you were left gasping at the novel ways Bourne finds to escape from each predicament. Here, the solutions to problems seem more conventional and the denouement after the car-chase was a real let-down. For his arch rival to be simply squished to death at the end of a long car chase was for me, an opportunity lost for the ultimate fight sequence. I liked the moral undertone of the plot but it seemed that the more the Director tried to put me in Bourne's place, the more remote I felt from the action - weird but true.

There's a reason the Bourne movies are attracting comparisons to the Bond movies though what seems to interest people more are the differences. As the bloated Bond films give you an oily Hally Berry, Lazer watches and an invisible Aston Martin - The Bourne Supremacy gives you a hysterical sobbing Julia Stiles, a roled up newspaper and a burnt out taxi in some debunked communist state. It's hardly glamourous but it's brutally effective and far more thrilling.
While anyone who's not a shady CIA spy would sound ridiculous calling it 'realistic' the average joe can still find intense satisfaction in the films logicality. What happens when two men are trained to the very peak of physical strength and have mastered completely a devistating martial art? They fight like school boys, that's what, each one's ability cancelling out the other's and they scuffle around an apartment desperatley trying to get the other into some sort of strangle hold, this is where the aforementioned rolled up magazine comes in.
It's also refreshing to see a film pretty much devoid of a Hollywood Love interest, Bourne's previous squeeze Marie is put out of the picture early on and when you think he's about to subject Julia Stiles to a steamy case of Stockholm syndrome, Bourne interrogates her to a point of sheer terror. The closest Bourne comes to any kind of affection is towards Pamela Landy, the very woman who is chasing him.
Acting is uniformly superb, new cast members like Joan Allen and Karl Urban fit right in to this kind of work and returning characters show no sign of getting stale, Brain Cox in particular is a real joy to watch but that's something you come to expect from one of the best actors around.
