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.

From Amazon.co.uk

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

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.

"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.

Format: Blu-ray
'The Bourne Supremacy' is the second, and second best after the debut 'The Bourne Identity', of a trilogy of films ('The Bourne Ultimatum' follows- and the list may expand in the future...) based on the 'Bourne' series of novels by Robert Ludlum, with Matt Damon in the lead role as the CIA operative Jason Bourne. This sequel film dates back to 2004 and maintained the thrilling, more 'gritty' style of action content which debuted in 'Identity' with a no-nonsense, ruthless, approach to the action whilst maintaining a credible plot - all supported by quality production values.

As opposed to 'Identity', the move to Blu-ray for this film (and the next) is far less notable, with the image/audio barely noticeably better than an upscaled DVD (despite an 'upgrade' to DTS); the only real improvement is with the additional extras, to support the fact that by this time all 3 films had been made.

This film starts a couple of years after Jason Bourne has been 'liberated', but he remains haunted by his past and suspicious of external 'intervention' - and rightly so, as the two-stranded storyline involves him responding to being framed for a murder during a CIA operation (to expose a suspected agent who is siphoning off funds) and the related new CIA management who take a serious interest into the background of Bourne and his CIA 'history'.....

The truly notable aspect of this second film of the trilogy is that it is, like the follow-on, directed by Paul Greengrass - someone who was always admired but had not really hit the 'big time'. Exposure courtesy of 'Supremacy' propelled him to the cinematic forefront, where he has stayed with other movies such as the marvellous 'United 93'.

Format: DVD Verified Purchase
The Bourne Supremacy is one of those films where the cast and the plotting are strong enough to survive some extremely bad direction from Paul Greengrass. Former documentarian Greengrass might be overcompensating for what is in essence a pretty commonplace revenge story, but it seems far more likely that he's inadvertently done his best to sabotage his own movie by over-rationalizing each scene without realising that when they're all put together his mixture of shakeycam incomprehensibility (often in scenes where there is no emotional or narrative need for it), redundant shifts of focus, overediting and overly dark photography just makes him come across as an unimaginative Michael Bay wannabe hack rather than creating an illusion of reality or placing the audience in his amnesiac hero's confused shoes. Indeed, he's giving the audience even LESS information and frequently obscuring the action because he's forgotten that just because HE knows what's going on doesn't mean the audience will. On the plus side, this is much less of a problem on the small screen than the big screen, where motion sickness and whiplash were real possibilities, but it's still disappointing considering that one of the great joys of the original was Doug Liman's old-school direction - it was genuinely refreshing to see action scenes where the director was showing you the scene instead of drawing attention to himself after so many years of MTV incomprehensibility. After the problems on the first film, there was no possibility of Liman returning. It's just a shame they couldn't hire a competent director.Read more ›
