The Bourne Supremacy [DVD] [2004] <b>DVD</b> ~ Matt Damon

The Bourne Supremacy is one of those rare films. It betters the original and makes it one of the greatest sequels ever made. Sure it doesn't have the grandure of The Godfather Part 2 or The Empire Strikes Back. It is a stunning film that will take you by suprise. Matt Damon was really born to play Bourne. The films momentum shoots along from brilliant sequence to the next. And the ending with the car chase through the streets of Moscow is in there for no real reason at all. The story was all rapped up before Bourne gets in the car but they must have thought who cares. The film holds you in total attention through the twists and turns and then rewards you with an absolutly stunning car… Read more

Marathon Man is an absolute gem of a film. It is like something you catch on TV late at night. It has people you know in it but you don't really understand why you have never heard of this film before and why are they putting it on so late when only the insomniacs can see it. This film is so real but also so fake and so gritty. It takes place in a half dream state and everything in this film is so cool. You have Nazi's living in South America, you have stunning little incerts of an athlete running in the olympics, a great fight in a Paris hotel room, the chase through the streets, the house near the end(which is quite scary) and then a Nazi walking through New York with millions of dollars… Read more

5.0 out of 5 stars Stunning Cinema, 6 Oct 2004
What can you say about this film. arguably one of the high points of the seventies cinema, beginning with this and the Godfather and ending with Apocalypse Now. Some how nobody makes films like this anymore, as this is edgy and dangerous and shot will a semi-documentary style which makes New York look stunning. Modern day thrillers (ie James Bond and Mission Impossible)should take a leaf out of the French Connection and try and follow the trend. Hackman as Popeye Doyle is really playing at the top of his game delivering a career defining performance as well is Roy Schieder. The star though is really the direction and photography, from a man at the top of his creative powers, which lately… Read more
