This review is from: The Bourne Supremacy  [DVD] (DVD)The Bourne Supremacy is an exceptional thriller that is a sequel to 2002's The Bourne Identity. With Paul Greengrass taking over as director, The Bourne Supremacy still has a soft spot for traumatized children and interrupted romance, but the movie is structured so differently that it draws power to them rather than giving in to them. The Bourne Supremacy is such a breathless thriller, that amidst a sharp emotional exchange, it manages to sustain its deep feeling across an improbable amount of mayhem and violence. At the beginning of the film, Jason Bourne (Matt Damon) pulls on all of our heartstrings, as he has to cope with the death of his partner, Marie (Franke Potente), performing this brilliantly. There are many unfortunate lapses throughout The Bourne Supremacy for Jason, and this high-paced, realistic movie will keep you hanging on until the very last minute. The end of the film, and the main climax, involves a high speed car chase through the city of Moscow. This film is a fantastic sequel, and it's guaranteed that you will want to watch this again and again and never get tired of it. Well done Paul Greengrass. A success? Certainly.
