Good but not as good as the original,
This review is from: The Bourne Supremacy [DVD]  (DVD)
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.
