Two years later, Jason Bourne (Matt Damon) and his girlfriend Marie (Franka Potente) begin a new life in Goa, India. But when an assassination attempt on Bourne goes wrong, Bourne must re-enter the life he wanted to leave behind, in order to find out why they are still after him.


Making a sequel worthy of a good film is not an easy task, but Paul Greengrass did it, and the result is great. The Bourne Supremacy is a fantastic film, more thrilling and interesting, and definitely superior to its predecessor. It offers really well-done car chases, slightly confused due the use of a hand-held camera, great martial arts battles, and a scope that goes from India to Naples, from Berlin to Moscow.
Matt Damon's portrayal of the new Jason Bourne, gloomy and more tormented by his past, is impressive. Brian Cox is an effective villain. Karl Urban is great although he has only a few lines. Joan Allen gives a really good performance.

  1. I really like this one, but not as much as the first or the third. It's a fantastic trilogy...yup, I'm totally ignoring that one with Jeremy Renner.

    1. I haven't seen the third yet, but I'm sure it is amazing. I'm also ignoring the one with Renner
