Movie Info

The second chapter in the "Bourne Trilogy," based on Robert Ludlum's best-selling espionage novels, reaches the screen in this sequel to the 2002 thriller The Bourne Identity. Jason Bourne (Matt Damon) has abandoned his life as a CIA assassin and has been traveling beneath the agency's radar, eventually reconnecting with Marie Kreutz (Franka Potente), the woman he loves. But Bourne is haunted by vivid dreams and troubling memories of his days as a killer, and he's not certain how much really happened and how much is a product of his imagination. When Bourne is led out of hiding by circumstances beyond his control, he must reconcile his past and present as he struggles to keep Marie out of harm's way and foil an international incident with dangerous consequences. The Bourne Supremacy also features Joan Allen as one of Bourne's superiors, while Julia Stiles and Brian Cox reprise their roles as intelligence agents from the first film. ~ Mark Deming, Rovimore

Critic Reviews for The Bourne Supremacy

All Critics (190) | Top Critics (43)

[Director] Greengrass proves himself equally adept at action, building on the edginess of Doug Liman's original with a feverish handheld camera and frenetic editing.

Top Critic

A minor step above the entertaining (yet underwhelming) The Bourne Identity...

Full Review… | August 12, 2012
Reel Film Reviews

Second in trilogy is a smooth but violent thriller.

Full Review… | December 28, 2010
Common Sense Media

More than adequately serves as a no-nonsense escapist action thriller.

Ozus' World Movie Reviews

As Bourne seeks to uncover his past and bury those who would cross him, director Paul Greengrass masterfully blends sight, sound and silence to do much more than entertain: This film leaves a deep psychological imprint.

Full Review… | September 25, 2010

While not as engaging as "The Bourne Identity," the sequel fills a void in the undernourished spy movie genre.

Audience Reviews for The Bourne Supremacy


Hyper-caffeinated camerawork and editing really detract- Greengrass incapable of holding a shot. Dammit, my eye moves around the frame you don't have to move them for me. Still - a lot of smart fun and Damon is very good.

Bob Stinson

Super Reviewer

It's witty and stylish, especially with the addition of director Paul Greengrass. The Bourne Supremacy picks up where 'Identity' left off with even more action/thrills and a well-made script that personifies this rogue amnesiac super agent. 4/5
