Critic Reviews for The Bourne Supremacy

All Critics (190) | Top Critics (43) | Fresh (154) | Rotten (36) | DVD (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

Of its kind, The Bourne Supremacy is incredibly skilled -- much more exciting than its predecessor.

August 3, 2004
New Yorker
Top Critic

Another of those incoherent Robert Ludlum spy thrillers with more logistics than logic.

New York Observer
Top Critic

An entertaining, well-constructed spy story (though not as satisfying as the first film -- perhaps because it's not as simple).

Top Critic

The movie is utterly synthetic.

Washington Post
Top Critic

Good enough to make one have faith in certain things again, like spy movies, sequels and the charismatically low-key, quietly lethal movie-star charisma of Matt Damon.

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

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.

July 11, 2010

What more could you ask for in a sequel?

Cinema Crazed

Um filme de espiões para adultos.

Cinema em Cena

A huge leap of faith is required to connect, and many plot details appear to have not been properly thought through.

Full Review… | October 18, 2008
Urban Cinefile

It is a spy film for adults and it avoids over the top pyrotechnics and jokey one-liners, and instead delivers a mature, intelligent thriller.

August 3, 2007

By the end of the film, we've more or less given up trying to figure out how the characters are making their deductions; we just have to take it on faith that somehow everyone knows to go to a specific address in Moscow.

Big Picture Big Sound

A thriller with a brain, a grown up film for grown ups

Apollo Guide

Flashes of color and streaks of movement can make for a striking picture, but only if you can see what's taking place, not to mention if you care about who is in jeopardy.

Full Review… | September 29, 2006

Where it could have descended into a revenge drama, it settles for justice instead -- and not the kind that puts down one's enemies, but the kind that calls for confession, even reconciliation.

September 8, 2006
Christianity Today

Supremacy is, minor quibbles aside, a worthy successor to The Bourne Identity.

Film Threat

Stylish, full throttle, nobody's-pretending-this-is-art summer movie fun.

Film Threat

At times, it's a bit too much like watching the Zapruder film, but... it keeps the audience sharp by forcing them to search for clues and stay focused on the action.

Full Review… | July 25, 2005

The Bourne Supremacy offers both brains and brawn, but without the ability to enjoy any of the action, the film falls to mediocre levels.

Full Review… | July 5, 2005

Yet another of the all reason-defying examples of sequels that are as good as if not better than their earlier films.

Dark Horizons

Improves on the original by leaps and bounds.

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

although often chided for being the lesser of the three, this is still and excellent action film and completely worthy of the franchise. a solid addition to one of the best action franchises of all time.
