You can't put a price on a film-maker who still believes stunts should be shot in the street and not the editing suite

Delivers as long as quibblers needing story, character and credibility can set aside their priorities.

If you enjoyed the "Bourne Identity" you'll enjoy the "Bourne Supremacy" as much - just don't expect much more than that.

On balance The Bourne Supremacy is an engaging thriller (if less engaging as a character drama), and, at least in comparison to its predecessor, it reigns supreme.

Maybe even the great 007 could learn a thing or two from the new kid on the espionage-movie block.

Such an exhilarating thriller ... don't be surprised if you leave the movie sweaty and exhausted from the workout.

Falls flat on its counter-intelligent face...If I wanted to watch an Olympic steeplechase, I'd wait for the Athens Games.

[Although] less intriguing than it is skillful, the follow-up to the 2002 hit delivers its characters, thrills and action very efficiently.

Like Spider-Man 2, this film works in a very specific genre and seems intent on finding the layers underneath.

Does what it promises -- gives great tense drama and action. However, jerky camera work is somewhat annoying.

The movie culminates with a sloppily edited car chase that goes on for so long that I had to be reminded: Was Matt Damon playing Jason Bourne or Sheriff Buford T. Justice?

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