The Bourne Supremacy Reviews
Not as good as the first but still has some good action.
A terrific spy thriller that manages a 'real-world' feeling, though I would honestly call it the weakest of the three.
Well worth a look.
Although some of the plot points are kind of convoluted, The Bourne Supremacy is a thrilling and enjoyable sequel that improves on the original by a lot.
(Full review coming soon)
However, once again, this Bourne film leaves a lot of loose ends. It doesn't fully explain why Bourne is being framed. Are they trying to draw him out? Are they using him because he's expendable? I don't know. Additionally the motivations of Abbott, Kirill, and Gretkov are not fully fleshed out.
Much like "The Bourne Identity", these problems are not enough to bring "The Bourne Supremacy" down. "The Bourne Supremacy" is an excellent film, but I am still waiting for a Bourne film that answers more questions than it raises.
I don't know why I can't fully get into this franchise. I can't find anything particularly critical, it just doesn't hold my interest. The action sequences feel generic, the plot points don't seem to hold any weight, and the film takes itself too seriously.
There are some good points. Information is slowly given to us that helps to understand a bit more about what Jason Bourne is about. The information comes out awfully slowly, though. The ending of the film seems odd; perhaps I missed something (it is a very visual film, and I am not a visual learner).
There is a startling lack of humour as well. Not even quippy one-liners. No wonder Matt Damon looks so dour all the time. This is what separates Bourne films from better franchises like Mission: Impossible and Terminator.
Many people love these films, and that's awesome. If you want action, it is certainly there. Just don't expect anything revolutionary.
Major seasickness warning
Whoever decided to fake shake the camera though the whole film is an idiot
