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, Rovi

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.

Time Out
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.

Audience Reviews for The Bourne Supremacy

Even superior to the first movie, this exhilarating sequel boasts a lot of action while it is always exciting to see Bourne use his brains and skills to stay one step ahead of the people who are after him, creating a clever inversion of roles in which the hunters become the prey.

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
