The strengths are amazing, and it's pretty impressive how thoroughly and successfully the movie rewrote the vocabulary of action cinema.

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

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.

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

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

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.

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.

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.

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.

[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.

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

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

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.

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

March 14, 2005
Yet another of the all reason-defying examples of sequels that are as good as if not better than their earlier films.
