I truly enjoyed 'The Bourne Identity', finding it to be one of the smartest spy and action movies ever made, however after Liman left the follow-up project and was replaced by Paul Greengrass, the sequel was (in my opinion) a helluva better film than the first one. 'The Bourne Supremacy' gives the series a fresh pace with new camerawork that acts almost as a gritty thriller than a pretty action film, with more adrenaline-pumping action scenes and a smartly-conceived plot. The film continues from where its predecessor left off, and follows as Bourne continues to unravel the mystery surrounding his amnesiac troubles. A fantastic follow-up to a strong action film.

I somehow knew the girl would die, but I didn't think it would be so soon into the movie...Karl Urban rocks!

4 stars. Full of action and car chases. Not to often a sequel is better than the original, but they managed it here.

With director Paul Greengrass taking over the franchise, it starts to become even better. This is a sequel that delivers even more thrills. Matt Damon continues to show what the title character can do.

Another solid action film for Damon. Two down, two to go!

Jason Bourne comes back for a second time in this movie that picks up the story pretty much where we left off. Bourne is living in India with his girlfriend Marie and you just know things aren't going to go well for them. Sure enough, they are tucked down by a mean looking Karl Urban as a Russian hitman called Kirill. This movie feels more high-octane than the first with some spectacular chases and sequences and et doesn't sacrifice the intelligence of the plot. It's a real conspiracy thriller that twists and turns as Bourne gradually unravels more secrets from his history. Joan Allen is particularly strong as a supporting actor with credible performances from Julia Stiles and the always dependable Brian Cox. Great fun and spectacular action is always a winning formula and The Bourne Supremacy doesn't put a foot wrong.

Picks up straight after the first and still not got his full memory back he's living peacefully in india until he's framed for murder, Yes the story has been done before but it's by far one of the best with the plot, It focuses more on story telling than the action and what action we got was pretty good especially the end car chase that felt like a GTA chase, It was great but I expected a better ending but apart from that it's a solid sequel, Better plot but let down by the lack of action.

A more than exceptional sequel to a great movie, The Bourne Identity, The Bourne Supremacy directed by Paul Greengrass (Captain Phillips, Green Zone, United 93) is a great stepping stone to the one of the greatest action movies ever made, The Bourne Ultimatum.

A damn good spy thriller.

Almost as well made as its prequel, The Bourne Supremacy is a thrilling action movie in which Matt Damon confirms his abilities to perform the tough guy.
Even though some of its action scenes and car chasings are a bit over the top, the suspance gets you stuck to the screen.

2nd part in the now-5 film Bourne series (of which only 4 have Jason Bourne - Matt Damon - in it), I remember going to see this at the cinema and coming out with a mild case of motion sickness due to the over-reliance on the shaky-cam shots.

That, and being rather shocked at a surprising death relatively early on.

Picking up where "The Bourne Identity" left off, this starts with the amnesiac assassin and his partner hiding out in India, before he is once again caught up in the spy game when he is framed for the murder of 2 CIA agents.

Parts of this are brutal, yes, and I can't help but feel that this laid the template for the more-modern (and, to my eyes, lesser) Bond films than the previous entries in that long-running franchise. Ironic, perhaps, as this character is more like Bond-as-written than Bond-as-on-screen.
August 26, 2016
A great sequel that beats the original in action and is as good with story.

9.9/10 or 5 stars (Near perfect)

Following on from The Bourne Identity, The Bourne Supremacy delivers well choreographed, over the top, action sequences- as well as some development in the characters. While it does well on those fronts, it doesn't ever quite reach the heights of its predecessor in terms of a story.
Verdict: B+
½ August 24, 2016
A fantastic sequel to a fantastic movie. But I have the same problem with this movie that I had with the first one. It just dragged on a little bit too long.
August 23, 2016
Nothing but a 2-hour long chase scene, with authorities on Jason's trail with every turn. Short on slick spy stuff & long on dizzying camera work. 2 thumbs down

With Paul Greengrass stepping in to direct the followup to 'Identity', this could not be more a worthy sequel than what the film actually is. Following on from the original, 'Supremacy' reveals more of the character's abilities to outsmart his opponents no matter where they are, hiding halfway across the world, a building of operatives or simply just standing around and avoid any sense of detection. Greengrass's signatory handheld camera give each action and chase scenes much needed thrills, spills and adrenaline to keep viewers glues to their seats just willing to know where the film's plot will take them next, or who will it involve. Especially when touching upon, mistaken identity or frame-ups, while the film doesn't reveal much about the film's primary cover-up, it does however give audiences a more deeper understanding as to which actions the character takes have direct consequence on him as well as those around or relating to the people/target he's been involved with. The elevated scale and compelling plot make this film hugely better than the original, never losing any sight of motifs or traditions that made the series great.

Anche se non offre niente di nuovo, questo sequel intrattiene offrendo una trama intrigante e scene d'azione ricche d'adrenalina.
