[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.
August 12, 2004
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
August 10, 2004
A brisk, engrossing and intelligent thriller.
August 3, 2004
Of its kind, The Bourne Supremacy is incredibly skilled -- much more exciting than its predecessor.

Another of those incoherent Robert Ludlum spy thrillers with more logistics than logic.
July 24, 2004
An entertaining, well-constructed spy story (though not as satisfying as the first film -- perhaps because it's not as simple).
July 23, 2004
The movie is utterly synthetic.
July 23, 2004
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.
July 23, 2004
A tour-de-force of thriller filmmaking.
July 23, 2004
Almost everything that made The Bourne Identity refreshing -- the wit, the irony, the suspense, the novelty of its premise -- is gone.
July 23, 2004
Bourne's amnesia gimmick is a tired one, but there is a future in spy movies with this sort of blend of action and cynicism.
July 23, 2004
While the movie has a higher IQ than the average summer action blitz, it underperforms as a thrill-dispenser.
July 23, 2004
The movie is mostly a series of frenetic clashes, dubious near misses and car chases. It lacks the human interest and snowy splendor of the first movie.
July 23, 2004
The movie skillfully delivers a series of fights, stalkings, plottings and chases, punctuated by a little brooding.
July 23, 2004
A rare breed of action flick -- one that doesn't take human life for granted.
July 23, 2004
Just as thrilling, edgy and entertaining as the first installment.
July 23, 2004
A terse, tight, impressively smart package.
July 23, 2004
A solid cloak-and-dagger actioner.
July 23, 2004
The Bourne Supremacy not only lives up to the promises of the novel by Robert Ludlum, but in many ways manages to improve on the first film.
July 23, 2004
As a video game that propels the viewer through the course, Supremacy is supremely successful. I'm not sure that's enough for a movie narrative.
