Matt Damon returns as amnesiac assassin Jason Bourne in this fast-paced follow-up to 2002's THE BOURNE IDENTITY. Forced out of hiding as the result of an attempt on his life, Bourne fulfills his earlier promise to wreak vengeance on his former CIA employers, some of whom may be in league with murderous Russians. Brian Cox and Joan Allen are both great as warring agency chiefs convinced Bourne orchestrated the murder of two of their own in a deal gone bad. Thanks to tense, gritty direction by Paul Greengrass (BLOODY SUNDAY), the plot stays tight, the characters believable, and suspense and thrills flow steady. Moody photography enhances the urban European locations, which--combined with handheld camerawork and fast editing--keeps the action realistic and CGI-free. Vividly capturing the fatalist flavor of Robert Ludlum's original novel, this is "globalism noir" at its finest. Franka Potente and Julia Stiles are back from the original, and the always dependable Marton Csokas shows up as one of Bourne's dead...

   My only problem with the two Bourne movies has been that they seem to be too short and scream for sequels. Matt Damon is excellent and convincing as the cool Jason Bourne, trained by a covert government agency as the ultimate assassin.       Jason has retired with his girlfriend from the first movie and is leading a quiet life in India. All of a sudden there is a bombing to cover up some covert crime and the bombers have placed Jason Bourne's fingerprint at the scene. …

Crisply directed by Paul Greengrass and starring Matt Damon as Jason Bourne, this film offers almost constant high-speed action. As in The Bourne Identity, the young protagonist suffers from amnesia. His nightmares, hallucinations, and mini-epiphanies have yet to reveal all that he wants to know about himself and especially his past. He does know, however, that he was once involved as a highly-skilled assassin in a "black ops" project (code name Treadstone) sponsored by the C.I.A. As this sequel …

THE BOURNE SUPREMACY is a super DVD transfer action flick that is meant to hold you in suspense for the duration of the movie so that the viewer can forget the heat of the news outside And it works! Director Paul Greengrass has dialed all of the cameras' and actors' meters to breakneck speed, and while the big screen does at times seem overwhelmed by all the blitzkrieg action, the characters appear so involved that the film is all of a piece. Reprising their roles are Matt Damon (who handles this …

Why people hate The Bourne Supremacy I have no idea but what I loved about this sequel was they got rid of a very weak piece of the cast right in the beginning. You break your neck to see this because you want to know the rest of the story and who Jason Bourne really is but when you get to the end to find all that out and well that's all you find out.     You don't get a plot twist or anything to make your jaw drop; you just get a plain old mediocre answer to a plain question. …

Pros: Damon, Allen, and a good plot.     Cons: Camera work is off, may confuse some.     The Bottom Line: A solid film that will delight fans of the series.     Plot Details: This opinion reveals minor details about the movie''s plot. Two years have passed since Jason Bourne (Matt Damon) attempted to solve the mystery behind his amnesia and slipped into hiding in an attempt to leave his past as a spy/assassin behind.      …
