The Bounre Supremacy Review.

Thoughts: The Bourne Supremacy takes place two years after the events of The Bourne Identity, but I will not give away any spoilers for either the film. The movie opens and within 10 minutes there is a very unexpected plot twist and impressive car chase, which sets up well for the rest of the movie. New director Paul Greengrass, offers a different style of action in movie. Some of the movie had a little too much shaky cam, which can be distracting at time, but overall it adds to the intensity of the action. Although he would much improve in the next installment of the franchise The Bourne Ultimatum, which I will be reviewing tomorrow. The Bourne Supremacy dialogue has long sequences without any dialogue, while it does add to plot some, those parts tend to drag. Also the movie is a little rushed just to set up for the next movie, which it does well in that aspect, and some of the intrigue that was present in The Bourne Identity is not here in The Supremacy. However, the last 20 minutes of the film is riveting and intense, and ending perfectly yet not like you would expect from an action movie. Something new that was added to Supremacy is how Bourne out smarts the CIA, which is great and suspenseful to watch. Again Jason Bourne is a great character still trying to discover his true identity and that overall theme works very in the movie.

Genre: Action, Espionage, Thriller, Suspense, Spy,

The Good: One of the best car chases ever (possibly the best), Great action, Shocking plot twist in the beginning, Fantastic ending,

The Bad: A little too rushed, Somewhat dull dialogue,

Plot: The Bourne Supremacy takes place two years after the end of the The Bourne Identity. We can't tell you the plot for the movie because it will spoil The Bourne Identity

Plot: 8.4/10- The Bourne Supremacy's plot is very good and sets up well for the next movie but some of the other aspects did not worked as well as the previous movie.

Action: 9.1/10- Despite some over use of shaky cam during the hand-to-hand fight scenes, the car chase is fantastic. One of the best ever filmed.

Acting: 8.3/10- Matt Damon was great again but there really was not as much acting except for Damon as in the previous movies.

Special effects: N/A- Good stunt driving and hand-to-hand fighting but no real special effects.

Soundtrack: 8.4/10- As with The Bounre Identity, the score adds an eerie tone to the film, which is very effective.

Comedy: N/A

Would I Watch This Again: When I re-watch The Bounre Trilogy again, I will obviously re-watch the movie.

Overall: 8.6/10- Although it might not be quite as good as The Bourne Identity, The Bounre Supremacy is a solid sequel.

Closing comments: Despite a few more flaws than the previous entry, The Bourne Supremacy offers some great action and thrills that should please fans.
