The Bourne Supremacy Reviews
Firstly, I was a bit disappointed when I found out that THE BOURNE SUPREMACY does not follow the real story by Robert Ludlum. The director decided to take a new approach, hence a new story arc.
I also thought this movie had less suspense then the first. The first movie gripped me because we have to find out Jason Bourne's identity, and slowly realize that he has had special training in things he should not know. Doug Liman creates his movie in a certain way so that the spectators can piece the puzzle together. It was a little mysterious, I guess. This movie fails on that note, too. He wants to find his wife's killer, even though we all know it was ordered by a high-ranking person in the CIA. I didn't get the same suspenseful sensation as before because I knew who Jason Bourne was working with.
But, to end this review on a positive tone, I want to praise the director's editing. Paul Greengrass is the only person out there who knows how to use quick-cut editing to make his action scenes more brutal, realistic and fast-paced, so I was pleased with that. Matt Damon once again gives 200% in his role, and I thought that Joan Allen was superbe in this movie.
So, although I was a little disappointed, THE BOURNE SUPREMACY is still an above-average action/revenge thriller.
That RT critics consensus is hilarious, though. "A well-maded sequel that delivers the thrills." LMAO WHO PROOFREAD THAT ONE?
Mejor que la anterior, con una trama más sólida, muy bien trabajado, con un magnífico Matt Damon que encaja muy bien con su personaje.
1)The loss of Franka Potente as Marie, a sounding board for Bourne show his soul to, giving us insight into his motivations and trepidations. Without her, he's just another silent assassin.
2) Paul Greengrass is half the action director that Douglas Lima was, employing a supremely disorienting style of handheld cameras, confusing the audience rather than engaging them.
Despite this bad form, the highlight of the film is a high impact car chase through the busy streets of a Russian city.
