Trivia

The taxi that Bourne drives during the car chase is a Russian-made Volga 3110. See more »

Goofs

During the car chase seen in the Moscow tunnel between the yellow taxi and the Mercedes SUV, the Mercedes is shown to have a dangling front license plate. In subsequent shots, the license plate is firmly attached and not dangling. The taxi gets hit by the Mercedes SUV sideways, spins out, loses its rear bumper and its trunk opens. Yet, when seen from inside the taxi, the Mercedes clearly misses the taxi, and in subsequent shots the taxis' bumper is intact and the trunk is closed. See more »

Excellent movie with a disappointing touch...
13 February 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I was torn while watching Bourne Supremacy. I'll just go ahead and say this before I mislead. I loved this movie! Unfortunately one key aspect just about dragged this film under the water. The camera was far too unstable. It was obviously done intentionally by design choice, but it was excessively overdone. Through action scenes that had you at the edge of your seat, you'd just come to realize that you were only trying to see what the heck was going on. This made these scenes a little hard to enjoy. But not only was it the action scenes; even during quiet still scenes the camera would always seem to be moving, and eventually was giving me a headache. Just to serve as a warning, it's pretty much like that throughout most of the movie, so brace yourself for an adventure of epileptic proportions.

-- However -- The acting was close to brilliant in my opinion. I don't think the casting for Jason Bourne gets any better than Matt Damon because he fits the part perfectly. The rest of the cast all pretty much played their parts well, so I am pleased to announce that there aren't any exceptionally bad actors or actresses. In addition of the immersive storyline, it created a much enjoyable film. For a sequel, this actually surprised me because I enjoyed this movie as much as I did the first. If you're into action flicks, this definitely will not bore you. If you liked the first movie, then you'll most likely be very pleased with the conclusion.
