After Jason steals the car with the tool that he pushes in the ignition he gets out of the vehicle. When he returns to the car he starts the vehicle. The distinct sound of keys rattling can be heard. So obviously he mysteriously got keys to the vehicle he had stolen. This is because an alternative scene was shot where he approaches the owner of the car and buys it on the spot. See more »

User Reviews

A sequel that holds up.
2 March 2006 | by (London, Ontario) – See all my reviews

In The Bourne Supremacy, Jason Bourne is living a secret life with his girlfriend Marie, still trying to discover who he is. When he is framed for a crime involving the CIA, a hit-man is sent to kill him. This causes Jason Bourne to respond to a previous threat he made...Anybody from his past life that confronted him, he'd get revenge. He sets out to find out what happened and why he's being blamed.

A lot of the principal players return for this sequel, and it's good to see how their characters evolved since the first film. Some new characters are present as well, and they are good additions to the series. Matt Damon is even better as Bourne this time around, seeing as he's comfortable in the role now. I really enjoyed Joan Allen in her role as well.

The movie never gets too boring, and there is a nice blend between the action and the drama. This movie also features one of the best car chases since Bullitt. The only big flaw is the cinematography. The camera whips around so fast in some scenes that you can barely see what's going on. The movie ends with promise of a third installment, and I personally can't wait.
