Did You Know?


Unlike The Bourne Identity (2002), screenwriter Tony Gilroy read the book this time and claimed that he did a re-imagination, not an adaptation, of the novel. Gilroy wrote an original screenplay using key events and characters from the novel as a framework, though he replaced the traditional Carlos The Jackal-type villain with Kirill. See more »


During the car chase, when Bourne's taxi enters the main stream of traffic and spins you can clearly see the exhaust pipe broken and hanging down. As the car races away it sounds normal and a couple of scenes later it has magically repaired itself. See more »

Get Ready For More Bourne!
23 January 2005 | by (NJ) – See all my reviews

The Bourne Supremacy is the sequel to the successful Bourne Identity spy thriller. This movie, directed by a new director, is given a different yet extremely exciting feel to it. The casting is still great, with Matt Damon bringing a deadpan portrayal to the Bourne character. Hes very good in this role, which commits a great success to the whole of the movie. Supporting players Brian Cox and Julia Styles, along with newcomer Joan Allen, all provide stellar support for Bourne. The action is intense and really well done, and the plot is thrilling and will surprise you quite a bit. The camera-work is extremely fast paced, and overall it has a gritty, captivating style. With all of these elements together, you got one great action thriller that in many cases even surpasses Identity! Movies like this are hard to come by, in todays times with many action pictures that just don't work and become tedious. Ill give this near perfect- *** and 1/2 outs 4 Star's- definitely see The Bourne Identity before this- don't fret: you will be very entertained.
