Greengrass's style for these kinds of movies is just perfect
Bourne is an intelligent guy He's not Bond who relies on potential gadget He has that cleverness to think on his feet, improvise, make up a plan, and execute it with unbelievable talent, using nothing but what's in front of him
Matt Damon has got all the Bourne elementsgreat actions, really cool ability, a great sense of immaculate timing and a little bit of understanding thrown in too Demon's instincts are profound where the given character is actually very gloomy
Jason Bournean ex-CIA agent infused with violence, is a man who's killed people in cold blood And yet you feel he's at war with himself Jason, is above all, emotionally truthful That's what director Paul Greengrass have done here It's that feeling of realism, of truthfulness
The car chase is magnificent It is about desperation Jason has got to get to his young woman's apartment to say sorry That was his only aim in that moment
Joan Allen brings that cool, cerebral intelligence to the part of Pamela Landy She's a worthy opponent for Bourne
"The Bourne Supremacy" takes us to real places in Europe like Berlin where the East-West conflict was focused; to Moscow, a place of uncertainty and peril and good fortune and to Goa, India's most charming of state capitals
