Goofs

After Bourne leaves the Hotel Brecker, he enters the station "Zoologischer Garten", which is actually next to the supposed address of the hotel. After passing through the hall he leaves the building and we see a bridge over a river. "Zoologischer Garten" isn't near a river - the rest of the scene is shot at station "Friedrichstrasse", 4 train stops away. See more »

Spy Movies Haven't Been This Cool Since The '60s
11 February 2005 | by (Milwaukee, Wisconsin) – See all my reviews

THE BOURNE SUPREMACY (3+ outta 5 stars) Nifty follow-up to "The Bourne Identity", one of the best action-thrillers to come out in recent years. Even though these movies don't skimp on excitement they also provide plenty of story and character development so that you don't feel you're being bombarded with one idiotic action sequence after another. The storyline isn't quite as gripping as the first... at times it seems to be just repeating itself... but ultimately the movie proves itself to be a worthy successor, thanks to the performances (Matt Damon as Bourne, Brian Cox as the head of a super-secret US spy agency... and the addition of Joan Allen as a determined investigator determined to track down and neutralize Bourne). Franka Potente doesn't have as much to do this time around... but Julia Stiles gets one especially intense scene that shows off her acting skills to the max. Yes, when you get right down to it the movie has a sense of "been there, done that" about it... but not very often are movies of this type done with this kind of skill and dedication... spy movies haven't been this cool since the '60s.
