More Info:
  • Owen Gleiberman

    A conventionally heightened series of escapes and clashes and hide-and-seek gambits, yet the way the film has been made, nothing that happens seems inevitable -- which is to say, anything seems possible. There's a word for that sensation. It's called excitement.

    Entertainment Weekly Full Review
  • Charles Taylor

    As a piece of craft, and with the exception of "Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban," it's miles beyond any studio film this summer. Full Review
  • Manohla Dargis

    Rarely does pop come with such sizzle.

    Los Angeles Times Full Review
  • Stephen Holden

    This is high-speed action realism carried off with the dexterity of a magician pulling a hundred rabbits out of a hat in one graceful gesture. The crowning flourish is an extended car chase through the streets and tunnels of Moscow that ranks as one of the three or four most exciting demolition derbies ever filmed.

    The New York Times Full Review
  • David Edelstein

    The sequel is simply a tour-de-force of thriller filmmaking.

    Slate Full Review
  • Desson Thomson

    Spy movies just got thrilling again.

    Washington Post Full Review
  • Peter Travers

    If you've forgotten the kick you get from watching a globe-trotting, butt-kicking, whiplash-paced action movie done with humor, style and smarts, take a ride with The Bourne Supremacy.

    Rolling Stone Full Review
  • Michael Wilmington

    Close to perfect example of an expertly designed and executed thriller.

    Chicago Tribune Full Review
  • Claudia Puig

    Taut, tightly paced and thrilling, with some of the best chase sequences -- whether by foot, taxi or Jeep -- in recent memory.

    USA Today Full Review
  • Chris Kaltenbach

    Greengrass has a fine sense of pacing, keeping events moving. It's rarely hard to guess what's going to happen next, but events unfold with such gusto that there's barely time to notice that.

    Baltimore Sun Full Review
  • Lawrence Toppman

    Trumping its predecessor with a tauter plot, a lower body count and just as many edge-of-the-seat jolts.

    Charlotte Observer Full Review
  • Sean Axmaker

    Delivers the expected adrenaline-driven thrills with a fresh eye and a refreshing attitude.

    Seattle Post-Intelligencer Full Review
  • Chris Hewitt

    The Bourne Supremacy builds on and exceeds the original, delivering, quite simply, one of the finest big-budget thrillers in years.

    Empire Full Review
  • Scott Tobias

    Goes through its airport-thriller paces with dazzling kinetics and style.

    The A.V. Club Full Review
  • Luke Y. Thompson

    Plot matters more here than spectacle; the film's real climax involves no demolition, but rather two characters in a room quietly discussing devastating events in their past.

    Dallas Observer Full Review
  • Staff (Not credited)

    The action sequences are expert studies in controlled chaos.

    Chicago Reader Full Review
  • Roger Ebert

    That the director, Paul Greengrass, treats the material with gravity and uses good actors in well-written supporting roles elevates the movie above its genre, but not quite out of it.

    Chicago Sun-Times Full Review
  • Rene Rodriguez

    Achieves an assaultive intensity that adds a level of visceral excitement to car chases, mano-a-mano showdowns -- even simple conversations. It's a style that takes some getting used to -- the images flit by at near-subliminal speeds -- but proves tremendously effective.

    Miami Herald Full Review
  • Megan Lehmann

    The strapping Damon's lived-in performance makes us happy to follow Bourne wherever he may go.

    New York Post Full Review
  • Ty Burr

    The way Greengrass lets you feel the violence is impressive. Most movie heroes punch through armies without scraping their knuckles, but Bourne's a believable wreck by midpoint.

    Boston Globe Full Review
  • Leah McLaren

    Directed by Paul Greengrass, the unflinching eye behind "Bloody Sunday," The Bourne Supremacy not only lives up to the promises of the novel by Robert Ludlum, but in many ways manages to improve on the first film.

    The Globe and Mail (Toronto) Full Review
  • Marc Mohan

    Solid summer entertainment set in a recognizably real world.

    Portland Oregonian Full Review
  • Pete Vonder Haar

    Supremacy is, minor quibbles aside, a worthy successor to “The Bourne Identity.”

    Film Threat Full Review
  • Rick Kisonak

    Over all, though, the picture fires on all pistons. The globetrotting's a good time-I can't think of another spy film that's featured as delightful an assortment of seamy international undersides.

    Film Threat Full Review
  • Todd McCarthy

    The action is confusing at first and the hyperventilated editing style at times goes beyond the pale, so pic ultimately emerges as an erratic but not unworthy sequel to its gritty, genre-invigorating predecessor.

    Variety Full Review
  • David Denby

    Putting it mildly, this style of shallow, panting composition isn't the way I’d like movies to go, but, of its kind, The Bourne Supremacy is incredibly skilled--much more exciting than its predecessor.

    The New Yorker Full Review
  • Kimberley Jones

    All herky-jerky camera movements and no pussyfooting around with the interior lives of these characters.

    Austin Chronicle Full Review
  • Carrie Rickey

    Supremacy has thrills, but without Potente's presence, it loses its soul.

    Philadelphia Inquirer Full Review
  • James Berardinelli

    A serviceable thriller - no more, no less.

    ReelViews Full Review
  • Michael Rechtshaffen

    Like its various post-Cold War European locations, the film remains chilly and distant. Every time you feel like you're finally grabbing hold of something involving, the picture once again spins frustratingly out of reach.

    The Hollywood Reporter Full Review
  • Maitland McDonagh

    A refreshing alternative to the hypertrophied spy thrillers in which exaggerated action sequences, over-the-top super-villainy and high-tech gadgetry trump character and plot.

    TV Guide Full Review
  • Joe Donnelly

    In Supremacy, Damon is left to play basically one droning, humorless note, which, unfortunately, he does with his eyes closed.

    L.A. Weekly Full Review
  • Michael Atkinson

    The loss of the first film's hurtling who-am-I? story engine is keenly felt, and too much time is spent observing the characters get on and off planes, trains, and automobiles.

    Village Voice Full Review
  • David Sterritt

    This time it's just chasing, fistfighting, and shooting. A disappointment from the director of "Bloody Sunday."

    Christian Science Monitor Full Review
  • Jami Bernard

    The movie is mostly a series of frenetic clashes, dubious near misses and car chases. It lacks the human interest and snowy splendor of the first movie, directed by Doug Liman.

    New York Daily News Full Review
  • Mick LaSalle

    Almost everything that made "The Bourne Identity" refreshing -- the wit, the irony, the suspense, the novelty of its premise -- is gone in The Bourne Supremacy, and what's left is the spectacle of Matt Damon, with perfect posture and senses primed like a cat, making his way through a routine action thriller.

    San Francisco Chronicle Full Review
  • Aaron Hillis

    What’s missing here is the amnesiac hook that made "The Bourne Identity" such a sleeper hit.

    Premiere Full Review
  • Stephen Hunter

    I had some trouble with the plot, but I'm not the only one -- so did the screenwriter.

    Washington Post Full Review
  • Joe Morgenstern

    Supremacy certainly works on its own terms, but those terms are limiting. It's an entertainment machine about a killing machine.
