Berardinelli, Internet CriticFull Review Above Average The Bourne Supremacy is a serviceable thriller - no more, no less...Sadly, the cinematic second installment of Robert Ludlum's trilogy falls short of its predecessor in almost every area, except perhaps acting.
Roger EbertFull Review Good But I digress. Thrillers don't exist in a plausible universe. They consist of preposterous situations survived by skill, courage, craft and luck. That Matt Damon is able to bring some poignancy to Jason Bourne makes the process more interesting, because we care more about the character.
USA TodayFull Review Very Good The Bourne saga has firmly established its supremacy among movie spy thrillers. The Bourne Supremacy, the sequel to 2002's The Bourne Identity, is taut, tightly paced and thrilling, with some of the best chase sequences — whether by foot, taxi or Jeep — in recent memory.

Bourne and Marie (FRANKA POTENTE) have maintained their anonymous,
underground existence at the cost of permanence. Fueled by splintered nightmares and
haunted by a past he cannot remember, Bourne moves Marie from city to city, trying to
remain one step ahead of the threat implicit in every unexplained stranger's glance, every
"wrong number" phone call…that at any second, without any warning, he might get
pulled back into the world he hopes he left behind.
When an operative appears in the sleepy village that has been their latest home,
Bourne and Marie collapse their lives and head out. His past at the door, their only
choice is now to run.
But once a line is crossed and the stakes in a new global game of cat-and-mouse
are raised, the Jason Bourne created by Treadstone—the covert, now dismantled
operation that spawned cold-blooded, professional assassins—returns.
Two years ago, Bourne walked away from the deadly world that created him with
a promise of retaliation should anyone attempt contact. Now that that world has indeed
come calling, Bourne intends to keep his word.
