Berardinelli, Internet Critic Full 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 Ebert Full 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 Today Full 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.

D ETAILED S TORYLINE
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.

They should have left him alone.
