Reviews for The Bourne Supremacy

Review - Bourne Supremacy, The

Jason and Marie are in India. A hit man shows up and tries for Jason but kills Marie. He determines to get the people responsible. He shows his face in Italy and is taken into custody — part of his plan to find out who’s after him. As soon as he has a phone number and name, he escapes and the chase is on.

It develops that Abbott, his control in the Treadstone mission, is about to be exposed as a crook by some files a Russian is trading with another agent. A Russian agent shows up and kills the two men and leaves Bourne’s fingerprints. It was this same agent that killed Marie

But Pamela Landy, who was working on the trade mission, thinks Bourne is responsible. So she’s chasing him while he’s chasing her while Abbot is chasing him. But Bourne stays one step ahead and gets Abbott to confess, then kills the agent at the end of a long chase. Abbott commits suicide when Landy confronts him. In the end, Bourne walks away and Landy lets him.

Much more complicated than that, but to detail it would take pages. It was exciting, a good follow up to the first movie, although I didn’t like the choppy editing that gave me a headache.

Review - Bourne Supremacy, The

It kept my interest, but I didn't find it nearly as thrilling as the first one.
