“It's Easy. She's Standing Right Next To You.”
“Once Again This Film Shows That Thriller Movies Do Not Need To Have Explosions And Instead Can Focus On A Realistic Styling To Convey The Message It Intends.”

“They Stole His Identity. Now He Wants It Back.”
“Jason Bourne Is Back For More.”
“I'm Jason Bourne”
“Good Story Line From Beginning But Think They Dragged It Out For Three Films Should Have Been Just 2 Movies As The 2nd Film Dragged On Abit But Overall Not Bad.”
“The Same Edge Of Your Seat Action Delivered In The First Movie As A Newly Discovered Jason Bourne Returns From Hiding To Seek Revenge For The Death Of His Girlfriend. Great Film But A Little Less Original And Intriguing As Its Predecessor.”
“This Flick Is In The Vein Of Spider-Man 2: A Sequel With More Story And Less Action, A Sequel That's Better Than The Original, And A Movie You Definitely Won't Want To Miss.”
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.
Owen Gleiberman - Entertainment Weekly
In the wake of 9/11, this globe-trotting post-cold-war melodrama full of standard cloak-and-dagger intrigue has the reassuring aroma of a home-cooked meal served while riding the world's smoothest roller coaster.
Stephen Holden - New York Times
Claudia Puig - USA Today
Spy movies just got thrilling again.
Desson Thomson - Washington Post
The movie is utterly synthetic.
Stephen Hunter - Washington Post
A terse, tight, impressively smart package.
Ty Burr - Boston Globe
Most of Supremacy is an overedited headache that hardly makes up in frayed nerves what the visuals lack in clarity.
Michael Atkinson - Village Voice
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.
Jami Bernard - New York Daily News
More action-filled and tense than The Bourne Identity.
Eric Harrison - Houston Chronicle
A sequel that reaches a higher plateau than its predecessor.
Philip Wuntch - Dallas Morning News
This admirable franchise should change your idea of what makes a good thriller.
Michael Booth - Denver Post
Of its kind, The Bourne Supremacy is incredibly skilled -- much more exciting than its predecessor.
David Denby - New Yorker
The movie skillfully delivers a series of fights, stalkings, plottings and chases, punctuated by a little brooding.
Roger Ebert - Chicago Sun-Times
Almost as good as its predecessor.
Michael Wilmington - Chicago Tribune
As a video game that propels the viewer through the course, Supremacy is supremely successful. I'm not sure that's enough for a movie narrative.
Carrie Rickey - Philadelphia Inquirer
A worthy successor to the smash original.
Colin Covert - Minneapolis Star Tribune
As thrillers go, Supremacy is indeed supreme.
Tom Long - Detroit News
A solid cloak-and-dagger actioner.
Bill Muller - Arizona Republic
Another of those incoherent Robert Ludlum spy thrillers with more logistics than logic.
Rex Reed - New York Observer
Once again, Damon scores in the title role by never courting audience sympathy and playing his all-American good looks against the hard-shell brutality of the character.
Todd McCarthy - Variety
A classy if over-caffeinated sequel.
Megan Lehmann - New York Post
Bourne's amnesia gimmick is a tired one, but there is a future in spy movies with this sort of blend of action and cynicism.
Roger Moore - Orlando Sentinel
Good enough to make one have faith in certain things again, like spy movies, sequels and the charismatically low-key, quietly lethal movie-star charisma of Matt Damon.
Geoff Pevere - Toronto Star
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.
Leah McLaren - Globe and Mail
An entertaining, well-constructed spy story (though not as satisfying as the first film -- perhaps because it's not as simple).
Charles Taylor - Salon.com
A tour-de-force of thriller filmmaking.
David Edelstein - Slate
Falls short of its predecessor in almost every area, except perhaps acting.
James Berardinelli - ReelViews
Every time you feel like you're finally grabbing hold of something involving, the picture once again spins frustratingly out of reach.
Michael Rechtshaffen - Hollywood Reporter
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.
Peter Travers - Rolling Stone
Brilliantly paced and cut.
Manohla Dargis - Los Angeles Times
A minor step above the entertaining (yet underwhelming) The Bourne Identity...
David Nusair - Reel Film Reviews
Second in trilogy is a smooth but violent thriller.
Nell Minow - Common Sense Media
More than adequately serves as a no-nonsense escapist action thriller.
Dennis Schwartz - Ozus' World Movie Reviews
As Bourne seeks to uncover his past and bury those who would cross him, director Paul Greengrass masterfully blends sight, sound and silence to do much more than entertain: This film leaves a deep psychological imprint.
Nick Rogers - Suite101.com
While not as engaging as "The Bourne Identity," the sequel fills a void in the undernourished spy movie genre.
Cole Smithey - ColeSmithey.com
What more could you ask for in a sequel?
Felix Vasquez Jr. - Cinema Crazed
Um filme de espioes para adultos.
Pablo Villaca - Cinema em Cena
A huge leap of faith is required to connect, and many plot details appear to have not been properly thought through.
Urban Cinefile Critics - Urban Cinefile
It is a spy film for adults and it avoids over the top pyrotechnics and jokey one-liners, and instead delivers a mature, intelligent thriller.
Beth Accomando - KPBS.org
By the end of the film, we've more or less given up trying to figure out how the characters are making their deductions; we just have to take it on faith that somehow everyone knows to go to a specific address in Moscow.
Joe Lozito - Big Picture Big Sound
A thriller with a brain, a grown up film for grown ups
Dan Jardine - Apollo Guide
Flashes of color and streaks of movement can make for a striking picture, but only if you can see what's taking place, not to mention if you care about who is in jeopardy.
Eric Melin - Lawrence.com
Where it could have descended into a revenge drama, it settles for justice instead -- and not the kind that puts down one's enemies, but the kind that calls for confession, even reconciliation.
Peter T. Chattaway - Christianity Today
[Director] Greengrass proves himself equally adept at action, building on the edginess of Doug Liman's original with a feverish handheld camera and frenetic editing.
- Time Out
Supremacy is, minor quibbles aside, a worthy successor to The Bourne Identity.
Pete Vonder Haar - Film Threat
Stylish, full throttle, nobody's-pretending-this-is-art summer movie fun.
- Film Threat
At times, it's a bit too much like watching the Zapruder film, but... it keeps the audience sharp by forcing them to search for clues and stay focused on the action.
Uri Lessing - www.kcactive.com
The Bourne Supremacy offers both brains and brawn, but without the ability to enjoy any of the action, the film falls to mediocre levels.
Jason Zingale - Bullz-Eye.com
Yet another of the all reason-defying examples of sequels that are as good as if not better than their earlier films.
Garth Franklin - Dark Horizons
Improves on the original by leaps and bounds.
Ethan Alter - NYC Film Critic
Tries to top the original by offering two car chases; but they both chop space into blurry, discontinuous fragments...As with the car chases, so with The Bourne Supremacy.
Stuart Klawans - Nation
Stuart Klawans - The Nation
The Bourne Supremacy shows how a spy film should really be done.
Matt McAllister - Future Movies UK
'Un buen thriller, bien realizado y bien actuado que sirve para pasar un par de horas a gusto en la oscuridad de una sala de cine, pero no le pida mas'
Jorge Avila Andrade - Moviola
I'm here to tell you that it didn't disappoint.
Vic Holtreman - ScreenRant
Talk about adrenaline packed into an hour and forty minutes!!
JoBlo - JoBlo's Movie Emporium
Damon makes Bourne a consistent, driven, intelligent, and yet vulnerable hero. It's too bad Academy voters will fail to notice his fantastic performance.
Jeffrey Overstreet - Looking Closer
A first-rate thriller that plays out with the pluck and style of the best James Bond films.
Forrest Hartman - Reno Gazette-Journal

With a rash of movies about resentful operatives or foot soldiers who can't tell whom to fear more, the enemy or their own leaders, they may be telling us something
Prairie Miller - Long Island Press
Bourne es un antiheroe, un hombre incomodo en su rol, un sicario amnesico atormentado por sus demonios.
Luis Martinez - Cinenganos
(T)he best car chase since Bullitt (1968)...With constant tension, this is a thriller at its best.
Tony Medley - tonymedley.com
Brainy, intelligent, emotional filmmaking that just happens to be in the thriller genre.
Rich Cline - Shadows on the Wall
This might work on video while imbibing illegal drugs, however, as it stands...Don't bother.
Eric Lurio - Greenwich Village Gazette
- Sunday Times (Australia)
A roller coaster ride of unglamorous sophistication and artful escapes.
Mark Sells - Oregon Herald
A steady, engrossing thriller.
Brian Orndorf - FilmJerk.com
Matt Damon again pulls off a great mix of inscrutability and vulnerability.
Michael W. Phillips, Jr. - Goatdog's Movies
Matt Damon's Jason Bourne brings new meaning to the word "spy." A fine example of a sequel to surpass the original.
Joe Utichi - FilmFocus
The Bourne Supremacy is something of a double rarity: an exciting, intelligent Hollywood thriller and a worthy sequel to boot.
Matthew Turner - ViewLondon
Bourne himself hovers above mere physical threats, draining this action movie of any urgency.
Martin Scribbs - Low IQ Canadian
Exciting, emotionally layered and brimming with invention.
Chris Hewitt (UK) - Empire Magazine
You can't put a price on a film-maker who still believes stunts should be shot in the street and not the editing suite
James Christopher - Times [UK]
The Bourne Supremacy is a sharp, intelligent thriller that expertly mixes international espionage with a revenge story.
Kevin Carr - 7M Pictures
A brisk, engrossing and intelligent thriller.
Nev Pierce - BBC
Delivers as long as quibblers needing story, character and credibility can set aside their priorities.
Doris Toumarkine - Film Journal International
If you enjoyed the "Bourne Identity" you'll enjoy the "Bourne Supremacy" as much - just don't expect much more than that.
Tony Toscano - Talking Pictures (U.S.)
On balance The Bourne Supremacy is an engaging thriller (if less engaging as a character drama), and, at least in comparison to its predecessor, it reigns supreme.
Anton Bitel - Movie Gazette
conveys a real sense of danger, both emotional and physical
James Kendrick - Q Network Film Desk
Maybe even the great 007 could learn a thing or two from the new kid on the espionage-movie block.
Gerry Shamray - Sun Newspapers of Cleveland
The picture fires on all pistons.
Rick Kisonak - Film Threat
Such an exhilarating thriller ... don't be surprised if you leave the movie sweaty and exhausted from the workout.
Steve Rhodes - Internet Reviews
Hand Paul Greengrass his walking papers ... and tell him to take his hand-held camera with him.
Jonathan R. Perry - Tyler Morning Telegraph (Texas)
The acting was astounding, the plot was superb and the direction nailed it.
Kamal 'The Diva' Larsuel - 3BlackChicks Review
Falls flat on its counter-intelligent face...If I wanted to watch an Olympic steeplechase, I'd wait for the Athens Games.
Thomas Delapa - Boulder Weekly
Like Spider-Man 2, this film works in a very specific genre and seems intent on finding the layers underneath.
Mike McGranaghan - Aisle Seat
[Although] less intriguing than it is skillful, the follow-up to the 2002 hit delivers its characters, thrills and action very efficiently.
Mark Palermo - Coast (Halifax, Nova Scotia)
A cinematic page-turner.
Susan Tavernetti - Palo Alto Weekly
Not a perfect film, but it provides enough excitement and intrigue to keep the popcorn crowds well entertained and glued to their seats for future Bourne adventures.
Jeff Otto - IGN Movies
The Bourne Supremacy offers cool thrills and explosive action.
Lori Hoffman - Atlantic City Weekly
Does what it promises -- gives great tense drama and action. However, jerky camera work is somewhat annoying.
Ross Anthony - Hollywood Report Card
The movie culminates with a sloppily edited car chase that goes on for so long that I had to be reminded: Was Matt Damon playing Jason Bourne or Sheriff Buford T. Justice?
Matt Brunson - Creative Loafing
The pacing is lively, yet still easy to follow
Marty Mapes - Movie Habit
In a summer drenched in CGI-effect extravaganzas, it's easy to forgive The Bourne Supremacy its occasional transparent plot device.
Ken Hanke - Mountain Xpress (Asheville, NC)
If The Fugitive starred an invincible super-spy and was shot with a broken Steadicam...you'd have this half-decent, hyperactively edited, arms-length chase thriller.
Aaron Hillis - Premiere Magazine
This is a complex, grown up thriller that's rich in its gritty detail and nearly flawless in its stuntwork.
David Cornelius - eFilmCritic.com
The car chase near the end of the film is one of most exciting shots ever.
Vince Koehler - Entertainment Spectrum
Much like Spider-Man 2, this action sequel...essentially delivers more of exactly what you'd expect, along with a blatant hook for the inevitable part three.
Luke Y. Thompson - New Times
Energetic, edgy and intelligent, film is a worthy follow-up to its exceptional 2002 predecessor.
Angela Baldassarre - Sympatico.ca
