Movie review: The Bourne Supremacy

Thursday, October 14, 2004

It's been awhile since I've been to the movies. The last one was Alien vs Predator, which was way below my expectation. Anyways, here's my take on The Bourne Supremacy.

This movie is the sequel to the successful, 2002's The Bourne Identity. Matt Damon returns as trained assassin Jason Bourne. The story begins when Bourne is drawn back into the operative's world of turncoats after being attacked by a no-nonsense assassin and framed for the murder of two men who were under the surveillance of the CIA in Berlin. Playing cat-and-mouse with agents, Bourne races to work out what connects him to a long-dead Russian reformist politician named Neski.

The plot can be quite confusing in the begining, but as the movie progress, the pieces of the jigsaw falls into place. The thing is, this sequel ties in close with the first movie, names of characters and events which are rather essential to the plot of this movie. I had a hard time trying to remember who is who and what happened when. The director should have slot in some flashbacks to bring the audience up to speed.

This espionage thriller has a fair bit of everything, from romance to betrayal to car chase scenes. Damon potrays his character well, very intense and yet giving an impression that he is full of remorse from his dark past that he's trying to remember. This movie has a compelling use of exotic worldwide locations from Goa to Berlin, Naples to London, Langley to Amsterdam and to New York. Cool!!

Overall, an entertaining movies with an interesting plot and scenic locations.

I kinda preferred the first bourne movie but this was ok. amazing the russian secret police people drive a RM850,000+ cars while the normal cops are the total opposite ;)

Cheers!!! :D
it seemed to me that the cameramen were drunk. and then drank too much coffee in attempts to sober up. five minutes before filming. during an earthquake.
Yeah, the secret service with their flashy beemer seem unrealistic. Hahaha.. the best thing is, they drive in a line. :P
