Trivia:
In Berlin, after researching Pam Landy's hotel, Bourne drives past a demonstration against globalization by activist organization attac. The posters on the wall behind the man with the flag on the sidewalk read "Die Welt ist keine Ware", which means "The world is not for sale".

Goofs:
Continuity: The last car hit in the tunnel chase scene is a black VW Polo. The following shot, from behind, is actually an earlier scene. The car we see hitting the wall is not the Polo but the first one hit in the tunnel, and Bourne's taxi is not next to the Mercedes but behind it.

Conklin: [voiceover - memories] This is not a drill, soldier. We clear on that? This is a live project. You're a go. Training is over. Training is over.



User Review

Excellent movie with a disappointing touch...

Rating: 7/10

I was torn while watching Bourne Supremacy. I'll just go ahead and say this before I mislead. I loved this movie! Unfortunately one key aspect just about dragged this film under the water. The camera was far too unstable. It was obviously done intentionally by design choice, but it was excessively overdone. Through action scenes that had you at the edge of your seat, you'd just come to realize that you were only trying to see what the heck was going on. This made these scenes a little hard to enjoy. But not only was it the action scenes; even during quiet still scenes the camera would always seem to be moving, and eventually was giving me a headache. Just to serve as a warning, it's pretty much like that throughout most of the movie, so brace yourself for an adventure of epileptic proportions.

-- However -- The acting was close to brilliant in my opinion. I don't think the casting for Jason Bourne gets any better than Matt Damon because he fits the part perfectly. The rest of the cast all pretty much played their parts well, so I am pleased to announce that there aren't any exceptionally bad actors or actresses. In addition of the immersive storyline, it created a much enjoyable film. For a sequel, this actually surprised me because I enjoyed this movie as much as I did the first. If you're into action flicks, this definitely will not bore you. If you liked the first movie, then you'll most likely be very pleased with the conclusion.
