The Bourne Supremacy

The Bourne Supremacy (2004)

Directed by: Paul Greengrass
Starring: Matt Damon, Franka Potente, brian Cox, Julia Stiles

Synopsis: Two years ago, Jason Bourne thought he had walked away from his past. But now, his past is about to return. Bourne and Marie have maintained their anonymous, underground existence at the cost of permanence. Fueled by splintered nightmares and haunted by the 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 chance now is 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.

Another rather long synopsis. Hmm.. where to start off?? In the beginning, I was relly hoping for that it won't end up being a revenge story. It kinda did, but it kinda didn't. And that's what makes this movie worth to watch. The first half - more talkative then the first movie and less action. The second half - almost all action, but with important plot twists and takes. I stated that they weren't planning on making a sequal and guess what?? I was right. Well obvious was that it was directed by a different person, but I kinda missed that at first. The thing that gave it away for me was that the first movie ended perfectly, with no questions rised. And the second movie made new questions, on top of the first ones. Like a building of some sorts. What I'm trying to say is that, the story is great again and I'd sails rather smoothly. New problem and a new way to solve it you might say. Ends kinda happy like the first, so we will see what happens in the highly anticipated third movie that got really high ratings and is renounced on of the best movies. Final Verdict?? You wathced the first and enjoyed it. Then you will deffinitely enjoy this. You watched the first and dind't like it. Then you might like or hate the second. Watch 'em to understand. ;)
