The Bourne Supremacy

Frequently bought together
They should have left him alone. Academy Award winner Matt Damon is back as expert assassin Jason Bourne in this stunning, non-stop action hit. Fuelled by awesome fight scenes and some of the most breathtaking chase sequences ever filmed, it's a state-of-the-art espionage thriller that explodes into action and never lets up!
The bonus material is comprised of nine 4-6 minutes featurettes on various aspects of the production, giving insight on how the selection of director Paul Greengrass--with his documentary, impromptu methods--led to the film's much-talked-about style. The most interesting are about how they blow up things (without a computer) and a look at the Go Mobile, a new rig to capture a car chase on film. Even though it's not listed on the packaging, there is a commentary track with the director (uninteresting as it is). Something that is listed on the package, "Explosive Deleted Scenes," is really about 7 minutes of ho-hum expository scenes. Note: the frantic, hand-held camera work in the film makes it hard to view on the small screen, especially on the full-screen edition. --Doug Thomas

As usual the movie is full of high energy action sequences. Bourne was also different from other characters in the genre because he wasn’t working for the government but often against it to expose its crimes.
The Bourne films came out after the James Bond franchise had fallen off and before the arrival of Daniel Craig and pigeon hold in between the six year gap from Mission Impossible 2 to 3. That meant Bourne was the best thing going in terms of the spy/secret agent genre. The chases and gunplay weren’t as epic as the Impossible scenes but they were far better than what 007 was producing at the time. Supremacy was a nice addition to the series.
The Bourne trilogy is a great set of movies, with good characters, plot, and action. The Bourne Supremacy is the second installment and a continuation of the story.
The second in the trilogy is almost as good as the first one. I think the story is good overall, with the introduction of Pamela Landy, tasked as the next person to try and stop Jason Bourne. The second film begins to tie in themes from the first film, regarding Bourne's background and further character development. The action does take a slight backseat, in order to flesh out characters.
Overall, still a great film.

Cold Steel on the Rocks
We Are Cold Steel
With such a handicap, it's surprising that it works so very well - especially since there are few narrative surprises (you can guess the villain long before a trusting sacrificial lamb gives him a crucial piece of information at the cost of his life simply by scanning out the cast list and looking for the first likely typecast suspect to jump out at you). But then the fun of the first film wasn't what it did, but how it did it, particularly the practical ways Bourne evades and eludes his pursuers: the first car chase exists in a credible milieu, constantly thwarted by traffic jams and crowds. The film even manages to find an environment where Joan Allen's eternal humorlessness actually seems appropriate, and it's a genuine surprise that the film's climax is an emotional scene that effectively damns its hero even as he tries to unburden himself of guilt. Impressive stuff despite the problems.
i don`t think it is worth the "upgrade"
