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

Vibrant and vital, Greengrass’s trademark fleeting, darting camerawork forces viewers to scan scenes with Bourne’s eyes, and inhabit his jittery uncertainty of who might swing around a corner or peek from behind a rafter. This film teems with sit-up straight action. Bourne’s anger and several barrels of petrol fuel a car chase to rival “The French Connection” in “Supremacy.”
It helps to know the first movie in which the "hero" is an ex-CIA agent who, having lost his memory, doesn't recall who he is and why he is being hunted down by friend and foe alike. There are a few great car chases scenes in here but some of the other action stretches credibility as there is no way "Bourne" could elude his captors as he did several times here...but it's fun to watch anyway.
The herky-jerky camera style may put some viewers off watching this DVD but after I adjusted to it, I didn't mind. It kind of added to the hectic pace of the story.
Matt Damon is very good in the lead and Brian Cox is an effective "bad guy," easy to dislike. Karl Urban, a new face at the time, also is interesting as the Russian hit man, even though he has only a few lines. The is one of the few films ever to have Moscow as one of the location sites. In fact, this Bourne two-part series so far is a like attravelogue. Here in the sequel, we see India, Italy, Germany and Russia.
Of the three Bourne movies, this is my favorite and I'm hoping that soon it will be available separately on Blu-Ray.
