    Peter Travers Rolling Stone

    If you've forgotten the kick you get from watching a globe-trotting, butt-kicking, whiplash-paced action movie done with humor, style and smarts, take a ride with The Bourne Supremacy. show more

    Mick LaSalle San Francisco Chronicle

    Almost everything that made "The Bourne Identity" refreshing -- the wit, the irony, the suspense, the novelty of its premise -- is gone in The Bourne Supremacy, and what's left is the spectacle of Matt Damon, with perfect posture and senses primed like a cat, making his way through a routine action thriller. show more

    Claudia Puig USA Today

    Taut, tightly paced and thrilling, with some of the best chase sequences -- whether by foot, taxi or Jeep -- in recent memory. show more

    Joe Morgenstern Wall Street Journal

    Supremacy certainly works on its own terms, but those terms are limiting. It's an entertainment machine about a killing machine. show more

    Supremacy has thrills, but without Potente's presence, it loses its soul. show more

    Jami Bernard New York Daily News

    The movie is mostly a series of frenetic clashes, dubious near misses and car chases. It lacks the human interest and snowy splendor of the first movie, directed by Doug Liman. show more

    Michael Rechtshaffen The Hollywood Reporter

    Like its various post-Cold War European locations, the film remains chilly and distant. Every time you feel like you're finally grabbing hold of something involving, the picture once again spins frustratingly out of reach. show more

    Michael Wilmington Chicago Tribune

    Close to perfect example of an expertly designed and executed thriller. show more

    Chris Kaltenbach Baltimore Sun

    Greengrass has a fine sense of pacing, keeping events moving. It's rarely hard to guess what's going to happen next, but events unfold with such gusto that there's barely time to notice that. show more

    Lawrence Toppman Charlotte Observer

    Trumping its predecessor with a tauter plot, a lower body count and just as many edge-of-the-seat jolts. show more
