He warned them to stay away, now they will pay.

bourne-supremacy-dvdPart 2 of the “Bourne Trilogy”, Bourne Supremacy, brings us to Marie and Jason hiding out under new identities. Jason is having regular nightmares and keeps a journal under Marie’s tutorage to find out whom he is and what happened in his past that got him where he is at now. He is finished with being a CIA assassin and had warned the agency’s flunkies to not come after him or they would be sorry.

Guess who shows up at his front door, that’s right an assassin coming to frame him for a whole new conspiracy. In the mix of running and trying to elude the murderer, Marie is killed and Jason heads out on a vow of vengeance. Stopping every ruined and corrupt CIA operative and those who follow, Jason ducks in and out of the shadows and attacks like a stealthy predator. While on his revenge trip, he keeps up with the dreams and remembering his past, coming to realize some truth to what had happened, he confront his demons. Never finding out till the end what his true name is, Jason is still in disbelief if it’s the truth.

There are one or two awesome chase scenes, but that is the largest perk, well the car chases and Matt Damon. Matt is still as handsome and talented as ever; he keeps with the character as well as he did in The Bourne Identity. Guys will love it. Too bad, The Bourne franchise could have been really awesome. Now we have to wait and see if the creators can pull it off in the third installment, of course, check back on Friday and see what us fine folks here at Razorfine has to say. Maybe in the conclusion to the films Jason can fall for another girl and get his stealth on again. I agree, I may have been a little harsh on the second installment, considering so many people enjoyed it more than the first, but I simply didn’t see the intrigue and without the human connection something seemed to be missing. Truth be told, Matt carried the whole film and is the only reason why I gave it 2 instead of 1 razors.
