The second movie in the franchise sees Jason struggling with his amnesia while hiding in India two years after the first film. He’s making notes of flashbacks and they’re going to come in handy when he’s hunted by the CIA, the people who trained him to be an assassin. Bourne knows secrets, so he’s got to die.
It looks great and takes Jason across the world from India to Russia, to Britain, to New York. Matt’s co-stars Brian Cox, Julia Stiles and others like Karl Urban give him a great platform to do his thing.
Nell Minow at commonsensemedia.com is all praise: “It’s a smooth thriller for grown-ups with chase and action scenes, but the mood is dark. The dialogue is smart but not smart-alecky. Instead of flashy fights, the battles are messy and breathless and brutal. The chase scenes are like extreme bumper cars. And the primary pleasure is not some big triumph, just the fun of seeing smart people outsmarted.”
