Last Tuesday I went with the Suchomskis to see "The Bourne Supremacy." Actually, it turns out only Tim was allowed to see it, so Chris, Moe, Pete, Mary, and Poncho went to see "I, Robot."

"The Bourne Supremacy" was quite as good as I thought it would be, the plot was compelling, the characters moving, and the action scenes were extremely realistic, with none of the obvious special effects that other action films usually use.
Some of the coolest scenes were when Bourne (Matt Damon) called people on a cell phone, and talked to them, while they were unaware he was viewing them through the high-powered lens of his sniper rifle. When he said something that let them know he was there, their reaction was as expected...fear, shock, surprise, and confusion all mixed together.
The car chase scene was better thant eh first one too, which I didn't think was possible. A Taxicab against two souped-up Police cars and a Mercededs SUV, and who wins? By his flawless (though not for the car) driving, Damon manages to pull off one of the best chase scenes I've ever seen.
The ending was unexpected, and lent a moral depth to the movie and Damon's character.
