Mary and I have been Robert Ludlum fans for years and have read everything he's written. The Bourne series is one of my favs, and I forgave director Dave Liman for completely deviating from Ludlum's original plot in the Bourne Identity because the film was so cool.
Mary and I were excited to go and see the new Bourne film, The Bourne Supremacy, and were a bit dissapointed.
Every single scene was filmed with a hand-held cam and I was just begging inside for the damn camera man to hold still for a moment. Too much camera movement . . . way too much.
The action/fight sequences was a complete blurrrrr and all you saw was, ummm nothing but lots of blurry motion with really cool sound effects.
The car chase sequence was nothing more than cut to this blurry shot of the car rounding a corner, then cut to that blurry shot of a collision . . . than a blurry foot hitting the excellorator, then cut to tires squeeling around another corner . . . you just could not tell where the hell they were going or what they were actually doing . . . oh my garsh!
The movie really had some great potential to be as good as the first, but the cinematography and editing really sucked. They really dropped the ball on this film. How sad. The sound was pretty good, tho.
I give it
