Trivia

In a 2012 BAFTA Screenwriters' Lecture, uncredited screenwriter Brian Helgeland explained that part of Tony Gilroy's initial script was set in the USSR, even though that government had fallen over 10 years earlier. Helgeland was brought on five days before production began and completely rewrote Gilroy's script. Although the studio rejected the new script, they did change the USSR setting. Throughout production, Paul Greengrass would change Gilroy's script with Helgeland's, resulting in the final film. See more »

Greengrass's style for these kinds of movies is just perfect…
21 December 2008 | by (Mexico) – See all my reviews

Bourne is an intelligent guy… He's not Bond who relies on potential gadget…He has that cleverness to think on his feet, improvise, make up a plan, and execute it with unbelievable talent, using nothing but what's in front of him…

Matt Damon has got all the Bourne elements—great actions, really cool ability, a great sense of immaculate timing and a little bit of understanding thrown in too… Demon's instincts are profound where the given character is actually very gloomy…

Jason Bourne—an ex-CIA agent infused with violence, is a man who's killed people in cold blood…And yet you feel he's at war with himself… Jason, is above all, emotionally truthful…That's what director Paul Greengrass have done here…It's that feeling of realism, of truthfulness…

The car chase is magnificent… It is about desperation… Jason has got to get to his young woman's apartment to say sorry… That was his only aim in that moment…

Joan Allen brings that cool, cerebral intelligence to the part of Pamela Landy… She's a worthy opponent for Bourne…

"The Bourne Supremacy" takes us to real places in Europe like Berlin where the East-West conflict was focused; to Moscow, a place of uncertainty and peril and good fortune and to Goa, India's most charming of state capitals…
