The Bourne Supremacy


There are two different classes of Jason Bourne movies: the Paul Greengrass-directed action classics (SupremacyUltimatum) and the “Other Two” (IdentityLegacy). It really isn’t that Doug Liman’s The Bourne Identity is bad, it’s just that Greengrass helped usher in a new style of chaotically shot and cut actions films with his as-hated-as-it-is-loved “shaky-cam” style (Legacy, on the other hand, is undeniably terrible). However, the one constant that runs through the quality Bourne films is Matt Damon, whose performance as the memory-wiped super assassin proved that he could shake his seemingly typecast “nice guy” persona and mold a character that, for the time, felt distinctly outside of his comfort zone.

In what seems to be a continued disregard for the mental well-being of Jeremy Renner (whose turn as faux-Bourne in the still financially successful Bourne Legacy is merely passable at best), Matt Damon has now said he’d be “open” to reprising the role. Only he has a few stipulations for the studio in order to get him back in the super spy saddle.



Summer has officially just begun yesterday and here is the first Tuesday of the new season. Like any Tuesday, we here at NerdBastards list what came out and recommend if it’s a BUY, RENT, or PASS.
