Matthew Dunseath’s review published on Letterboxd:
Picking up were Doug Liman left off, Paul Greengrass adds his own shaky stamp in the action of Robert Ludlum's spy saga.
Beginning roughly where 'The Bourne Identity' left us, Jason Bourne is trying to make the best of the life he has in India with Marie (Franke Potente) while avoiding the looming force of the US government, believing his once handlers, once attempted murderers 'Treadstone' to have been disbanded. However when Marie is assassinated by a lone sniper (Karl Urban) and Bourne is framed for an attack on American agents, he once again navigates his way through Europe avoiding his captors and trying to solve the burning question of who he is.
Utilising the shaky cam he cherishes so much, Greengrass uses this and many other trademark methods, such as his sound manipulation to bring us pulse pounding action sequences (Such as a fist fight resulting into a gas explosion involving a magazine and a toaster) that show the killing machine that Bourne was sculpted into. It's never a straightforward ride with Jason bourne and and the clever set pieces really hit this point home.
An enjoyable second instalment that flowed well from the first film, cementing Bourne as one of cinema's greatest action heroes.
