The Bourne Supremacy ★★★★

Paul Greengrass’ shake-tastic camera shenanigans follow our amnesiac hero across several continents as he pieces together his violent past armed with only his fistular weaponry and revenge-fuelled drive.

This sequel marginally improves on the original, including two outstanding chase sequences - one on foot and one behind the wheel - after opening with a rather brave ’shot’ that comes as something of a shock. The background plot involving Hannibal Lector’s dirty CIA money and Russian oil barons is a bit fuzzy, but the overall experience is as seat-gripping and heart-pounding a ride as modern action thrillers get - and there is even better to come!
