Did You Know?

Trivia

In the house in Munich, when Jason Bourne uses the rolled newspaper as a weapon, the martial art he performs is derived from Escrima, an old Philippine martial art, also called Arnis or Kali. This fighting style mainly uses sticks to fight, and in modern times the use of everyday objects is taught, including ball pens (as seen in The Bourne Identity (2002)) and rolled up newspapers. In the film it is combined with Bruce Lee's Jeet Kune Do. See more »

Goofs

When the Berlin SEK unit assaults the hotel Bourne just checked in to, some of the police officers carry Heckler & Koch G36A1 assault rifles (or, more accurately, civilian SL-8 versions of that weapon, mocked up to look like it). None of the German SEK units uses this type of weapon. It wouldn't make sense either, because it's too bulky for close quarters battle. See more »

Alternate Versions

The NBC TV network version does the usual time and content edits. The most obvious change is Abbott's suicide being shown off-screen with a cut to outside the building and the gunshot sound and audio of Pamela Landy's shock being heard, all contrary to the theatrical version which showed it in more intense detail.

Greengrass's style for these kinds of movies is just perfect…
21 December 2008 | by Nazi_Fighter_DavidSee 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…
