Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"[Director] Greengrass proves himself equally adept at action, building on the edginess of Doug Liman's original with a feverish handheld camera and frenetic editing."
‑ , Time Out
"An entertaining, well-constructed spy story (though not as satisfying as the first film -- perhaps because it's not as simple)."
‑ Charles Taylor,
"A minor step above the entertaining (yet underwhelming) The Bourne Identity..."
‑ David Nusair, Reel Film Reviews
"As Bourne seeks to uncover his past and bury those who would cross him, director Paul Greengrass masterfully blends sight, sound and silence to do much more than entertain: This film leaves a deep psychological imprint."
‑ Nick Rogers,
"Um filme de espiões para adultos."
‑ Pablo Villaca, Cinema em Cena
"Of its kind, The Bourne Supremacy is incredibly skilled -- much more exciting than its predecessor."
‑ David Denby, New Yorker
"The movie is utterly synthetic."
‑ Stephen Hunter, Washington Post
"Second in trilogy is a smooth but violent thriller."
‑ Nell Minow, Common Sense Media
"While not as engaging as "The Bourne Identity," the sequel fills a void in the undernourished spy movie genre."
‑ Cole Smithey,
"A huge leap of faith is required to connect, and many plot details appear to have not been properly thought through."
‑ Urban Cinefile Critics, Urban Cinefile
"Another of those incoherent Robert Ludlum spy thrillers with more logistics than logic."
‑ Rex Reed, New York Observer
"Good enough to make one have faith in certain things again, like spy movies, sequels and the charismatically low-key, quietly lethal movie-star charisma of Matt Damon."
‑ Geoff Pevere, Toronto Star
"More than adequately serves as a no-nonsense escapist action thriller."
‑ Dennis Schwartz, Ozus' World Movie Reviews
"What more could you ask for in a sequel?"
‑ Felix Vasquez Jr., Cinema Crazed
"It is a spy film for adults and it avoids over the top pyrotechnics and jokey one-liners, and instead delivers a mature, intelligent thriller."
‑ Beth Accomando,
