The Bourne Supremacy DVD Review
SRP: £29.98

Picture

Presented in 2.35:1 anamorphic widescreen, Universal manages to give us an excellent transfer. Fine detail and sharpness is very good for the majority of the movie with only long panning shots suffering from softness now and again. Colours are natural and well saturated with excellent shadow detail, Flesh tones remain realistic throughout and there are very few flaws seen. Grain is used throughout to varying degrees which is deliberate, flashbacks seeing the most use of the technique. Edge enhancement is thankfully only seen now and again and is certainly not as big a problem than the faults found on the original films DVD release.

Sound

If you are after an aggressive action fest of a soundtrack, you may well be disappointed with Supremacy. But don't let that put you off as this sound mix has plenty to offer. Using the surrounds to the full throughout the action set pieces the more subtle effects work just as well during the more quiet moments. Dialogue is rich and easy to follow and everything sounds dynamic with the fantastic score sounding enveloping and effective. The only thing missing is the OTT aggressive action mix, but lets face it the mix here is just as effective.

Extras

For a single disc release Supremacy has quite a collection of extras, squeezing as many extras as possible onto the disc. Most of the featurettes run for about 5 or 6 minutes each and cover the casting, Visual style, blowing things up, stunt driving, the bridge sequence, fight training, the score and the locations. Rounding off is a director's commentary track which is informative if a little slow in parts and a cast and crew biography feature. The only thing missing is the trailer!
The Bourne Supremacy
Whilst not as strong as the original movie, Supremacy offers a smart action packed sequel with good performances from the leads and entertaining action sequences. Recommended.
