Ok just saw the trailer (was at work before), and yeah it looks very exciting. I hope Franka Potente gets to build on her role a bit, as it seems like she was a bit much of the "damsel in distress" in the first movie, although she had some great scenes once her character became more comfortable with Bourne. Looks like Joan Allen basically takes over Chris Cooper's role from the first movie, and Brian Cox and Julia Stiles have bigger roles this time around.

Hopefully its not the first movie over again. I hope he actually gets a step closer to finding out who he really is this time.

It's reminiscent of the Bond films and how they were "based" on Ian Fleming's books. And with the Bond series in the toilet(from a creative standpoint anyway), the Bourne movies are a welcome replacement.

Hmm, Jason Bourne=James Bond?

Nah, James Bond is still James Bond. Jason Bourne is a nice diversion, but will never replace 007.

Looks solid, like the first one. This was shot on the fly, so I will be cautious.

Joan Allen looks pretty good with long hair IMO. I also hope that Franka Potente doesn't get killed in the first twenty minutes so Jason can get a new love interest either.

Looks good. I was pleasantly surprised by the first one and will definitely catch this one in the theater.

One of the few movies this summer that I'm looking forward to. I was pleasantly surprised by the first one.

I love the scene in the trailer where the police car smashes into the side of him. Very realistic looking!

Too bad the original one-sheet looks like shit. Damn, that's horrible - someone deserves to get fired over this. It makes you appreciate the advance one-sheet even more.

I saw it last night at a pre-screening at the Lincoln Center Loews in NYC.

There were some problems with the screening so they let us in late. The movie was supposed to start at 6:30 but they let us in around 7 and that's when it started. After going to the bathroom, I missed the first 3 minutes or so which were a pretty important 3 minutes.

Neways, I thought that the first one was a lot better than this one. I'd give the first one 3.5 stars and the sequal 2.5 stars.

The second one is a lot shorter (around 90 minutes or so). Like Jeff Wells said, the jittery action sequences were really distracting. There were times that I had no idea what was going on. It was like I was on E or something at a rave. I could see ppl with epilepsy having a seizure during these scenes.

Besides this, the action and fight sequences were top notch esp. the car chase at the end.

There were a few shockers (esp in the beginning) and the way that they ended it definitely left the door open for a third movie.

Oh yeah, I was surprised that Damon was able to lose all the weight that he gained for Stuck On You. He was pretty chunky in that movie but he lost pretty much all that weight. However, he had a lot less muscle than he did during the Bourne Identity.

Cool. I'm looking forward to this movie. For me, it's been a pretty sad summer movie season and this is one of the only highlights.

The first 3 minutes contained nothing important.
Spoiler:
It was just flash backs of his first mission, which were talked about throughout the film. After that was just him running down the beach.


I agree with you on the rating of the two films. The second one was not 90 minutes, but was nearly 115 minutes.

hmm, my bad about the timing. They didn't let us bring camera cell phones into the theater so i didn't know how long it was. We got out of the theater at 8:30 after the credits had ended and since I thought that we started around 7 PM, I thought that the movie was 90 minutes long.

I'm looking forward to seeing it this weekend. Ebert and Roeper seemed to like it also, giving it two thumbs up.

A good film, but Liman's touch with the material was much better. He is deeply missed.

I would love to hear thoughts on the obnoxious use of handheld photography in the film. That's what killed the fun for me. The rapid-fire editing is one thing (booo!), but to turn the image into mush with all the quaking camera? Double booooo!

Saw it last night at a sneak preview here in Seattle, thought it was better than the first, but not as good as I'd hoped. I didn't like the ending (too many "we're going to make MORE sequels" threads dangling, it was like a TV show pilot), and I saw the "twist" coming, ie the fact that
Spoiler:
this was all about the job he kept dreaming about, and I even suspected that the older CIA guy was involved with the whole mess, working with the guys who'd framed him.

Other than that, I thought it was great. Brutal chase scene, and much less eye-rolling-inducing than some other spy movies (read: any recent Bond movie ). The way he interacted with
Spoiler:
the other Treadstone agent, not trusting him for a SECOND,
the way the story didn't have those stupid Bond cliches, like
Spoiler:
the girl didn't get saved at the last minute, the bad guy didn't KNOWINGLY spill his guts to Bourne, the CIA made some mistakes but not the "DUHHH" kind, etc,
all of those made this better than your average spy movie.

Meh, it was a little distracting, but more realistic in some ways, and to me it made the fight scenes seem more real: you got a feeling of the violence without seeing a "staged fight" quite as clearly. The only time I thought it was distracting was at the beginning, where

he was running along the beach; I didn't think the camera bouncing worked for that scene

Ebert's 3-star review here.

Definitely going to this over the weekend.
