This second entry in the trilogy is directed by English director Paul Greengrass. It is well and truly up to the high standard set by the first. I’m glad I saw it on a small screen however, as I find the use of choppy camera movements and editing a bit overwhelming on a large screen. Bourne loses the one good thing that attaches him to the world and his conflicted and knife-edge search for some kind of redemption becomes darker and more solitary. The character study in this film gives the excellently staged action scenes tension and meaning. I enjoyed watching the DVD extras and the sheer enjoyment and enthusiasm of all involved in the project.
