As I have stated before, I am ok with movies not having sequels; sequels tend to disappoint. My biggest example of this is the Matrix series, but I digress.
When The Bourne Identity was over, I was satisfied — I did not need to see another reason to make more. Then I found out that it was actually book one of a series, so that means sequels would be coming soon.
I was disappointed in the second one, mainly due to the shaky-cam process. It hurt my eyes to watch and overall caused me to not recommend the movie. I will say that the effect is not as bad on DVD.
The story is good and so is the pacing. The DVD has the usual extras.
My advice: definitely watch before going to see The Bourne Ultimatum….
