Greengrass steps up a gear in this manic Bourne sequel and the trademark testosterone-fuelled action takes centre stage. The plot is simple but still unrefined, Bourne makes Bond look like a deluded posh apprentice. Everything is a pretext to throw an explosive car chase or a deadly fight. A monkey on caffeine holds the camera for most of the action and the result is sheer mayhem.
Greengrass took the reins on the second entry in the series and certainly put story first, however just not as consistently exciting as the first entry. Supporting players well cast especially Joan Allen and Julia Stiles. Fight sequence between Damon and Csokas was one of the best choreographed sequences to come along in ages. Well shot by dp Wood but Greengrass' stamp was all over this one coming off 'United 93".
