The Bourne Supremacy

All Music Guide - James Christopher Monger
The espionage genre requires a soundtrack as taut as its subject matter, so it came as no surprise when composer John Powell The Bourne Identity The Italian Job signed on to score the second installment of Robert Ludlum's popular Jason Bourne series. Powell expands on the themes from the previous film, adding a bevy of nervous percussion to the already tense staccato string motif that follows Matt Damon as he circumnavigates the globe to clear his name in the sequel, The Bourne Supremacy.

Moby provides the film's closing credits with "Extreme Ways," a track that also appeared in the first film.

    Total Soundtrack?

    I totally enjoyed the movie, quite the alpha male flick, good easy listenin music, but what left an impression on me is the music in the Russian Bar, when the Russian Solder was recalled to finish his job. What is that elusive tune?

    An Engaging Soundtrack That Connects Perfectly With The Moments Within The Movie

    The Bourne Supremacy soundtrack is similar to the previous film, the Bourne Identity. It combines old themes with new themes, of which the strings dominate most. The music is subtle at times, equal to the mood of the movie when Jason Bourne has to be subtle in order to blend into his environment and escape his pursuers. It also involves rattling percussion at times and at other times a deep bass line, which is equal once again to the subtlty and also to the rage or hurried movement of the main character. But whether the theme be made up mostly of a particular orchestral section it truly relates to the movie in a way that fits perfectly whether you a watching the feature film or sinking into your own unique environment just with the accompaniment of this amazingly connected soundtrack.

    Surprisingly Good

    When I saw The Bourne Identity, I recall the soundtrack did not make a strong impression on me. Watching The Bourne Surpremacy could not have proven a more different experience. Within minutes of the movie's start, I started to realize I wanted this soundtrack. My wife and I have both enjoyed this soundtrack and have listened to it more than I would have expected during the past month. This music is cool, intense and smooth. I am very curious to explore some of John Powell's other works now.
