Re: Bourne featurette

Don't get too worked up Paula. Its a featurette for a car chase that's like 2 mins long but the action scenes are just as important as the story and since the bourne franchise has raised the bar for action cinema and spy movies in general, its important that it continues that trend and continue to wow us in ways we haven't seen before. The philosophy should always be to outdo the last film in terms of action and from what i've been hearing, this film is the most action packed installment yet.

Re: Bourne featurette

I can't speak for her, but I think what Paula is getting at is what I also feel. We trust Matt to invest himself in films with scripts that carry important meaning. Sure, YAY for the car chases--God knows the Bourne series has outdone the iconic French Connection chase, YAY for the expert fighting, YAY for the stunts, but I wouldn't care a whit for all that except that they enhance Matt and Paul's worldview within the film and the deep character and his purpose that Matt has created. There are a lot of action flicks I won't bother with. Bourne, however, has to have a Matt-centered involving plot that sweeps me along with him. The rest is in support of that. The films are successful because Paul and Matt can find the effective balance.
