Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that The Bourne Supremacy, the second entry in the Matt Damon Bourne trilogy is filled with the same intense, dark, life-and-death struggles as the others. Gunfire, explosions, tense chases, bloody fights, narrow escapes, and disturbing flashbacks contribute to the steady suspense and action. Its fast pace and pulsing music keep the viewer on edge from beginning to end. The filmmakers keep the emotional stakes high as well, so there are some profoundly sad moments. There is occasional, mostly mild, cursing, and a brief scene shows a partially clothed pole dancer in a club.
One revealing bikini top is seen, along with one brief shot of a pole dancer.
The frequent hard-edged action results in multiple deaths: by gunfire, drowning, strangling, explosion, and savage hand-to-hand combat. The bloody aftermath of several of the deaths is clearly visible and disturbing. Likable characters are repeatedly at risk throughout, narrowly escaping assault rifles, knives, bombs, and deadly extended car chases/crashes. There's one suicide.
Scattered swearing and harsh language: "crap," "hell," "damn," "for Christ's sake," son-of-a-bitch," "s--t," "a--hole," and one use of "f--k."
Good ultimately triumphs over evil, but not necessarily before leaving tragedy in its wake. Despite the enormity of sorrow and anger generated by his enemies, the hero's actions prove that a human being can stay true to his values even in the worst circumstances.
Westin Hotels, Bosch, Lays Potato Chips, and lots of Russian and German signage for shops, products, etc.
Drugs / Tobacco /
Alcoholic beverages are consumed in a few scenes: one in which the hero pretends to be drunk; another in which a character takes a strong drink just before he kills himself.
