What Parents Need to Know
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.

- Abbott says, "Conklin had these guys wound so tight they had to bust." What are the risks of training an operative like Bourne? Or of not having one?
