Summer Movie Review

David Haut

The Bourne Supremacy

Matt Damon reprises the role of Jason Bourne in this sequel not entirely based on the Robert Ludlum novel.

The film picks up closely where the first one left off with Bourne and his girlfriend Marie trying to hide from the CIA in India.

When a CIA operation goes wayward and Bourne is framed, he must once again reprise the role of Jason Bourne and clear his name, at least, that’s how the trailer puts it.

With more action and a deeper plot, this sequel is a must-see for fans of the spy genre.

The Terminal

This movie was quite possibly the best movie of the summer.

Tom Hanks plays Viktor Navorski, a Russian immigrant on a mission.

When a civil war in his fictional country of Krakozhia makes his passport invalid, Navorski is forced to live in an airport terminal for months.

Throughout his ordeal he learns English, courts a beautiful flight attendant and makes friends with the entire airport staff.

Directed by Steven Speilberg, this film breaks the Hollywood norm with this unique, wrong place, wrong time film.

Spider-man 2

He’s back. Tobey Maguire plays the web-slinging hero masquerading as the pasty, pathetic photographer, Peter Parker.

This time, Parker struggles with his dual identity and hangs it up as a hero. That is, until Dr. Otto Octavius has a freak accident giving him metal tentacles and a thirst for revenge.

Of course, his grandmother and Mary Jane Watson are caught in the middle, forcing Spider-man to come to the rescue.

If you liked the first, you’ll like the second, but beware of cheesy “everybody needs a

hero scenes.”

Hero

Prepare for an attack – on your senses. Through loud swordplay, exquisite scenery and fast placed fight scenes, Hero will wear out even the most seasoned kung-fu junkies. The movie is exquisite and emotional.

Jet Li plays a nameless warrior on a quest to unite China

after years of civil unrest. The film chronicles the travels of Li’s character as he describes his dominance over three deadly assassins. Hero is told in a fractured manner and is entirely subtitled.
