A few weeks ago I decided to have myself a 'Bourne' marathon. I had planned on watching all 3 movies on back to back (to back) nights. I watched The Bourne Identity and thought it was great. I am not a fan of action movies, but I thought this was really done well, and I was thoroughly engrossed in Jason Bourne and his attempts to find out who he really was.

The next night I popped in The Bourne Supremacy and it literally bored me to sleep. I tried watching it again the next night but fell asleep again. It just did not have the same vibe as the first. So I just waited a few days and tried again (when I wasn't tired). I managed to get through, but just barely. It lacked a lot of qualities that I liked in the original, and it didn't have the same pacing and overall feel of the first.

I was reluctant to watch The Bourne Ultimatum because I didn't want to be disappointed again. I finally watched it the other night, and I must say that I really enjoyed it. It wasn't until after I watched all 3 movies that I realized that the 2nd installment had a different director. That made all the difference in the world.

Is there any chance for a fourth movie? I'd definitely watch it if it had the same director as the first and third.
