PSA: The Bourne Supremacy

I've seen at least one early review that contains what I consider to be a major spoiler for The Bourne Supremacy, which opens tomorrow—it's not the ending, but it's something I wouldn't have wanted to know before watching it. I hereby offer to pre-screen reviews for the nervous, since I've been spoiled: feel free to leave URLs in comments.

(Yes, I'm having a weird life lately, why do you ask?)


I'll take one. I'm such a wuss I won't go see any movie, even the g-rated ones, without knowing the ending and any nasty stuff to brace for.

Oh! You *want* to be spoiled? I was offering to tell people which reviews were spoiler-free, at least for this bit that isn't the ending but is still a spoiler.

I can do that, though. This won't make any sense if you haven't seen the first, but cut & paste it into :

You surprise me greatly--I didn't think the previews so much as hinted in this direction, which is partly why I so was displeased at the spoiler.

I forget how many reviews I have watched or read. One said there was a twist 15 minutes into the movie, but was scrupulous about not revealing it. I think this was Ebert and Roeper, and that in this same review, there were clips that revealed that my suspicion that Bourne was

Well, anyway, I hope the movie doesn't suck, because I'm looking forward to seeing it Saturday.

What can I say? You're much better at this than I am.

Thank you!

that cypher thing was extremely cool, by the way.

It's the best compromise I can think of for spoiler protection on LJ, at least in comments. Glad you liked.
