Did You Know?
In Berlin, after researching Pam Landy's hotel, Bourne drives past a demonstration against globalization by activist organization attac. The posters on the wall behind the man with the flag on the sidewalk read "Die Welt ist keine Ware", which means "The world is not for sale".
The last car hit in the tunnel chase scene is a black VW Polo. The following shot, from behind, is actually an earlier scene. The car we see hitting the wall is not the Polo but the first one hit in the tunnel, and Bourne's taxi is not next to the Mercedes but behind it.

This is not a drill, soldier. We clear on that? This is a live project. You're a go. Training is over. Training is over.
Excellent movie with a disappointing touch…
I was torn while watching Bourne Supremacy. I'll just go ahead and say
this before I mislead. I loved this movie! Unfortunately one key aspect
just about dragged this film under the water. The camera was far too
unstable. It was obviously done intentionally by design choice, but it
was excessively overdone. Through action scenes that had you at the
edge of your seat, you'd just come to realize that you were only trying
to see what the heck was going on. This made these scenes a little hard
to enjoy. But not only was it the action scenes; even during quiet
still scenes the camera would always seem to be moving, and eventually
was giving me a headache. Just to serve as a warning, it's pretty much
like that throughout most of the movie, so brace yourself for an
adventure of epileptic proportions.
— However — The acting was close to brilliant in my opinion. I don't
think the casting for Jason Bourne gets any better than Matt Damon
because he fits the part perfectly. The rest of the cast all pretty
much played their parts well, so I am pleased to announce that there
aren't any exceptionally bad actors or actresses. In addition of the
immersive storyline, it created a much enjoyable film. For a sequel,
this actually surprised me because I enjoyed this movie as much as I
did the first. If you're into action flicks, this definitely will not
bore you. If you liked the first movie, then you'll most likely be very
pleased with the conclusion.
