Bourne Ultimatum review

Psychogenic amnesiac and former CIA assassin Jason Bourne (Matt Damon) escapes from Moscow officials and is being tracked down by CIA Director Ezra Kramer (Scott Glenn) sends Pamela Landy (Joan Allen). Nicky Parsons (Julia Stiles), a former Treadstone support technician assists Bourne from the CIA. Landy informs Jason that she never signed up for Treadstone and Blackbriar and that she is helping him as well. A few reservations this reviewer had were the complications at times with the plot since it was the third installment from the franchise, the other would be the believability of some action sequences jumping from high places without any dislocated bones while dodging bullets and the wobbly camera direction that was a bit overdone. Compared to the first two films, this definitely s...

"The Bourne Ultimatum" by Yojimbo

The final installment of the Bourne franchise sees Matt Damon finally discovering who he is and who's behind this fine mess he's in. I must admit, I found this film an odd one. The usual formula of a thriller involves the story being set up for the first two thirds of the film, and the last half hour climaxes with a frenetic action set piece. In The Bourne Ultimatum, it's the other way round! The first hour and a half is more of Greengrass' wobbly cam following an earnest looking Damon as he runs through interchangeable corridors, chases down generic bad guys and speeds through traffic. There is literally no plot til the last half hour. It reminded me of The Matrix trilogy in that the second film seemed irrelevant, and the two sequels could easily have been compressed into one superior fi...

The Bourne Ultimatum

The Bourne Ultimatum is a high energy, fun filled time that is a step above most of hollywood THIRD installments. With a Director like Paul Greengrass on this project, you know you're in for fast paced entertainment (and shaky camera work), he delivers again here. A nice screenplay such as the one here is another added plus. This film is filled with Outstanding, Eye Popping Fight Scenes and Intensity to boot. Matt Damon is first rate (as always). Joan Allen and David Straithern are both terrific in supporting roles and Julia Stiles is given more to do this time around and she offers a pretty good performance as well. Albert Finney in a very small role, is good. This film is a delight to watch and it will keep you glued to the screen all the way through. The "Bourne" franchise is still goi...

I...just...love this movie!!!! Bourne is the MAN

Plain and simple... WATCH THIS MOVIE!!! If you're an action or spy fan of any sorts, the Bourne trilogy is a must, and might be the best Spy series ever made. James Bond is fine, but this takes the genre to a whole new level. Jason Bourne is a true spy who doesn't need crazy gadgets and martinis to finish the job. Rather, he knows how to kill quickly, efficientily and quietly, and the realism of these movies make this so much more rewarding and satisfying.

On top of Damon's fantastic performance (its his defining role), the action scenes are some of the best around. Although there are a few moments that are unrealistic, for the most part everything works, and it's beyond enthralling. This movie is one continuous action scene that doesn't let up until the very end. Because of this, th...

Bourne dodges new, superior assassins as he searches for his unknown past while a government agent tries to track him down. In the follow up to 2002's The Bourne Identity and 2004's The Bourne Ultimatum.

The Ultimatum begins where Supremacy ends as MENTIONED in the picture. It was said Marie died in Januray of that year, making it continued on from the first one. I won't say to much about the end but it's an excellent end to this outstanding trilogy. From the moment that the opening title appeared, I knew we were in for a ride. Paul Greengrass has done it again. Everything we love from the previous Bourne films is here once again: the action, the dialogue, and of course the shaky camera. However for me, that last one was never a problem. I think it adds to the suspense. The Bourne ser...

Ultimately satisfying...

I liked both The Bourne Identity (2002) and The Bourne Supremacy (2004) but I didnít love them. As espionage thrillers they were a welcome antidote to Bond (especially in the wake of 2002ís bloated Die Another Day), were competently made and, at the very least, consistently entertaining. It seems to be something bordering on blasphemy to suggest this, but I must admit I preferred the Doug Liman directed Identity over its sequel, helmed by Paul Greengrass. The latterís handheld camerawork (even in scenes where a properly composed, static shot would be more effective) constantly distracted me from the onscreen events. This irritating stylistic choice, coupled with an unnecessary-to-the-plot (though undoubtedly thrilling) car chase in the final act makes Supremacy the weaker film, in my opin...

Bourne Ultimatum, an A+

The Bourne Ultimatum - A+

Matt Damon returns for another spectacular film! The Bourne Ultimatum is probably the best action movie to date. As Jason Bourne continues his search for his past he faces ever more difficult situations. Those following him are more relentless than ever.

Beginning just when Supremacy left off, the film takes us immediately into the action as Bourne runs from Moscow police. As a newspaper writer uncovers the story of Jason Bourne both he and Bourne get caught up in the hunt as CIA officials try to keep the story under wraps. Bourne must find a way to avoid being seen by cameras and secret agents while trying to meet and protect the news writer. The hunt leads to Tangier as Bourne tries to track down the source behind the newspaper story. When things don't...

Continued Bourne Enjoyment

Another great addition to the Bourne series. Lots of action, great car chases, everything you want. Three great movies in a row is hard to do, but it was a success.

Matt Damon continues to play an excellent role in this film as Jason Bourne. The story continues on where it left off in the last film, and the writers continue to amaze us with the action we love when it comes to these movies. The one thing you sure don't want to miss is the one-on-one fight scene Bourne has with an assassin in a small apartment like room. I think it may just be the best fight scene out of all the Bourne films.

Two things that I do have to complain about. The fast, intense action scenes are using more of a hand-held camera approach. Which is ok, but it is starting to be a little too shaky. It a...

The Bourne Ultimatum

Jason Bourne pulled a Sydney Bristow. For the fans of the great show called "Alias," you'll know what I'm talking about. If not, that's okay. All the more reason for you to see it. Although I predicted that something like that happened to Bourne, it remains extraordinarily exciting. No one is safe in this supposed final installment. I am immensely glad they had the bravado to kill off a potential main character in the first few scenes, not to mention put Julia Stiles' beloved character in an unimaginable danger in the roofs. It was so exhilirating, I got numb and shaken at several points throughout the film. The assassins are deadlier, the hand-to-hand combats more real, and the car chases at its best. Not to mention desperation is in the air as characters switch from one side to another ...

Superman.

*Waitress comming* "Yeah, I'd would please have this recipe: Some charismatic and charming actor, 1 1/2 hottie, 100 grs. of cool music, 1 ton of awesome cinematography, 1 kg of perfect script, 50 grs. of smart dialogues, and a freaking great engind for one of the best trilogies ever." Thank you very much, sir. Mr. Paul Greengrass has reached the rank of Master in my list.

The (I really hope so) final chapter of the Bourne series is a masterpiece in several aspects. Greengrass has the touch, and understands the bussines, but. *But*... he gives to the film, an action film, that unique touch that only men with vision and aesthetic sense (not only visual, but in terms of scripting and putting together everything). The Bourne story is not hard to follow at all, and you see trough the 3 film...
