Bourne Ultimatum review
Daniel Corleone - wrote on 01/13/12
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 stands out as the best because of better action, antagonists, screenplay, pacing and soundtrack. Bourne Ultimatum won Best Film Editing, Best Sound Mixing, and Best Sound Editing in the Academy Awards, which evidently rewarded the director and crews efforts in making this one of the best action movies around.
