The Bourne Ultimatum
Remember everything. Forgive nothing.
Bourne is brought out of hiding once again by reporter Simon Ross who is trying to unveil Operation Blackbriar, an upgrade to Project Treadstone, in a series of newspaper columns. Information from the reporter stirs a new set of memories, and Bourne must finally uncover his dark past while dodging The Company's best efforts to eradicate him.
An absolute marvel of action filmmaking, a stunning work of precision craftsmanship & a fitting conclusion to the Jason Bourne saga, The Bourne Ultimatum is a rare second sequel that works flawlessly by taking a huge leap with its premise to effortlessly surpass the towering expectations set by its much-beloved predecessors & isn't just the finest instalment of The Bourne Trilogy but is impressive enough to qualify as one of the greatest films ever made.
Picking up the storyline right where it was left off in The Bourne Supremacy before taking a six weeks leap, The Bourne Ultimatum continues the quest of Jason Bourne as he retraces his steps back to his origin with a few help along the road to guide…
Possibly the greatest spy thriller ever. Truly thrilling in every moment, powered by Greengrass' superb kinetic directing and editing. This film ever ceases to entertain and excite. The best of the Bourne franchise.
This review reportedly contains spoilers. I can handle the truth.
"Hope for the best, plan for the worst."
Jason Bourne is a man on a mission and he's relentless in his quest to find out who he is. The CIA then had better prepare for another ass whooping because after two films they still haven't got the message. Their pursuit of him is equally persistent but what possible chance have they got against Bourne, really?
Ultimatum is like the icing on the cake, not only does it finish off the series in great style, it's also the best part. Not mainly sequels can claim that, let alone threequels (that's not a word). This time Bourne is having more flashbacks, but this time it appears to be to the origins of…
I did manage the whole trilogy in one day. Yay me!
The Bourne Ultimatum has to overcome a couple of issues. Firstly, Paddy Considine is not only miscast but utterly wasted as a nosy newspaper journalist who ends up feebly standing by as Matt Damon beats up blokes around him and generally acting like a flapping ninny. That said, the main scene he's involved in around Waterloo station (never could look at that place the same after I saw this!) is quite marvellously tense.
It also suffers from overusing the 'dodgy CIA boss' storyline, even doubling up on that front this time round and then still failing to use the excellent Scott Glenn nearly enough anyway. Fortunately The Bourne Ultimatum…
Watched as my last piece of Christmas TV programming in Scotland last night, I at least left the country having converted my sister into a Bourne fan. If the family wasn't so brilliant then God knows how I would've made it through the worst Xmas TV schedule in recent history. Even the film rentals didn't inspire us too much.
On a second watch it remains as gripping as the first time round although the ADHD editing is more noticeable, your eyes in danger of rolling into the back of your head trying to keep pace with the 3 second limit of each shot.
Although they both said they wouldn't, it is pleasing to hear Damon and Greengrass are coming back…
I thought that if I watched this again while jumping up and down, doing cartwheels and somersaults it might counterbalance the unbelievably annoying shaky cam.
It gave me an even worse headache than the first time I watched it.

This unbelievably tense and suspenseful as f*ck film would easily get a 5 star rating from me, if it wasn't for one unbelievably annoying factor; that it is filmed by a cameraman who seems to have some severe abstinences recovering from some sort of a real heavy drug abuse.
John Powell's brilliant score distracts me enough away from this from time to time, but still...
The Bourne Shaky Cam!
But seriously, the constant camera movement was my only problem with this. The Bourne trilogy went out with a bang, keeping me thrilled from beginning to end.
[continued from Identity review] 3rd great.
Gelungener Abschluss für eine gute Agentenfilm-Trilogie, bei dem ich ziemlich beeindruckt war, dass sie es geschafft haben, die Qualität gleichmäßig hoch zu halten. Bei vielen Filmreihen hat man ja doch irgendwann einen Aussetzer drin, aber ich könnte jetzt nicht sagen, welcher Bourne Teil mir am besten gefallen hat. Die Action ist immer sehenswert, die Schauspieler machen ihre Sache gut und es bleibt durchgehend spannend. Diesmal haben mir die Szenen am Bahnhof und auf den Dächern besonders gut gefallen, aber auch wie sie wieder Charaktere aus den ersten beiden Filmen aufgegriffen haben. Und der Übergang vom zweiten zum dritten Teil war erstklassig umgesetzt!
The best of the Bourne Trilogy in my opinion. Love it. Electrifying, thrilling, and entertaining. And damn love the soundtrack.
Começou com um bom filme e termina a trilogia com uma película onde não há o mesmo envolvimento emocional. A identificação com o personagem pareceu se perder ao longo dos três filmes, tornou-se uma sucessão de cenas de perseguição e o excesso de cortes chega a incomodar. Há algumas jogadas inteligentes mas nada que surpreenda. Ficou na média.
Every film that has ever been nominated for an Academy Award in any category. Enjoy!
