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.
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…
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…
So it only took 8 years for me to finish watching this Bourne trilogy! Not bad, right?
Matt Damon is great once again as Jason Bourne, who continues his quest of digging up his past and finding out what got him to this point. Being such an elite fighting machine, there's no real sense of danger of him being put out of commission, so the film uses both an innocent bystander that Bourne must help - in this case, reporter Simon Ross (Paddy Considine)- but also technology for the CIA to gain the upper hand. The subway station sequence in London alone near the start of the film is worth the 4* rating alone, as CIA Deputy Directors Noah Vosen…
Best of the series yet. Bourne kicks twice as much as ass than he did in the last two films combined. Sucks that he'll be kicking no ass in the sequel.
Tight, but maybe also slight?
This franchise just keeps on keeping on. They really just can't help but stay in the same exact same style and quality. I'd almost say it is a flaw, that each film feels so similar. But when they all feel so similarly fantastic, I don't really want to knock it down at all. Over 30 or 40 years, if they kept doing the same style every time then maybe it would be a flaw. But a trilogy like this is great.
I have no intention on watching the Legacy one. I've just heard so much mediocrity about it. I act like it isn't in existence.
cómo pude mirar las primeras tres películas en un día
cómo fue que me encantaron
Right on par with the first two, making this series one of very few trilogies to keep a high level of quality through all three films. It's nearly impossible for me to pick a favourite, as all three are pretty similar and equally excellent, but this one certainly is an option. The action is even more intense and the story is a natural progression from Supremacy, but the film keeps the trademarks of the series and ties off a lot of the lingering plot points. While the trademarks are all there, I loved how the film updated and changed them to reflect the evolution of the character and the series. For me, the numerous references to minute plot details from…
The first Bourne trilogy ends. More of the same.
The scenes of Bourne giving directions to that reporter in the train station are among the most precisely constructed and great sequences in this series. None of these movies know how to end properly, though, and unfortunately that shortcoming does the most damage here at the finish line. The revelation about Bourne’s super-soldier origins should be a culmination of something, but instead it feels like a plotpoint ripped from a weakass mythology episode of The X-Files.
I really struggle to comprehend why so many claim this is the best of the Damon trilogy. I loved Identity and Supremacy, and there is plenty to admire about Greengrass' ability to direct action, but The Bourne Ultimatum merely feels like an amalgamation of the previous entries.
In fact, in an unedited fashion, I'm going to backtrack and say it's not even that. It skimps on too many of the aspects of those films to be said to be combining, instead appearing to throw much of the intelligence of its predecessors out and blow its load on upping the ante on a visceral level. Its set-pieces are phenomenally executed, but I couldn't care less about - much less remember days later - why they happen.
When Jason Bourne becomes listed on the front page of a newletter, he becomes a "threat" and is on the run from a group who keep trying to cover their tracks. Highly recommended.
Every film that has ever been nominated for an Academy Award in any category. Enjoy!
