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…
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.
The entire portion of the film set in Tangiers is reason enough to watch this film.
Script issues aside, this propulsive cap to the Bourne trilogy jumps out the gate and doesn't let up at all. The action is a little more frenetic, but Greengrass still has a way to make shaky cam compelling.
Joan Allen matches up well with David Strathairn in the bureaucratic side of the narrative.
Decent performances and action scenes but the storyline is a little flat.
Bourne is a fucking badass! That's all I have to say.
I'd forgotten how fast-paced this movie is. From beginning to end, it didn't stop. Not even to breathe. It's like a really long third-act, as it should be. I loved that.
Bourne (Matt Damon) vira assunto do jornalista britânico Simon Ross (Paddy Considine), que obteve as informações por uma fonte da CIA. O ex-agente resolve conversar com o jornalista para tentar descobrir quem é a fonte e ir atrás de sua vida real, pré-CIA. Ao mesmo tempo, o projeto Blackbriar, dirigido por Noah Vosen (David Straithairn), busca se livrar de Simon antes que ele revele demais sobre os projetos secretos da CIA. Tudo isso enquanto Pamela Landy (Joan Allen) investiga as práticas escusas da agência.
Gilroy e Greengrass fazem algo sensacional no terceiro longa da franquia: posicionam a narrativa antes da cena final do filme anterior, repetindo-a apenas quase no final do segundo ato, de forma que ela funciona em Supremacia…
A huge achievement, everything comes together to make as good a Bourne film as we're ever likely to get as well as clearly being one of the greatest spy thrillers of all time. This is a thrilling film executed to near perfection. I'm still not a fan of the shaky cam. Still not a fan of the contemporary music used throughout the series. Otherwise, this is awesome.
One thing is certain Paul Greengrass loves to go rogue with the camera and shake it all over the place. Ultimatum feels like the most realistic in terms of the actual plot; a government cover up of a press leak gone awry, in a different world I imagine this being the response to Snowden. Despite having a pretty interesting script the actors all seem like they are suffering from Weekend At Bernie’s syndrome, you know totally dead and operated by Rube Goldberg contraption.
The Bourne Ultimatum is one of the most boring and uninteresting films I have ever seen. The camera work was terrible and so was the direction, which is a shame because I actually like the film Captain Philips (which was another film that the guy who made this film directed). I am probably never going to watch this film ever. If I had to name one good thing about it, is the acting I suppose, but that didn't do much for me as it wouldn't have made a difference. I know this isn't a popular opinion but it is my personal opinion but this is one of the worst action films I have ever seen, I'd even go as far as to say one of the worst films I have ever seen. This is nothing new as I didn't enjoy the first two Bourne films, and obviously my opinion on series hasn't changed with this one.
