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.
My favourite in the series. "The Bourne Ultimatum" is an absolutely perfect ending to this great trilogy. The action sequences are unbelievably intense and well filmed, the story is engaging throughout, and it has what is arguably Matt Damon's best performance to date. Love this film and love this series.
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…
Beware films whose intended audience have to be told by subtitles that Turin is in Italy, Madrid in Spain and Paris in France. The acting is not very damon-strative either.
This could be the best espionage thriller ever, and there's more coming! Taken as a whole, the trilogy is amazing, from the plot to the editing. Jaw dropping on blu-ray.

Toda la carne en el asador. En el año de "There Will Be blood" y "No Country for Old Men", hasta se llevó tres Oscars, incluído mejor edición.
Greengrass siendo Greengrass. Con Cox raspado, se trajeron a David Strathairn, Scott Glenn y unos minutos de Albert Finney para llenar sus zapatos. Julia Stiles y Joan Allen regresan como la luz en la oscuridad gubernamental y Matt Damon sigue siendo Jason Bourne, es decir, un Matt Damon sin sentido del humor.
Edgar Ramirez es el "Asset" mas relevante de esta película y está allí por una razón mas de corazón que de músculos. Es el asset correcto para el final de la trilogía.
Satisfying finale to the Bourne trilogy. Admittedly, this one doesn't do too much to top the previous entry in terms of shaky cam action or engaging emotional development. Yet, there are still plenty of great bits of spy tactics and action to make the journey worthy. Plus, the final reveal of Bourne's actual backstory adds such a tragic irony to the character. He searched so long for his past only to realize that his past was doomed to disappoint his entire journey in the first place. Tragic ironies aside, there's still plenty of closure with other characters of the series that makes this a more than worthy finale that's still open ended. Though, I guess we need to have some sort of spin off? Whatever...

Paul Greengrass's camera moves and acts in ways that somehow reflect back to us the US's—and, by consequence, the world's—post-9/11 situation (I take United 93 to be indicative of his interests). It reflects and visualises our personal and social emotional worlds: constant images disconnected from context, disorientation, not knowing where to look or how to focus. All the while the panopticon monitors.
This film bookends a series that explores a subject "unplugged" from the neoliberal state of emergency. The series has been most…
I'm not saying he would, but Jason Bourne would most likely kill me if I got in his way.
I wasn't too hot on 'Identity' or 'Supremacy', so I was delighted by how much the third Bourne film tickled me pink. This is shaky cam done right. 'Ultimatum' does its best with its silly story, but it's the action setpieces that make this movie "great" instead of "good".
Now we've come to the greatest film in the greatest achievement of the action genre. Everything that's great about the genre is pinnacled, and it's not just that end of a franchise placebo that makes you think it's the best because it wraps everything up. The Bourne Ultimatum's ending is roughly the same as the others. And leaves this well-enough open for a continued saga, but we feel as if all the questions that we (and Bourne) had, had been answered enough for satisfaction.
Even though I'm not a very big fan of the Action genre as a whole, I'd still consider putting the Bourne trilogy in the list of all-time great trilogies.
Definitely my favourite of the three. Thrilling action, suspense and lots of excellent fights, but it's also really cleverly structured and wonderfully paced. Love it.
Every film that has ever been nominated for an Academy Award in any category. Enjoy!
I'd love to see more of these stories. REALLY entertaining stuff. If anyone has some, send away.
