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…
Outstanding setpieces, especially the Tangiers chase, don't really cover up for how unbelievably silly this is, nor do they manage to lend weight to its mostly superficial stabs at political timeliness, recasting its hero as the ultimate (sorry) drone gone rogue. Anyway my favorite thing about this (and all of these movies really) is just how monumentally clueless the CIA guys are. Their ability to track and capture any given character fluctuates wildly due to the needs of this leaden, endlessly expository script, to the point where the entire American intelligence apparatus is hunting Bourne and he manages to fly commercial into New York on a bogus passport and infiltrate the Deputy Director's personal office. Like, they didn't even flag…
"The Bourne Ultimatum" is an absolutely perfect conclusion to the Bourne series. It wraps up everything, and finally gives us many of the answers. It moves at an incredibly fast pace, and the runtime flies by due to Paul Greengrass's energetic and stylish direction. He handles the action scenes even better here, and the Morocco chase/fight sequence is without a doubt my favourite action scene of the franchise. This is just everything you could possibly ask for in an action film, and a conclusion to a series. I'm really having a hard time deciding if I like this film or the second one best.
The Bourne trilogy is one of the few trilogies out there that improved upon each installment and gotten better and better with each installment.
Ultimatum is the top of the ice cream with excellent use of shaky cam, strong acting, great direction, never stops getting unpredictable and exciting, and ends off both the original trilogy right and open the door for more Jason Bourne stories.
Can't wait for Jason Bourne.
While I prefer The Bourne Supremacy more this is definitely as great as Supremacy. What this does for the Bourne series is elevate the stakes for Bourne's future and cements Bourne as the best spy in all of film. My head's still rushing with excitement because I'm HYPED for Jason Bourne!
Also doesn't Brie Larson look like Julia Stiles or is it just me?
It seemed with each subsequent entry of the Bourne series, the greater the critical acclaim it receives, praising upon the film’s thrilling set-pieces, a factor that would become highly influential of the cinematic landscape in the years to come. There is little doubt that Paul Greengrass has shown greater confidence as a filmmaker here, with a greater realisation of who this character truly is in the midst of pressure and desperation, there is a calmness and efficiency in Jason Bourne’s abilities that audiences cannot help but feel envious of, to always have an exit strategy when things become heated or claustrophobic, outsmarting those who stand in their control rooms surveilling him.

The Bourne Ultimatum
We get all the things we love in this third film in the epic Bourne saga including badass fights and car chases but most importantly we get more of the compelling story of this assassin trying to find out who he truly is. This film does a weird thing for a sequel and that is that most of this film takes place before the last scene in The Bourne Supremacy, not sure why they did this but it works. I really love this conclusion to this trilogy and I think it's very poetic that we leave Bourne right where we find him.
Revisiting the first Bourne movie turned into a triple-header. I dig this series. Good action and thrills. It's no Mission: Impossible though.
All three movies are consistently well-crafted, but I feel like the biggest differences between them are: a) which older white government guy is tracking Bourne and b) what kind of cell phones everyone's using.
Do people really consider this the best of the trilogy? The pay-off is so weak and most of the plot felt like padding. Eh, at least Albert Finney gets to chew one scene's worth of scenery as Supreme Older White Government Guy.
Where was Jason Bourne when I was trying to navigate my family reunion without running into my cousins
This is a rare example where my views on the ranking of a movie series has changed. I used to be of the opinion that THE BOURNE IDENTITY was hands down the best of the first three movies, and I still say that movie has the best use of an original story of the three. But respect where it's due: THE BOURNE ULTIMATUM is flat out an action masterpiece.
It's gripping from beginning to end without growing tedious and slowing just enough to keep the audience up to speed. The action is exhilarating, the performances stellar across the board, and the story extremely engaging.
I'm starting to think it's best to think of THE BOURNE IDENTITY as an origin sorry.…
A great follow up to the past 2 films and I found this to be really enjoyable. Though my major issue ends up being that it kinda a nonstop action ride with no room to breathe. A good film though.
Here we go. I think Ultimatum really brings it home with the best action of the franchise so far, and no need for jaunty development breaks.
The Bourne Ultimatum starts a little oddly. Taking place immediately after the climax of The Bourne Supremacy, Jason Bourne begins remembering fragments of a major event in his life. It instantly reminds one of the set-up to Supremacy and gets one worrying this might a retread. However, these worries are unfounded as The Bourne Ultimatum is the best in the series by far. The plot is simpler, but bolstered by the additions of David Strathairn and Albert Finney along with a more intriguing story for the CIA-side of things. Greengrass steps up his game and has the movie feature three spectacular setpieces where only one would make this an incredible movie on its own, but with all three, it's a stunning achievement by director Paul Greengrass. The Bourne Ultimatum is a constantly kinetic trilogy capper that never lets up the thrills and stands as one of the greatest spy movies ever made.
"Uh, sir, he drove off the roof."
"He drove off the roof!"
In terms of pacing and action, The Bourne Ultimatum fits very oddly into the trilogy. It's faster and more action-packed than Identity, but lacks the constantly moving, high-octane feel of Supremacy. Here, the set-pieces take up longer amounts of time and it generally feels like there's more thought put into every single scene (which is odd, considering that a majority of the film was filmed without a script). However, these qualities only add to the feeling of finality. For all intents and purposes, at the time of its release, Ultimatum was the conclusion to the story of Jason Bourne and it brings said story to an end…
