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.
This review reportedly contains spoilers. I can handle the truth.
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.
What a capper.
It's pretty impressive how consistent these films are. What makes them special is how each one of them are different and yet nonetheless they stay damn impressive in quality. I felt each one had a unique vibe and flavor that went along with the usual story. The best was saved for last with Ultimatum.
This film is very much a showcase of suspense and tension. There are ebbs and flows to the proceedings that are fun to watch. The film builds to a crescendo only to begin building once again. Thankfully the builds are crucial to the story and only make the explosions all the more powerful. A little sexual innuendo anyone?
My favorite aspect of this…
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.
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 is the third and (unfortunately no longer) final installment of the fantastic Bourne Trilogy. I cannot understand why anyone would want to spoil an almost perfect trilogy with an unnecessary 4th film. I for one am glad that Matt Damon did not feature. Anyway - enough of my ranting and back to the film. Jason Bourne is what we always wished Bond would be like. This is the third installment of a super stylish spy thriller trilogy that simply must be seen. It’s full of ultra realistic performances, amazing locations and twists and turns. We follow Jason Bourne as he continues to piece together his forgotten past. The pace is relentless and Paul Greengrass’ direction is amazing, every shot…
The best action film in recent memory with one of the most badass characters to every grace the silver screen, The Bourne Ultimatum is one of the most solid conclusions to a trilogy out there (as long as you're willing to ignore and forget the unworthy The Bourne Legacy.
It also features one of the greatest set pieces in action/thriller history with the Waterloo station sequence.
Identity and Supremacy were excellent films on their own, but The Bourne Ultimatum is even better. More than a fitting ending to a great trilogy, this film is a masterpiece of the action genre. What had made the previous two films great is here enhanced and intensified, thus the film itself is an even more compelling and thrilling experience.
I usually dislike the shaky camera, but in this film it just works and I guess that is owed to Paul Greengrass' truly mesmerizing direction. The writing in general and the way the story was brought to an end were absolutely satisfying. Needless to say that the action sequences were totally spectacular and breathtaking.
Its impressive cast led by Matt Damon,…
Bourne's Revenege, Part II -
Brought to you in Confuse-o-Vision
This picked up directly after the events of The Bourne Supremacy with Jason Bourne trying to stay one step ahead of the CIA whilst getting to the bottom of Operation Treadstone/Blackbriar. To be honest, it felt like more of the same - which isn't necessarily a bad thing. The shaky camerawork was still there and continued to annoy/confuse me, but overall the film was enjoyable and provided more closure than the previous film at the same time as nicely rounding off the trilogy. I was also happy to see more of Julia Styles, though I still don't think she was used enough.
I don't know whether I'll bother with the semi-sequel The Bourne Legacy or not. I might just wait and see how Matt Damon's return to the series in 2016 goes before catching up again.
Dias atrás estávamos eu e meu grande amigo cinéfilo Luiz discutindo, filme a filme, a recente lista publicada pela Bravo! no qual estão dispostos os 100 filmes essenciais segundo a publicação. Aliás, exercício este muito interessante e delicioso. Mas não quero aqui colocá-la em pauta e sim realizar um pequeno questionamento: o porquê a ausência das obras de novos diretores?
Tocar em terreno sagrado é muito válido, principalmente para a nova geração de admiradores do cinema, mas também um pouco “fácil” já que não há muito a se discutir quando se fala de Orson Welles, Stanley Kubrick, Coppola, Fellini, Woody Allen etc. São diretores geniais que abriram portas e mentes, influenciando muita gente. Isto é fato e ponto. Se pensarmos…
I love it when an action film takes chances with the style of shooting and editing and doesn’t condescend to the audience. With The Bourne Ultimatum Paul Greengrass creates a film that is stylish and fun with a breathtaking pace. While Greengrass received a lot of attention for United 93, the constraints of the events and the memories of September 11 made the film a strange mixture with many different forces acting both within and outside of he film. Freed of those constraints with The Bourne Supremacy and now The Bourne Ultimatum he creates intelligent action films that push the limits of the audience with hand-held camera, rapid cutting, and information delivered quickly and subtly. The brutal pacing and editing…
my name is bourne, jason bourne.
Same as it ever was.
Can't stop watching whenever it comes on TV.
Action films don't get much better than this.
Jason Bourne dodges a ruthless CIA official and his agents from a new assassination program while searching for the origins of his life as a trained killer.
Probably the best of the Bourne films (even though I do like the first one best personally) we see Bourne once again having to defend himself from a fringe of the CIA who are trying to get him. Greengrass really announced himself to the world with United 93 and basically a year later came back with this.
Most people would have seen this by now so I don't need to say a lot. It's a highly entertaining thrill ride that also treats it's audience with respect and doesn't dumb things down like a…
