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…
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…
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…
Perfect ending for one of the best film trilogies ever made.
A great ending to my favorite film of all time. The Bourne Trilogy and yes this absoulety the best one as well.
The best Bourne movie by far. Action-packed great end to the series... or is it?
Again, just like the other movies. Mediocre.
The final film (to date) with Matt Damon - is he going to return in the next one? - The Bourne Ultimatum tries to bring the series / trilogy full circle with Bourne trying to find out how he came to be and what the hell happened.
But... essentially more of the same, Bourne wanders around Europe, Africa and America getting in and out of scrapes in enjoyable fashion whist being hunted the whole time by the CIA who thinks he's out to destroy them (even though he hasn't yet).
Some of the fight scenes are outstanding and gave me stitch just watching them, and the cinematography of the European destinations are smart and stylish. A worthy entry into the…
Everything youd ever want in espionage action. Modern genre classic.
This is the best Bourne movie yet! The fight scenes are beautifully choreographed, even when there aren't fight scenes it's still exciting to watch. And I read they're making another one...YAAAA!
The Bourne Ultimatum, much like its predecessors, loses strength from sloppy shaky-cam cinematography and largely incoherent editing, but this strong addition to the franchise still has great action and is a powerfully acted mystery-thriller on top of its action movie backdrop.
"The Bourne Ultimatum" delivers on everything that it set out to deliver from the action, to the further development of Jason Bourne, to the answers that he has been seeking since the first film. The rooftop sequence was definitely one of the best actions scenes ever. I am glad we are getting another Bourne film and I am curious to see where that one goes and how it ends.
Every film that has ever been nominated for an Academy Award in any category. Enjoy!
