The Bourne Ultimatum (2007)


Movie Review

Directed by: Paul Greengrass

Starring: Matt Damon, Julia Stiles, David Strathairn, and Joan Allen

When British reporter Simon Ross (Paddy Considine) discovers Operation Blackbriar and publishes information about the program and its participants, Jason Bourne (Matt Damon) reaches out to him to find out what he really knows and how that can help to uncover Bourne’s past.  When Bourne comes out of hiding to meet Ross, the CIA resumes its relentless hunt of the legendary spy.  CIA Deputy Noah Vosen (David Strathairn) leads the effort to track down and kill Jason Bourne.  Pam Landy (Joan Allen) reluctantly assists in the effort giver her knowledge of Bourne from her failed attempts to capture him previously.  Julia Stiles reprises her role as Nicky Parsons.

This final installment in the Bourne trilogy does not fail to meet the lofty expectations set by its predecessors.  The Bourne Ultimatum is like a great rollercoaster.  Once the ride is done, you’re left wishing for more because it was just so good.  It’s because the film is driven by pulse-pounding action sequences that cause an adrenaline rush.  Every car chase, explosion, or fight adds to this nonstop thrill ride.  The exhilaration and intensity of this spy thriller is almost overwhelming.  The Bourne Ultimatum is truly one of the greatest action flicks to ever grace the big screen.  This film definitely gets a sober rating.
