The Bourne Ultimatum

The Bourne Ultimatum (2008)

Directed by: Paul Greengrass
Starring: Matt Damon, Julia Stiles, David Strathairn, Scott Glenn

Synopsis: All he wanted was to disappear. Instead, Jason Bourne is now hunted by the people who made him what he is. Having lost his memory and the one person he loved, he is undeterred by the barrage of bullets and a new generation of highly-trained killers. Bourne has only one objective: to go back to the beginning and find out who he was. Now, in the new chapter of this espionage series, Bourne will hunt down his past in order to find a future. He must travel from Moscow, Paris and London to Tangier and New York City as he continues his quest to find the real Jason Bourne—all the while trying to outmaneuver the scores of cops, federal officers and Interpol agents with him in their crosshairs.

WoW, a shorter synopsis. Where to start.. My midn is completly blank, literally. The story is so fucking great. The way they pieced togehter the second and third, is beyond genius level, immortal maybe. All questions will be answered. All bits and pieces fall in place. I'd have to take my statements back, because all three movies were needed, to but together such a masterpiece. Compared to the first movies, this one has a lot more action going on for it. But at the same time they don't forget about the storyline itself. Fighting, action and all those running and escaping scenes, amazing. He's like fucking Houdini, catch me if you can. There's just so many good things to say about this movie and the entire trilogy. The screenwriter had to be high or something to come up with this idea. Enough babbling. Final Verdict?? WATCH THE ENTIRE TRILOGY!! and that's it!


  1. Makes me want to watch it, I might actually rent this trilogy sometime this week.

  2. I'm going to be completely honest and say that I was pretty unimpressed with the entire Bourne Trilogy. I enjoy them as action movies, but can't really say that they are really anything special. Some fight scenes are pretty cool and there are a couple good car chases, but ultimately, many other movies have done it and done it better. Plus a lot of quick cuts does not a good action scene make. Still definitely worth a watch though. And you've inspired me to maybe get into movie reviews on my blog since I don't know what direction i want to take with it.
