One of the best action flicks I've ever seen. From the moment the movie starts until it's jolting end, you are on the ride of your life. Damon, who I would have never imagined as an Action Star, has solidified his place among one of the greats.

The final piece in the original Bourne trilogy and the culmination of a story. Jason Bourne (Matt Damon) continues to unravel the mysteries of his past, digging deeper into Operation Treadstone, the program that created him. Unfortunately the program doesn't seem to be as dead as he has been led to believe.The Bourne Ultimatum is a solid crime action thriller. The character of Jason Bourne is once again beautifully realized by Matt Damon. I really like the way he can pull off these amazing action pieces and fight scenes, while still retaining that close to earth everyday guy vibe. It almost makes it seem like I could pull off these things, whereas someone like James Bond has always been much more a pleasant fantasy.Pamela "Pam" Landy (Joan Allen) is also a welcome return, and she works as a great bridge between the movies, alongside Bourne himself. The film overall works the semi-ending of the second film beautifully into the narrative.Unfortunately that cannot be about the plot in general. The first two films had room to build the mythos, to leave things unresolved, to make allowances for mystery. Whereas this film tries to answer all the questions. And it feels forced. There are certain scenes, certain conversations between characters, that are purely there to nail down all the loose strings, even those that could have been allowed to leave hanging. The curtain is pulled back all the way and unfortunately the reality does not match our imagination.There's also way too much shaky-cam, which ruins the action scenes.Still, if you've liked the previous two, this is by no means a bad film. The characters are enjoyable, the initial plot is interesting - even if the execution could have been better - and it's a very professionally made piece of espionage entertainment.

I really enjoyed the intelligent characters and plot in The Bourne Identity, but this piece of crap is just destroying everything that was great about the first Bourne movie. It seems like someone has forced 10 monkeys to write an arbitrary story line. It has literally no coherent plot whatsoever.It is just a long and surprisingly boring series of consecutive man hunts accompanied by ridiculous cliché lines like "We've got to move!" and "They are on the run!" - and this annoying "Now-things- are-really-exiting" music score. News: You can't have peaks, if you try to sell every god damn scene like it was the most exciting clip in the history of movies ... then everything just ends up looking ridiculous! Insultingly many plot holes, like how CIA is always able to put at least 6 men on rooftops and around in the park in matter of seconds, no matter where on the globe the rendezvous is. And how no one bat an eyelash of a high speed pursuit through close traffic in NY shooting in every direction, and wrecking 100 cars on the way. Are we supposed to believe that that's normal procedure at Langley? Please!And finally the camera movements - it does not, and will never compensate for a lack of story, to let the movie consist of ½ seconds clips with hand-held camera and poor focus! Most of the man hunt scenes (which is pretty close to 90% of the movie) looks like they were taken with a mobile phone by a jogging cameraman with spastic seizures! That might be fun to play with, as an artistic feature in a Dogme movie - here it just makes the movie almost impossible to watch! :-O

The super spy is Bourne.With nothing else to live for, Jason Bourne seeks the final answers to the fractured memories and ghost recollections about what was done to him.The Bourne Ultimatum is a rare third act for a film series; it isn't overblown, it doesn't contrive or skew to "enhance" the story outside of its themes for a bigger showdown. This is an effective conclusion that not only ties up the loose ends that our hero has been suffering, but also maintains a fantastic consistency with its previous films.Something very few third parts ever manage.Bourne Supremacy director Paul Greengrass returns to direct Matt Damon, and by 2007 the two men are well versed in what works and what doesn't. Especially for the Bourne films, and they deliver a roller-coaster urban thrill ride of action. Bouncing off the foundations of Bourne Supremacy, Ultimatum strikes it rich with its two leading ladies Julia Stiles and Joan Allen. Allen playing Pamela Landy, the only surviving official who has first hand knowledge of Bourne's skills and the only one prepared to help the situation, does an excellent job filling the sympathetic gap left by Brian Cox and making a layered character who answers much of the franchise's questions. In the antagonist role, asides from the half-dozen different super agents sent after Bourne, is David Strathairn, who doesn't rise too much farther than Chris Cooper did in Identity, but is a good fit in the role as a merciless official hunting down Bourne.The role of a total schmuck who Bourne continuously runs rings around with spectacular fashion and incredible ease, more like. The film is as enjoyable and rewarding as it is thrilling and suspenseful!We see Bourne in full super spy mode in this film, he is in control and cold as ice. There are pivotal scenes that show how Bourne has tried reconciliation, he's tried to let go of what he's done in the past but he cannot shake the memories that are resurfacing. What we get is a conclusion with Bourne on the warpath. An action movie through-and-through. The film opens with a fantastic scenario in London; where Bourne via phone is navigating someone else through a crowd to not be seen by officials. That should be really hard to film, but Greengrass nails it; you know exactly what's happening, the spaces involved and line of sight. It is followed by the chase in Morocco, a chase and fight sequence that was so incredible that it influenced the Bond franchise for a decade at least, as well as other movies in the genre. Granted there's more shaky-cam in the fight sequence again, but the steadier cinematography for the initial rooftop chase and incredible tension before that makes me go easier on it.It is a tremendous movie and ties both the moodier Identity and the white-knuckled Supremacy together and actually builds on and improves them, delivering a hugely satisfying conclusion for Bourne in the process.
