Movie Summary

Paul Greengrass
Released:
2007
Rating:
PG-13

The Bourne Ultimatum is third in the Bourne film series. Six weeks after being shot by the Russians, Jason Bourne comes out of hiding to contact a reporter at The Guardian, Simon Ross, after learning that the reporter is researching Operation Blackbriar. Operation Blackbriar along with Project Treadstone lie at the basis of who Jason Bourne is, and how David Webb became Jason Bourne. Anxious to meet Ross, Bourne sets up a rendezvous in Paris. The two meet and begin to share information but Bourne realizes that the CIA or someone is tailing Ross. Bourne gives Ross specific instructions to lose the tail and meet up later. Unfortunately Ross does not realize the seriousness of the situation and strays from the plan. He's shot by a Blackbriar assassin, the hit ordered by Blackbriar's director Noah Vosen. Non-stop action follows as Bourne retrieves the dead reporter's bag and traces the clues in Ross's notebooks. With the help of Nicky Parsons, Bourne works through clues, intrigue and danger to come closer to finding out about his past.

  • The best in the Bourne trilogy, in my opinion.

    Strong 3 1/2 stars, almost tempted to go for 4.



    The best in the Bourne trilogy, in my opinion.



    The tempo was extremely good between action and cat-and-mouse chases - something the previous films lacked. The good rhythm makes the movie more interesting to watch.



    The story had to tie some loose ends here, bringing in cast of old and new - and to bring the story to a conclusion, with Bourne being hunted, him hunting for the truth and some sort of resolution had to be found.



    Action, stunts, chases and shooting - anything a good action film needs - with the pieces constantly moving and keeping you guessing for the next turn of events.moreless
