Movie Review: The Bourne Ultimatum


Featuring: Matt Damon, Julia Stiles, David Strathairn, Scott Glenn, Paddy Considine, Edgar Ramirez, Albert Finney, Joan Allen

Genre: action, adventure

Plot: Jason Bourne still doesn’t know who he is

Acting: just like in the other two there really wasn’t much of that, the accent being put on action mostly

Drama: we almost think he dies in the end

Action: fully packed but nothing extraordinary

Funny: umm, nope

Visuals: filmed with a mobile camera documentary style at times, great source for headaches

Soundtrack: very alert but also annoying if taken out of context

Comments: I was never too impressed with the Bourne movies, it always seemed too me there was too much action and Damon time alone on the screen while lacking in anything else that a good story should have. The first one was the only acceptable one, the rest was just filling dragging like a tail after a stray dirty unwanted dog. Stiles character wasn’t really needed in this sequel and Bourne should have probably been killed to spare us of another one. But then again, there’s always Rambo…

Rating: 3/5
