Movie Review: The Bourne Ultimatum

Alternate Title: David versus Goliath

Story: Will finally knowing the truth set Jason Bourne free? This fast paced, energetic and very exhausting third part of the series directed again by Paul Greengrass with another screenplay by Tony Gilroy (based very loosely on the novel by Robert Ludlum) aims to give us the answer.

Jason Bourne is on the run. He has pits and pieces of memory and needs to know who he is and what happened to him. Above all, why are all of those people trying to kill him?

Bourne is seen running, being chased and chasing people all over the globe including wonderfully scenic Moscow, Paris , London, Madrid, Tangier and New York City. It does not really matter if you have seen the first two parts of this trilogy but it makes it more entertaining if you have. The camera work is pure jiggly, manic Greenglass but in this case – it works well.

If you like your action heroes smart and easy on the eye Jason Bourne is your man for this summer. In a film where in two hours only one person cracks a smile you get more than your money’s worth (although I found myself smiling quite a bit). Go see it and fasten your seat belt. It is a very bumpy ride. Read the rest of the 8 Lobo Howl Review here.

It wasn’t the best movie-the plot was thin for a spy movie. But, if you liked the first two, you’ll probably like this one.
