THE BOURNE ULTIMATUM
The Bourne Ultimatum was action packed and Matt
Damon as always was really impressive. I know Iím
going to get boos for this, but Iíve seen all three
movies and I really think the last one had a better
story. If youíre unfamiliar with these movies all there
is to know is Jason Bourne doesnít know who he is.
For three movies now, he runs around trying to find
out who he is and why he killed all these people for
Obviously he was some sort of operative assassin,
but the story just seems to linger on there. Besides
Matt Damonís amazing acting ability, awesome
fighting scenes there was a little twist with Julia
Styles character Nicky Parsons. They very subtly
gave off a great vibe that Jason Bourne and Nicky
possibly knew each other from before. Before he
became Jason Bourne, but donít quote me on that.
I did enjoy the interaction between Damon and
Styles. They were very cool and collected in their
Also Pamela Landy (Joan Allen) kept it real with the
very irritating Noah Vosen (David Strathairn) who
basically wants everyone dead. Incase you canít
tell thereís this big cover up. Bourne was the brain
washed demo that went rogue.
I donít know, but the Bourne movies always have
great action, but the story for me has fallen flat. We
get three movies and still we donít really know who
Jason Bourne is. Iím talking about a background
story itís not there folks. I suppose if they go for a
fourth one they left this third movie wide open for
that. We get answers, but we also get more questions. The cast was great, the action was great and
if you love Matt Damon itís totally worth seeing.
Generally the movie was pretty clean.
No bad humor or any real questionable situations
that I recall. Outside of the blowing up and some
language Iíd say it was a pretty safe movie.
If I had to grasp any moral value from this movie,
Iíd say never lose who you are. Be true to yourself
no matter what.
Itís a good film.
*** Rated: PG-13
