The Bourne Ultimatum Review.

Thoughts: The Bourne Ultimatum is one of those rare third parts to a trilogy that is far better than any of its processors. Also it is one of my favorite action movies in general; it has the perfect combination of action, thrills, tension, and plot. One of the flaws with the The Bounre Supremacy was that the movie was not near as interesting when not about Jason Bourne; however The Ultimatum introduces the character Noah Vosen, played by David Strathairn. He is a great antagonist and his performance was fantastic. With the exception of a few somewhat unrealistic car crashes, you buy that just about everything in the movie could actually happen. The Ultimatum's pacing is furious, it almost never slows and it is a near constant thrill ride. Also the movie is morally ambiguous; it is not exactly clear who is truly the good guys. The Bourne Ultimatum currently holds a 94% fresh rating from Rotten and a 98% from their Top Critics, which is nearly unheard of for an action movie. It also won three Academy Awards including, Best Film Editing, Best Sound Mixing, and Best Sound Editing.

Genre: Action, Suspense, Thriller, Spy

The Good: Best of The Bourne movies, Takes the best things about the other Bourne movie, Gives you the answers you want, Excellent hand-to-hand fight scenes, More than satisfying conclusion, Awesome action scenes, Better acting and cast than previous entries, Great chase scenes, David Strathairn as Noah Vosen was fantastic, More complex plot,

The Bad:

Plot: The Bourne Ultimatum takes place Six weeks after the end of the The Bounre Supremacy. Because it would spoil the previous movies' plot I will not have a plot summary. If you have not read my reviews for the previous Bourne movies please click on the link to read them The Bourne Identity Review. and The Bounre Supremacy Review.

Plot: 9.5/10- The Bourne Ultimatum has one of the best plots for an action movie, the reveal is more than satisfying and the pacing is perfect. The dialogue is much sharper and more interesting than the previous movies.

Action: 9.7/10- Some of the best realistic action scenes ever filmed. They are intense, brutal, and the shaky cam is actually used to great effect in this film. Also the chase scenes are very impressive, and the fight scenes well choreographed.

Acting: 9.3/10- Matt Damon improved his performance and David Strathairn as the new character Noah Vosen was excellent. The other cast members were very good as well.

Special effects: N/A

Soundtrack: 8.9/10- The soundtrack helps add an intense feel to the action scenes.

Comedy: N/A

Would I Watch This Again: Most definitely, I will be watching again.

Overall: 9.4/10- Overall The Bourne Ultimatum is a fantastic movie and it ends The Bourne Trilogy perfectly.

Closing comments: The Bourne Ultimatum ended the trilogy well and it gave the audience some answers, yet left it open.
