Movie Review: Bourne Ultimatum

Toronto – Any debate of Bonds vs Bourne ends with this movie. Oh my god was it fantastic. Some naysayers will say that this movie was just one big chase scene, or a movie from one chase scene to another, but for pure adrenaline sakes, this movie was just off the charts. For those who don’t know, Bourne Ultimatum is the last (maybe) movie for the Bourne series. The first was one was good will hunting, where we learn how Jason Bourne became an adult, then he became a spy and killed Robin Williams, Ben Affleck (twice) and Minnie Driver in the prequel to the Bourne Series (to be released still). Anyway, in this movie, Bourne is mad and trying to figure out how it all went wrong. Somehow this leads him to places like London, Madrid, Tangiers and New York City.

But really, who cares about the plot. This is the summer baby! its all about mindless action and this movie definitely delivers. There are some chase/fight scenes in this movie that will definitely impress and its non stop action for pretty much two hours. I think it is probably the best action movie of the summer. My only complain would be the over-usage of quick zooms and cuts, but that is pretty much every action movie now days.

5/5

    Having not seen the previous two in the trilogy of Bourne movies, I was a little reluctant to watch The Bourne Ultimatum.

    However it was a very thrilling experience and I didn’t have the problem of not understanding what was happening due to not seeing the first two films. Each part of the story was easy to understand and I fell in love with The Bourne Ultimatum before it had reached the interval! I don’t think I have ever watched such an exquisitely made, and gripping film, especially an action film. Since I usually shy away from action and thriller type movies, this was such great news to me. Ultimatum is one of the most enthralling films, it grabs your attention from the first second till the last minute before the credits roll.

    Matt Damon was simply fantastic as his role as Jason Bourne. I’ve heard a lot about his great performances in the Bourne 1+2, and now, this fabulous actor has one more to add to his list. I look forward to seeing more of his movies in the future.

    The stunts were handled with style – each one was done brilliantly and I was just shocked by the impressiveness of this movie. Well done.
