The Bourne Ultimatum

New review by Nick at Nite

The Bourne Ultimatum

I loved this movie. A good spy thriller is a great way to spend a Saturday afternoon. So few of these films are made that it is a special treat when one is released. So often sequels are a significant disappointment. Superman IV, Jaws III and IV, Back to the Future II and III, Matrix Revolutions, Three Men and a Little Lady, Bambi II, Rocky III and IV, Rambo II and III, Nine to Five II, Sense and Sensibility II, Taxi Driver II, The Fog II, and Braveheart II. It is nice when a sequel comes along that lives up to the hype and is actually better than its predecessors. Here we find Jason Bourne still struggling to figure out who he is and who is to blame for making him into the lethal killing machine that he has become. Most of the questions unresolved by the first two movies are answered in this film. The chase sequences are amazing. There is not a ton of dialogue from Mr. Bourne, but we don't really need it. Matt Damon was asked, "is there any chance for another sequel?" He responded, "yes, we will call it the Bourne Redundancy." Here is hoping they can find a way to do it. When it ain't broken why fix it or change it. I give it an "A."
