The Bourne Ultimatum
The Bourne Ultimatum is the third Bourne movie, and it answers all those unanswered questions that have come up in the first two. What I love about this whole series is that it’s smart. The character of Jason Bourne is really a smart guy, and the people he is up against are smart, too. That’s really their whole challenge, is who can out-smart who! It makes for a very compelling story.
This part is just so right for Matt Damon. He doesn’t have to say much, all of his acting is in his facial expressions – very intense, deep, and thoughtful. Julia Stiles plays his de-facto side-kick, and she’s great, strong and decisive. The whole cast is great – Joan Allen, David Strathhairn – terrific performances.
The chase scenes are amazing – so much action, but not too much. This is a thinker’s action movie. And though we have some resolution at the end, we can hope for a fourth Bourne movie.
