I think it must be me who's missing something here... I completely disagree with the negative reviews on here. I think the Bourne trilogy is one of the strongest I've seen for years and that includes the 'cash cow' that is the Mission Impossible. Matt Damon is very convincing in this role and although I think The Bourne Identity is still my favourite of the three, this really was a great ending. It's non-stop action all the way and a keep-you-guessing plot throughout. I loved the long action sequences and the shaky camera style which really adds to the atmosphere. You also really get a sense of the locations that are used in the film too - loved all the shots in Tangiers! There are plenty of other action movies out there right now, but if you want well thought out, directed and excuted action sequences - and a good thriller then the Bourne Ultimatum is for you.

The third instalment of the Bourne series sees Matt Damon (Good Will Hunting) reprise his role as Jason Bourne, the ex Treadstone agent who is looking for answers about his past. Bourne travels across Moscow, London and Madrid to try and find answers whilst Pamela Landy (Joan Allen) and Noah Vosen (David Strahairn) try to track him down.

Winner of 3 Oscars, The Bourne Ultimatum is one of the best thrillers of recent times with edge of your seat car chases, gun fights and great characters.

The plot is solid with mystery and excitement at every turn with the characters leading the way. It's exciting, enjoyable, interesting and energetic throughout, justifying the genre wonderfully and proving that the genre is not just about special effects, but more about the plot, which makes the film unique.

What makes the film great for me is the work that went in to make it. Hardly any special effects were added, the team use real filming locations in Madrid, Waterloo Station and America, Damon does a lot of his own stunts and all of these factors are fantastic to make the film amazing and even more realistic.

The action and thriller genre gets scrutinized for its lack of realism but this film excels as it is always realistic and doesn't go over the top with special effects and action sequences. It uses the right amount to make it exciting and interesting for viewers.

Damon, Allen, Stiles and the whole cast are fantastic. The locations for the scenes are great, especially the scene at Waterloo Station which is a landmark for the thriller genre.

The ending is unbelievably tense and exciting.

Paul Greengrass' fast flowing direction justifies the plot beautifully.

The latest Bourne film manages to maintain almost the same standard as the first two films. I say almost because this isn't as good as the first two. Its certainly action-packed and a non-stop thrill ride from beginning to end. However, at times it borders on parody as Bourne manages to escape from another car crash, or leap from roof to roof completely unscathed. Any sense that this could really happen is lost in this film.

It starts really well (and believeable to) as a Guardian newspaper journalist meets Bourne in London at a packed Waterloo station. This is a great set piece and the best part of the film. After this there are some other great set pieces and a memorable fight with an assasin where there is no background music - another brilliant sequence.

However, the Jason Bourne is indestructible element, and the fact that he seems to get from country to country without any problem (the CIA can control cameras at Waterloo station but they can't catch people at Airports??) makes the whole thing totally inplausible. Now I've no doubt that if you analysis the first two films you can probably make the same criticsm - but I think less obviously so.

So overall this is a classy action film, but its moved away from the 1960's style espionage film that made the first one so unique.

This is the best one of the 3 movies.
There is no respite in the action from beginning to end .It starts just after the end of the Moscow apartment visit in TBS and take sit from there.

Some of the action sequels repeat themselves to boredom and become predictive but not this one ,is all about thinking quick to stay alive for the next few minutes .

Directed by Paul Greengrass the average take is a couple of seconds a is shot mainly with hand held cameras , so it gives the impression that you see what Jason sees.Some viewers complain that it makes it difficilt to focus but to me it makes it look more real.

The sequence in Waterloo station is the best in the whole trilogy and the sequence in Morocco the second best.
We see a lot more of Nicky Parsons ( I wished she had a bigger role ).
Is more about answers that questions and 100 % action.

I hope the bring out a nice DVD trilogy set with lots of extras an deleted scenes.

Movie of the year.

Wonderful. It just keeps on getting better., every new Bourne film improves on the last and this is, without a doubt, the best of them. being able to keep the now uniquely Bourne type of action throughout the whole film is a feat, but combined with excellent actors, stunts, twists and turns throughout the whole film is absolutely STUNNING and makes for great watching every single time!

The best bit of this movie? Got to be the rooftop chase ending in a hand to hand fight. Put up against last winter's Casino Royale's opening chase with the free running Bourne wins hands down!! I'm not saying that Bond's wasn't amazing, but Bourne's explodes (literally) from another chase sequence and one with edge of your seat tension that I have only experianced in Bourne films.

Definitely my Film of 2007 and everyone should see it!!
