One too many?
on 28 December 2007
This has all the same elements as The Bourne Supremacy. Great action sequences, chases, double-crosses, clever spy stuff etc etc. Maybe that's why I ended up feeling a bit let down by it. The fights scenes were pretty good but were hard to follow as the camera flipped all over the place. I realise this adds to the chaos of the scene but a little less would be good. In addition, the plot was re-used as well. I don't think there was anything in this film which wasn't in 'Supremacy'.
I really really liked The Bourne Identity. It was clever and gritty with explosive scenes interspersed with good, well acted dialogue. I felt the snow, cold, tiredness, confusion and even understood the love interest.
With the Bourne Supremacy, I felt sympathy for Jason Bourne and was rooting for him all the way. However, with the Bourne Ultimatum the human element is lost and its a straight-forward, 'good but not great' action film.
