The Bourne Ultimatum Synopsis

All he wanted was to disappear. Instead, Jason Bourne is now hunted by the people who made him what he is. Having lost his memory and the one person he loved, he is undeterred by the barrage of bullets and a new generation of highly-trained killers. Bourne has only one objective: to go back to the beginning and find out who he was.

Now, in the new chapter of this espionage series, Bourne will hunt down his past in order to find a future. He must travel from Moscow, Paris, Madrid and London to Tangier and New York City as he continues his quest to find the real Jason Bourne--all the while trying to outmaneuver the scores of cops, federal officers and Interpol agents with him in their crosshairs.



Casino Royale got a lot of credit for re-energizing the baleful Bond franchise with fresh ideas, but all it was really doing was aping the Bourne series. Daniel Craig’s movie is just a pale shadow of the Bourne movies, Jason Bourne did it first and Jason Bourne did it better.

What Bourne does so well and Bond wants is take super-spying and plop it down in the middle of reality. Better still, it does that without losing any of the fun associated with movie screen international espionage. There’s action aplenty in the Bourne movies, and that’s part of why the franchise is getting a movie number three.

Back for the third film The Bourne Ultimatum is director Paul Greengrass. He took over the franchise for movie number two, The Bourne Supremacy and while on hiatus between 2 and 3 he made a little movie called United 93. Don’t be surprised if Greengrass is holding an Oscar before Ultimatum hits theaters.And he deserves it. In spite of his sometimes annoying affinity for the shaky cam, Greengrass is an amazing director.

Also back is Matt Damon as Jason Bourne. When we first heard whispers about Damon playing a spy back in 2002, everyone laughed. Matt Damon as a trained killer? Impossible we said. But he’s brilliant. Matt Damon doesn’t look like a spy, and that’s part of the film’s brilliance. With Damon playing the part, Jason Bourne seems realistic. Real spies are average looking guys who kick amazing amounts of ass. Damon is incredibly convincing at that.

With both Damon and Greengrass back, The Bourne Ultimatum should only improve further on the previous two Bourne efforts. Eat your heart out Daniel Craig, you’re just a wannabe Jason Bourne.
