Even the best of film series tend to fall apart by their third installment (I'm looking at you Spiderman and X-men) but this film was a pleasent surprise that lived up to, continued and from the looks of it concluded the Bourne saga.
This is the final movie in the Bourne trilogy following "The Bourne Identity" (2002) and "The Bourne Supremacy" (2004).
This film is loosely based on the novel "The Bourne Ultimatum" (1990) by Robert Ludlum (1927 to 2001).
Jason Bourne (Matt Damon) finally gets all the answers he was looking for in the first two films. In other words, all is revealed.
This movie takes us all over the world to such places as London, Paris, Madrid, and Tangier (in Morocco).
This is one, smart, action movie. It's also exciting. Action fans definitely will not be disappointed!
There are two chase scenes in this movie that are, in a word--unforgettable. These are a rooftop pursuit in Tangier and a New York City car chase. Also, there is one incredible fight scene.
Matt Damon gives a good performance as a former CIA assassin. As well, all supporting actors (such as Julia Stiles, Joan Allen, Scott Glenn, Albert Finney) give solid performances.
As with the two previous movies, the background music adds to each scene.
The DVD itself (the one released Dec. 2007) has seven extras. All of them are interesting.
Finally, some scenes employ a "shaky camera" technique. Personally, I found this interesting but some may find it distracting,
In conclusion, this is an excellent movie on which to end this trilogy. The numbers also prove this statement: this movie cost about one hundred and ten million dollars to make and the worldwide box office amount, thus far, is about four hundred and forty-three million!!

"The Bourne Ultimatum" is by far the most revealing episode of the series as Bourne continuously learns revealing bits and pieces of who he is, all while the CIA is trying to thwart his attempts by assasinating him. The action never really lets up in this movie and Matt Damon does a fanatastic acting job, as has been customary of him. In a year marred with bad "threequels" such as the SpiderMan and Pirates of the Carribean entries, this film truly shines.
This movie also shows the benefit of getting actors who can actually act in all the secondary roles.
On a side note, where do these people get the energy when they never eat or drink anything in the entire movie? I'm just saying.
The extras on the DVD are first-rate including showing how they shot the chase and fight scenes as well as giving us a world tour of all the location shoots. Obligatory director's commentary track and deleted scenes included, too.
Otherwise it's one of the best movies this year.
It's simply the final episode in the trilogy.
If you liked the first two, you'll like this one as well.
