The Bourne Ultimatum



Reviewer's grade: A


Jason Bourne (Matt Damon) is starting to get the picture: He is a CIA-controlled, government kill puppet who has given up his life to serve his country.


What he doesn't know "? his real identity, past life, past loves and program particulars "? are starting to come into focus. Too bad that the CIA "? or at least Noah Vosen (David Strathairn) "? wants him dead to keep the program out of the public eye. Problem: Some info was leaked to a British reporter. Solution: Kill everyone. Vosen is opposed by good-girl CIA fox Pamela Landy (Joan Allen), who wants to bring Bourne home and put an end to the dark project.


Meanwhile, Bourne has to fight other assassins in cool European places like busy British train stations and crowded Moroccan alleys before coming back to the U.S. to face his past and the present plot to put his lights out. Guns, chases, gizmos, code words, secret hideouts, wiretaps, explosions. Don't you love summer movies? PG-13
