Oh Jason Bourne. Never can get enough, can you? I’ve been through the first two films this week, and now it’s time to cap it off with the finale and what some people consider the best piece of the franchise.
Ultimatum takes off where Supremacy leaves. This time, Bourne is again taken out of hiding when a newspaper reporter begins to publish articles on Bourne, Treadstone, and its upgrade, Blackbriar. Pam Landy (Joan Allen) and Nicky Parsons (Julia Stiles) are back as well as some familiar faces via flashback. Bourne’s mission this time is to find out how he got started, where it all began. So this time, Bourne’s coming home to America. NYC chase scene in 5, 4, 3, 2…
Is it the best of the trilogy? I’m still not sure, but it does fit in perfectly. I seriously, have no qualms with anything in the movie. Many things could have been worse, but the filmmakers resisted. For example, they could’ve made the tension between Jason and Nicky into a full blown romance, but decided against it. The villains are always buried in the good organizations and Ultimatum is not exception. Great closure at the end, yet still keeps it going. Fantastic series, a must watch if you haven’t already.
My Rating: B+
