We caught a viewing of The Borne Ultimatum this past weekend and I’ve been kicking around how to write a review of it ever since. The short version goes like this:
- Having lost his girlfriend in the last movie and continuing to suffer from flashbacks about his past, Bourne sets out to finally discover just who the hell he used to be while the CIA decides he’s dangerous and tries to kill him. Lots of very awesome ass kicking ensues.
That’s all you really need to know other than if you liked the first two movies then you’ll probably like the latest one as well. I loved the first two movies and I loved this one though I do have one complaint I’d like to voice.
It was that annoying and I don’t recall the first two movies being that annoying though in retrospect that’s probably because my last viewings of either of them were on a TV where the shaky cam effect isn’t quite so jarring. Other than that, Matt Damon continues to be able to say a whole hell of a lot without opening his mouth with little more than a glare and pretty much everyone turns in a decent enough performance to allow you to switch off your mind for a couple of hours and enjoy the beat down taking place on screen. Well worth the price of admission.
