I’m a big fan of the first two Bourne films and I’ve been looking forward to the latest installment for some time now, but there’s always that concern that a sequel will end up being a huge pile of suckage when it finally hits the movie screen. Even when the first sequel ends up being as good, if not better than, the original as is the case with The Bourne Supremacy there’s still the potential it could all go horribly wrong with the next installment.
Fortunately it appears that The Borne Ultimatum has avoided that fate as it’s currently got a 90% positive rating at Rotten Tomatoes.com (the Cream of the Crop reviews pegs it at 100% at the moment). While I find individual movie reviews to be unreliable in determining whether or not to see a film the group consensus that comes out of sites like Rotten Tomatoes tends to be a pretty good indicator of movie quality. I’ve yet to see a film that good trashed at Rotten Tomatoes that I ended up enjoying.
So I’ll have to make plans to go see Jason Bourne’s latest attempt to figure out just who the hell he is. No idea when I’ll get the chance, but I’ll have to make the time sometime soon.
