The Bourne Ultimatum (2007)

A sequel to The Bourne Supremacy and the third film of the Bourne Trilogy, Matt Damon reprises his role as amnesiac, trained CIA assassin Jason Bourne.

Bourne is once again brought out of hiding, this time inadvertently by London-based journalist Simon Ross (Paddy Considine), trying to unveil Operation Blackbriar, an upgrade to Operation Treadstone, in a series of newspaper columns. Bourne sets up a meeting with Ross and realises instantly they're being scanned. Information from Ross stirs a new set of memories, and Bourne must finally, ultimately, uncover his dark past whilst dodging CIA's best efforts in eradicating him. Bourne has been on the run for 3 years and this time, it ends.

The best action film I watched this year. A neatly crafted plot, good mixture of action and suspense, and fine closure. Enjoyed the chasing and fighting scenes in Tangier. Don't miss it!

Rating: 3/5.
