Movie Type (Genre) Heading
Thriller Action - Like the first two films, this is an intense action thriller aimed at the usual action crowd and an older, smarter audience. The film's action may be too intense for younger viewers, but the audiences that made the first two films a hit should do the same here.

Critic's Review Heading

Berardinelli, Internet Critic Full Review
Very Good ...superior to its immediate predecessor but not quite as good as the original. The action is this movie is top-notch - full of suspense and kinetic energy - but the film doesn't have as much heart or emotional depth as "The Bourne Identity." As with "The Bourne Supremacy," this movie diverts so far from its "source material" that the only things retained from Ludlum's novel are the title and some of the character names.

Roger Ebert Full Review
Excellent But why, if I liked the movie so much, am I going on like this? Because the movie is complete as itself. You sit there, and the action assaults you, and using words to re-create it would be futile. What actually happens to Jason Bourne is essentially immaterial. What matters is that something must happen, so he can run away from it or toward it.

USA Today Full Review
Excellent ...easily the best action thriller of the year. Directed and edited with virtuosity, it offers two hours of non-stop excitement with not only one but two of the most breathtaking, heart-racing vehicle chase sequences ever. Sure, it's a franchise, but it's one of the rare smart ones. And though it's a genre film, it transcends the limitations and expectations associated with espionage dramas, emerging as the quintessential contemporary spy saga.

OPINION GRAPH

OPINION OVERVIEW
The following is the original "What's Worth Watching" write-up for this movie.

Moviegoer Opinions:

Based on a theater exit polling of 320 moviegoers:OUTSTANDING REVIEWS! For once the critics are right. "The Bourne Ultimatum" is A GREAT MOVIE NOT TO BE MISSED. Absolutely incredible action that's a MUST SEE ON THE BIG SCREEN. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!


D ETAILED S TORYLINE
We find Bourne living as a man without a country or a past. Subjected to brutal training he doesn't remember by people he can't identify, Bourne was turned into a sophisticated human weapon—the toughest target the CIA has ever tracked. Since he was discovered floating in the Mediterranean Sea off the coast of Italy several years ago, he has been on a desperate quest to learn who he is and discover who taught him how to kill.

After his lover, Marie, died from an assassin's bullet, however, all Bourne wanted was revenge. Once he found it, what he craved was to forever disappear and forget the life stolen from him. But a front-page story in a London newspaper that speculates about his existence ends that hope, and he finds himself once again a target.

Treadstone, the top-secret black-ops program that created this super-assassin, is now defunct. It has been reimagined as the joint Department of Defense program Blackbriar, with a new generation of trained killers—hidden from domestic or foreign oversight—at the government's disposal. To them, Bourne is a $30-million malfunctioning threat who must be taken out, once and for all. To him, they are the only link to a life he has tried in vain to forget.

Bourne has reached the end of the line. This time, he will not stop at his former masters' empty promises or even with the killing of those who relentlessly pursue him. With nothing left to lose, he will use each nuance of his training and every finely honed instinct they taught him to come after his creators and finish it all.

His quest will take him from Moscow, Paris and Madrid to London and Tangier— evading, outsmarting and outmaneuvering Blackbriar operatives, federal agents and local police every step of the way—in a desperate quest to find answers to questions that haunt him. And Bourne's journey will ultimately lead him to where it all began and where it must come to an end: the streets of New York City.
