Hollywood’s most bankable star Matt Damon returns to play Jason Bourne, the trained assassin who loses his memory. The amnesiac Bourne was last since in The Bourne Identity and The Bourne Supremacy, with the 3rd of the series continuously being based on Robert Ludlum’s novel.

Bourne is hunted down by everybody, from cops, federal officers to Interpol agents, when all he wanted to do is to remember the past he has left behind, and the self he is starting to remember.

After watching this movie, you may be convinced that you are being ‘watched’ all the time, as the CIA keeps all phone calls, movements, and past records closely under surveillance. There is no privacy!

There is never one boring or dull moment in the whole of 112 minutes, as Bourne plays the escaping game and psychological warfare with those who have made him forgotten who he is. There is a good mix of chase scenes, clever lines, and manipulative cat and mouse games. A well crafted masterpiece of intelligence and action, it does not require sex to sell unlike most other thrillers.

Paul Greengrass, who last directed United 93, makes this a never-ending adrenalin pumping piece. Bourne Ultimatum is easily the best of the three, with wide critical acclaim and sounding box office returns. If you wonder if you are able to understand the movie without watching the first two, yes you can.

Matt Damon keeps his shirt on, and has proven to Hollywood that he can be the next action hero with brawns, brain and charisma. More superior than Supremacy, this Bourne is THE Bourne.
