I was really pleasantly surprised with this third film in a series. I had seen the other two Bourne movies and was prepared to compare them, expecting a standard procedure of just another genre of action choreography. The Bourne Ultimatum is a breathtaking espionage thriller with Jason Bourne (Matt Damon), a trained assassin without a country or a past. He is always a step ahead of the people who are following him. After the death of his lover Marie (played by Franke Potente), Bourne seeks revenge. He wishes to destroy his pursuers and then disappear forever until an article in a London newspaper changes everything, and he returns to the streets of New York. This film is full of surprises with a new innovative story and structure. With its intelligent espionage strategies, the audience will be wide awake the whole 111 minutes. (Geysa Wiemann)
