Armed with a license to kill, Secret Agent James Bond sets out on his first mission as 007, and must defeat a private banker to terrorists in a high stakes game of poker at Casino Royale, Montenegro, but things are not what they seem.
Bourne is once again brought out of hiding, this time inadvertently by London-based reporter Simon Ross who is trying to unveil Operation Blackbriar--an upgrade to Project Treadstone--in a series of newspaper columns. Bourne sets up a meeting with Ross and realizes instantly they're being scanned. Information from the reporter stirs a new set of memories, and Bourne must finally, ultimately, uncover his dark past whilst dodging The Company's best efforts in trying to eradicate him.Written by
If you look in the mirror in the scene where Nicky is dyeing her hair, there is a brief shot of a Jason Bourne themed Guess Who. This product was released soon after the film. See more »
When Bourne phones Pamela Landy in her office and Vosen's team is listening in, Landy tells Bourne a birth date, which is really code for his target address. Bourne then uses Landy to lure Vosen and his team out of the building, giving Bourne a chance to break in and steal files. Bourne calls Vosen to tell him what he did. Wills, Vosen's assistant, calls him while looking a Bourne's personal file and notices the birth date Landy gave Bourne was incorrect. Wills tells Vosen the same fake birth date they both heard in the original live call. Vosen immediately recognizes it as code for the training facility address, where Bourne is headed, yet he fails to do so earlier. Probably a screenwriting gimmick to give Bourne a way of stealing the files. See more »

Having not seen the previous two in the trilogy of Bourne movies, I was a little reluctant to watch The Bourne Ultimatum.
However it was a very thrilling experience and I didn't have the problem of not understanding what was happening due to not seeing the first two films. Each part of the story was easy to understand and I fell in love with The Bourne Ultimatum before it had reached the interval! I don't think I have ever watched such an exquisitely made, and gripping film, especially an action film. Since I usually shy away from action and thriller type movies, this was such great news to me. Ultimatum is one of the most enthralling films, it grabs your attention from the first second till the last minute before the credits roll.
Matt Damon was simply fantastic as his role as Jason Bourne. I've heard a lot about his great performances in the Bourne 1+2, and now, this fabulous actor has one more to add to his list. I look forward to seeing more of his movies in the future.
The stunts were handled with style - each one was done brilliantly and I was just shocked by the impressiveness of this movie. Well done. Was the above comment useful to you?
