Top Critic Reviews
Fresh: I must have breathed during The Bourne Ultimatum because I didn't pass out in my seat -- but I'm sure those were bruises on my throat. Gripping? Yes.
- Amy Biancolli, Houston Chronicle, Friday, August 3, 2007
Fresh: While the crunchy fights and unflagging pace ensure this delivers as genre spectacle, the muddy ethics also make for a pleasing contrast with standard-issue wham-bammery.
- Ben Walters, Time Out, Thursday, November 17, 2011
Fresh: Damon lends an air of conscious integrity to the part, a quality of reflective introspection that acts as an amazingly effective ballast against the complete implausibility of his continued survival.
- Carina Chocano, Los Angeles Times, Thursday, August 2, 2007
It allows itself to be a lot more fun than the Supremacy, but it lacks a truly powerful villain that would allow Jason Bourne to truly break free. Aside from that it's really entertaining and more like the first one in terms of style, but doesn't quite get there 100%. This has a lot of great realistic action and solidifies the series as an important part of American Cinema. Matt Damon is a perfect hero, both troubled and genuinely good. It manages to be smart, good looking and entertaining all in one.
