Storyline

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.

Goofs

Nicky is willing to ruin her life for helping Jason supposedly because they had a close if not intimate relationship before his amnesia. However in Supremacy she had no emotional reaction whatsoever to sending kill orders on Jason and his 'new' girlfriend Marie, was adamant at the Berlin meeting the objective should be "killing Bourne" , and even when terrified he was going to kill her inexplicably failed to mention it.

May be the best action movie I've ever seen
14 August 2007 | by bobbo72See all my reviews

This is the first 10 out of 10 that I've given any movie. What made this movie so good for me? Constant action - there isn't any slow parts, great acting, smart writing. I also liked the filming style where the shakiness and different angles just made it feel like you are a part of the scene. Finally, I get to see an action movie that doesn't try to please all sectors of the public (i.e. there's no forced romance).

I liked the first two Bourne movies, but I loved this one.

Warning - after watching this movie, you will be full of adrenaline and you may want to calm down a bit before driving your car!
