Film of the Day #84/ 300
In 2007, Matt Damon and Paul Greengrass delivered the finest installment in the Bourne trilogy. A breathless masterpiece that is impeccably directed, The Bourne Ultimatum is an intelligent, finely tuned, pulse-pounding, brain-rattling thriller that redefined the action genre. The Bourne Ultimatum gives you the satisfaction of seeing traditional genre conventions fulfilled, then exceeded. A relentless and irresistible rush of action and suspense, The Bourne Ultimatum is smart, sharp, and stylish. With incredible chases, believable fights, unbearable tension and a breakneck pacing, Ultimatum is the perfect way to close out such a spectacular and influential franchise. Whether it is the final chapter or not, still remains to be seen, but if this really is the last we've seen of Jason Bourne, at least he can head off into retirement knowing that he's earned a well-deserved rest.
