Critic Reviews for The Bourne Ultimatum

All Critics (239) | Top Critics (48) | Fresh (224) | Rotten (15) | DVD (28)

Bourne -- or whatever his name really is -- is such a resourceful and reckless agent of chaos, we thrill to him despite the fact that he's officially a non-entity.

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.

Not only far and away this summer's best three-peat, it's a pulse-pounding peak to Matt Damon's spy trilogy.

Watching The Bourne Ultimatum is like being strapped to a vibrating bed set on high for two hours in a cheap motel.

A great action movie, exhilarating and neatly crafted, the kind of picture that will still look good 20 or 30 years from now.

We've waited all summer for a wild ride to grab us with more than jolts. Now it's here. Hang on.

Rolling Stone
Top Critic

Nothing is overplayed, from the scary surveillance tracking methods to the high-level corruption, making this a superbly crafted masterclass in intelligent action film-making.

Radio Times

It may seem odd to praise a big-budget action flick for its maturity, but Paul Greengrass' The Bourne Ultimatum unequivocally proves that a summer blockbuster needn't be brainless to be exciting.

Metro Times (Detroit, MI)

You know, I used to think Matt Damon was kinda like a Streisand, but he's rocking the shit in this one.

Full Review… | November 3, 2012

Beneath the heart-racing action, Ultimatum strains to show how aggressive Bush-era tactics lead to our moral ruin.

Time Out Chicago

The third Bourne movie keeps us enthralled by tapping into the surveillance-induced paranoia of the CCTV era.

We need an action hero to fit the times. Someone confused. Jason Bourne.

The Bourne Ultimatum is a thrilling and riveting action movie, played out on a global backdrop and a liberal political tone.

Greengrass comes full circle from the War on Terror film that bit its tongue to the popcorn flick that speaks volumes.

The best action film so far this summer.

Boston Phoenix

Um desfecho à altura do ótimo padrão estabelecido pela trilogia, ainda surpreende graças a uma inteligente estrutura que, brincando com a linha narrativa da série, comprova o cuidadoso trabalho dos realizadores em sua concepção.

Cinema em Cena

The Bourne Ultimatum keeps the pedal to the floor and burns serious rubber.

A significant achievement, held back but not much diminished by the unavoidable excesses of the genre.

two hours of powerful action and ultimate escapism

Ultimatum isn't just the best film of the franchise - it's the best action film of 2007.

Watertown Daily Times

As spy flicks go, The Bourne Ultimatum is the perfect chaser to this successful series.

Full Review… | July 22, 2008
Paste Magazine

It twists and turns without losing its footing, and its hero, an international man of mystery even to himself, is always ahead of the game, daring his would-be assailants - and the audience - to guess his next move. The trick is to try and keep up.

April 10, 2008
San Francisco Examiner

The Bourne Ultimatum rencontre, et surpasse même, haut la main les standards de qualité déjà très élevés fixés par ses prédécesseurs.

Full Review… | March 27, 2008

Don't get me wrong, I love these films. But they really are just mindless action movies -- just done INCREDIBLY well.

Audience Reviews for The Bourne Ultimatum


saw this one too

Bob Stinson

Super Reviewer


The final installment of the Bourne franchise sees Matt Damon finally discovering who he is and who's behind this fine mess he's in. I must admit, I found this film an odd one. The usual formula of a thriller involves the story being set up for the first two thirds of the film, and the last half hour climaxes with a frenetic action set piece. In The Bourne Ultimatum, it's the other way round! The first hour and a half is more of Greengrass' wobbly cam following an earnest looking Damon as he runs through interchangeable corridors, chases down generic bad guys and speeds through traffic. There is literally no plot til the last half hour. It reminded me of The Matrix trilogy in that the second film seemed irrelevant, and the two sequels could easily have been compressed into one superior film. But as it stands, it's an entertaining enough thriller which ties up the story satisfactorily (if unsurprisingly) and at least the direction contained more drama and less seasickness than the second (the climactic car chase is actually very impressive indeed.) Still not as good as the first but it will please fans of the series.

One of the best action flicks I've ever seen. From the moment the movie starts until it's jolting end, you are on the ride of your life. Damon, who I would have never imagined as an Action Star, has solidified his place among one of the greats

It's a fantastic third installment (which is rarity in cinemas) Matt Damon is brilliant as Jason Bourne in this new edition to the Bourne saga. The Bourne Ultimatum fires on all cylinders with more thrills and more action sequences that is well directed, from Paul Greengrass, and well crafted. 4.5/5
