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

Horrible review. The entire contents of this article have only 5 sentences that actually review the film, and they do so through a hokey analogy that

Agreed, horrible review. His contempt for the action genre in general is incredibly obvious. Bourne is a spy yet Jonathan finds it unrealistic that Bourne is fluent in other languages. This is absolutely absurd. One of my best friends is fluent in 4 languages (English, Italian, Spanish & French) and he has a normal 9 to 5 job. Is it really so hard to believe that one of our governments top spies would be trained in multiple languages? I would think being fluent in multiple languages would be a requirement for such a position. Its simply common sense yet not to Jonathan.

He also finds it unbelievable that Borne can travel around as easily as he does even when we have been shown, many times over, how many different passports Bourne has access to.

Lets face it, even the best action films require a little bit of suspension of disbelief. Well, its obvious at this point that Jonathan is completely incapable of doing just that. He was convinced after the first 5 minutes that he hated this film and thus spent the remaining hour and 50 minutes actually looking for faults instead of just enjoying the film and the best he could come up with is Bourne being multi-lingual and traveling around too easily. Pathetic.

Don't get me wrong, were all entitled to our opinions. Jonathan's is just severely flawed on multiple levels. He should just stay away from action films altogether.

we know many people who can talk in 12 to 20 language in india. you don't know anything about this world homie. get a life. you should know that most language in Europe is so similar. I know 5 language. shut up cause nearly 2% of all movies are realistic. if you have a brain then appreciate others work. or if you can't then don't watch the movie.
