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.

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.

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.

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

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.

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

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

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.

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

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.

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