[Greengrass'] skillful use of handheld cameras and rapid fire editing help make this a truly visceral experience.

t's full of tension, but it's also disturbing on another level: it's hard not to be reminded of recent events.

Director Paul Greengrass returns to guide the cast as they run furiously around the streets of London, Madrid, Tangiers and New York, and the genre material benefits greatly from his paranoid documentary style.

Unsuspecting punters may think, 'Well, I've seen the first two, so I might as well find out how the story ends' -- but, if so, they're going to be disappointed.

If it feels like a non-stop demolition derby, at least there's a responsible driver at the wheel. The British director Paul Greengrass makes everything seem more plausible with twitchy camerawork and even twitchier editing.

When camera operators are moving around a set more than the actors, it may be time to scale back a bit. Fortunately, Bourne finds some sort of violent pick-me-up at each stop on his worldwide vengeance tour.

I'm sure a lot of people will find it thrilling. Me, I just wanted to get headache [or] seasickness tablets.

Jason Bourne, the character, may not be as memorable as some other action hero icons, but he has qualities that impress.

The story of Jason Bourne is the story of the spy movie all grown up.

Anything James Bond can do, it seems, Jason Bourne can do, too.

Of the huge summer threequels, without question it's the one delivered with urgency.

Occasionally the fights and chases take on a chaotic quality that's far from crystal clear. Yet somehow it still works, because the director has created such a pervasive atmosphere of restlessness and tension that you find yourself in Bourne's skin.

It all would have been my kind of fun if I could have had a better look at it.

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.
