I don’t know the reason for so many negative reviews for this movie. Well, I found it entertaining. It is not an extremely good movie but it is not bad either. It has several very heartwarming and emotional scenes that made it not so funny for a comedy film.
Matt Damon delivers his best performance as Jason Bourne who is hunted by the people who made him what he is. He has the conviction and swelling desire of the troubled assassin. Having lost his memory and the one person he loved, he is undeterred by the barrage of bullets and a new generation of highly-trained killers.
The Bourne Ultimatum is undoubtedly the best of the series but of course you have to watch the first two series Bourne Identity and Bourne Supremacy to appreciate this film more because each new series starts where each earlier series ends.
