The Bourne Ultimatum

The Bourne Ultimatum
Bourne, Jason Bourne is back for the third, allegedly final, and judging by early reviews, best installment of the trilogy. He is still tracking down his past, desperate to find out who he is and what he was before he became what he is now. The CIA is still after him, wanting to end his chapter for good, although there are elements who want to keep him alive. Jason leads them on a globe-hopping spree around the world as he moves closer to the truth, and they throw the best they have at him... with little success. Enjoy.

Natalie Bosman quote iconIt's rare that a sequel can better the original. This is unfortunately true of the Bourne series.
Sunday Times
Barry Ronge quote iconIt is as fresh and exciting as when first we met Jason Bourne, but this time, the energy's unflagging and the technique dazzling.
Megan Kakora quote iconThe Bourne Ultimatum might not be the best action-thriller ever made, but it's a thrilling ride, so hold onto your seats.
