In this third (and final?) chapter Jason Bourne (Damon) continues his search for clues to to his past with Treadstone, the mothballed facility where he was trained. Now CIA official Vosen (Strathairn) wants to revive the project, and assigns agent Lundy (Allen) to eliminate Bourne. Meanwhile, Bourne is outmaneuvering cops, feds, spooks, and Interpol agents in Moscow, Paris, Madrid, Tangier, London, and New York. Smart, tense, and frenetic, with excellent performances from all involved. The only drawback is the confusion- and nausea-inducing camera work during the action sequences.
http://braidedthreads.blogspot.com/2008/09/bourne-again.html ... This film promises to reaveal much of what has been hidden through the series--enough to satisfy us, and bring some things full circle. It reemphasizes some of Bourne's culpability in the ruthless person he became, and gives him the chance, if not to redeem himself, at least to be able to grow into someone different. He shows considerable restrain in this movie, as if to hold back the machinery of Bourne-the-killer, who is able to act violently without regret or remorse. He is both capable of violence, and capable of choice, and it is fascinating to watch the intersection of these dual impulses.
You're giving us ultimatums? Yipperbore at 2008-03-10 16:01:49
How is this for an ultimatum.. give me my money back or else!! Unfortunately I am not sure who to hold accountable for this mess. I can't blame Damon he is like the obidient dog that sits under the table waiting for scraps. I can't blame Julie Stiles for toally being mis-cast (note to Julie, stick to bad dance movies from not on). Guess I have to blame myself for seeing this. Guess I owe myself some money.
