The Bourne Ultimatum
This third instalment of the gripping thriller series is a corker. Matt Damon reprises his role as lethal assassin Jason Bourne, and this time, a meeting with a journalist awakens the former hitman’s memories. Once again, he embarks on a deadly game of catand-mouse as he attempts to uncover who he really is, why he became embroiled in Project Treadstone and why the people who employed him now want him dead. Many ‘threequels’ are mere rehashes of old successes, but this surpassed all expectations. Damon is breathtaking in the leading role, and Paul Greengrass directs with aplomb.
