Information about The Bourne Ultimatum

The Bourne Ultimatum is a 2007 (12 years ago) spy movie directed by Paul Greengrass and loosely based on the Robert Ludlum novel of the same name. The movie is a sequel to The Bourne Supremacy (4 walls) and the third movie of the Bourne Series. It stars Matt Damon (4 walls) reprising his role as Ludlum's signature character, amnesiac CIA assassin Jason Bourne. The movie continues the saga of Jason Bourne as he escapes from authorities in Moscow, Russia, and follows the character as he travels to Paris, London, Madrid, Tangier, and New York City to uncover his real identity, while the CIA continues to send assassins after him. The movie co-starred Julia Stiles, David Strathairn, Scott Glenn, Paddy Considine, Edgar Ramirez, Albert Finney, and Joan Allen. The script was by Tony Gilroy, Scott Z. Burns, George Nolfi, and an uncredited Tom Stoppard. The producers were Patrick Crowley, Frank Marshall, Paul L. Sandberg, and Doug Liman, who directed the first Bourne movie, The Bourne Identity.

The Bourne Ultimatum was produced by Universal pictures (wallpaper) and was released on Aug. 3, 2007 (12 years ago) in North America, where it grossed $69.3 million in ticket sales in its first weekend of release, making it the highest Aug. opening in the U.S. Although all three movies have been commercially successful and critically acclaimed, The Bourne Ultimatum is the only movie in the trilogy to have been nominated for an Academy Award, winning all three of its nominations for Best movie Editing, Best Sound, and Best Sound Editing at the 80th Academy Awards.

Plot

scapes.

Six weeks later, Simon Ross, a security correspondent for The Guardian, meets with someone in Turin, to discuss Treadstone. Bourne meets Ross at Waterloo Station in London after having read Ross' article in The Guardian that went into detail about Bourne, Treadstone, and "Operation Blackbriar." As Ross is told by Bourne to meet him at London Waterloo station in London, CIA officer Noah Vosen orders Paz, an assassin, to go after Ross, but intervention by Bourne stops that. Thinking that Bourne is the source, Vosen orders Paz to kill both Bourne and Ross, and in a moment of panic, Ross runs into view of Paz's sniper rifle and is shot dead. In the ensuing chaos, Bourne slips in unnoticed and takes Ross' notes and discovers that his source for the article was Neal Daniels, the Madrid CIA station chief.

The CIA also discovers that Ross' source was Daniels and sends a team out to raid his office. Bourne arrives first and finds nothing, as Daniels has already left. He subdues the CIA team as they storm the office. Nicky Parsons then arrives, and she gives the all-clear to Vosen and Deputy Director Pamela Landy, giving both her and Bourne time to escape, whilst the second team meant to arrest Bourne is captured by Spanish police. Parsons tells Bourne that Daniels is in Tangier and the two of them take the ferry to the Moroccan port. On arrival, Parsons logs in and finds the CIA has assigned Desh Bouksani to assassinate Daniels. Desh is given further orders to kill Parsons after Daniels. Bourne attempts to stop Desh, but Desh successfully detonates a bomb that kills Daniels. As Desh attempts to kill Parsons, Bourne attacks and strangles him after a long and brutal fight. Bourne has Parsons dye and cut her hair (much as he did with Marie) and puts her on a bus to escape.

At the Tangier morgue, Bourne examines Daniels' charred papers and finds the address of the CIA substation in New York City. Bourne takes a flight to New York City and calls Deputy Director Pamela Landy from a building across the street (recreating the final scene from The Bourne Supremacy (4 walls)). Landy begins walking outside and Bourne texts her to meet at a certain place, knowing the CIA is monitoring the communication. As the CIA teams and Vosen converge on Landy's position, Bourne breaks into Vosen's office and steals classified Blackbriar documents. Bourne then engages in a car chase around New York City with CIA agents and escapes.

Landy and Bourne meet at the Treadstone R&D facility. Landy begins faxing the documents to an unknown receiver while Bourne goes downstairs to find his past. He meets Dr. Albert Hirsch, who ran Treadstone's psychological conditioning program. Bourne was their first experimental conditioning subject. With Hirsch's help, Bourne remembers that he volunteered for the program and killed a man in the same room. CIA agents then break in and start shooting. Bourne escapes and jumps into the East River as Vosen tries to shoot him.

Images of Bourne's unmoving body floating in the river are interspersed with images (wallpaper) of Nicky watching a news report, sometime later, noting the exposure of Blackbriar, the arrests of Hirsch and Vosen, the newsflash that Ezra Kramer is the subject of a United States Senate hearing regarding his conduct, and that David Webb, alias Jason Bourne, was shot and fell into the East River but his body has not been recovered, even after a three-day search, at which point Nicky smiles realizing that Bourne is still alive. In the final moments of the film, Bourne's limp, drifting body springs to life and he is shown swimming away in the East River.

Production

The Bourne Ultimatum was filmed at the Pinewood Studios in London and in multiple locations around the world, including Tangier, London, Paris, Madrid (as itself and double for Turin), Berlin (as double for Moscow), New York City, and other locations in the U.S.

Reception

The Bourne Ultimatum earned $69.3 million during its opening weekend at the box office, a record for a single opening in Aug. and $441.2 million worldwide as of dec. 14, 2007 (12 years ago). As of Mar. 2009 (10 years ago), the movie garners a 93% "Certified Fresh" rating (203 positive out of 218 reviews total) at Rotten Tomatoes, higher than either predecessor. The movie had a rating of 85/100 on Metacritic, again higher than the first two films. At the end of its theatrical release, the movie grossed at total of $227,471,070 in the U.S., making it the highest grossing movie in the series.

Like its predecessor, The Bourne Supremacy (4 walls), the movie was criticized for its shaky camera work, as Richard Corliss of Time magazine, in an otherwise positive review, wondered "why, in the chat scenes, the camera is afflicted with Parkinson's? The movie frame trembles, obscures the speaker with the listener's shoulder, annoys viewers and distracts them from the content of the scene."

In the British press, the inclusion of a fictional journalist from the real British paper The Guardian and scenes set in the United Kingdom (particularly Waterloo railway station) were commented upon. In particular, that newspaper's reviewer noted that "dodging bullets from a CIA sniper... is the sort of thing which happens to us Guardian journalists all the time."
