And the award for the most over-rated movie this year goes to...

The third Bourne instalment offers little more than its predecessors, which makes me scratch my head over the acclaimed reviews below and across the world. Bourne 3 is undoubtedly a tight, polished thriller which keeps you entertained all the way through, but it offers nothing new in the spy genre, doesn't really engage on a personal level, and is...

It's the '3rd' film and it's actually very good!

Paul Greengrass has done a great job and has become one of my favourite directors. My only criticism is, I think the shaky camera work is a bit overdone. While it didn't bother me too much it induced some motion sickness in my daughter. I fear it could have this effect on some other people too and really isn't necessary, especially in the non-action...

Four stars for slickness

Shame about the plot -- all three movies are pretty much the same! Utterly pointless, I totally disagree with anyone that says this is a "thinking person's film".

5 red hot stars

absolute cracker! best bourne yet. i love the first 2, but this one just rocks. I am not an action movie fan, but can appretiate the brilliance of these films. For an action film it is five very hot stars.

Shame on you Flicks.co.nz

Shame on you FLicks.co.nz, is your nose to far in the air to give an action movie 5 stars? You may prefer the hoity toity Wes Anderson type films, but to deny this film the fifth and most important star makes a mockery of a five star rating system. How many films this year are as good as this one? A handul at most! So I ask you Flicks.co.nz how does a film...

I only wish

Ludlum had written a fourth. Bourne out-Bonds Bond all the way! Most movie series have trouble with the difficult third album - this is arguably the best trilogy ever made. Don't wait for DVD - experience this on the big screen!

Bravura doesn't begin to describe Greengrass's skill in mounting these complex sequences...This is, simply put, some of the most accomplished filmmaking being done anywhere for any purpose...

It says something about Paul Greengrass' directing style that he's able to make a movie as fresh and frank as The Bourne Ultimatum from a genre as moldy and bombastic as the spy thriller...

A perfectly serviceable action movie…better than most, in fact. The entire premise is growing creaky, however, leading us to think we might want to leave this particular spy out in the cold a while, before he becomes completely tiresome...

The best blockbuster of the summer and the most accomplished thriller since, well, Supremacy. This is the payoff Bourne fans have been waiting for and the standard to which future blockbusters should be held...

This is a very good night out, action packed enough to keep the most befuddled of Friday late-show stragglers awake, and well constructed enough to keep the rest of us engaged and entertained to the credits...

The latest and greatest in this action franchise for grown-ups, The Bourne Ultimatum delivers paranoid suspense and exhilarating, character-driven action that makes Die Hard's antics look downright silly...
