Most fax machines scan before sending. All Vosen has to do is press cancel and the fax would not be sent. In fact, as he enters the room the fax can be heard to make the first beep of the sending tone, indicating that it's only just beginning to try and send the fax. However, being a high-up member of management in his 50s or so, it is entirely possible that Vosen has no idea how to work a fax machine and so might think it had already sent. Also, this model of fax machine scans with the pages facing down, so he would not see what was scanned until the pages came out. Since they were put in face-up Landy would be scanning blank paper (if there was nothing on the back). See more »

Having not seen the previous two in the trilogy of Bourne movies, I was a little reluctant to watch The Bourne Ultimatum.
However it was a very thrilling experience and I didn't have the problem of not understanding what was happening due to not seeing the first two films. Each part of the story was easy to understand and I fell in love with The Bourne Ultimatum before it had reached the interval! I don't think I have ever watched such an exquisitely made, and gripping film, especially an action film. Since I usually shy away from action and thriller type movies, this was such great news to me. Ultimatum is one of the most enthralling films, it grabs your attention from the first second till the last minute before the credits roll.
Matt Damon was simply fantastic as his role as Jason Bourne. I've heard a lot about his great performances in the Bourne 1+2, and now, this fabulous actor has one more to add to his list. I look forward to seeing more of his movies in the future.
The stunts were handled with style - each one was done brilliantly and I was just shocked by the impressiveness of this movie. Well done. Was the above comment useful to you?
