Bourne is once again brought out of hiding, this time inadvertently by London-based reporter Simon Ross who is trying to unveil Operation Blackbriar--an upgrade to Project Treadstone--in a series of newspaper columns. Bourne sets up a meeting with Ross and realizes instantly they're being scanned. Information from the reporter stirs a new set of memories, and Bourne must finally, ultimately, uncover his dark past whilst dodging The Company's best efforts in trying to eradicate him. Written by
When the CIA hacks into Simon Ross' Guardian e-mail, finding a round-trip ticket to Turin, the e-mail is presented as being sent from firstname.lastname@example.org - Adrian Spanna worked as a second unit video assist operator on the film. See more »
As Jason looks over the paper while riding the train near the beginning of the movie, we see the story he is reading. It reads, in part, "His code name was Jason Bourne, but he had many identities, each one seemingly more deadly then the next." This is a case of then/than confusion... it should read "than the next". It should however be noted that the newspaper in question, "The Guardian", used to be notorious in the UK (in the days of manual typesetting) for its spelling mistakes, leading to its nickname of "The Grauniad". It is just conceivable that this is a nod to this reputation. See more »

This is the first 10 out of 10 that I've given any movie. What made this movie so good for me? Constant action - there isn't any slow parts, great acting, smart writing. I also liked the filming style where the shakiness and different angles just made it feel like you are a part of the scene. Finally, I get to see an action movie that doesn't try to please all sectors of the public (i.e. there's no forced romance).
I liked the first two Bourne movies, but I loved this one.
Warning - after watching this movie, you will be full of adrenaline and you may want to calm down a bit before driving your car!
