In all three Bourne films there is only one explosion scene. In The Bourne Identity (2002), Bourne blows up a gas tank to distract The Professor when he tries to kill Bourne. In The Bourne Supremacy (2004), Bourne breaks a gas line and burns a magazine in a toaster to blow up Jarda's house after he calls for CIA backup. In this film, Desh kills Daniels by blowing up his car which almost kills Bourne. There is another minor explosion in the chase scene where Jason Bourne is chasing Desh and Nicky. He throws an aerosol can into a fire to create a distraction. See more »
The CIA Chryslers (300M) and Bourne's Chevrolet Impala sounded like they had V8 engines. Actually the 300M and that generation of Impala were never released with a V8 engine. See more »

Paul Greengrass definitely saved the best Bourne for last! I've heard a lot of people complain about they way he filmed this movie, and some have even compared the camera style to the Blair Witch Project. All I have to say to that is...are you kidding me? Come on it was not that bad at all. I think it helps the action scenes to feel more realistic, which I would prefer over highly stylized stunt choreography. As for the rest of the movie I really didn't even notice it.
You can tell that Damon has really gotten comfortable with the role of Jason Bourne. Sometimes that can be a bad thing, but in this case its a really good thing. He really becomes Jason Bourne in this installment. Damon also has a great supporting cast in Joan Allen, Ezra Kramer, and Julia Stiles. David Strathairn was a great addition to the cast, as he added more depth to the secret CIA organization.
Even though the movie is filled with great car chases and nonstop action, they managed to stick a fair amount of character development in their with all of that going on. This film stands far above the other two Bourne movies, and is definitely one of the best movies of the 2007 summer season!
