At the end of The Bourne Supremacy, when Jason is talking on the phone with Pamela Landy (and subsequently walking through the streets of New York), it is clearly summer time, with the trees in full bloom and people in short-sleeve shirts. During the middle of The Bourne Ultimatum (when this scene is re-shot as a significant part of Ultimatum's plot structure), it is now suddenly winter, with Pamela Landy having to wear a heavy coat, gloves, and a scarf outside, and there is clearly snow on the ground.

Perhaps One of the Greatest Motion Picture Trilogies of our Time
I don't hand out ten star ratings easily. A movie really has to impress me, and The Bourne Ultimatum has gone far beyond that. Furthermore, this trilogy has come together so nicely, that I believe it to be one of the greatest motion picture trilogies of our time. Though all three films could not be any more different from the Ludlum novels, they still stand as a powerful landmark in cinematic achievement. The Bourne Ultimatum made me want to cry that the series was complete, yet I could not even attempt to stop smiling for hours.
From the moment that the opening title appeared, I knew we were in for a ride. Paul Greengrass has done it again. Everything we love from the previous Bourne films is here once again: the action, the dialogue, and of course the shaky camera. However for me, that last one was never a problem. I think it adds to the suspense.
I will be back to see this film several times before it is released on DVD, simply because it is genius. It is a perfectly satisfying conclusion, and should stand the test of time as a fantastic movie, and altogether, an unforgettable trilogy.
