The Bourne series has many similarities to the Terminator series: it had 3 different directors, there were four movies, the main actor in the first 3 didn't appear in the fourth one, and only one won any Oscars while the other 3 weren't even nominated. The supporting actors from the Bourne and Terminator movies (Julia Stiles as Nicky Parsons and Earl Boen as Dr. Peter Silberman respectively) are the only actors who appear on the first three films with the main actor.

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!
