As Pam speaks to the group assembled to track Bourne after Noah introduces her several digital clocks are briefly visible on the wall behind her (1426, 1926, 1726, 0326, 2226). She tells the agents that they are 9 hours behind the toughest target they have ever tracked. They further state that his last known location was at 1200 Zulu in London which is noon local time. 9 hours would be 2100 at night in London and Madrid. When we see Bourne in Madrid it is still light out and at best dusk with only a few lights on. None of the clocks match the correct time either in local New York time or GMT as they should read at least 2100 Zulu on one of them.. See more »

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.
