When they were shooting in Tangiers, it was in the middle of the Muslim fasting month of Ramadan, where no Muslim can eat or drink during the daylight hours. Interviews in the bonus material reveal that several of the crew members were Muslims, and found it exhausting to do the movie while being unable to eat or drink. Matt Damon comments on how he would see them look 'longingly at a cup of coffee or a sandwich'. To accommodate these crew members, the remaining members of the crew tried to discreetly eat and drink.

The Sydney address for Sewell & Marbury is given as 18077 Market Street, Sydney 20031, New South Wales. Tel: 582 9232 2360. Australian street numbers start at 1 and go as high as the length of the street - the highest number in Market Street is 120. Australian post codes are 4 digits - the correct post code is 2000, or 2001 for a general post office address. Australian phone area codes are two digits - the correct area code within the country is 02. The country phone code for Australia is 61 - if the phone number is supposed to include the country code, then it should be 612. However the phone number is in the correct format for Sydney's CBD.

In order to fully appreciate 'The Bourne Ultimatum', one must have to
have seen 'The Bourne Identity' and 'The Bourne Supremacy'. Like it's
prequel's, it is slick, action packed, suspenseful and has an engaging
screenplay. I particularly loved the chase scenes shot in Tangier.
Director Greengrass just keeps the right pace without making it boring
or too fast to follow. A fine ending to a trilogy, I preferred it over
the overrated 'Lord of the Rings: The Return of The King' and the
abysmal 'X-Men: The Last Stand'. 'The Bourne Ultimatum' has done
justice to the first two films.
Cinematography deserves special mention, whether it's the shaky camera
or the zoom-lens, it certainly adds to the 'fun' of the ride supported
by brilliant background score. The dialogues and characters are very
well written. This is especially a plus because character development
seems to be lacking in action films of today. Damon again looks the
part and his acting is fantastic as he completely owns the role.
Supporting cast that boasts of talented names like Joan Allen, Paddy
Considine, Albert Finney and David Straitharn all stand out.
A brilliant conclusion, it makes the whole trilogy stand out.
Filmmakers (especially that guy who made 'X-Men: The Last stand')
should learn how to make a trilogy interesting and intelligent. 'The
Bourne Ultimatum' is an intelligent, slick, well-paced action film that
respects the trilogy.
