Village Voice
Bravura doesn't begin to describe Greengrass's skill in mounting these complex sequences...This is, simply put, some of the most accomplished filmmaking being done anywhere for any purpose.

A spectacular windup toy of a thriller -- a contraption made by an artist.

The Hollywood Reporter
Audiences will eat it up: This is a postmillennial spy-action movie pitched to a large international audience. You hardly need subtitles.

Variety
A pounding, pulsating thriller that provides an almost constant adrenaline surge for nearly two hours.

Chicago Tribune
This is the most satisfying thriller of the year, capping the Bourne trilogy.

You come out of the movie both excited and soothed, as if your body had been worked on by felt-covered drumsticks.

Newsweek
For action junkies, The Bourne Ultimatum will be like a hit of pure meth. It's bravura filmmaking in the jittery, handheld, frenetically edited Paul Greengrass style.

L.A. Weekly
Faster and, if possible, furiouser than its predecessors.

Greengrass and co. may have made one of the best action movies in recent memory.

The Bourne Ultimatum provides a lot more suspense and tension than "Transformers" could hope for.
