In the first three Bourne films, there is only one explosion scene. In The Bourne Identity (2002), Bourne blows up a gas tank to distract The Professor when he tries to kill Bourne. In The Bourne Supremacy (2004), Bourne breaks a gas line and burns a magazine in a toaster to blow up Jarda's house after he calls for C.I.A. backup. In this film, Desh kills Daniels by blowing up his car which almost kills Bourne. There is another minor explosion in the chase scene where Jason Bourne is chasing Desh and Nicky. He throws an aerosol can into a fire to create a distraction. See more »
In the previous film when Bourne questions Nicky about his first operation she tells him he's never been to Berlin, it's not in the file, but when Pam Landy checks his file the first entry is Bourne's hit on Neskey in Berlin. See more »

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!
