This week's reviewed movie is:
Bourne Ultimatum

Gene the Barber
Snick the Sidekick

Bourne Ultimatum is a physics lesson wrapped up in an espionage thriller with plenty of momentum. And when the director yells action, he means it.

Though this threquel will bring closure to the franchise, making Matt Damon a hero, I have a feeling Jason Bourne will find a way to return just one more time.

This is  nearly two hours of edge-of-your-seat pulse-pounding excitement.
Will Jason Bourne claim his identity?

Yes, it's another threquel. Actual stunts, not CGI, highlight this old-fashion spy yarn filmed entirely with a hand-held camera in exotic locations.

Yeah, you've seen it all before, but not done with such artistry.

It's situation suspense in the hands of a master -- well-played and well-directed.
Matt Damon is back in the super-spy game for the third tense, nervy, and dazzling time, starring again as Jason Bourne, the renegade  CIA-trained hitman who is being hunted across three continents by a new breed of government bad guy, who are out to kill him.

He's still trying to unravel the secrets of his famously lost identity.

It's a real thinking man's action movie.
