    The Bourne Ultimatum (2007)

    Director: Paul Greengrass
    Lead actors: Matt Damon, Julia Stiles, David Strathairn, Paddy Considine, Albert Finney and Joan Allen
    Genre: Action
             After Jason Bourne surpassed of getting away from the people tracking him down. He managed to go in Paris, France. Bourne meets his girlfriend's brother Martin Kreutz and relayed the bad news, that she was shot and died in India. The CIA agents continued to manhunt Jason Bourne, since the Treadstone operation and the Black biar was revealed by Simon Ross. In some way, it was connected in conspiracy and lead to looking for Bourne.  

              After having shot by Kirill, Bourne runs for his life in Moskova (Moscow), Russia. He showed his mortal combat-like with the policemen and pleads off.

             In Turin Italy, Simon Ross (Paddy ConsidIne) met somebody in a restaurant. The good thing in this story, they know all the informations about their target, like Jason Bourne. Bourne met the brother of Marie, Martin Kreutz and he elaborates the cause of death of his sister. The emotions were so instense between the two.

              Simon Ross is a British national and worked as a reporter. He knows about Bourne and the Blackbriar operation. They meet in Waterloo station to discuss the essential informations. Bourne was really good in making technical calls through landline, while the CIA is tracking down Ross with all the CCTV was managedly controlled in the station. Jason had shown the accuracy of his movement and instructions to Bristish reporter. Ross died for distrusting Bourne; he started to moved and killed by an assassin Paz of Blackbriar.

              Meeting in a restaurant is odd to talk about the situation. I think Von (David Strathairn) and Pam (Joan Allen) can do it in close door, probably in the headquater's office. Along the course of direction, it showed an intermittent flashback of memories by Bourne.

              I like the language of directions, so accurate. The scenario mislead the back-up plan from Blackbiar and the police patrol in the vicinity of Neal Daniels' office in Madrid, Spain. Wherein, Julia Stiles comes in the picture, she helped Bourne to locate Daniel in Tangiere, Morocco.

              The asset Desh Bouksani was send to terminate Daniels, he succeed with his mission. The next target is Nicky since she deviated the mission, the flow of the film as directed was incredibly executed in different setting of the places.

              Jason portrayed excellent in his stunts, running over the wall embedded with broken glasses. As he jumps off from the buildings to save Nicky from the asset named as Desh. During the combat actions between Bourne and Desh, it was the first time that Julia Stiles showed her manly stunts. Noah Vosen back from his office, I find not real in opening the bolt uttering his name as the code to look for the secret files. It seems the metal box is not an automated.

              The movie had shown different ways of communicating with their lines, as seen between Pam and Bourne in New York City. The real truth unmask on the last part of the movie, Bourne confronted Dr. Hirsch (Albert Finney) as the one responsible for having behavior modification for Treadstone operation and Pam found the anomalies behind the upgraded Treadstone  operation as Blackbriar. Jason Bourne escapes from the scene when he jumped in East River. 
    The distinct music was still used as their soundtrack, the places were really new for the eyes of the viewers and definitely, they will appreciate it.
