Bourne travels the world, shaking off the FBI and its hitmen everywhere, who apparently have learned nothing [and never seem to learn anything] from past mistakes. A simplistic action film that adds nothing at all and was therefore completely unnecessary. The shaky handheld camera images make me wonder what happened to the steadycam. Do you want a headache? Go see this! I can't think of any other reason...

Yep, this third part (with Matt Damon again in top form) also meets the high expectations. The closer Bourne gets to his goal, the more hounded he feels, but that makes sense with a supporting cast that this time features cannons David Strathairn, Scott Glenn and Albert Finney (plus a short scene with Daniel Brühl in a role played in The Bourne identity was played by another actor, I think), and the scene at Waterloo Station is wonderfully exciting and inventive. The only downside is the camera work during, for example, the chase in (and on top of) Tangier and the ensuing fight that ends in a shower cubicle; it may be the intention of Greengrass to draw the viewer into the action with such a hand-held camera and nervous editing, but it just annoys me. Fortunately, that's not enough to stop me from giving this part the maximum score as well. Together these three films have set a new standard for serious action films in my opinion.

And part 3 only purely to conclude the trilogy, and also just that and not because I liked the other two parts so much.

Part 3 continues directly with an open line from part 2, in this case Bourne himself, because in part 2 we only saw how the filth within the 'agency' cleaned itself up. But hey, dirt runs down the hill they say, and there's another busybody who thinks things should be solved, something that doesn't seem to mix with Bourne's goal of still finding answers about himself. Joan Allen is fine in her role as is Strathairn and Finney is always good to watch. And of course there are again a few challenging fights like this time with Desh.

But yeah, it's Bourne, it's Greengrass, it's a certain style and concept, and it's hysterical and over the top in my opinion. Gang is everything seems to apply mainly to the first half hour, the soundtrack is less present than last time, but the camera work and editing are just as busy. Again everything looks terribly easy, once again there is a chase scene that can better be called a 'demoltion derby' and it is bizarre what the rolling stock can withstand. As far as I'm concerned, the ending is one in the category that it couldn't get any crazier, what a hassle.

I'm glad that this trilogy is over for a rating and comment here, even though I started part 1 with the hope and expectation that I would like it better than the first time. It's certainly not bad within the genre, I simply don't like it.
