  • Steven Rea

    Unstoppable fun.

    Philadelphia Inquirer Full Review
  • Claudia Puig

    The best action thriller of the year.

    USA Today Full Review
  • James Dyer

    The best blockbuster of the summer and the most accomplished thriller since, well, Supremacy. This is the payoff Bourne fans have been waiting for and the standard to which future blockbusters should be held.

    Empire Full Review
  • Stephanie Zacharek

    A great action movie, exhilarating and neatly crafted, the kind of picture that will still look good 20 or 30 years from now. Full Review
  • Nathan Lee

    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.

    Village Voice Full Review
  • Manohla Dargis

    Mr. Greengrass knows how to do his job, and there’s no one in Hollywood right now who does action better, who keeps the pace going so relentlessly, without mercy or letup, scene after hard-rocking scene.

    The New York Times Full Review
  • Dana Stevens

    Feels fresher, leaner, and faster than any action movie in years.

    Slate Full Review
  • Richard Corliss

    The movie is one continuous, exhausting, exhilarating chase.

    Time Full Review
  • Owen Gleiberman

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

    Entertainment Weekly Full Review
  • M. E. Russell

    It's a relentless finale to the "Bourne" movie trilogy that raises the stakes, pumps up the action and develops old characters while introducing new villains

    Portland Oregonian Full Review
  • Michael Sragow

    Few films combine a dense and tingling atmosphere with the headlong pacing and adventure of The Bourne Ultimatum.

    Baltimore Sun Full Review
  • Scott Tobias

    Damon's minimalist style is key to why the Bourne movies have become an oasis from other blockbuster action fare.

    The A.V. Club Full Review
  • Kirk Honeycutt

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

    The Hollywood Reporter Full Review
  • Carina Chocano

    It says something about Paul Greengrass' directing style that he's able to make a movie as fresh and frank as The Bourne Ultimatum from a genre as moldy and bombastic as the spy thriller.

    Los Angeles Times Full Review
  • Todd McCarthy

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

    Variety Full Review
  • Peter Travers

    The movie is thunderously exciting, but what makes it resonate is the wrenching story we read on Damon's face. We've waited all summer for a wild ride to grab us with more than jolts. Now it's here. Hang on.

    Rolling Stone Full Review
  • Roger Ebert

    You sit there, and the action assaults you, and using words to re-create it would be futile. What actually happens to Jason Bourne is essentially immaterial. What matters is that SOMETHING must happen, so he can run away from it or toward it.

    Chicago Sun-Times Full Review
  • Michael Phillips

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

    Chicago Tribune Full Review
  • Rene Rodriguez

    It's an action picture that's been distilled and compressed to its tightest, barest, almost abstract essence, and it's absolutely thrilling.

    Miami Herald Full Review
  • Elizabeth Weitzman

    Bursting with so much amped-up energy, you may need to rest once it's finally done.

    New York Daily News Full Review
  • Lou Lumenick

    Director Paul Greengrass - who directed the superb "United 93" between the second and third "Bourne" installments - knows how to stage and edit bravura action sequences, generating almost unbearable suspense while deploying a superb cast.

    New York Post Full Review
  • Maitland McDonagh

    It's the rare action picture whose adrenaline-driven thrills neither overshadow the characters nor degenerate into cartoonish preposterousness.

    TV Guide Full Review
  • Wesley Morris

    The movies are smart -- smarter than you, but not in an off-putting way. Their basic appeal, especially this new one, is that Matt Damon’s killing machine, Jason Bourne, is the cleverest man on earth. And we thrill to his sense of superiority.

    Boston Globe Full Review
  • Liam Lacey

    Both the most bewildering of the three movies and also the most brutally compelling.

    The Globe and Mail (Toronto) Full Review
  • Ella Taylor

    Faster and, if possible, furiouser than its predecessors.

    L.A. Weekly Full Review
  • David Ansen

    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.

    Newsweek Full Review
  • David Denby

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

    The New Yorker Full Review
  • Josh Rosenblatt

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

    Austin Chronicle Full Review
  • Mick LaSalle

    A thoughtful, satisfying action thriller.

    San Francisco Chronicle Full Review
  • James Berardinelli

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

    ReelViews Full Review
  • Glenn Kenny

    Most thrillers of this ilk have no qualms about going past the 120-minute mark, but I think Greengrass and company understood that overdoing it would turn mass excitement into massive headache.

    Premiere Full Review
  • Lawrence Toppman

    For once, I didn't feel cheated by an unresolved ending, but let's hope this is the end. Robert Ludlum wrote three Bourne novels, and this is one series that ought not to be dishonored by inferior sequels.

    Charlotte Observer Full Review
  • Peter Rainer

    Director Paul Greengrass downplays the movie's travelogue aspects by repeating the bobbly, hand-held camera style he used on "The Bourne Supremacy." It's not a style I'm fond of.

    Christian Science Monitor Full Review
  • Pete Vonder Haar

    A perfectly serviceable action movie…better than most, in fact. The entire premise is growing creaky, however, leading us to think we might want to leave this particular spy out in the cold a while, before he becomes completely tiresome.

    Film Threat Full Review
  • David Edelstein

    It’s not just vérité--it’s battlefield vérité; it triggers your fight-or-flight instincts.

    New York Magazine (Vulture) Full Review
  • J.R. Jones

    This adaptation of Robert Ludlum's third and last Bourne thriller doesn't have much story left, so director Paul Greengrass has to keep it moving all the time.

    Chicago Reader Full Review
  • Stephen Hunter

    It's frenetic to the point of crazy while achieving a mark that barely exceeds mediocre.

    Washington Post Full Review
  • William Arnold

    The movie is so surreal it's just not very involving. As an action extravaganza, it's busy but dull.
