Given that in the second movie Bourne returned to the operational agenda of the CIA, the writers (now they have three, including Tony Gilroy) came up to him quite natural (as for the supposed final) way to get to the Source (just like the second “Matrix”), to meet with the Architect (here his name is albert Hirsch, plays his albert Finney) and find out why the Chosen one has arrived (the CIA agent Jason Bourne) and how to save Zion (to make it left alone).
This film has no complaints, so it is the technical component. After the previous film Bompiani, Greengrass directed “Lost flight” (2006), in my opinion, a better picture, and one of the best thrillers in cinema history. Thus, it is not surprising that proprietary techniques this Director is crazy handheld camera and frantic editing reached here is absolutely incredible level of development. The film is noticeably cut in the rhythm (episodes conversation in a cafe or a spontaneous confession after another murder here look strangely alien), which in return gave him a simply stunning energy cinematic dynamism, sweeping away everything in its path, and turns from a extra technical features almost the main conceptual image of the film.
Not too happy, so this is a significant simplification of the structure of the CIA. Paradoxically, this simplification is shown through the expansion of its capabilities to dizzying heights. It is clear that the writers tried to some extent to modify the character (Yes, this is a separate character in the entire trilogy) from film to film, but it is in the “Ultimatum” was upset the delicate balance, causing the force became excessive hyperbole that causes confusion rather than shock, and the intelligence of the heavy, but extremely interesting analytical work turned into a fresh computer omniscience.
The symbol of this simplification, the relationship of Pamela Landy with the new character Noah Vasanam (the amazing David Strathairn). Yes, of course, the dialogues he has written a very decent and sometimes even exciting, the conflict of interests and worldviews are marked logically and develops relatively unhackneyed, but this storyline is considerably inferior to the oppositions Conklin with Abbott in the first film with Abbott and Lundy in the second. I think the writers were lost difficult to explain the naturalness of the expression of these conflicts, and at the same time, the fundamental significance of them. Perhaps the case in that story a certain way begins to repeat, with minor modifications of the ideas of the two previous films.
Not too pleased with the character development of the Bourne. Matt Damon (finest actor, by the way) honestly and faithfully plowed the entire trilogy not out of fear but for conscience, but in the third film, I think, its some failed writers. Given that the first two paintings he expressed the script as a free person, opposed to a unified, robotic staffing structure of the organization of the closed type, I don’t think that can be considered successful roll the character in the third film in the direction of the sketchiness and typing actions, excessive prochitannosti plans. Do not make Bourne the same CIA but with the opposite sign!
In fairness, I must say that one very sensible feature of this character the screenwriters of the third film is still prescribed. We are talking about a complex conflict between his two names David Webb and Jason Bourne. This contradiction is only intensified and deepened due to the fact that David Webb came voluntarily to the CIA (another very good scenario idea!) and Jason Bourne is trying to get out of it (especially in the psychological sense).
It turns out that “the Bourne Ultimatum” is such a powerful and very fast train, the interior of which is much inferior to the first two movies (and the beauty (romantic visuals completely evaporated), and the presence of necessary attributes). And what was filmed in this series of films in the future, once again testifies to the fact that complete a good story in time is a real art. In contrast to David Webb, who could say that he is no longer Jason Bourne, the Studio executives opted to shy away from this truth.
