The Bourne Ultimatum

with 5 comments

You’re a reporter on the biggest story of your life as a reporter on “spooks” and you have just met your “source” You arrive back in your country, turn on your phone, and your editor calls. What should you NOT do when you speak to your editor?

How about NOT utter the CODENAME of the project that your source is blowing cover over? Why? because your British Telecom CELL PHONE is monitored by ECHELON and Menwith Hill, thats why!

Suddenly you are the target of some heavy surveillance and your life means less than it did before as a private citizen who was just minding their business. This is how the movie begins and let me tell you it keeps up the pace and traps your attention! If you loved the novels you will love the movie. Sure its different, but a GOOD different! I think that Ludlum would approve.

The whole film also has the requisite background done on todays INTEL terms as well as feel. They also have taken the dark path down to how things are run today really. Watch and think “ghost detainees” who can be even you or I should we piss off the wrong people. All in all a good ride.

The only real complaint I have? Well, ok, the first person shaky cam really… REALLY can be annoying as well as detrimental to anyone with motion sickness. Remember Blair Witch? Yeah, that kind of shaky cam work… Bring the dramamine kids.

  2. saw bourne last weekend. so I wonder… do you think the monitoring capability (such as how the reporter gets tripped up for example as you posted) is real?
