Countries-USA, Germany / Director-Paul Greengrass / Running time-115 minutes
What it's all about: A lost former CIA hitman ends his standoff with his former employers
The series of spy thrillers about Jason Bourne has become a natural evolution of the genre. The films of Doug Lyman and Paul Greengrass pitted the lone hero against the most dangerous enemy on Earth-secret agents in the service of the United States. Over the course of three intense thrillers, Bourne fought off his pursuers and tried to understand why the CIA was hunting him, until finally, at the climax of the cycle, he moved the war to enemy territory, to New York. In "The Bourne Ultimatum", the drive and intensity of passions were off the scale, and the battle scenes were more spectacular than ever and, at the same time, relatively realistic, without trying to turn the hero Matt Damon into an "outrageous" superhero. Like the previous film, The Bourne Supremacy, Ultimatum was the clearest demonstration of how shooting with a hand-held camera, in a pseudo-documentary style, can emphasize the excellent work of stunt directors and duels.
If the final Moscow scenes of " Bourne Supremacy "were shot in Moscow, the opening Moscow scenes of" Ultimatum "were shot in Berlin," disguised " as the Russian capital. The creators of the series did not dare to return to Moscow and shoot in the January frosts.
