Orange On the Aisle: The Bourne Ultimatum

If you've seen The Bourne Identity and The Bourne Supremacy you pretty much know what to expect with this third installment. And if you liked them rest assured, The Bourne Ultimatum doth too kick much ass.

Coming off the first two, I felt like Ultimatum devoted even more time for action, as that darn CIA just couldn't leave well enough alone. On the run again, Bourne takes the fight back to its source, and as the memories become clearer he learns just how he became a human weapon. (Not to be confused with The Perfect Weapon.) Bourne's birthing method concludes with a rather disturbing bit of initiation that the rest of the film's violence won't soften.

Ultimatum kicks ass. I got mine for Christmas, go get yours. Oh, movie review post title stolen from/in reverence to Conan O'Brien.

— 5 out of 5 sleeper agents
