Bourne Ultimatum

I went to see The Bourne Ultimatum after work this afternoon with Martin. I went in with much anticipation, as the first two movies are some of my all time favorites. After seeing the movie, I did a little looking online to read other peoples’ feedback and the consensus seems to be that it is an excellent film, but it could have done without the shaky camera work. Before giving it such high praise, I think I need to see it again. We got to the theater a few minutes after the previews had started, so we were forced to sit three rows from the front. The fact that we were at the Ultrascreen only served to compound the problem … from that distance it’s difficult to follow rapidly motion because of the great distance that is covered. I would have to say that I probably missed about half of the movie because of this. Story-wise, I think it did a good job of concluding the series and is easier to follow than the first two movies (but isn’t the lack of clarity or explanation of Treadstone in, say, the first movie, half of what makes it so intriguing?)
