Review: The Bourne Ultimatum

And the award for the most over-rated movie this year goes to...

The third Bourne instalment offers little more than its predecessors, which makes me scratch my head over the acclaimed reviews below and across the world.

Bourne 3 is undoubtedly a tight, polished thriller which keeps you entertained all the way through, but it offers nothing new in the spy genre, doesn't really engage on a personal level, and is instantly forgettable.

The trend this decade is that ordinary movies which have well-crafted action scenes receive more plaudits than they deserve (thinking Kill Bill, Sin City etc) and that trend continues here.
