Bursting with energy and tension, the action film of the decade Ultimatum, finally
explodes on to the small screen. From the acclaimed British director, Paul Greengrass (United
93, Bourne Supremacy), this latest high octane installment in the Bourne franchise charges
across the screen from the opening sequence with an intensity and intelligence equal to none.The voltage is high, the action is relentless and the suspense palpable as Jason Bourne (Matt
Damon) continues the hunt for his identity. With no high-tech gadgets, flashy cars or cheesy
one-liners, Bourne is a trained killer who relies on pure guile, strength and stealth to keep
him alive. His search takes him across the globe, all the while ruthlessly pursued by former
employer, the CIA. From the opening chase on foot to the tense cat-and-mouse hunts across
rooftops and continents, the pace never drops a gear.Picking up from where its predecessor (The Bourne Supremacy), left off, the Bourne Ultimatum
opens to see Jason Bourne evading Moscow police before disappearing under the radar once more.
Resurfacing in Paris, an article in The Guardian newspaper, reignites his determination to
discover the truth - who is he? His answer lies with the journalist behind the story, Simon
Ross (Paddy Considine Hot Fuzz) But Ross is now under surveillance by the CIA and when a
rendezvous is arranged at Londons Waterloo station, director Greengrass beautifully
orchestrates one of the most unpredictable and ingenious chase scenes in film history.Bourne goes head to head with Pamela Landy (Joan Allen Upside of Anger), recruited by cunning
CIA Deputy Director Noah Vosen (David Strathairn Good Night & Good Luck). Landy is an experienced
covert operator and an expert in hunting down men. On Bournes unrelenting journey towards
the truth, he meets disillusioned CIA operative Nicky Parsons (Julia Stiles The Omen),
who joins him on a quest that takes them both to Tangier.
As the film reaches a furious climax, the ante is upped as Bourne heads to the CIA substation
in New York. In a showdown of ingenuity, thrilling action and mounting momentum, Bourne edges
closer to unlocking the final secrets of his identity and fitting together the final pieces of
the marauding jigsaw of his fragmented existence.
A rollercoaster ride from start to finish the Bourne Ultimatum is a gritty and gripping spy
thriller that is as slick and subtle as its amnesiac hero. Included with the DVD is a host

which has made what critics claim to be the finest action movie ever made. Universal Pictures
