Bourne is once again brought out of hiding, this time inadvertently by London-based reporter Simon Ross who is trying to unveil Operation Blackbriar--an upgrade to Project Treadstone--in a series of newspaper columns. Bourne sets up a meeting with Ross and realizes instantly they're being scanned. Information from the reporter stirs a new set of memories, and Bourne must finally, ultimately, uncover his dark past whilst dodging The Company's best efforts in trying to eradicate him. Written by
As shown to Pam Landy on a computer screen, Jason Bourne enters New York as Gilberto de Piento from Brazil. The identity's passport is briefly shown in The Bourne Identity (2002) during Jason's exploration of the deposit box in Zürich. But the spelling there is Gilberto do Piento. Furthermore, in The Bourne Identity (2002) this name appears not as one of Bourne's alternate names, but as the name of the Brazilian federal police chief who signed the passport. In that old Brazilian passport, in the 2002 film, Bourne's name appears on another page entirely and is actually listed as João do Carmo. See more »

This is the first 10 out of 10 that I've given any movie. What made this movie so good for me? Constant action - there isn't any slow parts, great acting, smart writing. I also liked the filming style where the shakiness and different angles just made it feel like you are a part of the scene. Finally, I get to see an action movie that doesn't try to please all sectors of the public (i.e. there's no forced romance).
I liked the first two Bourne movies, but I loved this one.
Warning - after watching this movie, you will be full of adrenaline and you may want to calm down a bit before driving your car!
