The Bourne Ultimatum (Bourne Movie #3)

The Bourne Ultimatum is the third Jason Bourne film. Released in 2007, the film was directed by Paul Greengrass and very loosely (if at all) based on the Robert Ludlum novel (the last Bourne novel written by Ludlum).

Once again, Matt Damon takes on the role of Jason Bourne, the former CIA assassin and amnesiac. The film continues from the previous film, after Bourne's escapes from authorities in Moscow.

Bourne is again forced out of hiding by a British reporter who is researching Operation Blackbriar, a newer version of Project Treadstone headed by Noah Vosen (David Strathairn). The reporter is also researching the "CIA assassin named Jason Bourne." Bourne meets with the reporter, only to realize they are under surveillance by a group of CIA agents, as well as a remaining Treadstone assassin codenamed Paz (Edgar Ramirez). Bourne escapes the attempt on his life, though the reporter is not so lucky. 

Jason Bourne is determined to uncover his past, while attempting to survive the CIA's revived hunt for him. Bourne is able to acquire classified documents proving that Blackbriar has targeted U.S. citizens. Pamela Landy (see The Bourne Supremacy) disagreed with Vosen's methods from the start and does not support the new Blackbriar project. 

In the end, Bourne comes full circle and finally faces person who oversaw his Treadstone training and behavioral modification some years earlier. New memories resurface for Bourne, the people behind Treadstone and Blackbriar are exposed, and Bourne evades another attempt on his life by leaping off of a ten-story building into the East River.

The Bourne Ultimatum is the only film in the Bourne trilogy to be nominated for an Academy Awards. In fact, it won all three awards it was nominated for: Best Film Editing, Best Sound, and Best Sound Editing.
