Ultimate Summer Movie

I caught The Bourne Ultimatum this afternoon. It wasn’t planned. I was taking a short cut through Leicester Square and saw that the box office was already open and the film was about to start.

This is a great, full throttle summer movie. Hell, it’s even better than Transformers. As a threequel, rather than trying to be bigger and better – which usually means bloated – it kindly continues the story to a logical conclusion.

Lean and fast, it clocks in at under two hours, making it actually shorter than the first film, so don’t go buying a large popcorn on the way in because the credits will be rolling before you get anywhere near the bottom of the bucket.

Along with the hardcore thrills and spills it also contains the third handy lesson in how to beat the living shit out of someone with an everyday object. I can’t wait to try this new one out at the local library.

I must lend you the Doom DVD, as you’re having far too much fun at the cinema... ;-)
