The Bourne Ultimatum, third in the nifty and exciting Bourne series, had better be as great as the other two movies or I'm gonna fuck somebody up. Indeed, The Bourne Supremacy (film #2) is my favorite action film of all time.
Lest you think that the Bourne movies have no artistic cred, the first installment was helmed by Doug Liman, who showed remarkable indie chops with Swingers and Go, and the second and third installments were directed by Englishman Paul Greengrass, best known for the docudramas Bloody Sunday and United 93.
True kudos, however, go to screenwriter Tony Gilroy because directors get far too much credit. ("A film by so-and-so." I think not.)
