[...]recommend people watch the second movie beforehand, as it doesn't waste any time explaining who people are or what happened in previous movies[...]
I really liked that, actually. It was definitely the conclusion of a trilogy, and anyone who hadn't seen the first two would obviously have missed a lot. The Bourne Identity
***** The Bourne Supremacy
**** The Bourne Ultimatum
**** - I definitely recommend it to anyone who liked the first two. Possible spoiler-talk below...
(Of course, if you don't want to read spoilers, a Web-forum thread about the film is a pretty silly place to be hanging about, isn't it?
I liked how they threaded Ultimatum
together with Supremacy
. It wasn't vital to the story or anything, but it was clever. The "shaky cam" will turn a lot of people off, but I thought it worked well for the 2nd and 3rd films. I hope the Casting Director for these films gets an award; this trilogy has featured fantastic casts throughout. The two Blackbriar "assets" weren't as interesting as Clive Owen and Karl Urban were in the first two films, although the final confrontation on the rooftop was a good ending ("Look at what they make us give" - which was Owen's quote from the first movie, in the wheat field).
And was Julia Stiles always that cute and I just never noticed?
