The Bourne Supremacy, The Bourne Ultimatum [Oct. 26th, 2016|10:41 am]
Tony Grist
All cities are one city- Munich, Berlin, Milan, Paris, London, Moscow, New York-  all merge together;  all are part of the same rat-run, presided over by the same officials in airless offices- wielding an arbitrary power of life and death- pursuing an agenda that doesn't have to be explained to any national government or electorate. The streets all look the same:  the buildings oppress and confine, the people swarm, the traffic crawls, the surveillance cameras clock it all ...

Why on earth do we choose to live like this?

But here comes our man- a fragment broken free from the collective, using the powers it taught him to hit back at it and smash it up- a man turned robot turned man again.

The Bourne movies distill the essence of the thriller as formulated by Buchan. The hunter is the hunted is the hunter. Simple as that. No bedroom dalliance, no martinis, no stopping to draw breath, just run, run, run, fight, run...
