MOVIE: The Bourne Ultimatum

NUTSHELL: Another one of those great action things where everyone’s chasing Matt Damon and he’s pistolwhipping everyone all around the world except also Julia Stiles gets punched in the face! In the face!

GOOD THINGS: Paddy Considine, Joan Allen, Chris Cooper for a moment – I think- or was that a trailer?, Julia Stiles, 100% less of Bourne constantly wiping everything down for fingerprints

BAD THINGS: David Strathairn, Albert Finney (I know, what the?)

FEATURES: Julia Stiles looking very Martha Stewart-y and I mean that as a compliment.

UNCOMFORTABLE MOMENTS: So much angst! You wish you had this much angst, you non-country-hopping, non-killing-machine emo teenagers!

NOTABLE: Contains first sequence I’ve seen in which a moped goes up flights of stairs.

BEST PART: Edgar Ramirez as Dawlish: International Man of Mystery

BEST LINE: Enjoy your egg whites.

CROWNS: 4 out of 5
