With The Bourne Ultimatum now only a couple weeks out, Universal Pictures has allowed the first early screenings of the finished product and the response has (so far) been very positive.

Screening Reports: The Bourne Ultimatum

The good people over at AICN have received two positive screening reports from The Bourne Ultimatum showing in LA. The general consensus suggests that this Bourne installment is the best yet.

I just got back from a guild screening at the Pacific Design Center in Los Angeles (nice theater but not enough legroom) for “The Bourne Ultimatum,” and it may be the best thing I’ve seen all summer.

The movie’s story is told well and classily. You’ll be glad for the few breaks in the action, if only to catch your breath before the next one. It’s action packed, but not bloated as many of the other summer action flicks are. We follow Bourne from Moscow to London to Madrid to Tangiers to…you get the idea. And in each country we’re treated to an insanely entertaining, skilled chase/fight sequence as Bourne uses his CIA spy/assassin skills to run rings around the agents and “assets” (the CIA doesn’t come out and use the word assassin or hitman apparently) sent to kill him. These are all crosscut with the machinations of some slimy CIA bigwigs in Langley and New York, played by Scott Glenn and the excellent David Strathairn, while Joan Allen continues her fine work as Bourne’s ally(?) who starts to realize something fishy’s going on in her own office. These bits are quite well done as well.

Check out all the screening reports for The Bourne Ultimatum at AICN.

The Bourne Ultimatum opens to theatres on August 3rd.
