So I’m doing the happy dance over here! We finally saw Bourne Ultimatum. We tend to not go to movies opening weekend since here in LA, things can get crazy with monster lines and crowds and whatnot. But we held off until Saturday to see it. Last week had to be one of the most painful weeks for me knowing that I was *this* close to being able to continue with the Bourne story. The hubby promised me that we’d see it over the weekend, so I patiently waited.
In anticipation, I watched Bourne Identity and Bourne Supremecy to get me back in the loop. I’m so glad I did to since the storyline was a little hazy in my mind. I knew the main details, spy guy has dissociative amnesia with kinesthetic memories and everyone is trying to kill him. But really, I forgot what a great movie it was. I loved how the beginning of this movie started with the end (kinda) of the last one. That was cool, very cool.
I have to say though, as good as the movie was – and it was good – I’m feeling quite let down. I was hoping for a little more Nicky and a little more back story. I swore I knew that Nicky and Bourne would end up together, but not like this. I was hoping for more. And there is more, I just know it. They totally glossed over things when she said how it was “different” with him, back in the coffee shop.
So the good thing…I’m seeing one more movie!! Doesn’t mean it will happen, but dammit, if they want me to be happy and fulfilled here, they’ll do it. Most folks tend to find it surprising that I really love this genre – action films, spy flicks, hell if I know – especially when it’s done well. Really, even if this type of movie isn’t your thing, check it out, you won’t be disappointed. Just don’t sit too well or the speed chases and flying cars will freak you out (or it could just be me).
