Bourne hits big again.

I don't usually do movie reviews, but I gotta spread the word and the love for "Bourne Ultimatum." I'm a huge fan of the first two flicks, and this third one keeps the adrenaline flowing, the action moving, and the fists flying.

I'm not gonna give away any major plot twists, and there are several that will interest fans of the franchise. Let's just say that "Ultimatum" answers a lot of questions from the earlier movies in a consistent fashion to what we've already seen. Some old characters return, some new ones are introduced, and a few people are killed along the way.

At the same time, the movie manages to make some political statements about it would be like to live in a world where your government could hack into your email, tap your phones and track your every move -- even if you're an American citizen. Sure glad we don't live in a world like that...

Anyway, it was a blast, the best movie I've seen this summer (yes, different from yet better than even "Transformers"), and I'm sure I'll be back to see it at least once more while it's in theaters.
