“The Bourne Ultimatum” was actually a very well made action thriller. Made much more impact on my second try – I made a promise to my wife that whenever she was ready to watch it in theatres, I would go with her and I did. If James Bond is the benchmark for all spy movies that make you sit on your seat edges, racing your pulses as you watch the nail biting car chases, et al — then Jason Bourne definitely just makes Bond look like a weakling or pussy! Kudos to Matt Damon for pulling this role off so effortlessly. The Tanjier chase and the London Waterloo chases are point in case on how this movie has brought back the whole genre of action movies back to its simple roots – “on land and no gizmos”.
While on action heroes and the likes, “Dasavatharam” promises to be a good thriller notwithstanding the hype around 10 roles that Kamal is donning. I personally am looking forward to the movie not because of that factor but more because of what has been circulated in the media as the general plot of the story which spans time periods.
For now though, I have got an action packed night ahead of me – What else but work?
