All he wanted was to disappear. Instead, Jason Bourne (Damon) is hunted by the people who made him what he is, a highly trained assassin. Having lost his memory and the one person he loved, Bourne must now go back to the beginning and find out who he was. Jason travels the globe as he continues his quest to uncover the truth behind his mysterious past. Will the CIA, with its new generation of relentless assassins, find Bourne before he finds them and gives the CIA operatives an Ultimatum? Based on the novel by Robert Ludlum. (Stacey Pendry)
The anamorphically enhanced 2.38:1 DVD shows good resolution, with fine details in the picture delivered well. Details in the shadows are also readily apparent, but black levels are not as deep as in the best releases. The picture has a similarly gritty and harsh appearance as the previous Bourne releases. The color palette generally is lacking of bright, vibrant colors, but they are generally well balanced and nicely saturated. Contrast is generally nicely rendered. While edge enhancement is minor, it can be recognized in the highest contrast transitions, and shimmering and pixel breakup can be recognized on occasion. (Danny Richelieu)
