It's highly charged up high octave fast paced action adventure. Yes, Jason Bourne is back move over, 007.
he opening takes us back where the first film end with Bourne fleeing the scene while being pursued though the streets wounded. Where after we move to the present day where the CIA is still trying to hunt down Bourne before he kills one of CIA operatives, but Bourne could really care less about that no more he's looking for the answers, the answers that would made him what is now.F
ilm editing is extremely while done in this final conclusion, that's up for an Oscar nomination for (Universal) Christopher Rouse.D
oors always make good sound-effects in films as this one clearly opens to left front one of the major benefits to have matching fronts LCR because timbre matching is extremely crucial to film sound art.
ound effects editing (Universal) Karen Baker Landers and Per Hallberg and what a clash of superbly crafted and engineered effects that really stuck me in the centre of the films non-stop action, even the subtle sound effects kept me intensified, with heavy duty Foley body face punches and lots and lots of Bourne crashing though windows headfirst, even as far as running a car at high speed in reverse of a rooftop!
Lots of hand-to-hand combat and some wicked stunt work, that look so painful, as each CIA operative tries to stop Bourne dead in his tracks.
Its also up for best achievement in sound for (Universal) Scott Millan, David Parker and Kirk Francis, and after hearing this felling the impacts, I'd say Kevin O'Connell has some stiff competition with this one, if he's lucky The Bourne Ultimatum might just walk away with sound effects editing and Kevin and Rick might walk away for best sound achievement for Transformers, we shall see this Sunday?
One of the assassins does away with CIA operative while Bourne tries to warn! Just moments too late, the sound of the explosion rumbled as it faded out with a nice reverb in the surrounding streets as on looking people rush o the scene.
core by John Powell was nice hear again and Moby Extreme Ways which is now a kind of trademark with the Bourne films. I think this is one KM Kennedy Marshall best productions and contributions in there partnership. It's nice that director Paul Greengrass has kept with the project as one director should do.
Good surround sound moment as Bourne jumps though an opening window with frantic woman screaming and yelling as the sound moves from centre front to left then side surrounds then on to the centre back surround very fast sound effects editing.
