Abstract:

At the time of its release in 2007, "The Bourne Ultimatum" was described by one writer as the blockbuster it was okay to like; while at the start of 2010 "Sight and Sound" magazine included it as a rare Hollywood example in their poll of the most important films of the last decade. What is it about this third entry in a Hollywood action franchise that satisfied both the cognoscenti and mass audiences across the world? In this book, Archer considers the film's status as a serious blockbuster; compares the rise of Jason Bourne in relation to the decline of another J.B. (James Bond) and considers the upstart's impact on the revived Bond of "Casino Royale."
