Amazon.co.uk Review
Finally making its Blu-ray bow, The Ultimate Bourne Collection defies the convention for how these things are supposed to work. The theory runs that a trilogy’s best film is the first, and it’s a case of diminishing returns from that point onwards. The Bourne movies? They just keep getting better and better.

Things kick off well with The Bourne Identity, which introduces Matt Damon as Jason Bourne. When we meet him, he’s no idea who he is, but he quickly learns that he’s in possession of some quite extraordinary, and lethal, skills. The film is slap bang on the money for the first two thirds, before a slightly muddled last act. Yet it still gets the franchise off to a good start.

The directorial reigns passed over from Doug Liman (of Swingers and now Mr and Mrs Smith fame) to Paul Greengrass (United 93, Bloody Sunday) for The Bourne Supremacy, and it proved to be a wise choice. Supremacy is a faster, more intense film, that this time sees Jason Bourne framed for murder, and gradually closing in on the secrets of his part. It’s pulsating stuff.

The icing on the proverbial cake though is the superb The Bourne Ultimatum, arguably one of the finest blockbuster movies of the past decade or two. Effectively a two-hour chase movie, it’s a staggering achievement that returning director Greengrass manages to keep the momentum going right the way through. Damon, by this point, utterly owns the role, and it’s a film that demands to be re-watched time and time again.

As you’d hope and expect, high definition is both kind and effective where the Bourne films are concerned, with the fast action looking quite superb in 1080p. Backed up by a vibrant, brilliant surround sound mix, all three of the films benefit from the upgrade, and ultimately leave you salivating for the much-rumoured fourth installment. A terrific trilogy. --Simon Brew

Dont get why people on here seem to **** play.com off on a regular basis saying other retailers are more reliable.
I have used play for a few years now and never had a problem with delivery or delays or items not coming at all and I have had all these problems with Amazon not to mention taking payment for orders that have been cancelled due to items beeing out of stock.
Maybe i've just been unlucky with amazon but thats my experience with them.
Good deal for 3 great blu-ray movies

I agree with aaron, amazon have screwed up more pre-orders than i care to remember and also have promised stock to me that they don't even have. i have an order history of over 200 items + with play.com and not one has failed to turn up. The "more reliable retailer" comment is the pile of rubbish in all of this.

Both companies have screwed up my orders and deliveries in the past, so I've no preference one way or the other on that front - but I'm preferring Play these days because they take the gamble and come up with the deals and Amazon just follow suit.

Just my two-penneth.
