5. The Bourne Ultimatum
Director: Paul Greengrass
Stars: Matt Damon, Julia Stiles, David Straithairn, Edgar Ramirez, Scott Glenn, Joan Allen, Albert Finney, Colin Stinton, Joey Ansah
The last of a trilogy that improved with each sequel, Ultimatum's relentless cat-and-mouse chase turns a train-station stroll into a pulse-quickening pursuit, a coffee-table book into a brutal weapon, and Matt Damon into the ultimate ass-kicking machine. That was a lot of hyphens, but you get the drift.
