The Bourne Ultimatum: Driving School (2007 Video)
User ReviewsReview this title
2nd Unit director Dan Bradley welcomes the viewers to a test track in Bayonne, New Jersey where Matt Damon is driving cars in reverse at very high speeds and basically having a ball. This is for the scene in The Bourne Ultimatum in which his character steals a car on the top of the Port Authority. Just as he back outs, Jason spots a CRI sedan racing towards him and decides to make a break for it driving in reverse while shooting. We also take a look at the Camera mounted to the side of the car shooting Matt in profile and into the rear view mirror , just to prove it's really him behind the wheel.
Trivia lovers will have read on both the Ultimatium and Supremacy trivia pages here on IMDb that Jason Bourne does not smile in either of those two sequels. Well, here's another trivial tidbit for you: Matt Damon can't stop himself grinning in this Making Of. He says it's ridiculous to get paid to have so much fun and confesses he would would love to have Dan Bradley direct a whole movie like this (assuming he would get to star in it). Bradley for his part makes the obligatory Nascar reference and of course has to mention that Damon is so good behind the wheel, he's gonna put a stuntman out of a job.
Later on in the film, JB steals another car, this time one outfitted by the NYPD force. So, we see MD drive around in this one for a while as well, but this time Dan Bradley doesn't bother to explain what happens in the scene. It just sort of ends there. Gotta save something for the next featurette I suppose. Courtesy, Professionalism, Respect.
