Politics of the Bourne Ultimatum, and other movies

The Bourne Ultimatum: rejecting the CIA” by Hans Bennett provides an overly optimistic and perhaps false view of a number of movies and novels, to my knowledge. Is violence really “not glorified at all” in Bourne, the man and the movies?; Are the “critiques of US militarism and foreign policy” actually all that “remarkable” and “scathing” in these films, especially when taken in context of the films in their entirety? Seems rather dubious. Nevertheless, the article does point out some libratory instances.
