    HAHA!
    Brilliant point.

    Don't really see how the Bourne Ultimatium is an English film?

    It was directed by an Englishman, but that seem's to be about it. Does that mean I can claim Casino Royale as a New Zealand film?

    RC Guest

    Wait...are you joking?
    I can never tell with you.

    getofmeland Guest

    Because Majority of the film was filmed in the UK, that allows us to claim it... also I think the main base for it was Pinewood Studios...

    Ripper Guest

    I personally thought they would've had to have stricter criteria - Have a large chunk of British money behind it, majority British cast and so forth rather than a Universal Studio's funded tale penned by an American and starring Matt Damon.

    I know, its stupid but ah well...

    They gave you guys Lord of the Rings!!! that is classed as a New Zealand film...

    Yeah, but preety much everything behind the camera was either done by, or organised by New Zealanders.

    Weta Workshop for a start handled everything from sound to design to visual effects, and most of those shiny trophies were won by the New Zealand crew. If we win a couple of more, we are going to cut a deal with Satan to win the next 3 World Cups.

    You need to do something to win a World Cup!!!

    I think alot of the production for Bourne Ultimatum was British based, so I guess thats why its allowed to be classed a british film...
