Jason Bourne | ★★★★★★☆☆☆☆

After a long nine year wait Matt Damon came out of action hero retirement and reprised his role as CIA trained assassin turned amnesiac Jason Bourne. The movie felt like a retread of The Bourne Supremacy to me. The plot was predictable. There were no surprises and way way too many computerized car and motorcycle chase scenes.

Everything about the aged Bourne seemed a bit depressing from the onset of the film. Unlike the first three Matt Damon installments this one seemed a bit tired and contrived. I think Matt Damon is a pretty good actor when he has some lines to speak. In this sequel his acting seemed to be relegated to pouty stares and green scene action sequences.

All that said, this Bourne junkie did sort of like the movie and you might too if you like other Bourne movies. On a scale of ten, give it ★★★★★★☆☆☆☆.

  1. Sorry you didn't care for it. I think my husband had similar opinions like yours. I enjoyed it, loved the action and maybe didn't look at it like a Bourne movie sequel.

    1. Goods thoughts Debby. Perhaps I would have enjoyed it more if I did not compare to the other installments. ツ

    2. Had thought to go see the flic tomorrow nite. Now I am conflicted. Though in today's world 60% is a passing grade. Barely.

    3. If you liked the others I think that you might like it David?
