Left me wanting another, this concept should keep on going ..

I have enjoyed all the Bourne films, I really like the song at the end, Extreme Ways by Moby, which is a good track but becomes so much better aligned to the feel of this film. The core theme allows for deep soul searching, especially bad guys telling him he is a bad guy and 'he chose this', i think this can continue to be explored. I don't really need the extreme car chases but i guess this is part of the formula, the car chase in this is probably the most spectacular but i'd take the underdog in the tatty mini every day of the week. After all this is an underdog, a victim of extreme abuse and indoctrination which he is trying to overcome and make sense of. Someone who has become so found and empowered but so lost and soul destroyed. A human being trapped in a world of the powerful and brutal with hidden agenda's and then trapped in the mind and skill set of killing machine. I think an older Jason Bourne could bring this theme on and make it more powerful, maybe coming up against the younger nemisis from a more recent indoctrination training programme. After all this whole thing is about coming back from the brink and trying to make sense of it all, however they do it just pop Moby into a few scenes during the film. I've watched 4 of these (again) over the last few days and I still want more, good stuff.

4 Jason Bourne Movie
Verified purchase
As the "finale" in the Bourne series it was, shall we say, sad. Whilst not trying to spoil it for those who haven't watched this, yet.... The end was a bit of a plot twist...
Some of the fight scenes did look choreographed, and you could clearly see the "cuts" between the camera angles. There were quite a few gaffs in the cutting of the film, but overall, they did a pretty good job. (Fight with Desh, in the small bathroom... Anyone?)
The story has pace and depth, and answers many questions posed in earlier Bourne films, but also raises more.
Without being too sci-fi, it shows us a world that is all too possible. And shadowy government agencies that could or may be just like this, in the real world.
I haven't given it 5 stars simply because of the editing and narrative.
But as a 90 plus romp... Worth every penny.

They're all good.

Like many people, I got Bourne fatigue at one point, with this series spanning 15 years by the time of Bourne 5. Somewhere along the road I stopped giving the series much attention, and though I had previously caught this film, I'd not really given it much attention at the time. On rewatch, it's much better than I recall. In fact, the Bourne films really benefit from being watched back to back - especially the much-maligned Bourne Legacy, which is not only a better film than it gets credit for, but a really clever way to make a Bourne film with no Bourne.

Jason Bourne (not a great name for the film) is both a return to the Damon era, but also a break from it, and it's clearly making conscious choices to advance the plot in a fresh way. You can't blame the producers for that, but the result doesn't always thrill in the manner of the older ones.

What's good:

Matt Damon is great as Bourne, taking serious knocks and gamely running about like a man fifteen years younger. The setpieces are as well done as you'd expect of Paul Greengrass, and the action is top-notch.

What's less good : the writers are painting themselves into a corner a bit at this point. As Bourne remembers most of the details of his Treadstone past, the driving force of the earlier films is mostly gone. Instead, we learn about his father, and how young Bourne got tangled up in the program to start with. Not a bad idea for a story, but it takes things into slightly formulaic territory, with the opposing Treadstone asset even holding a long-standing grudge against Bourne himself. Some of these elements make the film feel slightly more in line with the likes of Liam Neeson's Taken - the thrills are there, but the quick-thinking spy-on-the-run dynamic fades into the background a bit. By the end of the film, Bourne is out for revenge, and it feels notably colder.

However, I really did enjoy this film much more watching it again. Its slick, it's lean, and it has a lot of what makes Bourne good. If it is the least good of the franchise, its still miles better than most action films, and I include Bond in that.

Bring on Bourne 6, I say.

Irrational
Verified purchase
I think this to be a badly directed film and the writing could be much improved.
We are introduced in unseemly haste to a number of characters and groups without any apparent reason with only the slightest of links to the previous story. Time taken to develop these aspect would have given the film more weight and credibility.

Although it may be easy and possibly acceptable to portray the Director of the CIA as an evil psychopath to also show him to be irrational is a bit much. That he should casually order the murder of four of his own operatives just to put a subordinate in her place and cast Jason Bourne, already a wanted man, as a callous killer, was simply unbelievable.

The 'spectacular' wrecking-fest with the SWAT truck was also an irrational and unnecessary addition. I watched the film a second time but skipped over that mayhem and the film was much improved by the omission of it. The last thing a professional assassin who was trying to escape undetected would have done would have been to take this truck and pointlessly draw attention to himself by literally driving through several hundred vehicles, with half the police of the city on his tail. How he eluded the police having crashed the truck into a casino is a mystery.

How to end Langley…? Please don’t.

An advertisement for the best of the fantasy of the State of Virginia. I felt momentarily like singing the old agency ditty in which I was trained on Lincoln Bridge in 2005: “Carry me back to Old Virginia.” To salute as the Brit caught into the fantasy having learned to enjoy my meat… Damon was and is… back… and this film had me feeling proud and on top… that cinema… as propaganda… can truly work. It was the simplicity achieved for this latest instalment. There was no over stretching of plot lines. If it required a fight sequence on a tram in Athens… then that’s what we were going to get. If it required a security vehicle to be driven through a casino… mission accomplished. There is no pretension… no over-reaching. Just the knowledge that America’s finest can continue… in the best way (with so much cynicism as to what we who wish to enjoy truly get out of not taking part). We want to be part of Bourne’s world. Incredible. Can’t wait for the next instalment. And after the way Obama attempted to pin Benghazi on Hillary: I can’t wait. We’ve got so much material…

Predictable but enjoyable way to kill a few hours
Verified purchase
I enjoyed the the first 3 Bourne films so was look forward to watch the return of Matt Damon to role.This was an enjoyable way to kill a few hours and it did answer some questions but it just felt kind of rushed.I felt like new characters were introduced a breakneck speed with no real back story and that a lot of characters could have been made more of. These types of movies have expected ending that bad guy loses but everything was so predictable and could see it coming, I like to have a few surprises.They left it open for another possible Bourne outing and if it happens il watch because despite the predictability it was an enjoyable way to spend evening and husband and I do enjoy picking plots to bits 😂

I’m a big fan of the Bourne movies ... was surprised I never knew about this one.
Anyhow, gave it a go...

Matt Damon looks very tired & old . Right from the start the movie is scatty and lacks direction. The fight scenes are very unimaginative and have no impact, the only thing more dull is the dialogue in between which is poorly written and has no value.

Let’s get to the point , they should of finished it with the Bourne ultimatum which I thought was the best of the 3. I’m going to forget I ever watched this.

He's Back!

If you're a fan of the series or just this genre of film in general then you should love this film. They add another layer to the character's story and continue with the epic car chases, and fight scenes. Matt Damon is one of those actors you wouldn't think of when considering an actor for this kind of role, not due to his acting abilities but just the way he looks. Just a guy next door who works at your local store, a far cry from the 80s/90s action stars who looked mean and tough.
