Jason Bourne

Posted on July 30, 2016


Jason Bourne – Nicky Parsons (Julia Stiles) hacks into CIA’s Black Ops files and finds information on how David Webb (Matt Damon) became Jason Bourne. She gets it to Bourne, but at a cost. He starts remembering and wants more answers. CIA Director Robert Dewey (Tommy Lee Jones) has hooked up with a Steve Jobs-like Aaron Kalloon (Riz Ahmed) whose latest app will help keep an eye on everyone. Is individual privacy more important than public safety? Even though Dewey is one bad apple, Jones with his heavily-lined face is so fun to watch.

It’s an action packed movie: Bourne uses all his nine lives, and he can ride a bike. There’s a car chase that goes on forever and at least a gazillion cars are totaled. Alicia Vikander (Heather Lee) appears to be on Bourne’s side, but she may just want the director’s job.

I think most of us agree that Matt Damon gets better with age and I’m thinking there’s at least one more Bourne in him.
