‘Jason Bourne’

jason-bourne-movie-posterHow many more car chases can we put up with? And in Jason Bourne, it’s of such magnitude and at the end of the film that it teeters on ridiculous (not helped by the film itself has already proven to be somewhat boring).

But then we’ve already had the Bourne trademarks – CIA operatives tracking Matt Damon across crowded European city squares on foot (in this case Athens and London), a female sympathiser in Langley itself (a too young Alicia Vikander – The Danish Girl, Ex-machina), motorbike chases, Bourne defeating the hordes as snippets of memory return.

Moments of excitement are cancelled out by the repetitive nature of the storyline – a microcosm of everything that’s come before it in the series.
