He’s back, and the action scenes are more spectacular than ever.
There’s no doubt that Jeremy Renner did a great job portraying Bourne in 2012’s The Bourne Legacy, but there’s nothing like having Matt Damon back in the role. Damon even produced the film this time – a first in the series. This is classic Bourne: Matt Damon, scenes shot in Berlin, rooftop sniping, and as usual he is on the top of the CIA’s wanted list.
Jason Bourne’s past is brought into question when documents are discovered by old comrade Nicky Parsons (Julia Styles). He must uncover the truth behind his existence in the CIA program whilst being viciously hunted down by CIA Director Robert Dewey (Tommy Lee Jones) and agent Heather Lee (Alicia Vikander).
The chase scenes in Bourne movies have always been fantastic, but this time things are turned up a notch. Without giving too much away, you get a glimpse of what i’m referring to if you check out the trailer and see the van crashing into a Las Vegas casino.
My only reservation with this film is that perhaps the storyline is a little too simple, and therefore not as unpredictable as it could have been. Ok, and maybe Alicia Vikander’s erratic accent which seems to morph from American to British at will. Other than that, this is a must-see for Bourne fans!
Jason Bourne premieres in Sweden on 27 July.
