Jason Bourne (Blu-ray + DVD + Digital HD)
24 used from $ 6.00
Matt Damon returns as Jason Bourne and Paul Greengrass as the director. They bring back the thrill, intensity, action, and fantastic story lines that used to in the original trilogy. Greengrass delivers a movie that is both intelligent and intense. He builds upon his work adding depth to the story instead of CGI seen elsewhere. In an age where action films rely heavily on CGI, it is refreshing to see real stunts and real car chases.
Jason Bourne is an incredibly exhilarating thrill ride from start to finish. The new writers have developed a refreshingly complex and layered story featuring a metaphorically lost Bourne accompanied by a subplot about digital privacy that brings a welcome layer of social commentary. New information about Bourne’s past and true identity emerges to bring about a thrilling globetrotting stand-off between Bourne and his creators.
The cast alongside Damon is excellent. Tommy Lee Jones was perfect for the role of the CIA director. Alicia Vikander was good as the new breed of the scheme within the CIA. She offers an empowering performance as an active, driven and intelligent female adversary. Vincent Cassel is the asset for the CIA who wants to kill Bourne. Julia Stiles is back to play a short but important role in helping Bourne discover the truths of his past.
Jason Bourne is an exciting, intriguing, edge of the seat espionage thriller that is a return to the franchise’s form. With a mix of new and old characters to carry the torch, it does not disappoint and becomes another successor to an ever growing series.
