Elevator Pitch Jason Bourne is still out there, and the organisation is trying to eliminate all traces of Blackfriar, which involves the termination of all nine agents, but No 5’s survival skills, enhanced by an experimental drug make him difficult to kill. He teams up with a scientist from the project and they go on the run across the world in an effort to survive.
Content Terrific scenes in the Alaskan outback where drone attacks take place. Time spent in the darkened control rooms where the organisation control the aircraft, and trace the “runners” during their efforts to survive. Some shoot-outs, one rather disturbing in a laboratory, one at a house in the woods. Some running over rooftops and a car and motor-bike chase in Thailand. No nudity or sex, or drinking or, as one critic observed, eating.
A View While I’m not sure I would have gone to the cinema to see this I really enjoyed it on our flat screen HD TV. Lots of set pieces effectively from other movies. One, as No 5 assembles his rifle to shoot down the Predator drone, straight out of “From Russia with Love”, but really no worse for that. Cost a lot but made money.
