Jason Bourne (2016)


Elevator Pitch

Nicky Parsons, working for an environmental group, hacks into the CIA database and finds stuff about the origins of Treadstone, and as a result contacts Bourne who has been living off the grid as a bare nuckle fighter They meet in Athens, but the new head of cyber ops in the CIA detects the hack and puts a trace on Bourne. The CIA activate an Asset who is soon on the case, shooting Nicky and chasing Bourne who must evade his pursuers and get to the truth of his father’s involvement in Treadstone.


There are car chases and a motor bike pursuit. Bourne moves from Athens to Berlin and then to London and Las Vegas. The CIA are at odds internally and the Asset works independently for Dewey, the head of the CIA while Heather Lee, the head of cyber ops begins to sympathise with Bourne, so much time spent in darkened rooms equipped with screens showing the movements of the quarry. No sex, nudity, drinking or drug taking.

A View Well, this movie was well panned by many of the critics although overall they were fairly evenly divided. I am a fan of the franchise and I still liked it, and there is no doubt that Paul Greengrass is a master of the action sequence. If anything the car chases were a bit too long. Definitely a watch for nothing or a small fee.
