Jason Bourne: Movie Review

By: Matt Suzara

Jason Bourne (Matt Damon) is left out in the shadows and tries to survive by winning underground fights. Things started to change again when his former partner Nicky Parsons (Julia Stiles), hacked the CIA database and stole some important files. She locates Bourne and tries to give him the data, so he can finally know the truth about his past. Soon, the CIA team led by Robert Dewey (Tommy Lee Jones) and Heather Lee (Alicia Vikander) tracks the them down and ordered to eliminate the two targets before they expose the important data to the public. Now it's up to Bourne to find a way to uncover the truth about his past while trying to survive the wrath of the CIA.

Finally, Matt Damon is back to the franchise and my crossover dream between Jason Bourne and Aaron Cross is just off the books. Jason Bourne is a pretty solid action film filled with bombastic chases right from the get go. There are some outstanding scenes filled with thrilling fights equipped with a good heart-pounding soundtrack. However, some of it is a bit too much and are quite an overkill as some of the camera angles were staring to make your head spin at times. 

Still, Jason Bourne is a bit complicated on the story department. It''s been nine years since the release of  The Bourne Ultimatum so it's quite difficult to remember the things happened from the previous installments.  For me, it is better to have the time to watch again the entire franchise to refresh your memories so you wouldn't get lost like what I experienced last night. 

Matt Damon is up and back again in reprising his role after he once said that he was already done in this franchise. He really owns the titular character and makes the most out of it in its two-hour run time. Alicia Vikander is an incredible addition and a good compliment to Matt Damon. She is just getting better and stunningly gorgeous, even if she is wearing a corporate suit.  
Overall, Jason Bourne is a solid addition to this franchise. It might not be the best Bourne film but Matt Damon proves that he can still run his own action film and make it spectacular as possible.
