New to the DVD shelves this week so not a cheapie, but hell, who cares!
This is the latest installment in the Bourne Series, and it doesn’t disappoint.
At 46, Matt Damon is in great shape and still has It.
Matt Damon is Jason Bourne. No other actor could play him. The man breathes the character. Put him and Paul Greengrass together and what do you get?
Although on first viewing it’s not clear how many years have passed, there are still a few fuzzy areas in Bourne’s memory. Nicky Parsons (Julia Stiles now with long hair again) is digging around in his past by hacking into the CIA files and turns up something of serious, and unexpected, interest.
We have some new players in the game with Tommy Lee Jones and Alicia Vikander, neither of which I trusted.
In the previous movies, you had brilliant car chases and excellent bike chases, but in this you have a terrific joint car and bike chase as well which had me on the edge of my seat, gnashing my teeth and biting my lip. Let’s just say I want a S.W.A.T. vehicle.
The fight scenes are so expertly choreographed, I felt the pain of every thrown punch!
With a neat little recap of the story in flashback at the beginning, what followed was 1 hour and 58 minutes of action, plot twists, confusion, sleight of hand, new ‘programmes’ and that wonderful way Bourne has of always being one step ahead of the game leaving the CIA with their trousers down sotospeak.
