Jason Bourne (2016)

 

shareStarring: Matt Damon, Tommy Lee Jones, Alicia Vikander, Vincent Cassel, Julia Stiles

Plot: In the most recent installment of the Bourne series, Jason Bourne is drawn out of hiding when a part of his past is brought into a new light.

Rating: 5/10

Overall: I really wanted to like this film so badly that I rated this a 5 for simply my enthusiasm and desire to want to like it and the missing 5 is for my disappointment in the reality that it probably has to be one of the worst Bourne films (might even be worse than the Bourne Legacy that didn’t even have Matt Damon in it!). This film was incredibly anti-climatic, even with the one anxiety-driven car chase scene. The plot was weak and the female lead (Vikander) wasn’t even likeable enough to make the film remotely stronger. Also, I have to point out that the part of Bourne’s past that is brought to light and the question he constantly asks throughout the film, leaves you asking the exact same question by the end of the film! I didn’t like the Bourne Legacy because it just seemed so disconnected with the rest of the trilogy. That alone was enough to make it an “unsuccessful Bourne film” (in my opinion at least). THIS film was just an utter disappointment. LOVE Matt Damon and the character of Jason Bourne, but when you have a weak plot and an unlikeable lead character, you’re automatically setting the film up for failure.
