Jason Bourne (2016)

This was like both a standalone segment and a sequel of the Bourne franchise, but it feels like the final piece this time. If they do add more now it'll just be unnecessary. It starts well, and ends well, and features some crazy chases, action sequences (realistic as always) and one grand conspiracy in the middle of it all.

The theme on privacy in our digitalized world feels relevant, though I expected it to have a bigger impact on the plot, and more so: on Jason. He's as professional as always, and unaffected by any potential tracking devices and technological enhancements they may be digging up. Though why wouldn't he? It's realism after all, not science fiction. He knows what he's doing, and technology isn't omniscient yet.

The plot's not just about a big conspiracy, but also about him digging up a piece of his past, and it being a puzzle piece that just so happens to fit in perfectly with the otherwise non-related scheme and give him motives for vengeance is a bit too predictable... but it's still a great movie. Not a classic. Not like the original trilogy. Not in essence, but in content. It's worth the title.

    there better be a sixth final Bourne movie, one that unites the Renner and Damon characters. Continue with the gradual inclusion of mild sci-fi elements. Also, some ambiguity as to whether Vikander is an antagonist(with the CIA) or not. Renner and Damon are getting old though- so they better hurry and get to producing.

    Well, there are still 10 books from the Bourne series for film content- I think this screenplay was entirely original though. It's a parallel sequel with the fourth film to the original trilogy.

    I think the fourth film was the best of them all. best music, and no more overuse of shaky camera which muddled some of the action scenes in the Damon Bourne movies.

    Hmm I don't think the two of them were ever meant to be together! But that would be interesting...

    Didn't know this was based on books too. Gotta read those some time. I did like the fourth but at the same time I really missed the old Jason. Renner's good but: different.

    Seems they're going for sales more than continuity now though, after the fourth went as it did. I'd be surprised if they keep this going further if they deviated from the books too. :/ But I wouldn't mind one.
