Directed by Paul Greengrass

Jason Bourne is a badass, we got that when we went through the first trilogy in the Bourne franchise, now he decided to go back for revenge upon information getting to him that there is more to him being Bourne than he knows. When watching I recalled we had this Bourne revenge story covered that in the last movie in the trilogy.
This was a totally unnecessary sequel, and it marred the idea that Bourne had dropped off the grid totally, add that to the plot that wasn’t much of a continuation of the third movie in the trilogy, I was sitting through this movie asking myself why have they decided to wreck this franchise with such a lame plot.

The movie plot is based on Bourne trying to get closure for his father’s death, one would think he had already

The new Jason Bourne movie, is the fifth in the franchise and the fourth to star Matt Damon as the titular character Jason Bourne. Based on the character Jason Bourne created by writer Robert Ludlum in his Bourne book series.

Now if you have enjoyed the first three Bourne movies which were great movies, get ready for more of the same thing. The movie was not dull I must say, but after watching the trilogy I already knew how badass Bourne is and his ability to get out of sticky situations is already stamped in my mind. So seeing him do it numerous times in this movie was not a surprise to me.
The fights scenes were swallowed by the high speed chases and the numerous back stabbing going on in the CIA, making sure that the only way to be excited in this movie is when you are already pumped with sugar prior to sitting down at the cinema.

In this here movie we see Bourne taking part in illegal fighting rings to make money for a living.

Nicky Parsons (Julia Stiles), hacks into the CIA's mainframe server in order to expose more of the CIA's black ops programs. She stumbles upon Bourne's recruitment into the Treadstone program to discover that Bourne's father had a major role in the program.

She travels to Greece to inform Bourne of what she found (it is odd that Bourne who is supposed to be off the gird was easily located by her, the strange part is not that maybe he told her where he would be. If that was the case, then she would have met him at his apartment.).

Parson’s hack didn't go unnoticed by the CIA who now setup a task force to bring her in, and when they discovered that Bourne was involved, the task force was not charged to bring him in, while someone else in the task force was bent on killing him.

I hope this would be the last we see Bourne on the screen, if not I hope his return will be based on a better story than the one we were served here.
