The recently released Jason Bourne is the fifth installment of the Bourne film series starring Matt Damon, Tommy Lee Jones, Alicia Vikander, Vincent Cassel, Julia Stiles and Riz Ahmed in the cast.
Jason Bourne, a victim to amnesia syndrome, lives in a position without knowing about himself. He earns for his living by participating in illegal fighting rings. One day, the main server of the CIA has been hacked by Jason’s old friend and analyst Nicky Parsons. During that process, she is able to collect the secret documents containing the death details of Bourne’s father who was a former CIA.
Nicky travels to Bourne’s place to hand over the documents but she gets killed by the enemy gang that follows her. Before her death she gives a key to Bourne and the rest of the story narrates whether Bourne comes out successful in revenging the culprits who killed his father.
Normally, the fast moving screenplay and the high octane thriller chases provide the major attractions in Jason Bourne series but this film fails to provide both. Hero Matt Damon has less dialogue but Alicia Vikander fills up the silence by talking throughout the film. The CIA director Tommy Lee Jones and their asset Vincent Cassel make efforts to kill Jason Boune. But, since the previous installments have made it clear that Bourne is unbeatable and with the repetitive and predictable sequences, nothing makes the audience enjoy the movie.
The fight scenes add strength to the movie. The 20 minute chasing scene that is pictured amidst the violent protest in Greece is mind blowing. The continuity in the cinematography and the crisp editing have made the sequence picture perfect.
On the whole, Jason Bourne looks inactive
