Jason Bourne

There are only a few scenes to catch one’s breath in Writer/Director Paul Greengrass’s taut, action thriller Jason Bourne.
In a year when sequels have, for the large part, not been delivering the impact of the original works, Jason Bourne has all the impact of its predecessors…plus the welcome addition of the fabulous Alicia Vikander.

Though non-viewers of the previous Bourne films might be a bit in the dark on the background of some of the franchise’s characters, they will, soon, be swept up in the pulsing action beautifully hyped by the music of composers David Buckley and John Powell.

The beauty of Greengrass’s direction, as opposed to some of the recent action thrillers, is that the viewer always knows who Cinematographer Barry Ackroyd’s camera is following no matter how much action is going on.

Matt Damon, Alicia Vikander, Tommy Lee Jones, Julia Stiles and Vincent Cassel are all at the top of their game.
If you like thrillers, you’ll really like this film.  If you like Bourne thrillers, you’ll love it.

I give Jason Bourne a 4.6 out of 5.
