    I didn't have any major expectations but still came away rather disappointed. For all its endless high-speed chases, quick-cut fights and poring over computer screens, the film ends up committing the worst summer movie offense of all: it is dull for long stretches of time.

    The script gives us little reason to root for any of the characters (least of all Jason Bourne), and the endless globe-hopping and sometimes spectacular stunts do little to hide the fact that the story is just running in circles:
    - move to new metropol
    - look at screens
    - CIA shouting and frowning
    - launch SWAT team
    - let Bourne take them down.
    - repeat
    Admittedly, the opening shows Greengrass doing what he does best, and there are some neat bits here and there, but by and large there are a lot of talented actors here just running on auto-pilot. The inspiration from Snowden is a welcome addition but never amounts to much - the all-seeing, all-knowing CIA could stick bugs up his nostrils and Bourne would still be able to evade them, like a modern day McGyver always being able to grab something nearby and override the systems.

    As a fan of the first three entries in the series, this is a disappointing and pointless new chapter.

    Is that really the title? I was expecting something more interesting. The Bourne Repetition, perhaps. 7 years 11 months ago

    Worst in the series. As others are saying, all the action in the world can't make up for a lack of a decent plot. 7 years 8 months ago
