Jason Bourne


Matt Damon is back in action packed form as the CIA's most dangerous undercover operative in JASON BOURNE.

Luckily for us, Damon has paired up again with Director Paul Greengrass (Bourne Ultimatum, United 93) for an incredibly fast moving, globe hopping story.

As the film opens Bourne is in hiding in the outskirts of the world, fighting for money and off the grid.

When his former girlfriend and computer whiz Nicky (Julia Stiles) finds him and shares secrets that directly relate to Bourne's past and his father, Bourne is off on a slam-bang action tour of the world in search of the truth.

A very grizzled Tommy Lee Jones returns as CIA Director Dewey, determined at all costs to keep Bourne's secrets buried.

The superb Alicia Vikander (Ex Machina, The Man from UNCLE) stars as the leading CIA agent who may have loyalties to Bourne (it's always "may" in the Bourne films) and Vincent Cassel is known only as Asset. He is Bourne's main physical adversary and is a formidable one. Cassel and Damon's hand to hand fight that concludes the film is one of the best ever filmed, ranking right up there with Connery and Shaw in "From Russia With Love" for all time best fight scene.

The car chase scene in Las Vegas is fantastic, reminding us once again how Director Greengrass is one of our best filmmakers when it comes to creating action scenes that are literally jaw dropping.

At just over two hours, BOURNE feels more like 90 minutes. As the credits started to roll, Tamara and I couldn't believe it was already over.

If the name wasn't already taken, this should have been called BOURNE FAST & FURIOUS, a near perfect blend of world wide intrigue, high tech computer tracking and old fashioned action.

Bourne is Back and gets an A.
