Former Treadstone agent-turned-hacker Nicky Parsons (played by Julia Stiles) somehow managed to get black ops files from the CIA and delivers this information to Bourne, who has gone underground and making his living by as a contender in an underground fight league. After he discovered part of his past, the film becomes a big, long chase movie Bourne running/fighting against an unnamed “Asset” (played by Vincent Cassel).
The best part of the film was having Matt Damon back as Jason Bourne. Unfortunately, I wasn’t fond of the way Paul Greengrass directs his films. Sometime action and car chases were hard to follow because of Greengrass’ handheld “shaky cam” style, which he is known for.
If you’ve already seen the first three Bourne films, I do suggest finishing out the series with Jason Bourne. It’s not my favorite film of the series, but it does conclude the story nicely... leaving it open for Bourne to possibly come back in another film.
Jason Bourne is set to release to theaters this Friday, July 29, 2016, by Universal Pictures.
