I loved the first movie, The Bourne Identity, directed by Doug Liman, but then felt that Paul Greengrass made such a bog-standard pedestrian hash of The Bourne Supremacy and The Bourne Ultimatum. Tony Gilroy’s The Bourne Legacy, with Jeremy Renner as Aaron Cross, was even worse. This time, they can’t even come up with a title, and there’s certainly no original Robert Ludlum novel to work off, just his characters, so I hold out little hope for this.
Greengrass wrote his script with Christopher Rouse, and the film also stars Ex Machina‘s Alicia Vikander, plus Tommy Lee Jones, Vincent Cassel, Riz Ahmed, Bill Camp and Julia Stiles returns to the franchise as Nicky.
Jason Yawn…, sorry, Jason Bourne is released in UK cinemas on July 28th.
