Star Cast : Matt Damon, Tommy Lee Jones, Alicia Vikander, Vincent Cassel, Julia Stiles, Riz Ahmed
Directed by : Paul Greengrass
Genre : Action
Duration : 2 hours 3 minutes

Paul Greengrass and Matt Damon together return to the 15-year-old franchise they made their own with this new outing that has Jason Bourne (Matt Damon), the former CIA rogue assassin, resurfacing years after the events of ‘The Bourne Ultimatum’, just as his former employers are bent on implementing a new program aimed at hunting him down.

This is Jason Bourne’s fifth film on the run, four of which have actually featured Bourne, and Damon as him, trying to escape the CIA and his bloody past therein. Greengrass has directed two previous ones.

Jason Bourne is a standalone action film, it is pretty entertaining and makes for a good watch, but when we compared to the previous films in the series, the film turns out to be just another run-of-the-mill Bourne film.
