Review: 'Jason Bourne' is one trip to the franchise well too many for this spy

2 hours ago | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

In every movie in the Bourne series (except for Legacy), there comes that moment. You know the one. Some shadowy government scumbag is convinced they’ve got the drop on Bourne, and they’re celebrating their accomplishment only to have the phone ring or the computer screen come on just in time for Bourne to tell them that he’s looking at them through a sniper’s scope or he’s recorded them threatening to kill the President or he’s got naked pictures of them and a goat, and as they realize just how screwed they are, here comes the Moby on the soundtrack and there goes Bourne, back into the shadows until next time. The problem is, the charm has definitely faded, and Jason Bourne proves to be one trip too many to the well, lapsing into accidental self-parody in places. There are scenes I dug and a few set-pieces that work, »

'Jason Bourne' Review: Matt Damon Is Back and Badass

7 hours ago | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

Note to Hollywood: July 4th was weeks ago, so screw you for making us wait so long for the real-deal action-movie fireworks. They show up big time in Jason Bourne, that rare summer thrill ride that doesn't sell out to stupid. After nine years, Matt Damon returns to the role of the amnesiac assassin that made him an icon in 2002's The Bourne Identity, 2004's The Bourne Supremacy and 2007's The Bourne Ultimatum. Damon and Paul Greengrass, who directed the hell out of the last two Bourne epics — not including the 2012's The Bourne Legacy, »

Jason Bourne Review: Matt Damon Packs a Timely Punch

12 hours ago | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

The original Bourne trilogy movies (The Bourne Identity, The Bourne Supremacy and The Bourne Ultimatum) are quite noteworthy for a number of different reasons. First and foremost, it solidified Matt Damon as a bona fide movie star, who could open a big budget film on his own, while showcasing the action movie chops no one knew he had. It's also one of the rare movie trilogies to show big improvement each time out at the domestic box office, with The Bourne Identity earning $121.6 million, followed by The Bourne Supremacy's $176.2 million and The Bourne Ultimatum's $227 million. Despite all of this success, it took nine years for Matt Damon and director Paul Greengrass to finally bring this action icon back to the big screen with Jason Bourne, and, thankfully, it was well worth the wait.

No matter how successful the previous entry was, a lengthy wait between movies doesn't often bode well for some franchises. »

First Reviews For Paul Greengrass’ Jason Bourne Are A Mixed Bag

Nipping at the heels of yesterday’s franchise recap, which had Matt Damon himself recount all the major events of the Bourne franchise to date in 90 seconds or less, Universal has lifted the review embargo for Jason Bourne ahead of its theatrical release on Friday, July 29.

Heralding the first mainline installment to be helmed by Paul Greengrass since Ultimatum in 2007, it’s fair to say that these first are a mixed bag, with our own Matt Donato describing Universal’s attempted franchise revival as a “lackluster return” for a series that had long defined the action genre throughout the noughties.

Jason Bourne Review

14 hours ago | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Poor Jeremy Renner and Tony Gilroy – ignored like yesterday’s clearance codes thanks to the voracious hunger of Hollywood’s reboot machine. The duo’s last Bourne entry, The Bourne Legacy, is nothing but a distant (and forgotten) memory thanks to the return of stalwarts Matt Damon and Paul Greengrass to this year’s re-reboot, simply titled Jason Bourne.

Not only does the nomenclature echo a return to franchise normalcy, but it’s also the beginning of a new chapter – dare I say Robert Ludlum’s cinematic adaptations have been Bourne Again?! Don’t worry, Greengrass won’t let you forget that there’s a changing of the guard, as numerous characters hint at the death of old-school mentalities that no longer work. Yet, are the new-school upgrades good enough to warrant however many more years of Bourne we’ll most certainly be enduring?

After a brief recap montage, we »

Jason Bourne movie review: Bourne again, but why?

15 hours ago | www.flickfilosopher.com | See recent FlickFilosopher news »

Everything looks great on paper here: Damon’s brawny presence; the smartly staged action, etc. And it’s not unfun. But it feels less black ops than old hat. I’m “biast” (pro): big fan of the Bourne series

I’m “biast” (con): nothing

(what is this about? see my critic’s minifesto)

It’s been nine years since we last saw Matt Damon racing around the world and beating people up as brainwashed assassin Jason Bourne… and the weight of those interim years rests heavily upon this fourth installment. Oh, it’s not that Damon (The Martian, Interstellar), now 46 years old, isn’t up to the physical demands of the role. In fact, his Bourne is significantly beefier here: bigger, more intimidating, just plain more dangerous in an all-muscle kind of way.

Movie Review – Jason Bourne (2016)

22 hours ago | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Jason Bourne, 2016.

Directed by Paul Greengrass.

Starring Matt Damon, Julia Stiles, Alicia Vikander, Vincent Cassel, Tommy Lee Jones, Ato Essandoh, Riz Ahmed and Scott Shepherd.

Synopsis:

Jason Bourne, now remembering who he truly is, tries to uncover hidden truths about his past.

And like that, we find ourselves being beaten to a bloody pulp once more by chiseled anti-hero Jason Bourne. Nine years after his last punchy outing, sentient beef cake Matt Damon returns, literally punching his way across Europe. Now remembering his true identity, Bourne finds himself back in and amidst the sinister government programmes he so desperately tried to escape. All this as CIA Director Robert Dewey (played with a level of growl only Tommy Lee Jones can achieve) and Heather Lee (Alicia Vikander) attempt to track him down.

Unlike many a blockbuster director, Paul Greengrass, an adept documentarian – seems to encourage physicality; fight sequences look convincingly bruising, »

‘Jason Bourne’ Review: A Useless Sequel Makes the Case For Its Own Irrelevance

22 hours ago | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

All good things come to an end, and once they do, they’re usually better off left that way. So now we have “Jason Bourne,” a sequel to a franchise that didn’t need continuation. The first three chapters in the “Bourne” franchise were a rarity among modern American action movies: smart, fast and fun, they rarely wasted a frame — and best of all, they ended in peak form, with the relentless “The Bourne Ultimatum” in 2007. But the studio had other ideas, pressing ahead with another tale of a brainwashed government henchman rebelling against his overlords in “The Bourne Legacy” after Matt Damon and director Paul Greengrass had their fill. Now Damon and Greengrass have been coaxed back to resuscitate the series’ appeal, but even they can’t seem to muster more than a shrug.

“Ultimatum” ended about as cleanly as this saga could: Bourne, a CIA assassin who goes rogue, »

Film Review: ‘Jason Bourne’

22 hours ago | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Call it a rebirth: Matt Damon is back as Jason Bourne in the franchise’s tough, “this time it’s personal” fifth installment, titled, simply enough, “Jason Bourne.” To the extent that the entire Bourne series hinges on the notion of an amnesiac action hero — one who remembers how to kill with his bare hands but draws blanks on key details about his past — this explosive reunion between Damon and director Paul Greengrass further reveals key secrets about Bourne’s origins, bringing its lethal protagonist as close as he’s ever likely to get to total recall.

Mostly, the project marks a return to what worked about the franchise — namely, Damon — suggesting the relief of watching Sean Connery step back into Bond’s shoes after producers tried to replace him with a suave male model in “On Her Majesty’s Secret Service.” Meanwhile, audiences are expected to forget both “The Bourne Legacy, »

Film Review: Jason Bourne

22 hours ago | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

With the surgical precision of an assassin’s bullet, Paul Greengrass does not miss his target in the new Jason Bourne film—even if he takes the shot three or four times. You see Bourne (Matt Damon) and Nicky Parsons (Julia Stiles) zigzag through burning streets as ruthless killers give chase and a sinister, rifle-wielding gunman awaits on a rooftop. You’ve seen the scene before, and you’ll see it again. And you can probably guess how the story ends.

Tried and true is indeed the name of the game for Jason Bourne, which also means that the filmmakers must up the ante of mayhem to keep it interesting. The familiarity of the scenes is not necessarily a bad thing—who can say no to Greengrass’s masterful command of stunts, sound, and action? But if you’re looking for Bourne to travail new terrains in his adventures—either »

Matt Damon recaps the Bourne movies in just 90 seconds

22 hours ago | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

With Jason Bourne, the fifth movie in the Bourne series hitting cinemas this week (look out for a review on the site at 8am when the worldwide embargo lifts), Matt Damon has taken to YouTube to recap his three movies to give us all a refresh.

Jason Bourne sees original actor and director, Matt Damon and Paul Greengrass, return to the iconic series they created along with Alicia VikanderJulia Stiles, Vincent Cassel and Tommy Lee Jones.

“I remember saying to Matt, ‘But why would we do one after so long? What would be the point of it?’” recalls Greengrass. “I remember him saying this very clearly. He said, ‘Well, because people really want one.’ [laughs]” That privilege struck a chord.

“People would come up to us on the street and always ask, ‘Are you guys going to make another one of these movies?’” adds Damon. “Just that alone, and being »

The Oscar winner, on the loneliness of ‘Bourne,’ her guilty pleasures and possibly being an android herself. Swedish actress Alicia Vikander (pronounced "ah-lee-see-ah vih-kander") is easily one of the most talented young women working in movies today. Although familiar to European and British audiences since 2010, she's a fairly new face to American moviegoers. In the brilliant 2015 sci-fi film Ex Machina, Vikander played an android named Ava who will do...

Mandy Moore’s Shark Tale ’47 Meters Down’ Bought From Weinsteins

25 July 2016 3:23 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Entertainment Studios has bought North American rights to Mandy Moore’s survival adventure “47 Meters Down” from the Bob and Harvey Weinsteins’ Dimension Films.

The company is planning for a 2017 release through its recently purchased theatrical distribution company Freestyle Releasing.

Moore and Claire Holt star as adventure-seeking sisters who go cage-diving while on vacation in Mexico. Much to their horror, the cage breaks away from the boat and leaves them trapped at the bottom of the ocean surrounded by hungry Great White sharks, forcing them to swim 47 meters to the surface while being hunted by the sharks.

“47 Meters Down” also stars Matthew Modine and is directed by Johannes Roberts.  Mark Lane and James Harris produced with Bob and Harvey Weinstein as executive producers.

Entertainment Studio has a multi-year output deal with Netflix and recently closed a multi-year home entertainment output deal with Anchor Bay/Starz with the announcement of acquiring, producing, »

Matt Damon Recaps Entire Bourne Trilogy In 90 Seconds Ahead Of Imminent Reboot

25 July 2016 2:22 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Operation Treadstone. Blackbriar. David Webb. It’s fair to say that parsing the lore of one Jason Bourne can prove quite difficult, particularly if you haven’t checked in on Matt Damon’s elusive super-spy since Ultimatum in 2007.

Leave it to Damon, then, to get you up to speed on all things Jason Bourne by recapping Universal’s celebrated action franchise in 90 seconds or less. Quietly ignoring the mooted spinoff of Legacy, the series stalwart recounts the events of Identity, Supremacy and Ultimatum. It’s the CliffNotes version, essentially, and though we wouldn’t consider it an out-an-out alternative to marathoning all three movies, it’s a concise info dump for those who have forgotten some pertinent details in the intervening years.
