Stomach-churning camera movement does not equal suspense

Matt Damon is one of the finest actors of his generation.
Unfortunately, in this film, he is once again paired with a director
who follows the television commercial fad of herky-jerky camera
movements, with constant zooming in-and-out, panning right-and-left,
all at light-speed, and all of it meant to imply suspense or drama or
"documentary", when in fact all it reveals is a director who is forced
to rely on trickery and nausea-inducing camera motion to compensate for
poor material. Matt, please pick a better script, and choose a director
who is self-confident enough to stabilize the camera on a tripod so
that we aren't taken on yet another corkscrew roller-coaster "action"
