UK English in the US government: on the computer screen about 7 minutes into the movie, when the government server is being breached: "DEPENDANT: JASON BOURNE" is shown. should be "DEPENDENT:..." Dependant is a UK spelling. It's also a common typo in the US. See more »
I re-watched the old ones before going to see this in the theater, and in my opinion, this is the worst Bourne movie.
My 2 main problems with this one:
1) The plot is stupid. The whole "hacker" part was probably written by somebody who's still using a typewriter. All the previous films had a computer room full of furiously typing agents too, but those were thankfully never the main focus. The focus used to be on Jason Bourne's ability to creatively solve seemingly hopeless situations. This film has it the wrong way around. It tries to be about computer hacking and data privacy, and does all of that wrong too.
2) The cinematography is awful. Watching this on a big screen will give you motion sickness. You can never tell what's going on during most of the action scenes, because it's all shaky cam close-ups.
Do yourself a favor, and watch the 3rd one again instead. The perfect end of the trilogy.
