Storyline

When a British reporter was writing an expose about Black Ops operations Treadstone and Black Briar, and the ones responsible for them are concerned. And when Jason Bourne, former Treadstone operative got the file on Treadstone and Black Briar and gave it to Pamela Landy who then passed it to the media. When the men behind Treadstone and Black Briar learn of this, they're concerned how this will affect other ops they have. They decide it's best to shut down all ops and make sure make everyone involved disappears. They try to take out Aaron Cross who is part of another op called Outcome, but he manages to survive. He then seeks out Dr. Marta Shearing who worked on him when he began. It seems part of the program is for all subjects to take medications but he has run out, which is why he seeks her.

Quotes

Byer: We are the sin eaters. It means that we take the moral excrement we find in this equation and we bury it down deep inside of us, so that the rest of our case can stay pure. That is the job. We are morally indefensible, and absolutely necessary.

Decent piece of action / thrillers - but where's Bourne??
27 September 2012 | by gwilson1982See all my reviews

What's this film got to do with Bourne? Not much, that's for sure. There are some flashbacks to the previous films, some hints of a relationship, but those are more confusing than helpful. The fourth part of the trilogy is almost like trying to attach a second tail to a dog. Or fifth wheel to a car. Or a... You get the point. Without the Bourne name, it would have been yet another action thriller, the same as everything else. The plot is straightforward, get item A, go to point B, fight bad guy C.

But does this make it a bad film then? Not really. It's still enjoyable entertainment for a night out in cinemas. The main actors are great, things are happening, the pace is solid and entertainment wise you have no been short-changed. There is enough action and tension in the film, not the least in how the secret government agency goes forth in its information gathering activities. The chase scene towards the end is a bit uninspired though - except for the very final part. Go watch it, but don't expect it to be as good as the first Bourne film.
