Armed with a license to kill, Secret Agent James Bond sets out on his first mission as 007, and must defeat a private banker to terrorists in a high stakes game of poker at Casino Royale, Montenegro, but things are not what they seem.
Jason Bourne is again being hunted by the CIA. It begins when Nicky Parsons a former CIA operative who helped Bourne, who went under and now works with a man who's a whistle blower and is out to expose the CIA's black ops. Nicky hacks into the CIA and downloads everything on all their Black Ops, including Treadstone which Bourne was a part of. And Heather Lee, a CIA agent, discovers the hack and brings it to the attention of CIA Director Dewey, the man behind the Black Ops. He orders Parsons be found and, hopefully, Bourne, too.Written by
Many pieces of footage and dialogue in the trailers do not appear in the final film or alternative takes were used. Notable examples are: The final film uses a different take of Bourne's one punch knockout. Nicky does not say, "Just because you remember everything doesn't mean you know everything." New character Craig Jeffers does not say, "Oh my god, that's Jason Bourne." See more »
When Bourne is reading the computer files after the fight scene in Berlin you see an address displayed using the American convention, as opposed to British. Also, the postcode would not read just WC2, which is in fact "West Central". All postcodes at the Paddington Basin start with W2 (West 2). See more »
Lacklustre story line lacking intelligence, dialogue, and character development.
I am a big fan of the franchise and my expectations may have been too high for this sequel. Was hoping for same kind of substance and kept waiting for something impressively unexpected, like previous. Legacy was a better film. Even fight scenes and car chases from all previous had a different "feel" than typical action films, but formula made these redundant and confusing, not fun like others. The predictable plot had me thinking, hoping for intelligent twist that did not happen. It's a good rental I suppose.
