When Tommy Lee Jones' character sees Bourne on the screen in Athens the first time, he says: "It's David Bourne." This is a conflation of Jason Bourne and David Webb. 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.
