Jack Reacher must uncover the truth behind a major government conspiracy in order to clear his name. On the run as a fugitive from the law, Reacher uncovers a potential secret from his past that could change his life forever.
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
Alicia Vikander was offered the role of Heather at the same time as being offered the role of Sofia in Assassin's Creed (2016). She took the former, due to fan factor - she admitted she is a fan of the series - while the role of Sofia was taken by Marion Cotillard. 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 »
The basic story is good but plot holes are let down. The acting was actually quite good especially for Cassel, Damon and Vikander. Tommy Lee Jones did only so-so and politically correct character played by Essandoh was ridiculous and irritating. The action sequences, locations and fast story were riveting. Camera work, immersion and angles were excellent, especially since most of the shots had minimal CGI. I have to admit that the plot holes did not bothered me as much because it is fast pace movie. There are many reviewers that are complaining about the plot and rightfully so. I'm not sure why such big budget movie did't pay more attention to the movie plot. For Jason Bourne fans this movie will not disappoint. Director Greengrass scored really well on fast pace spy movie.
