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
The room number that the hotel in Vegas gives Lee when she arrives is 2016, the year the movie was released. See more »
When Robert Dewey is introduced in the film in McLean, he is seen packing files away into a briefcase on his desk, and then having a phone conversation with Jeffers about the leak that has occurred. However, visible on Dewey's desk is a pad of paper with his mobile phone on, and the first sheet on that pad clearly has the scripted lines for Dewey's side of the phone call handwritten on them, possibly written by Tommy Lee Jones so he could remember his lines or read them between takes and then accidentally left in shot.

This was a big letdown, I'd had been looking foreword to it for ages too but for the most part this was boring, the story line was... nothing... a same ole Bourne is trying to find out about his past, people in an office looking at computers trying to find him. Just flat, predictable and redundant.
Tommy Lee Jones, wow was he even present for filming? He was just going through the motions here and appeared to shoot most of his scenes from his living room as he's on his own, on the phone or seated at a desk, appearing grumpy (as per) and bored.
Even the synopsis is dull "The CIA's most dangerous former operative is drawn out of hiding to uncover more explosive truths about his past." Meh.
On the plus there are some decent fight scenes, car chases as expected, an exciting motorcycle chase and a great bad guy with Vincent Cassel but nothing stand out or special there, everyone is just going through the motions.
Maybe I should give this another try, did I miss something?
