The film is set in mid-October, as clearly indicated in multiple shots of iPhone screens during the Las Vegas sequence (all of which display the date as October 20, and most of the film's action takes place before then). However, nearly every exterior scene (aside from warmer-weather locations like Greece and Las Vegas) appears to have been filmed in late autumn or winter. The establishing shots for the CIA's Northern Virginia headquarters, for instance, show a blanket of snow on the ground, and the scenes filmed in Washington, D.C. have visibly barren trees. In reality, leaves in that area of the U.S. do not begin to change color, let alone fall off of trees, until November, and it never snows that early in the year in the mid-Atlantic region. See more »
I re-watched the old ones before going to see this in the theater, and in my opinion, this is the worst Bourne movie.
My 2 main problems with this one:
1) The plot is stupid. The whole "hacker" part was probably written by somebody who's still using a typewriter. All the previous films had a computer room full of furiously typing agents too, but those were thankfully never the main focus. The focus used to be on Jason Bourne's ability to creatively solve seemingly hopeless situations. This film has it the wrong way around. It tries to be about computer hacking and data privacy, and does all of that wrong too.
2) The cinematography is awful. Watching this on a big screen will give you motion sickness. You can never tell what's going on during most of the action scenes, because it's all shaky cam close-ups.
Do yourself a favor, and watch the 3rd one again instead. The perfect end of the trilogy.
