I like movies that are aware of what they are selling... without [any] greater aspirations than to make people laugh and that's it.
I cannot think of one single thing that I would change about this film. The acting is incomparable, the directing deft, and the writing poignantly brilliant.
This is a dark and sometimes deeply uncomfortable drama
By the time the dramatic fireworks start popping off, each one feels earned.
Buy a bloody tripod. Shaky hand held camera work detracts in a big way.
They try so hard to make the action like the originals but it feel more like a jerry bruckheimer movvie mixed with 24, and put a lot of edgy young people that try to be "expert-cool-character"(to be honest, it feels like anime cliche), that doesn't fit in the bourne's movies, a lot of situations that doesn't make sense or doesn't fell fitting. I have tried to watch the whole movie but i can't. I think that the series was pretty damn good with just 3 movies that begin and finish the bourne situation, my recomendations is, that if yoy never have the chance to watch the three movies from the original trilogy, try this one is a good generic action movie but not a good asthe OG trilogy.
The story was okay and simple. Sure, not believable but the whole film breaks all the laws, including the laws of physics and of biology. Great action all over with not too much CGI.
I never wrote a movie review but somehow felt compelled after watching this and feeling what a waste of time it is to watch such rubbish. We have a real void in our lives that we try to fill by consuming all these movies that hollywood keeps rolling out. We spend billions of dollars to fuel this entertainment industry. Sure it's nice to see a great movie, but how many great movies are there really ? Pretty much the same stories are getting churned over and over. It even seems foolish or sad that we buy into all these make believe stories and spend so many hours of our time because we have nothing better to do. I'm just as guilty of it as anyone else. But after watching this poor, poor movie I feel I really have to get a life. If anything I credit to this movie I would say that it is pretty amazing how they do these realistic looking action scenes where dozens of buildings and cars are destroyed in a place like Las Vegas. How they do it I don't know. If it's done on computers it's still amazing it looks so real.Thing is they can really do anything in movies and make it look realistic, but they rarely use this ability to present wonderful & meaningful stories. There's only so much you can be entertained by merely shooting & explosions. Hollywood has a serious creative void and pretty much all the great stories have already been told. Terminator for example, one of the all time great movies, and Back to the Future; the concept of time travel is wonderful and these movies did it great. But there's only so many times you can do it. DC's Legends of Tomorrow is cranking out a whole tv series based on time travel, and it's pretty ok but after seeing several episodes it gets to be a bore. Perhaps if you're a tv/movie junky you never get bored with all this stuff, but for me there's only so much I can take. And after seeing this Jason Bourne I just feel fed up with movies. The other Bourne movies were pretty good, but the only good thing about this last one is that it served as an awakening that I need to get a life. That goes for the vast majority of movies and tv, just a waste of life.Even some of the all time highest rated movies considered as classics like Pulp Fiction and Goodfellas, I don't get it. For me it's total rubbish. Yeah Goodfellas did a nice job portraying the old school Italian New York neighborhood, but otherwise just a bunch of profanity and violence. How great, how legendary. And our society just eats it up and basically glorifies criminals. And we wonder why our world is so violent. President Obama even gave an award to DeNero for such performances. Anyhow, enough ranting I just gotta give movie watching a rest and find something better to do.
