Jason Bourne (Blu-ray + DVD + Digital HD)
The most dangerous former operative of the CIA is drawn out of hiding to uncover hidden truths about his past.
Jason Bourne was reportedly photographed with a myriad of sources, but film appears its predominant format. The image wrangles up some terrific details, clear even through the movie's shaky-cam jerks and jitters and zooms. Facial detailing is resplendently complex, presenting some seriously intimate images of pores, stubble, age wear, and even some blood. Environments are sparkling, evident even at night or in lower light conditions. Dense cities and closed-in command and control centers reveal plenty of finer point details along façades for the former and monitors and equipment for the latter. Colors are bold and true, again even in lower light conditions where saturation and nuance are outstanding. Black levels hold naturally deep without crush and flesh tones appear well saturated and healthy. The image sports no immediately obvious encode maladies. Grain can be a little thick, but it's evenly distributed and the transfer enjoys a quality filmic appearance.

Jason Bourne's DTS:X soundtrack demonstrates clear and capable command of the material and the listening area. The track feels consistently immersive to the entire 360-degrees, as well as integrating a nicely balanced and never forced or intrusive overhead support structure. Music is full bodied and clear, effortlessly positioned around the listener while maintaining lifelike definition throughout the range, including a healthy and supportive low end. Flashback scenes offer a nice burst of ghostly reverberation and random positioning around the stage. Frenzied din at busy locations, like protests on the streets of Athens, feature prominently and, like the music, take full advantage of every speaker in the configuration to draw the listener into the mayhem. Lighter elements and more serene location-specific environmental details always play with rich clarity that draws the lister in. Action scenes maintain a fine level of detail even through the chaos and aggressive volume and posturing. Stage balance is amazing, and the listener is always directionally aware throughout. Overheads carry some quality supportive details, like helicopter rotors which are smoothly integrated into the greater whole. Dialogue is firmly placed in the center with its only escape during naturally occurring moments of reverberation.
Matt Damon returns to his most iconic role in Jason Bourne. Paul Greengrass, the director of The Bourne Supremacy and The Bourne Ultimatum, once again joins Damon for the next chapter of Universal Pictures' Bourne franchise, which finds the CIA's most lethal operative drawn out of the shadows. Damon is joined by Alicia Vikander, Vincent Cassel and Tommy Lee Jones, while Julia Stiles reprises her role in the series.

Jason Bourne resurfaces ten years after he was last seen jumping from the top of a building into the East River in New York City. He’s still searching for answers to who he is and how he was recruited into the CIA’s “Treadstone” black ops program. Now, with new information given him by former Agency operative Nicky Parsons, Bourne may finally get some answers. He soon finds himself pitted against an array of new enemies within the CIA, including the head of the Cyber Ops Division, an “Asset” with a grudge assigned to find him and kill him, and even the CIA Director himself.
Now that I’ve watched all five Jason Bourne films in sequence, it’s become clear to me just how formulaic this franchise has become over fifteen years. Each movie contains the following elements (not necessarily in any particular order): a confused, bemused protagonist on the run from unknown and unseen enemies; someone of senior rank within the CIA obsessively trying to kill him, usually by sending ruthless, robotic “assets” after him; and someone else – always a beautiful woman – within the Agency, or with close ties to it, that tries to help him in some way. There’s also the inevitable (and very well executed) car chase through a major city, and many guns and other hi-tech gadgetry on display throughout each film.
Now, I’m not saying that being formulaic is necessarily a bad thing; on the contrary, I think it’s a key to the Jason Bourne franchise’s success. While the plot of “Jason Bourne” does seem a bit frayed around the edges, so is Jason Bourne himself. Here’s a man worn down by fifteen years of being on the run for reasons he doesn’t fully understand. He’s weary, but he’s determined to end this – on his terms. But he may not get the chance…
I thoroughly enjoyed “Jason Bourne.” It’s every bit as exciting, tense, and taut as its predecessors. And while it may be a bit predictable in places, it still kept me guessing as to its eventual outcome. Excellent entertainment, highly recommended. (4½ Stars ^ 5)
I just feel like everyone settled for what they knew wasn't stellar, for a cash grab, the whole thing should have gone back to the drawing board, its a lousy script.
The movie starts off with pure promise... then the action turns into what should be the climax, which is pretty stellar then it's all downhill from there, tedious, sloppy, and uninspired is the culmination, where to begin...
The assassin was about as charasmatic as a wet dish rag no charisma like the other movies assassins,
Huge huge mistake to kill Nikki in the beginning, the other chic doesn't have the presence or chops to pull the role off, essentially she's Nikki retrofitted, and she's flat, monotone and unintersting, essentially a cardboard cutout of Nikki and
Tommy Lee Jones is underdeveloped and never really fleshed our as a character nor is the tech guru or that storyline attatched.
Matt Damon is solid, it's just everything surrounding him, the supporting cast and story that don't meet standards.... Oh, and at the finale it seems like the dude in the editing booth of differing camera angles had a conniption fit, at the final chase literally every 2 seconds it would switch shots for 10 minutes straight, I thought I was going to have a seizure,
Had loads of potential but dissapointingly failed on many levels
Do not, I repeat Do not waste your time or money on this, just grab a frying pan and smack yourself in the head a few times, that about sums up the experience anyway...
"I *wouldn't* stand in line for this" ... sorry Moby. "Then it fell apart..." right Moby
Car chases with spectacular driving in “common” vehicles
Brutal hand-to-hand combat using everyday items
Shaky camera movement during action sequences
“The chase” where eventually the protagonist gets away, achieves his objective and escapes into the shadows once again
Because the Bourne films are so formulaic, I found Jason Bourne (2016) to be no different. That being said, the film was still a fun and intense ride to watch. Now nine years later from the last in the “true” Bourne storyline (we’ll just forget that The Bourne Legacy (2012) happened), technology has vastly improved, making this film seem more like a crossover of James Bond and Person of Interest. This, I feel, was Jason Bourne’s strength. Casting the incomparable Alicia Vikander (hot in her burgeoning career), was a smart choice and made this film enter the “new era of espionage.”
Furthermore, including the subplot focusing on technological privacy pulled straight from our current events helped to pin this film into the collective popular culture in which we now live, instead of just being a series of chases in foreign lands. I also appreciated the inclusion of some semblance of a plot in this film, as it felt like Jason Bourne (Matt Damon) had not gotten very many answers in the last three films. At least this time around we learn something about him and his motivation; since the amnesiac super-soldier archetype can really only go so far.
Another great Bourne film with a contemporary twist, I give Jason Bourne 4.0 stars out of 5.
