Jason Bourne

This fifth entry in the Bourne series sees Matt Damon return to his role as a former assassin still in hiding, alongside Oscar-winners Alicia Vikander and Tommy Lee Jones and director Paul Greengrass.

Living a life off the grid by subsisting on the earnings of street fighting, Jason Bourne (Damon) is drawn back into the murky world of US intelligence operations. As an eager up-and-comer (Vikander) seeks to prove her mettle by bringing him in, long-buried secrets continue to keep a price on Bourne's head. Playing a deadly game of cat and mouse with an opponent even better-resourced than before, Bourne's journey takes him from the epicentre of the Mediterreanean refugee crisis, to anti-austerity protests in Greece, and ultimately Las Vegas.

A lot’s changed in the past decade since Matt Damon’s last outing as Bourne. Geopolitically, the world’s a bloody shambles, which offers plenty of fresh backdrops to a new dose of assassin intrigue. And, despite studios’ best efforts, there have been no new spy/action tentpoles dominating cinemas, unless you count continuing installments of the Bond, Mission: Impossible and Fast & Furious franchises (definitely disregard The Bourne Legacy, everybody else has).

Leagues ahead of Legacy but the weakest of the Matt Damon movies, Bourne still has the power to thrill. But it seems his story has run out of steam.

Hunting Bourne is more than ever a business now, with a bottom line to worry about, a crowd to please, and presumably hasty deadlines to meet.

The Snowden/social media plotline of this film does a bit to make Bourne more relevant. But the ingredients are basically the same.

Basically amounts to a trio of action set-pieces elegantly strung together. But who really cares when they’re this impressive?
