Bourne is back. With Matt Damon returning to the franchise after 2012’s sub-par reboot The Bourne Legacy, this latest installment sticks to the tried and true formula of the genre it helped redefine over a decade ago. That’s not to say Jason Bourne is a disappointment. The film manages to keeps an exciting and relentless pace throughout, it just never really reaches new heights. To be honest it doesn’t even feel like it aimed to do so. We all know what to expect from a Bourne film at this stage, and that’s exactly what it delivers. No more, no less.
