It's been a while since I've seen the Bourne films, but I do remember liking them all. Before going to the movie, I watched the "Jason Bourne in 90 Seconds" featurette, but ended up finding it unnecessary.
The film was much less intelligent than I remember the other films in the series being. It was really generic. I also found that the series has began to tell the same story over and over again: Jason Bourne has to shut down a corrupt secret government program. It's not the most exciting action film, but it managed to keep me interested.
The acting of the film ws its strong suit. Matt Damon is obviously good as Jason Bourne, but I am going to talk more about the supporting cast. Alicia Vikander was a welcome addition. She played an intelligent, strong female character, which falls right into her comfort zone. Tommy Lee Jones is also good as the antagonist of the film.
The action sequences of the film are well-done, but aren't anything particularly special. The cinematography is very good, as is the score, but they don't compare to a lot of other action films, like the James Bond series or "Mad Max: Fury Road".
Overall, "Jason Bourne" was an enjoyable, well-acted film that didn't really have anything wrong other than the fact that it was unoriginal. Fans of the series may notice that it isn't as intelligent as the others, but will likely still enjoy the return of the character to the big screen.
