I thought this entire movie was uninspiring, predictable, and taxing. 124 Minutes of action scenes and high-pitched music don't make for an interesting movie. Tommy Lee Jones is 69 years-old and looks every one of them. The current motif is to insinuate the it is always the person at the top of the agency, CIA here, is evil minded and must be stopped at all costs. This movie belongs to people who love conspiracy-theory. But I thought it a sandwich with no real meat. And, to make Jason Bourne, a sort of cage-fighter in Russia is ridiculous. Also, the hits Bourne takes from a car crash, a motorcycle crash, and just plain beat-down scenes only to keep on going like a Timex watch is silly. I'm glad I didn't have to spend any money to see this is a theater. Robert Ludlum probably would groan at what Hollywood has done to his works covering Jason Bourne.

Matt Damon is back. Good movie, fast paced action throughout with some fact finding discovery for Jason Bourne. Anticipating the next part of the next movie. What will Jason Bourne do now?

I like the first two Bourne movies, but this one is horrible. Really, really horrible.

Not up to the past 3 installments-too dependent on chase sequences. Vegas car chase too over the top to be interesting. Our hero deserves a much better story line than he was given.

Brutally bad sequel -
I enjoyed the original trilogy because there was real character development and all of the stunts were at least conceivably possible. This movie is a pastiche of bad acting, non existing plot, and really terrible stunts ( the SWAT van through butter, the high speed chase though a Greek riot with no one getting creamed-LOL)
I picked this up at my local branch off the rack and after watching it I can't believe there are 30+ people waiting to borrow it. Save two hours and skip this -

Bourne is back in another film full of car chases, guns, hand-to-hand combat, and a whole lot of video surveillance. The opinions from my household were overall quite positive, largely thanks to the fact that this one managed to pick back up on much of the tried-and-true content of the original trilogy, making it better than the "The Bourne Legacy." On the other hand, it unfortunately lacked much character development for Bourne, so it was exciting, but it felt a bit shallow, with all of the action and none of the emotional connection viewers felt for Bourne in the original trilogy.

Watchable but way too many holes in the plot. I think they should retire the Bourne story.

I am in agreement with the commentators below. The fourth installment in the Bourne franchise is definitely the weakest. Director Greengrass is coloring by numbers here, reprising past films. Watching JASON BOURNE I realized that the Bourne movies share the following: Big car/motorcycle chase at the beginning followed by a big climaxing car chase at the end; in between, lots of mixed-martial-arts fighting; fuzzy memory flashbacks; secret CIA super assassin programs; computer surveillance.

This film feels like they looked at the previous films and said "What are the popular bits of the franchise?" They settled on frantic editing pace, killing off the girl early, lots of punching and moody men walking through various European cities.
A decent plot and script and some characterisation would have been more useful.

A successful film requires a compelling plot and proper casting. Tommy Lee Jones is too old to play CIA Director Robert Dewey. Alicia Vikander is too young to play Heather Lee, a CIA operations supervisor. A big mistake was not bringing back Joan Allen as CIA Deputy Director Pamela Landy. And the CIA assassin did not look intimidating enough.

IMHO, I would rate "Jason Bourne" at no more than 2.0 stars. The future of the Bourne franchise is in serious trouble. If you want to see a good Bourne film, then watch The Bourne Supremacy again.

In early 2016, the cast and crew moved to Las Vegas, where an immense car chase played out. It involved around 200 cars (150 with extras and 50 with stunt drivers), some of the lanes along the famous Strip being closed, and four weeks’ of rehearsals:
