One says it’s ‘the best the series has yet offered’
(NEWSER) – Jason Bourne returns from what was believed to be a watery grave to surprise the CIA in the fifth Bourne installment and fourth starring Matt Damon. In this flick, Bourne is bent on discovering the story behind his initial recruitment. Critics are mostly split. Here’s what they’re saying:
- “Jason Bourne is more than a just worthy addition to a popular franchise—it’s the cherry on the top” and “the best the series has yet offered,” writes James Berardinelli at ReelViews. It has the same format as its predecessors but “a relentless intensity” that’s unmatched. In fact, “when it comes to keeping audiences uncertain and white-knuckled, the movie rarely lets up. Prepare to be exhausted” when the credits roll.
