Jason Bourne

JasonBournePosterRating: M

Starring: Matt Damon, Julia Stiles, Alicia Vikander, Tommy Lee Jones

Synopsis: Jason Bourne, now remembering who he truly is, tries to uncover hidden truths about his past.



Why you should care: After an ill-advised attempt to continue the franchise without Damon, Universal has come to their senses and recruited him and director Paul Greengrass back into the fold. Spy games, awesome stunts, Matt looking mean, shaky cam… you know what you’re getting, but when it’s put together so well, you won’t care.

Who should see it: Bourne buffs and action addicts
