Consensus: Jason Bourne delivers fans of the franchise more of what they've come to expect -- which is this sequel's biggest selling point as well as its greatest flaw.

Dmitry Samarov
Chicago Reader

Much of Jason Bourne consists of grim action set pieces interspersed with long sequences of people sitting in front of computer screens. Somehow the movie is simultaneously frenetic and static, going nowhere really, really fast.

Greengrass is as dexterous as ever, yet the result, though abounding in thrills, seems oddly stifled by self-consciousness and, dare one say, superfluous.

Jason Bourne is a good and entertaining action film, but it's also completely unnecessary. There's no longer many secrets left in the closet for this spy. [Full review in Spanish]

Of all the indignities Damon's title character, dug out of retirement after nine years, has to suffer in the disappointing Jason Bourne, the worst is how out-of-touch the new conspiracy he unravels feels

Damon owns the role and the movie. It's a tense, twisty mindbender anchored by something no computer can generate: soul.

Feels like a rote instalment in a franchise that's holding on a little too long,

The movie feels like the work of a capable but uninspired cover band. Before we had Treadstone; now we have re-Treadstone.

Sure, Jason Bourne has all the hallmarks of a story - there are characters who are involved in scenes, and those scenes indicate the forward march of time - but nothing here actually matters.

Although it's not quite up to the standard of the original trilogy, it's nice to see Damon back on patrol.

A generic and not so special plot supported with great action sequences. But delivers nothing new to the table!

Of all the properties to bring back, the Bourne franchise seemed ripe for another outing. Being able to bring Matt Damon and director Paul Greengrass back… More
