It's just like old times. Once again, Bourne hurtles from one grey and gritty European metropolis to another at breathtaking speed... And once again, Greengrass stages the action with bone-jarring immediacy.
August 18, 2016
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.

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
August 1, 2016
The movie feels like the work of a capable but uninspired cover band. Before we had Treadstone; now we have re-Treadstone.
August 1, 2016
Greengrass is as dexterous as ever, yet the result, though abounding in thrills, seems oddly stifled by self-consciousness and, dare one say, superfluous.
July 31, 2016
If you've ever enjoyed a Bourne film, you'll like this one as much as any of them. Can't say fairer than that.
July 29, 2016
Damon owns the role and the movie. It's a tense, twisty mindbender anchored by something no computer can generate: soul.
July 29, 2016
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.
July 29, 2016
Greengrass stages three breathless marquee action sequences, including a smash-em-up car chase down the Las Vegas Strip that would make even the "Fast and Furious" gang stop and gawk.
July 29, 2016
The experience of Jason Bourne may ironically work best for those who are able to put past chapters out of their mind and just thrill to the movement on the screen.
July 29, 2016
The biggest disappointment, among many, for Greengrass's reboot of the franchise he and Damon had abandoned for a decade is how divorced Bourne is from his original species.
Top Critic
July 29, 2016
Director Paul Greengrass refuses to tangle with any of the true-life topics he's borrowing for gravitas
July 29, 2016
This new installment in the series is one of the better ones.
July 29, 2016
There is a palpable sense of déjà vu, despite being in the capable hands of director Paul Greengrass once again.
July 28, 2016
While Greengrass lacks the poetic flair of a director such as Michael Mann, he has his own assured, breathless style, characterised by rapid editing, flash pans and jolting zooms.
July 28, 2016
There is something hypnotic in the film's total dedication to the idea of speed as an end in itself.
July 28, 2016
Despite regurgitating elements from the founding trilogy, Jason Bourne represents the best the series has yet offered.
July 28, 2016
Even when Jason Bourne doesn't click with the same rhythm as its predecessors, it has a weight that outclasses nearly every other big action movie around.
July 28, 2016
Director Paul Greengrass tries to up the perambulatory drama with lots of cuts, swishes, jiggles, and wobbles from his camera and swellings from his soundtrack, but the energy just isn't there.
July 28, 2016
Made with a palpable sense of urgency, this tense, propulsive motion picture is a model of what mainstream entertainment can be like when everything goes right.
