Jason Bourne DVD review

The fifth installment of the Bourne Films and is the sequel of the Bourne Ultimatum, but if you are already a fan of the movie franchise you would already know this and this would have been one of your highly anticipated films for 2016. If you watched the honest trailer on Bourne Trilogy you can’t help but feel that the plot hardly moves in this installment and yet it still delivers the right amount of intrigue and action.

Jason Bourne finally recovered from amnesia, successfully attempting to stay off the radar and making a living by taking part in illegal fighting rings. He is unexpectedly forced out of the shadows to resume his former life as a trained assassin when he is framed for a CIA operation gone awry. This finds him constantly on the run from CIA hit squads but being the multitasker he is, Jason also tries to uncover hidden truths about his father.

The movie was also nominated for 10 awards from Best Action Movie to Outstanding Visual effects from separate Film and Critic’s choice Award institutions. So it’s a guaranteed to deliver the pulsating sequences we have all become accustomed to from Bourne movies, from turning mundane objects into deadly weapons in close hand to hand combat then moving onto amazing chase sequences.
