UK English in the US government: on the computer screen about 7 minutes into the movie, when the government server is being breached: "DEPENDANT: JASON BOURNE" is shown. should be "DEPENDENT:..." Dependant is a UK spelling. It's also a common typo in the US. See more »
I want to watch spy thriller. I don't expect superb plot, just classic
Bourne quality will suffice.
Instead, I got served some boring, stomach churning, UN-WATCHABLE 3rd
grade thrill rides...
...with pointless intentionally extra-grating violent chaos sound
effect to top it off!
Seriously? This is how people win awards and next big projects these
The camera simply refuses to let you ignore its SICKED, EVIL PRESENCE -
even during quiet restaurant latte-sipping white table cloth discussion
scene! No, the camera cannot STAY STILL!
The sound has to be cranked to 11 so that old grannies can hear cars
and humans in the process of being DESTROYED!
Apparently, someone reckons bad sound and bad cam work equals bad-ass!
Because the camera guy is so ruined by 90's drugs and partying and
golfing his hands are shaking from premature arthritis!
Oh wait maybe Vomit Cam treatment is actually a necessity! If the cam
stays steadily focused on scene subjects, we will notice how EMPTY the
plot and character design is?
You know, the insecure but loud types, how they refuse to speak
properly, refuse to let you look them straight in the eye and make big
pointless gestures to distract you from their vacuity?
Oh it's not some little insecure guys doing this to us?
It's actually some OVER-CONFIDENT OVERPAID BIG NAME director and his
VIP cam guy buddy showing of their so freaking cool over-the-top latest
hottest virtual reality style run-down-everything- in-your-path
destruction joy rides?
Their sons should introduce them to VR360 car racer games with 100X
more smooth and steady cams?
Who let the grit-craving flabby-brain aging cowboys out of the retiree
Hollywood degenerating into pseudo-angry old man town stuck in (their
still unresolved) teenage angst mode?
Is this how they try to relate to young people? With their mental vomit
and noise plus plus?
I would just laugh this off if I didn't pay extra to watch Bourne in
the premier theater!
Plush sofas and HD sound system just made the whole dizzying ugly audio
visual experience all the more vomit inducing and painful!
Sheesh, Matt Damon, what have you done to your baby franchise? It's
growing into a loud ugly monster and you don't care?
I'm not even that fussy. I'd pay to watch anything entertaining, just
for the ride. It doesn't matter if it's Zootopia or shallow mainstream
aging cowboy spy thriller like James Bond. Bourne series a few notches
of plot realism integrity above James Bond series.
But now it is hijacked. a freak show of VIOLENT CAM MOVING THROUGH THE
"BEST" MOST GRITTIEST DESTRUCTIONSSS!
Maybe I'm just too soft, I don't understand the fun in that sort of
Maybe spy thriller means random excuses to simulate speeding through
explosive riots in European public square full of perishable human
Maybe there's a positive angle in psychotically jamming the latest
product placement posh car into hotel lobbies and unsuspecting CBD
Maybe it's cool to do ANYTHING it takes- including risking the lives of
the commoners - all in the name of catching your personal villain.
LOL Matt Damon. Project Greenlighting anything these days? Feeling
So heroic and worthy. It is important, I'd risk everything. I'd come
out of my unnecessarily brutal and muscular and sweaty existence, back
into the limelight of spy cams. Because?
I WANT ANSWERS!
I don't have to worry too much, the agency is obsessed with me, because
I'm The Only One. Those spy chicks, they always risk their own lives
for me, for really personal reasons. Because I'm hot, so muscled up for
my age, I guess.
Tom Cruise in Mission Impossible has more humor and humanity than the
latest Matt Damon. I mean Bourne. Tom's hero actually laughs at the
ridiculous one man anti-hero trope, actually team-play, actually tries
to do good, actually mocks the (fantasy pretending to be realism spy)
Bourne? Now he tries not to run over too many dogs and pedestrians
while he pulls his self-serving stunts.
How noble of the new Bourne. Noble enough I guess, in the half blind
half deaf perspective of aging cowboys co-producers.
Matt Damon totally wasted his clout, esp when he charges a million a
line. Surely he would notice how awful the production quality is, how
pointless violence brings him down.
But never mind, it's not Damon's job to save the franchise. This genre
is a glut of cliché upon cliché?
If Damon is retiring Bourne then I understand. The aim is achieved.
Tommy was a yawn and the visual rep of post-addict post-arthritis aging
cowboy directors with nothing but gritty bravado to offer.
To watch it or not, depends fully on your tolerance for Vomit Cam. Not
for pregnant women that's for sure. I wish I watched it at home, so I
could frequently go to the fridge when the most exciting as in boring
Vomit Cam sequence start.
Warning: there are 3 of those too-long bore Vomit Cam sequences.
Those undeterred, watch it for Matt's new born physique, Cassel's
sharpness and the subtle lethal Vikander, the sole redeeming thing of
this cowboy wasteland effort.
