Verdict – 0/5

 

Pros –

1) Thanks, Paul Greengrass for keeping the franchise alive.

 

 
Cons –

1) Dull story; like a Bourne parody. It’s like watching some deleted scenes from an old Jason Bourne film.
2) Stupid editing; weird cuts.
3) Not a single noteworthy action sequence
4) Dumb “Deep Dream” sub-plot.
5) 10 years since we last saw Jason Bourne and still we are wondering about Treadstone, Blackbriar.Instead of being the new adventure of Bourne, it’s Bourne still looking for his identity.
