Back in 2002, the perfect anti-hero for the new millennium came along in the form of a CIA ops renegade who lost his memory and went on the lam. The Bourne Identity became a hit action franchise, perfect for the times. It spawned several follow-ups including, as I say in my video review (click the link above to watch), 2007’s The Bourne Ultimatum, which not only was the most critically acclaimed and best of the series but also won three Oscars. But it has been almost a decade since that last teaming of star Matt Damon and director Paul Greengrass. A misguided 2012 attempt, The Bourne Legacy, with Jeremy Renner taking over, did nothing to continue that cinematic legacy, so there is much anticipation around the return of Damon and Greengrass with Jason Bourne. The verdict: It’s an exciting and timely re-invention of the series.
