In Jason Bourne, the eponym is back in action, running around the planet in a personal vendetta with the director of the CIA. Bourne’s old ally Nicky Parsons is killed trying to pass him some in­for­ma­tion that she’s unearthed about the Treadstone program that turned David Webb into the amnesiac assassin known as Jason Bourne. The CIA director sends a killer known only as the Asset after Bourne, while the fresh-faced head of the Cyber Ops division does her best to keep Bourne alive.

This is a largely un­nec­es­sary sequel to the Bourne franchise. While the action scenes are good, the plot is tired and the characters are un­ap­peal­ing.
