More Info:
  • Kenneth Turan

    Made with a palpable sense of urgency, this tense, propulsive motion picture is a model of what mainstream entertainment can be like when everything goes right.

    Los Angeles Times Full Review
  • Steve Persall

    What could be a cash grab turns out to be the series' finest chapter, with the same piano-wire tension plus a narrative clarity lacking before.

    Tampa Bay Times Full Review
  • Robert Abele

    This fourth entry after a nine-year break for Damon and Greengrass should represent, for those ready and able to separate popcorn mayhem from the grim realities of world headlines, a bruising and exhilarating ride.

    TheWrap Full Review
  • James Berardinelli

    Despite regurgitating elements from the founding trilogy, Jason Bourne represents the best the series has yet offered.

    ReelViews Full Review
  • Peter Travers

    Through it all, Damon keeps us glued to the war going on inside Bourne's head. It's a brilliantly implosive performance; he owns the role and the movie. It's a tense, twisty mindbender anchored by something no computer can generate: soul.

    Rolling Stone Full Review
  • Calvin Wilson

    Working from a screenplay that he co-wrote with Christopher Rouse, director Paul Greengrass has come up with a post-Snowden film that delivers nonstop thrills.

    St. Louis Post-Dispatch Full Review
  • Richard Roeper

    Jason Bourne is the best action thriller of the year so far, with a half-dozen terrific chase sequences and fight scenes.

    Chicago Sun-Times Full Review
  • Leah Greenblatt

    Director Paul Greengrass (Captain Phillips, United 93) has always had a taste for the topical and political, and his third Bourne outing augments the usual truth-and-justice talking points with a strenuously current nod to digital privacy issues via a Zuckerberg-like social-media mogul (Riz Ahmed). If anything, he underplays those assets, shorting deeper story development for exotic zip codes, bang-up fisticuffs, and adrenalized chase scenes.

    Entertainment Weekly Full Review
  • Jimi Famurewa

    Yes, Jason Bourne basically amounts to a trio of action set-pieces elegantly strung together. But who really cares when they’re this impressive?

    Empire Full Review
  • Peter Debruge

    This explosive reunion between Damon and director Paul Greengrass further reveals key secrets about Bourne’s origins, bringing its lethal protagonist as close as he’s ever likely to get to total recall.

    Variety Full Review
  • Peter Rainer

    Other welcome faces include Alicia Vikander as a CIA analyst who has a better bead on Bourne than her superiors; Julia Stiles, in a repeat appearance as the spy’s former contact; and Riz Ahmed as a Silicon Valley billionaire.

    Christian Science Monitor Full Review
  • Michael Phillips

    At its best Jason Bourne crackles with professionalism; at its worst, it's rehashing greatest hits (as in, "assassinations") from earlier films, with a lavish budget.

    Chicago Tribune Full Review
  • Tim Grierson

    Its smooth efficiency offers plenty of sturdy pleasures. What’s missing are the emotional underpinnings that made these movies not just top-flight action vehicles but also stirringly soulful.

    Screen International Full Review
  • Todd McCarthy

    Up until a narratively implausible and logistically ridiculous climactic motorcycle chase through Vegas that feels like a sop to the Fast & Furious crowd, Jason Bourne is an engrossing re-immersion in the violent and mysterious world of Matt Damon's shadowy secret op.

    The Hollywood Reporter Full Review
  • Rodrigo Perez

    For all its problems, Bourne is still thrilling and an undoubtedly engrossing action film thanks to its taut construction.

    The Playlist Full Review
  • Steven Rea

    The tradecraft is there, the film craft is there, but the craftiness of a great concept is gone. Any way Bourne can go through Treadstone again?

    Philadelphia Inquirer Full Review
  • Kyle Smith

    I love the series, but Jason Bourne is the worst of the five.

    New York Post Full Review
  • Ty Burr

    It exists for no other reason than that people like Matt Damon, they like him as this character, and the producers know audiences are willing to see more of him.

    Boston Globe Full Review
  • Moira Macdonald

    The movie gets lost in its focus on flash and speed, and forgets about the man — and the fine, quiet actor — at its center.

    The Seattle Times Full Review
  • Bill Goodykoontz

    Should you see it? Sure. The absolutely absurd, over-the-top Vegas chase scene assures you’ll get your money’s worth in ridiculousness. (Not all of Greengrass’ set pieces are smart.) But in truth, you’ll be there because it’s a Bourne movie, and you’ll like it a little better than you should because it is.

    Arizona Republic Full Review
  • Stephanie Zacharek

    Greengrass, a meticulous, thoughtful filmmaker (he also directed the second and third films in the series, The Bourne Supremacy and The Bourne Ultimatum), clearly believes in what he’s doing. But his earnestness is at odds with the movie’s desperate, frenetic desire to keep us engaged every minute.

    Time Full Review
  • A.O. Scott

    The tedium, I would argue, is not incidental but essential, because this is not really a spy thriller or even a foot-chase and fist-fight-driven action movie, but rather a somber meditation on the crisis of the Gen-X professional in the throes of middle age.

    The New York Times Full Review
  • Jordan Farley

    Leagues ahead of Legacy but the weakest of the Matt Damon movies, Bourne still has the power to thrill. But it seems his story has run out of steam.

    Total Film Full Review
  • Tom Huddleston

    When the talking stops the film takes off, with a pair of bone-rattling chases set in Athens and Las Vegas that cause maximum damage to people, property and the audience’s eardrums. A bracing reminder of how fiercely efficient Greengrass can be, these scenes just about justify the existence of Jason Bourne. But, please, no more.

    Time Out London Full Review
  • Ben Nicholson

    The political commentary feels far more explicitly pointed and widely integral than in previous incarnations which adds a bold new dynamic where perhaps the same re-inventive verve is lacking in the film's formulaic story. Fortunately, Greengrass and Damon are so in command of this material it's rarely too much of a concern. Even when little of substance seems to be happening, the narrative feels propulsive.

    CineVue Full Review
  • Tim Robey

    Hunting Bourne is more than ever a business now, with a bottom line to worry about, a crowd to please, and presumably hasty deadlines to meet. It’s not that there’s no pause for thought in this still-good-fun episode. There’s just not enough thought in the pauses.

    The Telegraph Full Review
  • Peter Bradshaw

    The Snowden/social media plotline of this film does a bit to make Bourne more relevant. But the ingredients are basically the same.

    The Guardian Full Review
  • Barry Hertz

    While Jason Bourne isn’t half-bad as an action movie, it is a nakedly hollow exercise in resuscitating brand loyalty.

    The Globe and Mail (Toronto) Full Review
  • David Edelstein

    As an actor, Matt Damon has too much integrity to pretend he can multitask to that advanced degree and still be, you know, a fun person. So he turns his face into a mask of stoicism and gives the dullest performance of his career.

    New York Magazine (Vulture) Full Review
  • Brian Tallerico

    When it’s over, even viewers more eager to forgive this failed creative reunion will wonder what it is that they just watched, and what purpose it serves other than financial. And why no one figured out a new, engaging way to tell a story that’s already been told. Full Review
  • Michael O'Sullivan

    Jason Bourne belongs to Damon and Greengrass, whose admirable — and entirely appropriate — goal of playing it for kicks comes across, this time around, as an oddly joyless chore.

    Washington Post Full Review
  • A.A. Dowd

    Rather than push this character or story forward, the film cravenly hits the reset button, doing more of the same with much less passion and skill.

    The A.V. Club Full Review
  • Marjorie Baumgarten

    This current film smartly adds material that keeps it up-to-date with the reality of today’s sophisticated electronic surveillance. The series may become a marker by which we come to gauge the future disappearance of all personal privacy. For the sake of the series’ endurance, I hope so, but for the sake of the rest of us, I hope not.

    Austin Chronicle Full Review
  • Brian Truitt

    The movie is a by-the-numbers action film that's not nearly as strong as its Damon-led predecessors.

    USA Today Full Review
  • Drew McWeeny

    There are scenes I dug and a few set-pieces that work, and there’s an overall level of intensity that I like from director Paul Greengrass. Taken as a whole, though, this is very familiar territory, and I just don’t care when the stakes are this low and the violence is this rough.

    Hitfix Full Review
  • Michael Roffman

    There’s just not a lot of weight to this sequel, at least not enough to dissuade anyone from seeing this as anything but a limpid cash grab.

    Consequence of Sound Full Review
  • Roger Moore

    The visceral visuals make this a barely-serviceable/watchable summer popcorn picture. But the bar was set high too long ago for that to be enough for America’s Bond.

    Movie Nation Full Review
  • Erin Whitney

    While a reunion between Greengrass and Damon should feel like a refreshing extension of the franchise, Jason Bourne is just another replica, and an unnecessary one. The familiar pieces are in place, but it adds nothing that Greengrass hadn’t already accomplished. Maybe its best we let Jason Bourne retire for good.

    ScreenCrush Full Review
  • Eric Kohn

    Jason Bourne adheres to an existing format so robotically that it never manages to surprise or engage for longer than the occasional passing moment.

    indieWIRE Full Review
  • Tasha Robinson

    Eventually, even perpetual pursuit gets dull, and Jason Bourne finds that point early, then just keeps charging monotonously forward.

    The Verge Full Review
  • Joe Morgenstern

    Bourne used to be an anguished amnesiac. Now he remembers who he is, but this fourth episode of the franchise forgot to make him human.

    Wall Street Journal Full Review
  • Mike Scott

    While the result is an often fast-moving and very Damon-y Jason Bourne, it doesn't at all feel as original or as well crafted as the series once did.

    New Orleans Times-Picayune Full Review
  • Bilge Ebiri

    Even when it comes to life, Jason Bourne offers very little that could stand on its own; its best scenes remind you of even better ones in the earlier films. There's a greatest-hits quality to the movie, only the band is tired and its heart isn't in it.

    Village Voice Full Review
  • Stephen Whitty

    Once the story drags Bourne out of retirement, it's just a bunch of fights and chase scenes, only occasionally interrupted by a few lines of dialogue.

    New York Daily News Full Review
  • Lawrence Toppman

    This stale, redundant story goes round in the same tight circles, revealing one piddling new secret and containing one unconvincing change of character.

    Charlotte Observer Full Review
  • Jake Cole

    One of the more admirable traits of the original Bourne trilogy is how little pleasure it takes in its violence, but Jason Bourne revels in its vicious action sequences.

    Slant Magazine Full Review
  • Amy Nicholson

    I've rarely seen so much effort for so little thrill.

    MTV News Full Review
  • Michael Snydel

    Simultaneously pretentious, mind-numbingly tedious, and dizzyingly incoherent from scene to scene, Jason Bourne is the definition of diminishing returns.

    The Film Stage Full Review
  • Mick LaSalle

    The character motivations are weak, and the story is poorly structured. But its camera work, possibly intended to distract audiences from the movie’s flaws, only compounds its problems. It distances the audience and makes Jason Bourne a chore to sit through.

    San Francisco Chronicle Full Review
  • Anthony Lane

    Greengrass is as dexterous as ever, yet the result, though abounding in thrills, seems oddly stifled by self-consciousness and, dare one say, superfluous. Come on, guys. There are so many wrongs in the world. If Bourne could tear himself away from the mirror for a moment, could he not be persuaded to go and right them?
