Story: Jason Bourne, a former CIA assassin is back to being hunted by the agency as he is out to pursue significant truths about a devastating past event involving Treadstone (CIA's black- ops programme) that questions his motives.

Review: With Jason Bourne, Matt Damon reprises his most celebrated screen character for the fourth time after a gap of nine years! Watching him dodge the hitmen with his lightening reflexes and ruthless killing abilities once again, is a sheer delight. His quiet charm and understated aura reminds us why it's hard for other actors (read Jeremy Renner) to step into his shoes as far as the Bourne franchise is concerned.

Here, Damon reunites with Paul Greengrass (one of the best actor-director pairings) who gave us the brilliant The Bourne Supremacy and Ultimatum from the spectacular trilogy. While the duo retains the essence of the series, the spark is missing. Greengrass recreates the quintessential Bourne action replete with high octane chase sequences, fist fights, Bourne disappearing into thin air while making his way through hordes of people and ample gunshots, but you miss Jason Bourne's enigmatic swag and vulnerability.

Damon slips into his character seamlessly even at 46, the flimsy plot, however, weighs him down. He is on the run once again, but his 'emotional reason' for doing so is not compelling enough. To make things cliched and predictable, it doesn't help that CIA asset (Vincent Cassel) has a score to settle with Bourne. The supporting characters lack substance and thus, the cat-and-mouse game between CIA director, Dewey (Tommy Lee Jones) and Bourne is not as riveting either. This makes one wonder if the fourth instalment was required in the first place as it ends up being likeable, but a formulaic remake of the previous three films, minus the thrill.

The highlight of the film is the iconic theme song 'Extreme Ways', which plays during the end credits. It reminds you that Bourne needs a solid script to come out of his 'safe house' if he intends to show up for the fifth time. The series needs to break away from its template if it seeks longevity.
