Number of Times Seen – 2 (29 Nov 2012 and 27 Jul 2017)
Brief Synopsis – A look at another member of the program that Jason Bourne was a part of who’s life is affected by the events of the previous three films.
My Take on it – This was a great addition to the Bourne universe because it gives us an expanded view of the CIA program and how it effects the men and women chosen to be a part of it all.
In addition, its great how we get to see how the events of the three original movies are perceived by those running the “program” which allows them to react to it all.
They are able to keep the thrills quite high because we never really know who can be trusted as the characters continue their globe trot in order to stay ahead of those that are after them.
Jeremy Renner is a great choice as Matt Damon’s replacement and brings a lot of energy to the story and is on par with what Damon was able to do beforehand.
The action scenes are done really well here and the story is exciting and really entertaining to watch unfold.
This is a great addition to the Bourne series and it’s too bad that they held off continuing this storyline and instead made another sequel featuring Matt Damon.
Hopefully, one day, they will continue this storyline.
Bottom Line – Really liked the way that they connected this story to the previous ones which gives us an expanded look at how the whole CIA undercover operative system works. Liked how they keep things quite thrilling because we never know who can be trusted the whole way through. Renner is a great addition to the series and brings enough energy with his character to rival what Damon did in the previous films. Great action scenes make this so entertaining to watch unfold. Definitely a very fun addition to the whole Bourne series. Recommended!
MovieRob’s Favorite Trivia – Daniel Craig visited his wife Rachel Weisz during their shoot in Manila. Producer Frank Marshall was glad to see them together, saying: “It was pretty cool to have James Bond on the ‘Bourne’ set with Aaron Cross. We had a great time. It was really fun.” (From IMDB)
