I’m a huge Bond fan, but I do quite like the Bourne movies too, and so was pretty excited to see this latest one, especially since it sees the return of Matt Damon and Paul Greengrass (as director). It did take me a while to get into it, and I was really weirded out by the odd accent used by Alicia Vikander (an actress I adore). I also thought that the whole social network angle came off as parody more than real company. But by the end of the film, I was pretty into it, and did quite enjoy the chase scene in Las Vegas.
I love the Bourne movies so damn much – well, the original trilogy at least – and so I’m hyped to the max for the Jason Bourne movie this summer (much more than anything else coming out this year, other than Rogue One). After seeing the trailer last week for the new film, it got me in the mood to re-watch all of them (yes, even the Renner one), and so I started on Sunday with The Bourne Identity. It’s still just as good as I remembered it being, although it’s kind of a shock to see Damon looking so young – he’s like a baby.
