Movie of the Week: Jason Bourne
He'll kill you with a dish cloth
It’s the battle of the sequels this week, with Finding Dory and Jason Bournedropping. Pixar’s offering is fun, though a victim of the studio’s sky-high standards, but the belated fifth entry in the Bourne series is just the ticket, coming on par with the strong third film. Matt Damon returns as the super-spy, who embarks on a surprisingly vague quest taking in Snowden-esque CIA leaks, social media surveillance, and his own murky past. If the plot feels uncertain, no matter: the action truly raises the game, with an extended chase through a riot and a Vegas-set car scene likely to be among the year’s best set pieces.
