MEGAMOUW’s review published on Letterboxd:
Before you read this review please note I have never seen a Jason Bourn movie before. Also please note that my entire family was going to the movies, three people wanted to see "the secret life of pets" and three wanted to see this movie. I wanted to see "star trek beyond" but it was playing at a later time. I told myself I did not want to see pets so I went into this movie not knowing what to expect (I knew the basic idea of him being an agent who doesn't know his past, SPOILERS: he does now or something). That being said, EH. first off, I swear there was not a single shot that used a tripod, so the entire film was shaky and blurry (gave me a bit of a headache). the plot was kindof interesting but there wasn't really a clear beginning middle or end, it just sort of happens. It could of helped to see the other films but none of the characters really made since, WHO WAS TRYING TO KILL WHO FOR WHAT, AND WHO IS THIS GUY AND WHY DOES HE MATTER. I don't know if this counts as a spoiler (you've been warned) but what is Jason Bourns trying to do, is he trying not to die, or is he trying to find out his past? I felt no emotion throughout the film and didn't care for the characters (must have helped to see the other films) they all seemed bland and robotic with almost no motive. The fight sequences went on to long and got boring as well. If at this point in the review your thinking I hate this film, I don't, I'm just not a huge fan of this level of violence and if anything good came from this move it was the last five minutes were pretty good. soooo yeah, I would recommend the movie, but if your a fan by all means enjoy it. I don't know, maybe I'm just not smart enough to understand this genius piece of art.
