It’s been almost 15 years since we first saw Matt Damon figure out his identity while beating up lots of people in the fantastic 2002 action thriller The Bourne Identity. That film was followed by two sequels, and THEN we also got The Bourne Legacy (aka the one without Matt Damon). So you might have thought that the character was done for now, cinematically speaking. Well think again.
Yes, Bourne IS back.
Matt Damon and Paul Greengrass return to the action franchise, as does Julia Stiles, and this time they’ve also got the likes of Tommy Lee Jones, Alicia Vikander, and Vincent Cassel on board. But who will be nursing wounds and bruises by the time the end credits roll? There will only be one way to find out, when Jason Bourne opens here in the UK on July 27th.
