I wanted to create a topic to talk about the first three Bourne films: The Bourne Identity (2002), The Bourne Supremacy (2004) and The Bourne Ultimatum (2007) featuring Matt Damon as Jason Bourne. The fourth film called The Bourne Legacy (2012) about a new character called Aaron Cross played by Jeremy Renner. The fifth film, Jason Bourne (2016) with Matt Damon soon to be released. I’m a big fan of the Bourne trilogy for its themes (identity, conspiracy cover ups by those in power), learning more about Jason Bourne’s background in each entry, the performances, the action and Extreme Ways playing over the closing credits. The Bourne Ultimatum is the best installment of the Bourne trilogy. The Bourne Ultimatum has my four favourite moments in the trilogy and those are: the Waterloo station sequence, the on foot chase between Jason Bourne/Desh Bouksani/Nicky Parsons in Tangiers, Jason Bourne ringing Noah Vosen and THAT ending. In second place, The Bourne Identity (I know there’s some who rate it as the best of the series) and The Bourne Supremacy in third. When it comes to film trilogies a weak link can be picked out with ease or with difficulty and The Bourne Supremacy is an example of the latter. The Bourne Supremacy is a very good film but not at the level of the first and third. The Bourne trilogy is one of the best ever film trilogies. The Bourne Legacy has to follow the first three Bourne films which were well received by critics and get people to accept a Bourne film without the title character. I was open to the fourth film providing it’s of the same quality as the brilliant original trilogy. Critically, it wasn’t. I’ve never seen it. I was surprised with the announcement of Jason Bourne as I vaguely remember Matt Damon and director Paul Greengrass said they wouldn’t return without each other and the story had to be right. I hope so and if it is, I’ll be seeing my first film from the series in the cinema. On the off chance it isn’t, least there’s the original trilogy to go back to. I’ve not watched any trailers for the new movie.
