The movie is similar to the previous Bourne movies in storytelling and action sequences, which is good. At first the movie is a bit slow but it's understandable since they are explaining everything and the ending is set for sequels. Jeremy Renner is a perfect for the continuation of the saga that Matt Damon left off. And Rachel Weisz is good too as his love interest. The action sequences in Manila were good.

But not the best either. The storyline was decent, and could have done without the references to the past Bourne movies. The fast action chase scene was filmed horribly. There is a limit for fast camera moves during a high speed chase and this crossed the line. Just when I felt the story was starting to move along the movie ended, rather abruptly....not quite as bad as Matrix: reloaded, but close. I own all three other Bourne movies and although I do like Jeremy Renner, I will not be buying this one when it's released on Blu-ray/DVD.

I thought it was a good movie. It was a little hard to follow in parts trying to figure out how it related to Jason Bourne. Good action sequences. Jeremy Renner was good in the part but I liked Matt Damon better. If you are a Bourne fan I think it is worth the time to see this one.

There is a lot of action in this film. However, for the first hour the film is a bit confusing. The central character is in the wilderness taking different colored pills and the explanation is not given until much later. If one stays with the film this is eventually explained and once the action begins it is quite thrilling. It holds to film version of the Bourne franchise. As is true with most Hollywood films the special effects, acting and other components are first rate.

The movie was overall really good. It does start off a little slow then it kicks in. You just have to be patient. The story was really good and dialouge was just like any other Bourne movie. Honestly-if you havn't seen the 1st 3 Bourne movies, then you won't get this one until you do. Also the scenery was at quality, nothing that special if you know what i mean?
Go see it!!!
