Movie Review: Jason Bourne (2016)

This movie is the third of a series.  It has a way of rehashing the same formula, but also keeping the story line interesting.  This movie brings back Matt Damon as Jason Bourne, a man trained as a killing machine by the government, but who has rejected the program.  However he is always seen as a liability, and subject to government attempts to put him down.  In this case he is drawn into the fray, as someone else, Nicky Parsons ( Julie Stiles) hacks into the CIA computer and steals the information about Bourne.  It is assumed Bourne is behind the breaking in, and that he intends to release the information to embarrass the CIA.  CIA Director Robert Dewey (Tommy Lee Jones) brings in an asset (Vincent Cassel) to take care of Bourne.  He also is going to use him to take care of Aaron Kalloor (Riz Ahmed) a computer mogul who is reneging on an agreement to put a back door in his computer soft ware so the CIA can access everybody's information.  Heather Lee (Alicia Vikander) is a CIA computer specialist, but she plays a much bigger roll in the end as she attempts to befriend Bourne.  Hair raising finish to this movie, with a little twist dangling for the next in the series.
I didn't find a great theme or moral, just action from start to finish to keep you entertained and jumping.  I think Sheri likes this type of movie more than I.
