    Jason Bourne 2016

    ★½ Watched 02 Aug, 2016

    Of all the films released this summer, if you would have asked me in April what movies I thought would be sure fire hits, I would have said Capt America and Jason Bourne. I can't believe the combination of Damon/Greengrass missed this one.

    The story felt all over the place. The whole Dad thread didn't.make any sense. Tommy Lee Jones was a waste. Alicia Viklander is an actress that I cannot figure out. Her American Aceent leaves a lot to be desired as well as her acting in this film. And I'm still baffled.by the ending.

    The Summer of Dsappointment continues on.

    Simply amazing. Last year, I said Cruise was getting too old for action and go back to drama. Cruise has proved me wrong. From the opening scene with the jet to the intense ending, Rogue Nation is the best in the series, the best movie of the year (so far) and one of the best of Cruise's career.

    McQuarrie gets better with each film. Stylistically, he can be repetitive (see car chase in Jack Reacher and Rogue Nation). However, his…
